SMASH THE AUDITION - IGNITE THE PERFORMANCE
OUR SIMPLE, YET DYNAMIC TEACHING METHOD WILL GET YOU READY FOR A BUSY CAREER IN FILM, T.V. AND VOICEOVER
Mastering your craft takes passion, commitment, and the wisdom to know that success is never a linear path. As a student with the Brian Cutler Actors Studio, you will enjoy unlimited freedom and encouragement to explore your craft as a lifelong acting journey. Ever wondered, “Where are the best acting classes near me?” Let us show you the Brian Cutler Actors Studio advantage. Taught exclusively by film and T.V. veteran Brian Cutler, you won’t find a better acting studio in Los Angeles.
Our method of on-camera acting is the best way to prepare actors for the hustle of a busy filmset. Every class is recorded in a true two-camera shoot that replicates the kind of tight working space that working actors will encounter on a daily basis. Editing is done in real-time and students are able to see exactly how well they synch on the small or big screen. Our students learn together. Beginners work directly with working actors. Following each scene, there is a useful discussion of each performance. In addition, students are given a digital copy of the scene for later study. Our acting philosophy enables us to zero-in on specifics that will grow you, both as an actor and a human being.
We build confidence through our method of basic instinct and valuable insights stemming from years spent performing in front of cameras. As important as success, the freedom to fail without criticism is a key component of our teaching philosophy. Our method allows students the freedom to work moment by moment and impulse by impulse without fear of harsh criticism from instructors or other actors.
Our primary mission is to prepare actors to work in real-world conditions. Charles E. Conrad said, “Learning to act for the camera without a camera is like learning to ride a horse without a horse.” With that in mind, we create a working-set environment, just like what will be encountered on any acting job. We produce a true two-camera shoot for every class and give each student a digital copy for review.
We train to act for the camera, on a crowded set in front of creatives and crew. From the start, our actors learn the importance of focus and camera techniques in order to maximize their performance and movement within those limitations. We keep class size low to ensure that every student is performing every week.
With a support group made-up of both less- experienced students and actual working professionals, we prepare you for real-world acting. There is no competition or harsh criticism from teachers or fellow actors. We come together to grow as performers and to learn from each other. We’re looking for progress, not perfection.

Professional actors know that their craft is always a team effort. To interact with other students in a scene often elevates both performances. It can also turn a serious process into a fun one. In some special situations, private coaching can be essential. You may need help preparing for a big audition, coaching for an unfamiliar role or just want some intensive one on one sessions to accelerate the learning process. As a private acting coach, Brian Cutler the star of The Secrets of Isis applies his decades of acting experience into concentrated, personal guidance. Private coaching is designed around the singular needs of the student, and is available as 30, 60, or 90-minute sessions.
