About

"[Mark] takes the best parts of you, and highlights them, appreciates them, and helps you nurture them." "...he protects your artistry from your human tendancy to negate it."

"Mark has helped me grow not just as an actor, but an artist and a person. In one of the most fast moving and competitive industries, Mark has quite simply allowed me to find my breath."

Technique

At STUDIO 24/7, you develop your acting technique and your acting career at the same time.  Your acting technique is developed through scene study, cold readings, improv & exercises. 
 
Each actor's "technique" is as individual as a golfer's "swing" - it is specific and personal to each person.
 
Mark McPherson has been a career coaching expert for over 25 years.  He trains you how to work the business, and guides you to success immediately.
 
Every actor wants to be the best he can be, but too many actors stay in class, working on this "idea of perfection" and then take YEARS to book jobs! 

Our classes encourage you to work in the industry as quickly as possible, building more confidence and valuable experience.

"Mark McPherson is my Phil Jackson. Mark's triangle offense? Work on the craft, the admin, and the attitude. But the thing about Mark that really sets him apart is his intuition and his unbridled enthusiasm for every single one of his students. He knows that one size doesn't fit all. He has a sixth sense about what each individual needs to reach the next level. It's a gift."

JULIE PHILLIPS

(Guest Star on The Young and the Restless, multi-award nominated writer/actress)

"Within 3 months of studying with Mark, I booked my first network TV show and got to work opposite Minnie Driver! Since coming to Studio 24/7, I have consitently built my skills as an actor, my work ethic as a business owner, and my attitude as a person navigating the craziness in this industry. My one regret is no having joing class sooner!"
