By emphasizing practical on-camera techniques and encouraging actors to make bold and specific choices, this three-week on-camera workshop with Luis Robledo – an exclusive offering for students of Seydways Acting Studios – creates an environment for actors to excel creatively on set, while still honoring the technical needs of the medium. Over the course of three weeks, actors will be able to view their scenes, identify and break through habits, hone their craft, and create new room for growth.

Luis Robledo’s experience in front and behind the camera spans across two decades and several state lines. As an actor, he learned the foundation of his craft over several years in the theater in Boston with the critically-acclaimed company, The Harrison Project. Eventually setting his sights on television and film, Luis made his move to LA in 1997.
His television guest star credits include: Six Feet Under, The X Files, The Shield, CSI:Miami, as well as a recurring role in the Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated PBS series, American Family: Journey of Dreams. His film credits include Havoc (directed by Oscar-nominee Barbara Kopple, and starring Anne Hathaway and Freddy Rodriguez), cult hit God’s Army, Zak Forsman’s highly anticipated Down And Dangerous, and award-winning spy thriller A Lonely Place For Dying (alongside Hollywood heavyweights James Cromwell and Michael Wincott).
After several years of continuing work as an actor, Luis‘ restless nature led him to explore other facets of filmmaking: writing, directing and editing. His first short, El Taxista has been an official selection of nineteen festivals world-wide and has received five awards and five nominations to date.
“Luis creates a safe environment for actors and then, with expert and subtle guidance, brings out their strengths and empowers them to give powerful and nuanced performances for the camera. He is gentle, yet firm, knowledgeable and extraordinarily insightful as director and teacher. I highly recommend The Actor’s Gym for all actors.”

“Luis is brilliant, empowering, and wise. Being a masterful actor himself, he has a wonderful way of speaking with actors in an inspiring and affirming way. The structure of the class creates the perfect environment for exponential growth. My work has grown leaps and bounds since I started taking here and unlike many other classes, I have the footage to show for it.”
