Los Angeles, CA, May 03, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Actor’s Close Up, a new player in the Casting Workshop community, has drawn enormous attention for offering a great special for those already signed up with any of their competition.
When actors show their current membership from any casting workshop in town they will get a free membership to ACU for their first year. It's noteworthy because it means ACU’s workshops are usually $10 to $15 cheaper per session than most Casting Director workshops in Los Angeles but have the same elite Casting Directors coming in for the workshops and ACU's workshops are held at former ICM building in Beverly Hills - an ideal location for these workshops. Now, if actors have already become members at one of their competition's locations, they can join ACU for free and get the same opportunities the other membership has offered them, but with more services and a more conducive environment.
Thyme Lewis and Satiar Pourvasei, the co-founders of ACU, have set up a more intimate opportunity for actors to meet with, perform in front of and learn from these top Casting Directors. “We want to create an atmosphere that allows every actor to get the best opportunity to learn from these top Casting Directors and to display their talents,” says Thyme. “We’re seeing more and more ACU Members getting auditions and booking work! That’s how we know we’re doing this right."
Actor’s Close-Up has created a venue that promotes the concept of “community” within the acting world. With membership comes access to discounted in-house photography for headshots, a screening room, meeting rooms, rehearsal stations and lounges and just announced, ACU Reels - a soup to nuts service to help actors shoot, edit and finalize actor reels. “The amenities that are included with our membership embrace the concept of 'community' for our actors by offering a wide range of services,” says Satiar. “Our members have this amazing facility to step into and to utilize -- whether it's shooting with our in-house photographer, holding a circle read in one of our conference rooms, or screening your independent film in our screening room. These additional services make us a premier facility and as well as our great workshops at a really low price." The results speak for themselves. "At Actor’s Close-Up we give you the opportunity to learn from the top industry professionals, in an audition-like setting, specifically designed to get you comfortable with the audition process and perfect your audition technique, while strengthening and displaying your talents. At Actor's Close-Up, we give you the tools and the opportunities, and then…who knows?” he says with a sly smile.
Located at 8942 Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills, this exciting venture offers free covered parking after 6 pm and weekends along with a beautiful facility to make every actor feel comfortable and safe. They invite you for a tour online at the actorscloseup.com website.
