Sterling Studio Class “Tribe” Information
“The sky is the limit, but only you can limit your sky”
– Constance Tillotson
Quantum Physics, Intention, Craft.
All classes focus on the precision of Film/TV acting:
Art of Improv
Improv for Film/TV requires a more sophisticated method than the typical “improv” approach. Currently, many auditions require the actors to be able to improvise in character while maintaining a direct correlation to the story line. It is subtle & real. It is a fine art most actors do not have in their arsenal. Because of this much demanded skill, we have had actors book jobs opposite: Anthony Anderson, Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz, Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Anderson, Matt Damon, Adam Sandler, Laurence Fishburne & Sam Rockwell…Just to name a few.
An actor who gets past initial audition, through callbacks, director’s sessions and network tests is an actor who has become a master at taking direction. If you are not ready, in every audition to do it at least 10 different ways, you are not ready to book the bigger jobs. If you are worrying about the lines, you have not prepared properly. Nor are you using your sides as a professional actor. The bar we set is the standard in which an actor must rise to if they desire to be competitive in the entertainment industry
Worthy of Success. Things happen twice: Once on the inside then on the outside. We can become stuck in our own internal fears & stories. With expert precision, we will help to unlock individual blocks so the actor is free to create, walk in any room with their focus on what they have to give to the project & are in alignment to receive all success that comes to them.
Mixed age class SUNDAYS 10:30-1:30 Hollywood
Each class is a facet of acting to experience an “on location” feel. We begin, every Sunday, with a discussion of the real life experiences of the week. As well as with a motivational talk. This connects the actors at a very deep and supportive level. The Intention is for each person to uncover their own truths so that they can become “undeniable” at whatever it is they do. Whether it be walking into an audition or working with the director and fellow actors on set. Or giving a dynamic speech at school or work. We cover acting and writing for commercials, improv, different techniques for episodic, sit-com and feature films. The actors work on sides for class of current projects being cast. They garner the understanding of how to take and apply direction. The actors receive PR and Media Training. Each actor develops the vision of a director.
Adult evening classes WEDNESDAYS 7:30 Hollywood
If you are looking to take your art to the next level and beyond this is for you. My classes are not for the faint of heart. My actors are seeking their Personal Legend. Those who have the Vision Quest to become Masters at their Craft. Each class will reveal any resistance that is stopping you as well as identify your strengths and make them stronger. They are all directed by Constance Tillotson. These classes will free you from the page so you will find a newfound freedom in your work. You will discover a level of focus that is only practiced by the Great Ones. You will feel safe in your own vulnerability so you may live every moment, with unpredictability as the character. Walk into any audition so prepared you WANT to be directed 10 different ways. Take this leap and you will no longer require the net. If when reading this you feel a connection, you may have just found your Artistic Tribe.
There is no auditing of this class. I commit to every, single actor and expect them to come to class with the same commitment to the work. Every actor works in class. You only sign up for one class at a time. I find that actors who only want to audit one class are simply not ready to take the Journey my Tribe is on: To become more Artistically and Personally Enlightened. Connecting their Art to a Higher Purpose.

“This studio, this tribe, We’re not just a typical acting class, we bring out the best in each other. For us, when one person succeeds we all succeed. We bring our game and perfect our craft, while we better ourselves as people along the way. Constance doesn’t just teach us about the industry and how to be a great actor, she teaches us how to be a great person, and to believe in each other and ourselves. She opened our eyes that we are all on different paths, some running parallel to another’s, we grow, and process at different rates, but when we’re ready to take on the competition and world of acting, we’ll be undeniable, that’s what comes from sterling studios and nothing less.”
