INTRODUCING

OUR STORY

Nov 2007

THE IDEA
After relocating back to Northern CA from working in Los Angeles for over 10 years, Cody looked around to see what was available for professional actors in Northern CA. His searched turned up empty and he set out to create an acting studio that could meet the needs of local talent who wanted to pursue acting professionally. By July, 2008 the studio doors were open.

Jan 2014

THE NEXT CHAPTER
After 6 years at the midtown Sacramento location, it was time for a change. They designed a custom acting studio that would better serve their growing tv/film acting community. The studio was designed with the actor in mind, and nothing was left out. The 2,300 sq/ft studio features two edit bays, voiceover recording booth, creative room, green room, and a sound stage where a multi-camera set is built out. Cody describes it as the "Disneyland" for actors.

Feb 2018

THE EXPANSION
Studio 24 had successfully been helping talent in Northern CA for a decade, many of which moved to Los Angeles to continue their pursuit. It was a natural next step for Studio 24 to open for business in Los Angeles to continue to support their growing list of aspiring and professional actors.

AUG 2020

THE REBRAND
Studio 24 has been open for 12 years and has helped thousands of actors pursue acting professionally. Over time the studio grew into one of the largest tv/film acting studios in the state of California. The industry is forever changing and this, in turn, means an ever changing Studio 24. In 2020 Studio 24 got a new look and with it came a brand new website that would allow them serve their talent better in a digital world.
