If you need any more inspiration to fully pursue your acting training while watching the oscars, just think of this… Several short months ago Jes Selane started acting for the first time in Screen Actors System. I just saw his Sprint commercial during the Oscar broadcast. I SALUTE those of you who have filled Screen Actors System’s classes to the brim the last few cycles.

I am proud of our members’ recent series regular bookings, dozens of national commercials shot, the television guest stars booked and countless indie feature film leads in the can. I am most proud that the actors who started their acting training with me seem to be booking the most. They follow the system I teach and they are getting incredible results.

I PITTY those of you who have taken time off. All of you.

I PITTY those of you who have not joined yet.

I PITTY with love. I have no other way to say it. What were you thinking? You have likely wasted this time. Fix it. Get your

butt in Screen Actor System. I am showing you the way to make your dreams come true. It is that simple. This work is important.

It takes a couple years for those of you who have bad habits from your past training coming into this process–but you will become a great actor in my class. For those that are new to acting, you will succeed much faster. That just means people with previous training need to work even harder. But the sad fact is they usually don’t.

Contact me if you would like to get on the wait list for a full class and or to attend one of the classes that we still have seats in.

I believe in your ability to do this, because you are a human being. All that you need beyond that is guidance, technique and marketing tools…oh, and the total dedication it takes to SHOW UP.

PASS this message along to any actor you believe in. Believe in yourself.

In Screen Actors System, you get the best of all that you require. So where will you train this year?

HERE ARE SOME LINKS SO FOLKS CAN CHECK OUT A GLIMPS OF WHAT WE DO WITH REELS.

This first clip is from a student who has been in Screen Actors System Las Vegas all year and is now in LA. This is her demo reel consisting of clips shot in class. She put it together in her own style and I am proud to see so many others putting their reels together now.

(A monologue we shot for reel with everyone in the Monday class, Tony had a lot of bad habits from Drama School to break to be able to do this work).

It will inspire you to strive for more as actors. It’s been an amazing ride so far for the Screen Actors System members who take The System as far as Tony Petaros has HERE. Great work!

When Tony started class he was not ready to do this level of work on camera. He was theatrical and fresh out of drama

school and, like many of you, stuck with some bad habits. I am inspired to see the students, like Tony, who diligently apply the techniques taught in this class, who get off their act, and come out looking like pros after many cycles of struggle. If it was easy, everyone would do it. And it takes upkeep.

Consistency and staying dedicated to the training are the keys to building & keeping these skills. You will all get to this level in class if you don’t give up. And now Tony can look forward to going even beyond this level because he WANTS it.

We are establishing this level of work as a baseline for ALL Screen Actors System members. So when we climb to new heights from that strong base, we truly are reaching the stars. You will all get to this level if you follow The System. Apply yourself to it. Dedicate.

I don’t believe in talent. I believe in hard work and dedication and I believe in the System. Some people work hard and some don’t, and without that, talent won’t get you anywhere. Get to work!!!

Getting excited to shoot even more substantial work with you all! A 100 minute running time has a way of leaving an even bigger mark.

As ever,

RYAN R. WILLIAMS

PS. To all of you who shot your reels that night, there were MANY great speeches I could have chosen. I will be passing out the footage in class this week to all of you, VEGAS and EVERY CLASS IN LA, you have lots of footage coming out. Be in class to pick it up!

Let’s have a great scene study this week guys!!! Treat it seriously and treat your scene partners well. That is the path. That is how you get to do this. And the way you keep doing this level of work. It’s not as hard as it looks. It’s actually fun. But you have to be ALL ABOUT IT! Push hard. Don’t be a flake. Basic.

Be in class, don’t be a flake, work on scenes every week, get good, enjoy!

PS PS Flaunt this clip in the face of any auditor you want to bring to class. If I had seen this when I was studying acting, I would have enrolled in that school immediately. If they have questions my email is: audit@screenactorssystem.com.

And for those few of you who haven’t been in class lately, what are you, crazy! Get back to work and get back in the System before we are full to capacity (most classes are full or close to it now).
