ACTING IN ENGLISH
All classes are learning opportunities and not auditions or guarantees of employment. Our goal is to raise the level of knowledge about the auditioning process. Detailed lesson plans for all classes are available upon request.
Casting has gone global! This means that directors, producers and casting directors are on the search for international talent for their film and TV projects more and more. It is essential for actors to speak clearly and be comfortable with self tapes and cold readings.

Private Training & Self Tape Sessions
Luis works with many well known and working Spanish actors in assisting them with their accent reduction and self tape needs for projects abroad. This training is a part of the educational accent reduction and pronunciation assistance iniciative.
Self tapes are shot using Luis's casting experience and knowledge of how US castings directors prefer to receive auditions. All videos are shot with a full HD Panasonic Ag-Ac30 camera in a professional studio with 3-point lighting.
It's always best to have a professional shoot your auditions when possible. Along with a self tape service, Luis will help you reduce your accent and provide you with constructive notes to make sure your best foot is being put forward in each self test. Contact Luis directly to set up a 1x1 training or self tape session.
