Scholarships are not available, but we would never want to lose a student for financial reasons - please talk to us if you may need help and we will do our best!

The key tutor on this course will be Artemis director, Niki Robinson.

Formed to support the further training of those wishing to, or already working professionally as performers in film and television.

Past successes: many of our L.A. Ready students have gone on to work professionally as child actors in film and television in the UK. One student, Raneisha, gained a manager and agent in Los Angeles as a result of her training and lived in California for a year, gaining paid work in film and TV in the USA.

We provide film and television acting technique training to young actors. Most of our current students already have a considerable amount of experience as actors (see success stories), and work professionally in film and television. We do consider students who are just starting out though - if you are serious about a career in film and television call us!

L.A Ready does not require audition, but you MUST be serious about learning, and prepared to learn lines and do a little research in your own time. Students aged under 12 will be accepted if we feel they will enjoy and benefit from the course.

A maximum of 16 places available, mimimum of 10.
