Actor's School USA
TV Star, Actor, Director, Producer - Alan Dysert has over 30 years in the entertainment industry. He has helped over 3,000 students reach their potential.

The Actor’s School Has Just Added a 2nd
State-of-the-Art Taping Studio at our Franklin Studio
for Filmed Auditions and Actor Demos

The acting world has changed radically over the last 5 years. No longer can an actor expect to attract the attention of agents, casting directors, producers and directors with just a headshot and resume. Actors are now expected to have an example of their acting abilities available to be viewed by those that hire and represent actors. Since this is the age of video and the internet, actors are in a better position than ever to be able to present their talents to decision makers. Auditions are now filmed by the actors themselves and emailed to casting directors for projects all over the world. Actors are making acting demos just like singers have been making singing demos for decades. You can have more control of your image and your work than ever before. They only see you – as you want to be seen. We have been filming actor auditions for network series, pilots and major motion pictures for 5 years now. We know what they are looking for and we know how to get it to them. We believe we can make a huge difference in your image and your career.

Prices for Actor Demos and Filmed Auditions:

From $85 per hour to $150 per hour

The price depends on these factors:
1. Which studio is used
2. Which director is doing the filming
3. Will coaching be needed as well
4. The size of the crew
