How it started

Act ALIVE!

The Act ALIVE! exercises were developed in the Andi Matheny Acting Studios as a way to accelerate the students' understanding of the organic nature of TV and film acting. They combine mining the actor's personal experience with applications of pragmatic technique. As a result of this groundbreaking approach, the actor gets on their feet and connected to scripts quickly!

Mission

We are on a mission to created working actors! Actors with no previous experience have booked roles on TV shows like Ozark, David Makes Man, Bloodline, Good Girls, Tell Me a Story, The Right Stuff, films like Jurassic World, Hidden Figures, Mrs. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Gifted and many more!
