Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher has the experience and the know how to teach you your own strengths. He gives you an edge in this industry by refining what you do best. This isn’t an “acting methodology.” It’s a training ground for brilliance.Byrne Offutt
Whether it’s an audition or a cold reading, I have confidence. I feel prepared. Gunnar has given me several tools to quickly break down a script. It is such a relief to be prepared and look intelligent in the audition room. I can stop winging it now. I can’t thank him enough.Lindy Loundagin
Last year, after over a decade slowly building my acting career, I booked my first SAG-AFTRA co-star role. I directly attribute my current success as a working actor to the lessons I learned from Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher. Though his class focuses on comedy, Gunnar knows it’s not enough to be funny. His class builds comic actors by focusing first on acting fundamentals, in a manner that is not only comprehensive and easy to understand, but easy to implement. Most importantly, I’ve learned to trust the preparation I do before an audition, so that I can relax into my best self during the audition.Clint Tauscher
If you’re not studying with Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher over at ACS, I honestly think you’re not entirely living up to your potential. Gunnar’s ability to individually coach and teach his students, while in a group setting, is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. People leave his class feeling encouraged and nurtured and CHALLENGED, and very much like they’re on the road to being the best performer they can be. I said it earlier, and I’ll say it again: you should be studying with Gunnar Todd. Highly recommended. Matthew Swanson
