All our acting classes are on-camera and our acting students use their filmed scenes to get agents and managers. You work a minimum of 30 minutes in every class! We work with students of all ages and have the smallest number of students of any acting school in Los Angeles, so that we can give each student personal attention with lots of time to act in every class.
In these acting classes you always act from film and TV scripts, using the principles from Sandford Meisner’s book ON ACTING as teaching tools – while drawing from the best of all the great acting teaching methods including Stanislavsky, The Actors Studio, The Group Theater, Scene Study and Improvisation.
David’s classes give you the real-world approach to professional acting in Hollywood, without phony hype or slick gimmicks, giving you the on-camera acting, audition. scene study, and cold reading skills you need to effectively compete to get work. Look at the Acting Jobs Brag Board to see actors just like you, getting work all the time!
Your talent to be a fine actor comes from your instincts. At David Kagen’s Film Acting School, you will learn how to be emotionally free and completely spontaneous when you perform a scene, enabling you to express your instinctive emotional responses to everything that’s going on in the scene.Learn more by clicking on the link to David’s blog below. more about our acting classes…

“GEORGE GALLAGHER, delivering a fiercely physical, compelling turn”- Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
“In David’s acting classes I was immediately struck by how perceptive the teachers are and how quickly I was able to move through blocks in my acting that had been there for years. They got me “out of my own way”. I have had more “epiphanies” from these guys than anyone else”
