Project Description

Acting classes at Berg Studios have been recognized by students throughout Los Angeles, as being both unique in the approach to the development of technique and incredibly valuable. Each class is tailored to a specific experience level, giving each student the opportunity to work from where they are. Classes are structured for individualized attention to ensure that each student gets to work as much as possible in every class.

Studio Technique I

Our Introduction to Studio Technique classes walk students through fundamental of the studio technique. They are generally taught by one of the studio instructors. Classes concentrate on the key fundamentals of technique, with a special focus on physical expression and imagination. Exercises are introduced in a format that allows students to thoroughly build specificity.​

While students in Studio Technique I and II are expected to work in every class, in Studio Technique III and IV this is not always the case. Substantial time is dedicated to the discussion and exploration of technique during and in between every scene, with Mr. Berger often taking time to very specifically explain certain acting challenges. This class/instructor participation is fundamental to the work that is done in these classes. Students should be prepared to actively engage in questions and discussion of their classmates’ scenes while being ready to show their own scenes at least twice a month.

Studio Technique II

These classes are dedicated to fostering the development of technique by further expanding the actor’s imagination. The structure of this class is a creative learning laboratory that gives students more freedom to apply skills in new ways.

Studio Technique III

These classes focus on pushing the actor into full imaginative release.  It is necessary to first understand the fundamentals of technique to allow the actor to play with bold, imaginative choices inspired by the text and releasing the actor into the world of play.

Students in the Studio Technique III & IV classes are expected to maintain a high standard of work. If a student does not work consistently at the expected level, they may be asked to move to another class.  There is no tolerance for absences, or lack of preparation, in any class.​

Studio Technique IV

This class examines the creative process as it is applied on set and in auditions. Students are challenged to simultaneously express themselves in bold and extraordinary ways.​

Students in the Studio Technique III & IV classes are expected to maintain a high standard of work. If a student does not work consistently at the expected level, they may be asked to move to another class.  There is no tolerance for absences, or lack of preparation, in any class.​
