We get it. Your rent, your health insurance, and the very invalidation of your life choices are at stake every audition. And left unchecked, the gut-punch of bad feedback or the deafening silence or indifference start to make you stray from what books work. It makes you fear the audition and expect to be disappointed. Your work begins to narrow and your artistry eventually dies.
To book work, you must let go and let your unique artistry propel you into the room like a conquering hero. Questions like, “what do I wear?” “where do I look?” “should I sit or should I stand?” are the questions of an amateur. Champions let the work affect them, have a strong point of view and make bold choices that are guided by their well-tuned instincts. And after doing that work, they walk in the room and boldly offer their work with muscular generosity. The Audition Revolution is an 8-Week Class that shows you how to step boldly into the light of your unique artistry and burn the audition room to the ground with your talent.
BY APPLICATION OR INVITATION ONLY.

- I cannot overstate how great the Audition Revolution was. The passion and compassion they bring, the professionalism and deep respect for both the art and the artist–all these qualities make them extraordinary. I unhesitatingly recommend them to any actor, at any stage of the business. Oh, and it was REALLY fun.Harley Jane Kozak ARACHNOPHOBIA
- First and foremost, I cannot express my gratitude enough for the space that you've created for actors to re-learn and re-connect with themselves without judgment. This has been an amazing 8 weeks of discovery and regaining of ownership/power in my work that I hadn't realized I was surrendering for one reason or another. I feel more alive, grateful, excited, curious and above all TRUSTING of exactly who I am and what I have to offer, as an actor and as a human being. The way I perceive/approach life has shifted in ways I never anticipated. No amount of thank you's would be enough to accurately represent that. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.Rocky Collins VIDEO GAME HIGH SCHOOL
- The best experience I have had training in Los Angeles. I took The Audition Revolution and worked with the most incredible teachers. I was able to recognize my resistance and also I understood fully not to separate the audition from the fun and play of acting. This weekend has opened the draw bridge. I am so pleased to have found MY creative gym!Henry Hereford CROSSBONES
