ONE YEAR HANDS ON ACTING PROGRAM
Taylor Talent School of Development is an Acting College Alternative. A place where we prepare actors for a life of acting but at a fraction of the cost of attending a major university or other performance arts college. How? We are not a traditional college worried about accreditation which means we don't have to follow the rules and mandates when it comes to a certain amount of hours a student needs to accomplish per semester. So we don't have to charge extra for the time and manpower that makes up. Because of this you as an actor will...
Spend more time acting & auditioning and less time in class.
Instead of spending thousands on tuition, invest that money back into acting, your career, your own projects.
Start submitting for Acting Roles being cast within your first couple month.
Take only classes you need to successfully become a working actor and have us create a plan designed for you that you can take at your own pace Instead of taking predetermined classes you may or may not be interested in.
ONE YEAR ACTING PROGRAM OVERVIEW
What makes our Our One-Year Acting Program so great is that it starts at the beginning of the month ten months out of the year. This means that each month welcomes a new student body. No need to wait til next year or wait for the start of a new semester. The One-Year Program is comprised of two sixteen-week semesters. Each of the sixteen-week semesters requires intensive time demands and a complete commitment on the part of the student.

WHAT MAKES OUR ACTING PROGRAMS UNIQUE?
FOCUSED ON GETTING YOU WORKING
At Taylor Talent Reels our main focus is preparing you for... THE AUDITION! We do that by focusing first on exactly what it is you need to know and have to begin auditioning successfully. We understand how hard it can be to get in the room and how intimidating it is once you have. We train you for both, by the end of your time here you will be comfortable preparing for and attending any audition.
REAL-WORLD - HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE
For the creative-minded individual, the best way of learning is hands-on. At Taylor Talent Reels most of your training will be just that. From actually auditioning, to on-camera work. We expose you to actual situations you will face in your career.
TAILORED TO YOU
After you complete your core classes which take place within the first semester, you will have a career consultation with one of our Consultants who will help you create a curriculum going forward designed specifically for the journey you're looking to take as an Actor. Your classes will be specifically focused on subjects that reinforce your choices. e.g. Stunt Training, Voice Over, Etc.
We bring production value to the shoots that we do with our students, whether it's helping them with original work they've created, to scene development. The material created, our students will be able to use to add to their reels.
INDUSTRY WORKING STAFF
Our Teachers, Consultants and other staff members work in the entertainment industry as Actors, Producers, Directors, Writers, etc. so you are learning from people who not only have been where you are but can help you get to where you want to be.
Taylor Talent Reels in addition to being an institution for learning, is also a full fledged production company, creating original productions in-house as well as producing and assisting productions with the creation of other projects. Our students have many opportunities to Act in some of these production. They will be able to use the experience in their resume and footage for their reels.
CERTIFICATE NOT DIPLOMA
We believe that a piece of paper doesn't define your professionalism, qualification or expertise when it comes to the art of acting. Your ability to act comes from your creativity and the work ethic you provide. Therefore we are more focused on helping you develop as an actor and helping you carve your own path. We believe in only spending time developing what it is you'd like to work on, once you've finished your core classes. We also believe that less time paying for our services means more money for you to invest in your career and for this reason, we decided not to become accredited and make you take a certain amount of hours in order to graduate with a piece of paper that won't really help you in the real world but do agree that it is important to document success and milestones so we offer a Certificate of completion and graduation type ceremony on your one year completion.
SEMESTER ONE OVERVIEW
We focus on the building blocks of becoming a working Actor, this means first and foremost understanding exactly what it takes to book the jobs. This is accomplished by teaching actors to understand the importance of auditioning, getting them comfortable with being in the room or putting themselves on tape. Students will find this comfort by learning hands on the process of auditioning as well as the techniques needed to pull off successful auditions. This means learning how to prepare your tool kit (Headshot, Demo Reel, Resume), how to successfully understand and breakdown a scene, how to understand their character as well as the characters in the scene. How to train their minds, body and voice. Last, how to make the make believe, believable.
