Actor Flexibility

Even though the season is 6 months in length, all students have the option of discontinuing after 1 month or continuing on in a monthly basis until the end of the 6 month season.

After the first month, actors may come and go and with proper notification will be welcomed back on a week to week basis.  You only pay for the weeks you attend the lab/series.

All actors who complete the 6 month season will have the option of renewing for another 6 month season on a month to month basis.


With acting in an real working series you will receive IMDb credit and a professional and polished demo reel upon successful completion of the season, even if you only are involved for as little as a month.  All demo reels and credits will be issued at the end of each season.

Also you get FREE complimentary head shots after your first 4 weeks of attending the lab.

If an actor drops out before their obligation is fulfilled all benefits will be void.
