Run don’t walk to sign up at ACS! You get a taste of all the following in Gunnar’s classes: cold reading, audition technique, scene study, TV single camera, TV multi-camera, improv, film comedy, basic scene study, character analysis, etc. We also celebrate good news and share helpful info on the biz each week before class starts. It’s really a supportive environment, and I’ve made my best friends in LA through these classes. What a great feeling to be part of a group where you are learning, growing and being with people you respect and love to be around. Oh, and most importantly, laughing your ass off!Robin Phelps
I have never met anyone who has a more perfect understanding of comedy than Gunnar. My confidence in my acting has improved drastically and I landed commercial and theatrical representation as a result of one of the Studio’s showcases! I’ve also found that students in this Studio are very motivated. I’ve never been around so many people who are constantly producing their own content.Amanda Nix
There hasn’t been a single audition I’ve gone into as a professional in which I haven’t employed the lessons I’ve received from Gunnar. I can’t recommend him enough.Henry Watkins
I’m an actor from Sydney, Australia and I’ve worked with Gunnar in L.A. Working with Gunnar is one of the things I’m most looking forward to when I go back to L.A.Daniel Nemes
Gunnar Todd’s comedy class is the only acting class that has given me the technique and the confidence to pursue an acting career after years of absence from the industry. Gunnar understands both comedy and the “business” of show business.Darlene Levin-Hodgetts
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
I have grown so much as an Actor under Gunnar’s tutelage. He has the keen ability to see your strengths and weaknesses, and he helps and guides you in a very supportive way. Highly recommend studying at Actors Comedy Studio!Alex Alexander
Gunnar is an awesome coach. On top of being a proper professional with vast experience, he is quite inspiring and supportive. One of the most favourite learning experiences in acting I have ever had, and I have studied with wonderful teachers. Gunnar has a unique ability to see right through you and thus is able to fine-tune you in a very personalized way. If you haven’t yet – do yourself a favour and go see for yourself.Konstantin Lavysh
I was fortunate to find Gunnar’s class two years ago after I’d graduated from an acting conservatory and had a good foundation, but needed to hone my comedic skills, type, and knowledge of the business. Not only did I find a supportive, yet challenging teacher, but I also found a group of highly motivated actors that I have since collaborated with. Gunnar’s classes are always a nurturing environment where you feel free to take chances. I’m excited about Actors Comedy Studio because it’s truly a community and is at the forefront of all of the new media changes in the industry. Instead of trying to catch up to the changes, we’re all carving our own paths.Abby Walla
Gunnar Todd Rohrbacher’s expert knowledge of comedy along with his passion for sharing his knowledge with actors is what makes him an exceptional teacher. The fact that he is an extraordinarily talented actor and consummate professional is icing on the cake and makes the experience of learning and working with him a benefit to actors in their off camera professional life as well. He is a rare teacher!Walker Brandt
Every actor knows they need a winning head shot. Unfortunately, not every actor knows what that means or how to get one. In fact, actors are often lost as to exactly how to prepare for a head shot session, what to offer their photographer during the session or even what to do besides smile for the camera.
There’s much more to it than that. Head shots are an expensive and often confusing aspect of an actor’s career. Knowing how to produce an eye catching head shot that’s also an accurate representation of you can literally mean the difference between having a career or not.
That’s why Gunnar created Smart Headshots: a one-hour consultation that gives actors all the tools and training they need for an effective head shot session.
Aside from head shot basic training, you’ll leave with at least three different breakdowns that you and Gunnar will create together. They will be reflective of roles in which you’re likely to be cast. Some of the benefits of a Smart Head Shots Session:
Gunnar has prepped hundreds of actors for head shot sessions and is one of only a few instructors in Los Angeles who offers comprehensive, one on one guidance in preparing for one of the most important and expensive aspects of their career.
Ultimately, Smart Head Shots puts actors more in touch with who they are in the marketplace. Knowing this in advance of having your pictures taken will save you time, money and spare you endless frustration.
One hour private consultation: $150
Students enrolled in any ACS class: $95
