If not for Acting Out Studio, my experience at Talent Inc. would not have been as successful or enjoyable! They are so helpful in preparation, expectation, and ability to put on a show. I am so excited to attend Acting Out class because I am fully able to be myself as well as pursue my passion. The staff is so friendly and supportive. They help you learn and improve your weaknesses all while validating your strengths. Acting Out is like a second home to me, and I wouldn’t think of the staff as anyone but family! I am extremely thankful for Kamber and the rest of the staff for helping me win Overall Female Actor at Talent Inc. as well as pursue my love for acting!

Years ago when we enrolled Brogan in acting classes we did so to help him build his self-confidence and strengthen his communication skills.  Little did we know that Acting Out Studio would do so much more for him. The talented & caring instructors brought out a passion for the arts in Brogan that we couldn’t believe.  He started in Acting I and over the years moved up to the Master Class and Improv, which he loves. The instructors are working actors and understand the business so he’s getting valuable technical training but most importantly, they make it fun!  He’s attended classes with casting directors, professional actors, dialect coaches, voice over coaches & special effects makeup artists thanks to AOS! Brogan is also enrolled in voice lessons, which has also been an amazing experience. He has sung our National Anthem at most every amateur and pro sporting event in Charlotte including the Panthers!  Because of the training and experiences he’s been afforded by AOS, we are proud to say our son is a working actor, an entertainer, a performer and is absolutely living his dream!

Thank you to Acting Out Studio for the coaching and of course the amazing Talent Inc. Griffin has been working on The Week Of Adam Sandler’s new Netflix feature.  He was cast as Jeddy and has had the good fortune to work alongside Adam, Chris Rock and Steve Buscemi — and too many other amazing cast members to even mention!! Recently just got to work with Ralph Macchio as his on-screen son in eight episodes of Cobra Kai with talks of expanding his role in upcoming seasons.  If it weren’t for ACTING OUT and Talent Inc., Griffin may not have had this chance to live out his dream this summer. We have moved out of Charlotte and are back up in CT – right outside of NYC. I just wanted to thank you for encouraging Max and Griffin to do the Talent Inc. program and being a part of Acting Out Studio. As a parent, I am incredible grateful for his preparation by Kamber and his experience at Talent Inc.

I am writing concerning any actors who want to pursue Acting Out Studio to gain fun, insight, awesome friends, and growth within yourself and as a team, especially if you get a chance to work the amazing EB and that is not the Easter Bunny! She has coached me from the beginning from the hardest auditions to bookings Including my latest one “Insidious: The Last Key” where I play young Christian.  I so love my improv team and we just so EB. Love me Pierce. -Pierce Pope, AOS Student

Acting Out Studio helped make my daughter’s dream become a reality. Not only does she receive exceptional training from incredible talented teachers, she is provided opportunities to shoot for the stars and go for her dream. A little skeptical going in, Abby attended Talent Inc…it was the best decision we have ever made for her. She signed with 2 agents and a manger. She was on her way to living her dream. Thank you AOS and Talent Inc. for making Abby’s dreams come true. I highly recommend AOS & Talent Inc. to anyone looking for the best acting/modeling/voice training in NC and Talent Inc. for those who are ready to take it to the next level!

Ivan and I continue to be awed by the support and education we have both received from Acting Out Studio.  Despite Ivan’s passion and aptitude for acting, we both agree that he would not be in LA right now without everything Acting Out Studio has gifted him with.  The classes, workshops, coaching and “extras” like The Actees have been incredible. But even more important has been the emotional support and encouragement that everyone at AOS has generously provided.  I’ll second Ivan’s statement that you genuinely care for your students beyond any mere business relationship. You’ve supported us through our beginnings in the acting industry and we will truly NEVER forget the role that everyone at AOS has played in helping Ivan pursue his acting career. Ivan often gets compliments about his preparedness and the tools he uses at auditions. Not only have you taught and prepared Ivan well but you have been an incredible source of support for me. You have prepped us both so well for the next stages of his adventures in acting and we’ve made some life-long friends with AOS and a few of the families we have met there.  This is a crazy business but the education and support has helped us maintain our sanity and patience. Kamber, you are amazing and you have built an acting studio that reflects that. Simply expressing “thank you” does not come close to conveying our gratitude for the connections you made for Ivan and his LA meetings. Getting interest from all of the agents and managers we met with was almost overwhelming but gave us the confidence that we would be well-represented with any choice we made. The excellent respect you have earned with your contacts in LA were essential to us getting these meetings. No one else can take any credit for opening those doors to us. Ivan now has what we believe to be the best team of representation here in LA.

Kamber has been a key partner in Austin’s development.  Kamber films and coaches Austin for all auditions and works directly with Austin’s manager and LA coaches to equip Austin for each audition.  Kamber’s first-hand experience in the industry and her close working relationship with industry professionals makes her studio unique in the Charlotte market.

Acting Out Studio, thank you so much for the support you have given Caleb in his acting pursuits. Throughout his years with you, he has gained confidence, on-camera techniques, and auditioning skills. The improv program has helped him to grow as an actor and as a person.  It has enhanced his creativity, communication skills, and ability to think quickly. We also appreciate the professional audition-taping services you offer. With your help, Caleb has been able to book commercial, television and film work!
