The Training

Training at the studio is rigorous and demanding and is designed for actors who are as serious about the art and craft of acting as they are booking.

Actors today must have a solid, well- practiced technique upon which the actor can rely upon consistently.

At The Robert Mello Studio, this is exactly what we specialize in.

The Robert Mello Studio is dedicated to Meisner-based actor training. The Meisner Technnique is considered by most to be the best technique for film and stage, as it results in very natural performances.

This isn’t your parent’s Meisner Technique

Sanford Meisner created a brilliant technique – for his time.

Our approach to his philosophy is updated. It’s higher octane, raw and springs from and builds on who actors are today, not what we saw in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

You will learn how to:

-Be in the moment and alive in front of the camera or on stage.
-Celebrate gifts and flaws equally.
-Work consistently from a brave and present place.

Resulting in a technique for crafting film, television and stage performances that are:

-Grounded, organic and natural

Through dedication, hard work, and a willingness to take risks, actors leave with a solid, time tested technique that instills a profound level of confidence that serves both performance and auditions.
