You’re about to learn EVERYTHING you need to know to be a Hollywood success story.
And the beauty is, ALL of this need-to-know information is in one MEMBERSHIP,

When I first signed up for Speak L.A., I was an actor in Boston, who was planning to move to Los Angeles, but did not know much about the Los Angeles acting scene. Speak L.A. helped me with every step along the way, from what materials I should have to where I should live. Speak L.A. has also been a huge help with my transition in Los Angeles, for example, they have helped me find the right headshot photographer, pick headshots, find the right classes to take (just to name a few)! They have made the process of moving and living in Los Angeles a lot less overwhelming and I would recommend Speak L.A. to any actor looking to move to L.A. or who is new to the city!

If you’re even considering a move to L.A., I cannot recommend Speak L.A. enough. I first joined when I was living and acting in Boston, and my life got infinitely easier. All my questions about where to live, how to think about agents and managers, and how to begin navigating Los Angeles were answered through their beautifully done video courses, and I’ve been able to ease into the transition of moving across the country with knowledge and a confidence I never thought I’d have. Since becoming a Speak L.A. member, I’ve created a website, put my reel together, and even got a meeting with a manager. I couldn’t have done all that without their help. Jen and Camille seem to know everything, and between their insight and the insider knowledge of all the impressive people they interview on their podcast, I feel so taken care of, and like all the resources I could ever need are in one place.

Speak L.A. was definitely the most helpful thing I found when I was starting my career. I learned incredible tricks and tools from the site that led to my first jobs in television. Speak L.A. continues to bring me up to speed in an ever-changing marketplace.

The transition from the academic world of acting to the professional one is tricky, and Speak L.A. proved to be the best guide I could have possibly asked for! L.A. can be scary, it can be a very lonely place to start a career, especially in such a cut-throat business. At the same time that the videos, podcasts, blogs, and courses (all SO AFFORDABLE!) expose the difficulties of Los Angeles, they also navigate a tangible way to help you adjust both personally and professionally to a city that is filled with opportunity and magic! School curriculums are often a little behind since the business adjusts so fast, so I found Speak L.A. to be current and on top of the NOW, rather than stuck in the past. They help you structure a path so you can reach the dreams that seem too lofty to attain. I highly recommend this incredible site to ALL actors new to L.A.!

When a friend told me about Speak L.A., I suddenly felt like I had a partner in my career which is something I had always longed for! I am forever grateful to have found Speak L.A. The guidance I have received is invaluable.

Our course videos are deep dives into how to learn what you need to know as an actor. We give you step by step guidance on how to approach every aspect of your career. Each video is a real course with cheat sheets and instructions from knowledgeable teachers. When you complete a given course, we promise you will feel like you have reached a new level.
Course subjects include: How to make a reel, how to take the perfect headshot, how to get an agent, how to use the various actor sites in L.A. and which ones are good and which ones are the best, how to find a good acting class and which acting classes are the best, why acting is a business, how to get auditions and many more.
30 minutes, give or take.
Valid question. We make it our business to talk to the best of the best. We aren’t interviewing people who are just starting out, we are talking with people who are at the top of their game. Our podcasts are mini audio acting courses.
Everything we talk about on the podcasts is centered around pertinent questions new actors have (“How do I achieve success as an actor?”, “What do you (famous person) wish you had known when you were first starting out?”, “What makes an actor stand out to you (famous director) in an audition?” etc).
You got it! We are super excited about our thriving Facebook group which is a place for all our amazing members to build community, gain support and get questions answered. You’ll learn from your peers, and we – the Speak L.A. directors – often jump on too.
You betcha. If you are interested in private coaching, fill out the application below so that we can ascertain if coaching with us is right for you. Assuming it’s a fit, someone from the Speak L.A. office will get back to you to set up a free consultation call.
Coaching sessions are held in person if you live in L.A., by Skype if you don’t.
Prices are as follows: 60 minute session: $200 for non members/$150 for members 2 hour session: $350 for non members/$250 for members.
We begin by zoning in on what YOU SPECIFICALLY need to get your acting career THRIVING. A coaching session is designed to give you clarity and tools toward SUCCESS as a working actor. In a coaching session, we will give you action steps, insider information, goals, and expert insight.
Sure thing! We LOVE The Coffee Shop and we’re pretty sure that you will too!
The Coffee Shop is our Group Coaching/Mastermind Meeting. Its members meet once a week with the purpose of tackling actor obstacles TOGETHER. The focus of The Coffee Shop is less about LEARNING HOW TO ACT, and more about LEARNING HOW TO GET A JOB. The Coffee Shop meets in the comfort of a cozy home where we discuss and overcome actor roadblocks, eat snacks, and of course… drink lots of coffee! Prepare to be INSPIRED!
As I was starting to get ready to graduate from college, I kept getting overwhelmed about what lay ahead. I didn’t know where to begin or how to transition from school to the actual pursuit of being a professional actor in Los Angeles. I joined the Speak L.A. Membership and felt instant relief as I overcame my anxiety about the business. Having Speak L.A. has been a dream. I am so glad I started while I was in school so I was more prepared and ready when I arrived in L.A.! EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT STUDYING THEATRE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS SITE!
– Rosney Mauger
The greatest challenge of Hollywood is that there are no blueprints…until now! Having Speak L.A. as a resource has been invaluable. And if you want private career coaching (which believe me, you do!) Jen and Camille are always there for you, helping to demystify this industry!
