I opened The Forge for actors and filmmakers to constantly hone their craft and make our industry even stronger and more competitive; on both sides of the camera. Actors and filmmakers seem to be on two different teams, aiming for the same goal.
As an actor turned filmmaker, I remember getting frustrated in film school and acting studios where I felt I wasn't being pushed enough or being forced to take classes I didn't care about. Opening The Forge was my way of providing a safe place for actors and filmmakers to receive affordable training by creating meticulously curated classes. The Forge is for professionals, taught by qualified professionals. Period.
There are film schools and there are acting studios, but The Forge is a place where both sides of the camera can come for continued education and work together.
