OPEN CITY ACTING STUDIO TESTIMONIALS
WHAT OPEN CITY STUDENTS ARE SAYING
"Alani is hands down one of the best acting teachers I’ve had so far. He taught me to work harder, think further and make stronger bolder choices and commit to the choices I’ve made in my acting. Alani taught me how to dissect a script to have a further deeper understanding of the story, the subtext, the character and their relationships. He has a deep understanding of vivid behavior and details that will make a scene or a character come to life. He is a well all-around trained acting teacher and a super hardworking person in general which has a positive influence on your own work ethics and your personal goals."
"It's very rare to find a coach like Alani, and I've been lucky enough to train one on one with him since moving to Los Angeles last year. His uncanny ability to disarm a script mixed with his sharp and embolden vision for character choices allow actors to drop into scenes and truly make them their own. I credit [Alani] with re-igniting my creative spirit and giving me the artistic choices to play with characters and remember WHY I love acting. He's given me the freedom to be a true artist as well as the passion to put 100% of myself into my craft. I love working with him for auditions but on deeper level in scene study and body work. [Alani] has the skill, the heart and the expertise to help move actors to the next level of their craft and is as good as it gets."
"Having worked with Alani has refined my artistry beyond that of being just an Actor. He always encourages me to see beyond the “generic choice” in search of the “most interesting choice" that, when personalized, will create “vivid behavior”. He has helped me acknowledge my power as an Actor. I've been lucky to have met him so early in my artistic journey."
"There is no acting teacher that is more honest than Alani. If you want to be constantly challenged and pushed as an actor look no further. His classes are not only great for building your skill set and confidence, but the personal attention that you get as an actor and as a person in general, is insurmountable."
