IAA Student and current LA Resident Katy O'Brian

"I was also thrilled to find that the information provided in the class was up to date. I have several friends who are working actors in Los Angeles and Chicago and they do not seem all together more informed about the business from their respective classes. I even shadowed a class in Los Angeles that was highlighted on Backstage.com and found that the information provided and the classwork was no different than that provided in Jim's classes.

You won't find a better deal for the quality. The environment is increadibly supportive but not superficial. Your work will be critiqued. It's the only way to improve...and you will improve."
