Director - Chernobyl, HBO
"Film-making is about translating psychologies into behavior. As a director, I felt a pragmatic need to comprehend the tools, techniques and emotions on the other side of the lens. Recommended by an actress-friend, I stumbled into Ballistics, petrified and unequipped. However - punch-drunk and bewildered - it opened my eyes. Not only towards the thespian methods & techniques but, also, towards myself. My fears, vanities, the banalities of my persona, but also my lust for expression, transmission, and interacting. The class itself was urgent, discombobulating and violently educational. Like Kelly phrases it: A gym for your acting techniques. Limping out of that first day, I was a rich man and there was no looking back."

MORE ABOUT OUR CLASSES
FOR FILM & TV
The goal is to make working on-camera second nature so you can stop thinking and act fast - from a deeply connected place.
We provide current Film & TV Sides. You prepare them and perform them on-camera. We send you your footage after.
Our technique is efficient, specific, and will help you learn a sophisticated skillset to bring your talent to life including eye work, cold-reading, and more.
Every actor works in every class. We believe in learning by DOING.
Ballistics can best be described as dramatic improv - or improv where everything goes.
It's a balls-to-the-wall, hardcore, fast-paced class where you learn to stop second-guessing yourself, trust your spontaneous action and flex your risk muscles.
It’s acting from your talent - your impulse - going beyond your comfort zone and expanding your emotional range.
We recommend ALL our actors take Ballistics at least once. It informs and inspires scripted On-Cam work in a way nothing else does.
