I heard about ACS through a friend I ran into at an audition and she told me about their sitcom writing classes. I had been wanting to find something like it for a long time so I was thrilled to hear about them. Fast forward to now – I’ve taken the pilot writing class and then went into the Word Party! Online classes and am gonna keep taking that one for awhile. Gunnar’s pilot writing class, My Safe and Easy Writing Class is more clear, empowering, and information-loaded than I could have imagined. I’m writing 2 sitcom pilots right now and finally know what to do. And the Word Party! Online class is literally a must for any writer who ever believed there’s such a thing as ‘writer’s block’. My confidence as a writer is 100X what it was before. Anytime someone asks me about writing, their classes are the first thing I mention. – Gina T.
If you are interested in performing comedy, writing comedy, or both, this is the place. As an actor, I’ve studied comedic acting at a couple of other places. This place makes the most sense of it. All acting classes are currently online and the emphasis is on on camera acting. I took My Safe & Easy Writing class, also, and wrote a TV comedy pilot in 6 weeks. – Sarah C.
I completed the Word Party! Online class and it was a fun, and liberating experience! This class really helped to exercise some creativity during social distancing. It guided me to some of the most interesting creative writing I have produced. I highly recommend this class if you are looking to express yourself freely, without any judgement at all. Quarantined or not! – Andy R.
I absolutely Adore Gunnar! I love the Word Party! Online class so much because he takes out the stress of writing, and just focuses on the creativity and the fun. I’ve taken a lot of his classes and this is one of my personal favorites! I plan to continue the word party because It allows me to flex my creative muscle! And I appreciate the gift that Gunnar shares with us at a discounted rate to boot! if you sign up, I’ll see you there. Because hey…..I don’t want to be tardy to the party 😉 – Ben S.
I took Gunnar’s Word Party! Online class at a friend’s recommendation; and it was the best decision I made in months. I’ve got a solid history of writing classes behind me, but I had been in quite a slump and this studio’s environment and structure helped me create a change that I had been looking for. I plan on sticking around. – Jason S.
