Project Description

Berg Studios is excited to announce a new ongoing ONLINE scene study class with Gregory Berger starting in September! This class will be held on Zoom, Thursdays from 11 AM to 2 PM PST.

Gregory Berger has developed an approach that is twofold: first providing the actor with tools to make bold, imaginative choices from the text, and then leading them to find their own spontaneous behavior. In doing so, the actor’s task shifts from self-consciously asking “What do I look like?” to examining “What do I see?” We believe that this foundation is applicable to film, television, and stage, across all genres and media.

If you are interested in this new class please send your headshot and resume to or call us at 323-666-3382. Please note that in order to attend class with Mr. Berger you must enroll in our online Bootcamp program simultaneously.
