"[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."

A small collection of recent work from Studio 24/7 students!

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.

As seen on TV...

 

Students at Studio 24/7 have worked on shows including:

"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!"

SERENA LANEY

SAMSUNG, FX PROMOS, JELLY BELLY, HURLY, GOOGLE, HONDA, T-MOBILE, MARRIOT, HTC, SPRINT, POP CHIPS, STARBUCKS, PIZZA HUT, RICE KRISPIES, LOWE'S, WENDY'S, NEXTEL, BUFFALO WILD WINGS, DIRECT TV, EMERGEN-C, SOUTHWEST, HANES (with Michael Jordan), GOT MILK (with Selma Hayek), LINCOLN, HALO 4 and so much more! 

Here are some of our students in action!

"If you are not going out on auditions, if you don't have an agent, GET TO MARK'S CLASS!! You will be a the next level before you know it."

DOUG SINCLAIR

(New Girl, The Middle, Justified)

"[Mark] coaches you into being the full fledged artist and creative being you are. He saw my strengths before I did, and guided me towards embracing my talent to actively working in the industry AND creating all my own content and brand as a creative. When I met Mark, I had no credits and no idea how Hollywood even workd. Within a few months of studying with him, I got an agent, a manager, and my SAG card. It wasn't long before I booked Guest Star roles on network TV shows (Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Animal Kingdom), a lead role in a CBS pilot and most recently booking my first lead in a studio feature film, the 2020 reboot of American Pie! 

"If you want to be a working, confident, talented and successful actor in this industry there is no one who can get you there like Mark McPherson and Studio 24/7. Mark is SO much more than an acting coach. He knows how to guide an artist to find their own passion and technique. His care and encouragement helped me achieve vulnerability in my acting, confidence in myself and he helped me rehabilitae a genuine love for the journey. I wouldn't have it any other way."

CHELSEA ALDEN

(Recurring Guest Star on Netflix 13 Reasons Why, Grey's Anatomy, VEEP, American Horror Story)

"The administrative knowledge and self-worth skills that I learned from him and bricks of gold!"

NATASHA BEHNAM

(American Pie: Girls Rules, Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Animal Kingdom)

NISHI MUNSHI

(Lethal Weapon,The Originals, The Magicians)

"I had a very long and successful commercial career when I met Mark, but hadn't been brave enough to go after TV and film. He helped me believe in myself and trust the work we did in class, before I even had an agent or knew any of the actor terms and techniques. I've since booked both TV and film, read for and been pinned multiple times for some of the biggest casting directors in the biz."

MAITE GARCIA

(Bold and the Beautiful, Jane the Virgin, The Descendant)

"Mark's class kicks your butt into action! He'll force you to send that email to casting you've been flinching on, attack that scene you're intimidated by, and support your fellow classmates in an amazing community he's built. You get an acting class and a career group when you team up with Mark at Studio 24/7 and you are absolutely going to see growth... whether you like it or not! ;)"

"Mark is a great motivator of people and artists. Combining the enthusiams of a sports coach, the inspiration of your favorite teacher, and the no-nonsense truth of a good friend."

KRISTEN VAGANOS

(Lifetime's Mommy Would Never Hurt You, I Am Lisa)

Classes at Studio 24/7

We all know the story. A fresh, young face moves to Hollywood to make it as an actor; bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to take the industry by storm! After 3 years of working as a bartender, not booking so much as a co-star or commercial and only hearing from teacher after teacher that he hasn't got what it takes- he hangs his head, packs up and moves back home to Oklahoma...
 
NOT here.
 
At Studio 24/7, we believe each actor has a quality that is unique to only you. Mark gives one-on-one attention to each student to discover that quality, nurture it and help you take control of your career.
