With a keen eye and unending mastery John Pallotta vision's the actor inside of you and like a craftsman, he pulls that vision into reality. His philosophy changes you from wanting to be an actor to understanding the Human Condition. He sees our potential as human beings and teaches his students to free their true nature through acting. John is as good if not better then the mentors & masters that taught him.


Our actors are given opportunities they won’t find in any other acting class, including intensive camera work and on-set, on-location study, where students get a chance to explore all facets of film work, from lighting, soundg, location scouting and directing to working with each other on camera on a professional set. You put all this together and the result, we’ve found, is students coming out of our studio more prepared for not just the business, but life in general.
