The Screen Actors System Auditor Challenge has been won by members, John Manison and Stephanie Panisello. They had the highest amount of auditors sign up for class and are now on-going students, congrats!  They are going on the journey with us to become the best film actors in the industry. Not only did John and Stephanie win a free 4 week cycle of acting class, they will also star in an original short, shot by director and coach Ryan R. Williams. The short will be filmed at  Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.


The Ranch has been used to film  numerous movies and television shows since the early days of cinema. From 1992 to 1997, Paramount Ranch was used as the setting for the television show, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, so it’s the perfect location to shoot, seeing as how it’s going to be a “Western”.  The short, entitled Bertram and Nettie will be set in 1890 in a post apocalyptic western town.

We’re set to shoot on the 27th of this month and today in preparation, Ryan and John took a little trip to Western Costume in Hollywood.  The warehouse supplies costumes and costuming supplies to the film and TV industry. It’s one of the oldest businesses in the industry, the company outdates any studio or production company currently in operation.
