What's Included

This class is an “actor’s gymnasium,” where you will be asked to follow direction, learn what directors look for on set, and get invaluable feedback on your work. Donna Morong, noted Casting Director and Acting Teacher, will provide feedback alongside a guest director as you are filmed performing scenes from film and TV. Students will learn how to work on-set under pressure in a simulated professional environment. Previous directors include: Randall Zisk (Scandal, The Mentalist, Monk), Damon Santostefano (Three To Tango), Will Geiger (Elvis and Anabelle), Joy Gohring (Doghouse), Whitney Ransick (The Huntress), Matthew A. Collins (Heart Land), Brett Simon (Assassination of a High School President), Gary Fleder (Homefront), and Anna Mastro (Walter). “In my classes I work with the actor to free themselves from over- thinking, to become in touch with their deeper instincts in order to be in the moment and expand the choices that are available to them. I nurture their sense of emotional truth as it applies to film, theater and television roles in order to encourage students to expand their range and grow as artists.” – Donna Morong 9 week class

About This Organizer

Welcome to the Aquila Morong Studio.

Deborah Aquila and Donna Morong have opened a studio in the heart of Hollywood for the serious professional actor to hone their craft for film and TV using techniques developed by Stella Adler and Sanford Meisner.

"We are actors who have been trained by legendary teachers-Stella Adler and Bill Esper. We utilized our invaluable training to begin our careers as teachers, then as casting directors, and now with our own studio as a permanent home, we have returned to teaching again to pass along our tools and knowledge to you. As casting directors, we have literally seen hundreds of thousands of actors' work over the course of our careers that have spanned three decades. Over that time, we have pinpointed the mistakes and triumphs that make a successful actor. We incorporate ALL of our experience in the training we offer to make you achieve EXCELLENCE! We work to shape our actors into exemplary artists, while giving them the tools they can use in real world situations, whether it be an audition room or on-set. Studying with Aquila Morong Studio is not just an eye-opening and enlightening experience, but an experience that provides you with tools you can use to realize your dreams. It's not about tricks- It's about CRAFT."


-Deborah Aquila & Donna Morong
