Our Vision

OUR VISION

Maria has designed our programs based on her experience and knowledge as a TV Director for over three decades. She voiced, "Over the years I realized that each Network has a particular production finger print and defined brand. Actors can make mistakes because their technique is not aligned with the style of the production. Every Network knows what works for them commercially". 

We specialize in new fusions of acting tendencies, which are present in current popular Network Productions. These new tendencies mix sitcoms with more serious genres. We are the only school in  Miami that trains in an innovative style and has 24+ young Actors working for the most significant Network and Production Companies in the world. Our alumni have enjoyed successful careers in TV  Networks such as Nickelodeon, Disney, Fox, Telemundo, NBC, Netflix among others.
