Meet Alumni

UNDER CONSTRUCTION—CHECK BACK SOON AS WE FIND AND ADD MORE ALUMNI!
Meet Studio Alumni. Matchmaking is the secret to great casting. When I was casting for years, my greatest actor leads came from personal recs and lots of searching. To this day, many Casting Directors and Creatives love to reach out to acting studios and working colleagues for ideas. May your search expand and lead you to the talent you seek. This database will be constantly expanding as we track down my thousands of alumni. Connect away! —Heidi

Ben Strate

Sophomore year of High School, a friend of mind dared me to audition for the school play. Not only did I land one of the lead roles, but I also gained a lifelong passion (so far, *fingers crossed) and a delusional sense of how easy it is to land a part.
But, I've been a storyteller all my life. Whether that through writing (In an attempt to convince my classmates that I was a superhero, I made comic book called Spider-Ben), or through visual media (my first attempt at a short film had a large ensemble of all my action figures and was done in one take... I had yet to learn how to 'cut').
But at the end of the day, one is only as valuable as the people one surrounds themselves with, and I am certainly no exception. When it comes to any project, regardless of importance of role, I am always seeking to make everyone around me better. There is no greater pleasure then when someone comes up to me and says, "Hey. I'd like to work with you again."
