Robert Mello Studio


“Sanford Meisner’s approach has always been for me the simplest, most direct, least pretentious and most effective of all the acting techniques.” – Sydney Pollock, Actor/Director, Eleven Time Oscar Winner.

Upcoming at The Robert Mello Studio!


This Saturday ONLY!


“To L.A. Or Not To L.A.” 


…THAT is the question…


As a teacher, I am often asked by actors, “Should I move to L.A.?” In this three hour seminar, we will offer the nuts and bolts information you need to make that decision, including:


 -Timing: When is an actor ready for L.A.?
-The difference between L.A. and Atlanta auditions.

-How to be prepared to hit the ground running.
-How much money do you need?
-Who are the teachers in L.A. that agents like to see on your resume?
-What kind of training do you need to succeed in L.A.?
-How do I get an agent  in L.A.?
..and much more.
The seminar will be lead by:

L.A. actress Kelly Schumann, currently recurring on TVLand’s HOT IN CLEVELAND and credits kelly on AMERICAN HORROR STORY, THE MENTALIST, SOUL MAN and OUTSOURCED. Kelly transitioned to L.A. five years ago and truly knows the ins and outs for any actor considering the move!


Also, filmmaker Jeremy O’Keefe and acting instructor and former L.A. TV executive, Robert Mello.
