The Actors Workshop is a space for actors. Pure and simple. No frills. Just actors working hard to become better at their craft.
Check out the website. If it’s a fit for you, join us for the journey.
Many of you have dreams associated with the film industry. I’m here to help. And to push you. It’s a simple concept.
Film is not life. It’s life on steroids. Life condensed. It’s the illusion of life. That’s the art form.
In film, unlike life, we seek conflict and passion. Life tends to shy away from both. Too complicated. Too messy. Too tough, really. In film, we go after the tough. Messy is good. And conflict, fraught with emotion, is what drives us.
Find the conflict, bring the passion. If you do we’ll sit back and love it.
JANUARY WORKSHOP IS FULL
MONDAY AND THURSDAY EVENINGS - 6:00 TO 10:00
Casting Director Jeff Johnson will be my guest.
Comments on the Workshop from actors and agents...
Michael, we do push our actors to continue their training... and be ready for any and all opportunities that might come their way. Thank you for being hard on them... we need to take many of them to the next level. Being exposed to a working professional of your stature is a treat.

What can I say about the Michael Flynn acting workshop other than it has been a Brilliant Experience for me. I’ve been in other workshops in LA over the years that gave me bits and pieces of what I needed to hone my craft, but working with Michael has been a special treat. Michael covers every aspect of acting. And for me it’s been a challenge to keep up at times. He makes you stretch your instrument to fulfill a character. His years of experience as a working actor are so valuable to us in the workshop. We work in front of the camera all the time, which is a great asset because you get to see your work. I’m looking forward to another go-round this year of working out at the Workshop. Thanks for the experience! ~ F. Spencer
I can’t say enough good things about The Actors Workshop! The training I received from Michael is invaluable and was very instrumental in launching my acting career. Michael doesn’t mess around – he helps actors push past our comfort zones and dig deep to reach our full potential. His direction and feedback prepared me for auditioning with confidence, trusting my instincts as an actor and helped me navigate the business. Michael is insightful, creative and intuitive. I have taken his workshop many times because I always learn something new and improve my skills! ~ J. Wilhite
The Actor's Workshop is the best place to work on acting. Hands down. The direction, the atmosphere, the great company of fellow actors. Michael has true respect for actors. Trust in Michael's direction and you will discover talent in you heart you never thought you had. ~ J. Brown
The actors workshop feels like a second home. The energy and support that permeate the room is unimaginable. Every second and every minute that I spend at the actors workshop is absolutely amazing! ~ R. Lundskog
Attending the Actors Workshop was an absolutely life-changing experience for me. I immediately signed up for two more months. Not only did I get amazing feedback and guidance, Michael's monthly guests included the agent who had previously declined to represent me, and by the end of my sessions she invited me to audition again and accepted me for representation! I gained so much confidence from practicing the skills taught and putting in the work, I booked several jobs almost immediately. Not only do I use what I learned in the Actors Workshop every time I audition and work on set, I can't wait to get back in there to learn some more. Forever Grateful. ~ I. Bee.
The Actor's Workshop was a terrific and satisfying experience. I was encouraged to push myself beyond my boundaries and expand them. Michael is a terrific teacher and resource for opening new doors into each actor's craft. Thanks, Michael!

Michael is very invested in helping actors find the passion in their work and makeinteresting choices that set you apart in the field. He has a good eye for seeing what is working and what isn’t and does a great job of recreating what auditions and film sets feel like. I also love that Michael will post your work on his website usually within a day so you can review your work and his feedback. I recommend the Workshop. You will walk away with new insights and increased confidence for which I have found myself very grateful. ~ A. Shields
I love the workshop and will be back in February! I truly love and enjoy the classes and working with you and other aspiring actors. I look forward to seeing you next month!
~ D. Guthrie
I've done several workshops with Michael and each time I discover a new layer in this art. Michael's dedication is unparalleled and information is never withheld, as I've found in other workshops. He has a sincere desire to see each actor succeed and spends as much time as needed to achieve each individual's best! ~ P. Poland
You have us push ourselves and sharpen our craft. I know I wouldn't be memorizing scripts if it wasn't for you. I love your approach to life. You're genuine. Thanks for being there. Anyone would benefit from the workshops. ~ W. Wright
Without a doubt the most helpful class I have taken (and that includes my schooling in LA). Love me some Michael Flynn!
~ K. Stroh
This workshop has been such an incredible experience for me, I feel like I've learned so much in just 3 weeks. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best in the business and for the new friends I've made who constantly inspire me to be a better actor. ~ J. Twiss
Thank you for your attention and care for the actors. In you, I feel like I have a professional and an artist I can trust.

Thank you so much for your focus and direction. This is the 3rd time I've taken the Workshop and I will be back. So many "Ah-hah" moments. So much more to learn from you. You direct with passion and determination. ~ S. Turner
Loving this workshop. Absolutely loving it. I leave with a thrill every night... proud of myself for doing it, excited to try and push more, intrigued by the specifics. ~ J. Larsen
