San Francisco acting schools are some of the best in the country. Not only is San Francisco home to some marvelous theaters and world-class actors. It's also a hop, skip and a jump away from Los Angeles. Many Los Angeles acting teachers frequently offer workshops in San Francisco. These acting classes often emphasize camera technique and other film-oriented skills.

San Francisco Acting Schools, Los Angeles Teachers

One of the reasons so many L.A. acting teachers offer classes at San Francisco acting schools is the draw of the city itself. San Francisco is an exceptionally beautiful, inviting city. Los Angeles is, well, less inviting, to say the least. However, L.A. has the constant work and business buzz that makes its teachers so valuable.

San Francisco acting schools benefit greatly from this dose of L.A. This is especially true for acting students who want to learn film and television technique. The best San Francisco acting schools strike a balance between stage and film acting.

They train students to be on camera, but ground them in a technique of scene study and text analysis. Learning to analyze the arc of a scene, its language, and its characters, is a very stage-based skill set. Learning to translate these choices to film or video is a different skill set entirely. The best schools provide both.
