Studio 24 is bringing to you a Horror & Thriller Workshop with Set Coach Mary McCusker and Director Peter Lauer.
Fun Fact: Actors first big opportunities will be in the horror/thriller genres.
This is because they don’t rely heavily on name actors, as they do in all other genres. They just need to sell the scare and if a newer actor can give them
the performance they’re looking for, they’ll likely land the role.
Playing the range of emotions necessary for your character in these genres can be a challenge, but you must be able to hit them fully without anticipating them.
The character will be in a life and death scenario that requires the actor
to revert to their animal instincts to fight to stay alive, their senses on overload
with a heightened awareness.
Your breathing changes, your heart pounds faster. Everything is about survival.
Mary McCusker - Mary just got back from Utah working on a new horror film as the set coach. She was working with the lead actors getting them ready for some intense scenes.
Peter Lauer - Peter Lauer recently directed the NetFlix series 'Uncoupled' with Neil Patrick Harris and 'Emily in Paris' starring Lily Collins.

"I will always recommend Studio 24, especially to new actors. Their staff is polite, professional and accommodating. In no way shape or form do I feel like I am just another number or a pay check to them. They are more than willing to help with any questions I have and I truly feel like they care about my dreams and ambitions. Cody takes his time in class and makes sure that everyone has honest insight on their performance. He is not afraid to let you know what you did right or wrong and this in turn allows actors to continue to grow to their full potential. I have had several compliments on how my acting has improved since I have started taking Studio 24's classes. And if that isn't enough, the products that Studio 24 has produced for me were absolutely amazing. The quality of my headshots and demo reel was clear and I feel more than confident submitting them to casting sites."
"I've been a student at Studio 24 since 2011 and I consider myself so lucky. They are so professional and they just want to see us as actors thrive and succeed. I can always ask them anything about this business because it's honest and genuine!"
