EVOLV ATLANTA ACTING We create an environment where actors become conscious and comfortable with the changes necessary to achieving freedom from anything that inhibits their brilliance. We are an gym for the actor where failing forward is our philosophy. We work acting technique, excercises and on scenes from television and film. On camera class work is an integral part of our training program. We expose the student to several different methods as well as teaching the Chubbuck technique. The Chubbuck technique is the cutting-edge technique that has launched some of the most successful careers in Hollywood. (Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Terrance Howard, Eriq La Salle, Charlize Theron, James Franco, Taraji P. Henson) The classes are small and the work we do is designed around each students needs. We accept all levels of students.
