I am pleased to share that our Mulholland student, Louis Grzimek, applied for and has been accepted into the Stella Adler 3 year Conservatory in New York City.

And, even better, she has been granted a scholarship to do so.

3 years..all is a fine thing., very brave, and the focus of an olympic archer, thats.. Louis.

One thing leads to another..

Acting for the Camera/Advanced Exercises.
Mulholland Academy

We’ll shoot every week: devised/improvised scenarios, monologues, scenes. The goal is to work bravely and just be human, honest, and to begin to understand how to believe you are who you say you are while the camera rolls.
This class taught by Alex Murphy.

“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.” ― Meryl Streep

With Acting for the Camera Fundamentals.

Our Foundations class is an introductory acting class for those who wish to gain some sense of what it takes to act and act well. The weekly meetings are to introduce and exercise the curious in a steady, focused approach, all while gaining a sense of how to handle yourself in performance, and coming to understand, experientially, what it means to be skilled as an actor.

You’ll learn by doing.

Muholland Academy Dept. of Acting has absolutely changed my life. My experiences have taught me not just how be a better actor, but how better to be a human BEING--which is, in the end, what acting is, It has taught me that acting is not just for the "talented" but, rather, for anyone who can breathe, feel, move...LIVE. And that's simply: everybody! That experience of discovering together the authenticity of our selves has produced a community of people from all walks of life and cultures who are deeply bound together as a family. The selfless, unsung heroes of the faculty and staff never cease to be teachers, they remain our guides throughout our creative lives. MADA is truly a very unique place in the heart of the city. This is a place to discover the true art of Acting, and therefore, of LIFE itself.

I've seen some performances by students of Mulholland Academy and Department of Acting and I was very impressed with the results. They program's students and graduates really seemed like actors with years of experience under their belt and not like people that had been studying acting for only a couple of months. I thus think it's a wonderful program in terms of what it can help people achieve.

I feel fortunate for performing & studying in Mullholand Academy. An excellent place for acting & learning, as it combines many creative and inner elements. Laughing,enjoying,connecting, focusing, expanding are some i've experienced fully! The classes are structured in such a way that they really reduce the stress of being seeing by others or an audience. I would fully recommend without any hesitation!
