For the actor (or the actor within) Montana Film Actor’s Studio in Bozeman provides monthly meetings in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We teach acting for film and the business of film acting with a little life-coaching thrown in for your self-esteem.
Now beginning its 7th season, members of the studio get hands-on experience, inspiration, education and insight into the film business in and from Montana. It’s also a place to network and socialize with other actors and filmmakers.
Meetings include instruction with Casting Director (and director of MAS) Tina Buckingham who boasts almost 40 years in the business. Her primary job has been to find talent for feature films and commercials, and she has worked on many of the movies filmed in Montana. She teaches from the Casting Director’s point-of-view. Most meetings include scene-study and cold reading with video playback for critique. In addition we have other opportunities including guest speakers and table readings of full film scripts.
There will be a special introductory meeting on Wednesday, September 25th from 5:30 to 6:30 in the small meeting room of the Bozeman Public Library, followed by the 1st monthly meeting of the new year from 7:00-9:00.
