On-Camera Acting Classes for Adults

Since 2003, Next Actor Films, a SAG-AFTRA signatory company, has been training on-camera acting to students of all ages, in order to make them a superior performer in front of the camera and learn the difference of film and stage. It is the only Studio in Texas that teaches Stanislavski Method Acting to adults and teens
of different levels. 

The focus of our studio is to support and develop a core group of dedicated and passionate actors for screen who are able to work in our in-house productions as well as outside as a professional. 
Our teachers are working actors, editors, filmmakers and producers with years of training and experience with both on and behind the camera.

Students are encouraged to participate in every aspect of filmmaking in order to grow as a complete actor and a true artist. Our film lab has helped many students to get their IMDb credits and film resume started by casting them in shorts and features.
