We love our work, and feel extremely grateful that we have had so many wonderful actors and parents come through our studio doors since opening in 2012. Below are a few kind words from some of our clients.
Angela David played vital role in me becoming the actor that I am today. Their teaching style is a breath of fresh air. They mix business with scene study and on-camera technique seamlessly. They’ve instilled life changing confidence in my acting, and keep reminding me that fun and spontaneity is essential, and “being you” is absolutely enough. I can’t recommend them enough, whether you are a beginner, or already have some training under your belt. I will forever cherish my relationship with them.
They know the craft. They know the Northwest film scene. They want to share and help actors get work and get better at their work. What else is there to say? Oh, yeah. They are good, good people.
My son has been taking classes with David and Angela for about three years. They have helped him become confident as an actor and he loves their positive approach to learning. The team is fun, knowledgeable, professional and two of the nicest people I know. David and Angela truly care about your success and will guide you in your career and help you reach your goals. When my son has an audition he usually takes a private lesson. David or Angela work with him to fully understand the character and script. He can then go into the audition prepared and confident. They also do video submissions. I always go to them for that because they do a superb job. My son has had many callbacks and bookings because he has great coaches in David and Angela.
David and Angela are not only dedicated, professional actors, but they’re just as motivated as coaches, too. I’ve taken a total of four classes with them, and I learn new things each time I leave their studio. I began taking their classes with only two theatre classes under my belt, and a year later, after training both in private sessions and group classes, I have booked a TV show and a national commercial, gotten callbacks, and overall gained so much from their guidance. I truly owe much of my success to David and Angela. Aside from learning how to understand working on a set, preparing for an audition, and working on a scene, I have gained confidence in myself and my work, and that is one of the most valuable skills I’ve gained from Mighty Tripod Acting Studio.
Dedication, Inspiration, Honesty. It’s what they do. Drawing out the best of us artistically and selflessly sharing their knowledge and experience.
MTP classes are awesome! They really push you to another level, if you are willing to put in the work. They don’t B.S. you, and David lays it down straight.
David and Angela really care about their students. They support their students even after taking their classes which is a huge help in a competitive market.
I am beyond thankful that I signed up for Mighty Tripod’s Foundations class! I am a local actress in the Seattle area and wanted to build on my skills in front of the camera, delivery of lines, getting more comfortable in front of the camera, and building my confidence in the choices that I make for my character. I feel like all of those things have improved tenfold since starting the class. I HIGHLY recommend this class to any actor who wants to not only build more confidence while performing, but to improve their overall understanding of how “to be” in character and not just “act.” Angela and David did a wonderful job at giving clear direction and feedback in order to help improve my performance skills. They are very encouraging and truly care about helping you in this industry
I’d been working in Seattle for the past four years with some success in both theater and film, but I knew that there was more to learn that I just wasn’t getting ‘on the job.’ I went in thinking I needed to brush up on my camera technique; where to look, how to stay in frame, how to play to the camera, etc. What I got was that and more: I’ve deepened my approach to acting, both for the camera and for the stage. I’ve got a new set of tools I can use to prepare more fully for auditions and roles. And, most importantly, I’ve got a new sense of confidence that’s been making a big difference in real-world casting and on-set situations. I got so much out of the first class that I went on to take the next in the series, and I plan to continue with Mighty Tripod’s ongoing classes and workshops
I recently had a one on one coaching session with David. David is truly a wonderful acting coach. I have had a chance to observe him when I was an extra in a film as well as see him recently on stage with Book-It Theater. As a newbie in the acting profession, David’s insight as an actor shows in his knowledge, patience and empathy in teaching. In the short time I had with him, I gained some great advice and tips in reading a monologue, cold reading and how to make a character more real vs. just performing. It was great getting immediate feedback after doing the monologue and working on some lines from a script. I really enjoyed the session and gained more from this than other classes I’ve taken up until now. Now, I just need to put his advice into action in becoming a better actor.
I just wanted to say I am so, so grateful for Mighty Tripod! While I know Megan learned a ton yesterday, it was also nice to see what she is learning so I can support her at home. Kids just can’t navigate this business without their parents but it isn’t always easy to find the necessary resources; the information you gave during the class yesterday has given us a foundation to build upon. You did a wonderful job arranging the curriculum of the class, keeping to the schedule, (not always easy to do with a room full of kids!) and staying on task, filling the day with very useful content. Thank you for providing a safe and fun environment for the kids to do some real learning
