Next up at the Workshop:
To Young Actors and their Parents...
Charla Cochran is an amazing addition to the Actors Workshop. I can't say enough about her experience in film and theater and her career as an acting coach and mentor for young actors.
Charla comes to us directly from an award winning acting studio in Los Angeles - Keep it Real Acting, whose owner/teacher Judy Kain had this to say about Charla:
"Charla is a wonderful teacher.. Her patience and care with young actors is amazing. And she is a talented actress and is able to help these actors grasp the concepts and have fun at the same time. I couldn't do these classes with out Charla." ~ Judy Kain
In Charla's on-camera workshop, young actors will learn the basics of auditioning, including; relaxed confident slates, interview skills to bring out their personality, and the rules of the games to help them feel comfortable on camera. They will also discover how to make smart choices with commercial copy and how to use buttons that book jobs.
They will gain confidence as they learn how to handle cold-readings for on-camera theatrical auditions, including strong character choices and how to integrate improv skills! Don't miss this opportunity for your child to learn these bookable skills for work in front of the camera from Charla Cochran, actress and acting coach.
Parents, you are invited to a Q & A session during the last session to learn how to best support your child in their acting endeavors in a well-balanced manner.
I am very pleased that Charla has chosen the Actors Workshop as a place where she would like to work with young actors. Young actors are in excellent hands with Charla.

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.

You are truly gifted at what you are doing with actors. It is such a pleasure working with you. You really have this ability to draw out of the actor their best work. It is a both a gift and something you have worked very hard to obtain and sharpen. Thanks for the opportunity to be in your workshop once again.

Michael taught me everything I know! OK that's a lie! But definitely out of all the acting teachers I've had he's one of the ones made a mark. He gave me some of my favorite tools that I pull out an use at every audition! He teaches you how to OWN the audition! GO MICHAEL!!!
~ Christina Marie Thurmond
Michael, I can't tell you how much I value your input. Each session I realize more your enormous talent and feel so fortunate to be one of your students. I've worked on sets with you a few times, but had no idea of your great talent. I'd take your workshop year-round if I could. I loved every minute of it.
~ Gwen Maw
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.
~ Stacey Turner
Michael is actually a working actor with terrific insight into acting techniques as well as character development. He also has many practical tips on things like auditioning and "on the set" etiquette. Best of all he's a great teacher and able to communicate his ideas clearly.
~ Teri Cowan
I took your acting class to get over my fear of public speaking. I finally found my passion in life. Being in front of the camera as an actor has changed my life, my expectations. It has rocked my world in a way I could never have imagined. I seriouisly owe it all to you. You changed my life for the better adn I cannot thank you enough. You have a special place in my heart.
~ Justin Doxford
We've had many actors take Michael Flynn's Workshop. After some hard work on their part and phenomenal guidance on Michael's part the progress is evident! Michael knows how to tap into an actor's raw talent and polish them into a better version of themselves. Our actors have gotten more callbacks and bookings since Michael Flynn entered their lives. Thank you, Michael!
~ Liz Knight, Knightstar Talent Mgmt.
Michael knows actors, how to work with them and how to get the best out of them. Certainly, he is an accomplished actor himself and becoming a well-known director of significance. However what is most important for the actor developing his or her craft is Michael's insights, understanding and ability to work with you to draw out the best work in you in your journey to become an outstanding actor in your own right, proficient in your acting craft. That is what is most valuable. That's why you do this workshop.
~ Maikel Bailey
Just wanted to say thank you for your two classes I took earlier this year. It's paid off. I booked a recurring role on "Granite Flats" and booked another role on a docudrama called "Gold Fever." I really value what you offer with your years of experience.
~ Trevor Snarr
I really enjoyed working with Michael and I love the energy, enthusiasm and passion that he brings. I highly recommend The Actors Workshop to any actor that is serious about perfecting their craft. Michael is a great actor, director and has great insight that will help you improve your skills.
~ Mark Webb
Loving this class. 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.
~ Joanna Larsen
Michael Flynn is undoubtedly a master at his craft! He is also a great teacher! I highly recommend "The Actors Workshop" to anyone wanting and willing to experience growth and insight.
~ Leslie Stott
Thank you, Michael! You have taught me so many valuable skills. My auditions are already better. I'm excited to come back to the Workshop.
~ Angie Engemann
Michael, thank you for a wonderful workshop! It was surprisingly tough, but I learned a lot. Sad that it is already over, but I'm planning on attending the next one.
~ Brian Moss
I am really enjoying this class! Learning so much. I wish I could just soak it all up like a sponge and remember everything you talk about. You have such a gift of being able to paint the picture and pull stuff out of people they didin't realize was there. Thank you.
