Q: Are Intensives a prerequisite for ongoing acting classes at Mornell Studios?
A: Yes. All actors must complete an Intensive in order to be eligible for placement in ongoing classes at Mornell Studios.
Q: How often are Intensives held?
A: We hold at least one Intensive a month. You can find the schedule here.
Q: How can I receive advanced notice of open registration for the next Intensive? Is there a waitlist/email list?
A: There is a waitlist for Intensives. Everyone on the waitlist is emailed advance notice of open registration for new Intensive sessions.
Q: Where am I on the Intensives waitlist? Why can’t I just pay a deposit for a guaranteed spot in the next Intensive?
A: All actors on the waitlist are placed on an email list for advanced notice when registration opens for the next Intensive. Registration is first-come, first-served and Intensives typically fill up within one hour of the notification email being sent out to the current waitlist. If there are open seats 24 hours after that email is sent, we then advertise publicly on our Mornell Studios Instagram.
Q: How can I be added to the waitlist?
A: Please complete intensive registration here to be added to the list.
Q: Is there a payment plan? Can I pay with Venmo or Cashapp?
A: We accept payment via Paypal, and you can select to either pay in full or split your tuition fees into 2 payments. Your second payment is due before the start of class on Day 1 at 12pm EST.
Q: Do I have to take the Intensive before I can book a session to coach with Sara?
A: No, actors are not required to take the Intensive before coaching with Sara. Please head over to our coaching page to book a session.
Q: Do you have classes for beginning actors?
A: We offer business classes for actors who are looking to level up their acting materials before submitting them to agents and managers for representation. We offer a transition class for stunt actors. Our weekly ongoing classes are not open to beginning actors, and Intensives are only open to working represented actors.
Q: What ongoing classes are offered at Mornell Studios?
