Act on camera every class and strengthen your acting skills

Veleka G.

Happy New Year! Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas? If not, give yourself the gift of acting training with the top coach in Louisiana and make 2012 the year you realize your dreams.

There has never been a better time to get your training because Louisiana is rated as number one in the nation in offering the most attractive combination of tax incentives, crew base, talent pool, infrastructure, accessibility, significant production revenue, and overall popularity among filmmakers.


In the semester starting the week of January 9th, you can cover the basics in one semester AND see your progress each week when you elect to watch your work in class on camera.

In this semester:

★ Free your emotions and your creative spirit using improvisation
★ Rehearse four great ways to audition without anxiety
★ Get the scoop on script analysis and breaking down your character
★ Practice how to repeat your actions to maintain continuity for film work
★ Form lasting friendships and network with The Actors Alliance community

And in your last class, you can opt to showcase for a local industry leader!


I want to inspire and empower my students, to remind them that heroes are born every day, that ordinary people can change the world. Maybe you've seen movies that have changed your life. Why not become the actor on the screen making a difference?

It doesn't matter if you are just starting out or are very experienced. There is always something new for you to learn and things that you can do to set yourself apart as an actor. Learning new skills in the exciting, supportive environment of the Alliance will give you powerful tools to help advance your acting career.


Television star and Emmy judge Veleka Gray has shared the stage or screen with scores of luminaries, including Sigourney Weaver, Ted Danson, Jobeth Williams, Elliot Gould, Rue McClanahan, Armand Assante, and Michael Cole, among many others.

Since returning to New Orleans in 2000, Veleka has been cast in six films, including the features "Flag of My Father" and "Flood Streets" and the short "Fingers," which is now in film festivals. She played Judge White in "Blood in The Grass" last April, and her role in "Leatherface 3D" wrapped at the end of September.

As a coach, Veleka has trained actors for twenty-five years in New York, San Francisco, at the College of DuPage in Chicago, and, since 2000, all over Louisiana. In addition to the classes she teaches weekly in Metairie, Baton Rouge, and Covington, she brings her coaching to Lafayette, Shreveport, Monroe, Alexandria, and soon to Jackson, Mississippi.

She is currently in production with "For Better, For Worse," a film starring students of The Actors Alliance to help them acquire excellent scenes for their demo reels.
