Acting is A State of Mind

with John Pallotta


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.  Our actors have gone on to perform in such projects as The Americans, Billions, The Blacklist, Blind Spot, Blue Bloods, Broad City, Deadbeat, Difficult, People, Divorce, Elementary, The Family, The Get Down, The Good Girls Revolt, The Good Wife, Gotham, House of Cards, I Shudder, Law and Order SVU. Limitless, Madam Secretary, The Mysteries of Laura, Orange Is the New Black, The Path, The Perfect Murder, Person of Interest, Power, Ringside, Royal Pains, Shades of Blue, Saturday Night Live, Special Victims Unit, Tiara, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, VEEP, Vinyl, The Young Pope, Younger and much, much more.
