At the Terry Knickerbocker Studio, we firmly believe excellence leads to success. The selective Take Charge of Your Career Program prepares actors for the rigors of being a professional in the entertainment industry and includes classes in Film & TV, auditioning, voiceover, and cold reading. The program culminates in an audition-based digital showcase for qualified students, which is shared with top professionals in the industry.


The Take Charge of Your Career Program prepares the actor for the demands of being an entrepreneur in the entertainment industry. We not only continue to nurture the artist’s needs but we also lay the foundation for their career. Today’s actor has to maintain their artistic identity while simultaneously running their own business. The ever-changing landscape of media (film, independent film, television, web series, shorts, theater, etc.) gives actors more chances to work. However, without a clear marketing plan and a strategic outlook, they run the risk of missing many of these opportunities.



The actor will explore and refine their brand as it pertains to the industry as a whole.  With a clear marketing strategy for film, television, web, and theater the actor will strategize an entrepreneurial plan for themselves while not losing sight of their artistic integrity and creative goals.
