Join us for a weekend long Masterclass with famed, visiting LA acting coach Craig Archibald. 


“As a conservatory-trained classical actress, it took me a long time to find an acting coach in LA for TV/Film. I tried all the “big” ones who were either disrespectful, too gimmick-y, too emo/indulgent, too self-congratulatory and they all lacked the emotional courage, depth and intelligence I make a priority in my work. I finally found that in Craig. He’s artistic, personal, intelligent, honest, and authentic. He helps you take command of your career as an artist and as a businessperson. He will help you learn how to dig deep (when you’re ready to) even in seemingly blah material. I can’t count the number of times I wrote off a script as “merely expository dialogue” or “bad writing” then took it to Craig and unsurfaced a very workable emotional life of the character and the story. Oh, and after a year of working with Craig (it takes time, there are no quick fixes), I went from being a waitress with zero callbacks to being a full-time working actor with a near 100% callback rate. All of which I hugely owe to my work with Craig. If you’re ready for a real change in your career, you should come to Craig and you should stick with him for the long haul.”
