radical.

We dig deeper.

The Westside's most unique & diverse acting studio, in the heart of Venice Beach, CA. Where craft meets transformation.

RAW Acting Studio's founder & master teacher Guy Camilleri and his team are on the hot pursuit of the truth. Your truth. And that means we dig deep. And going deeper than most acting classes is not for everyone. But if you're ready to roll up your sleeves and commit to honoring your boundless imagination and artistic integrity in service of living out loud (without apology) as a human being, then we are the right community for you.

In our classes, we use craft (acting, writing and directing techniques) and transformative tools to reveal, challenge and unleash the full creative self-expression of actors, writers, and directors. RAW Acting Studio operates from a place of love & support inside a safe and dynamic space, resulting in a new-found level of self confidence for artists to create specific work that many describe as undeniably RAW.

 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Guy Camilleri is a master teacher.  

I was working on a film and used his class at RAW Acting Studio to deepen my understanding of the character I was playing. The information I got under his guidance was invaluable and changed the course of the shoot for me.  On top of that, I left every class exhilarated and in love with this art form.  Guy has my highest endorsement as a coach and as a person."

OUR METHODOLOGY

Our proprietary RAW Flow™ methodology is the foundation for everything at RAW. 

The RAW Flow™ is a synthesis of specific, proprietary techniques and tools to assist you in facilitating the experience of what it feels like to be fully self-expressed as an actor, writer, and director. This radical, authentic process results in getting out of your way to feel more confident and liberated, and to best reflect who you are in the world.

 

 

Authenticity

 

 


VULNERABILITY

TRUST

FULL SELF-EXPRESSION

INTIMACY

MOMENT-TO-MOMENT

We encourage you to drop the pretense and speak your truth.

 

 

We are committed to creating and holding a safe space for you to reveal yourself.

 


We hold space for you to let go and surrender to the moment.

 

We guide you to experience what it feels like to relate authentically.

 

We provide the tools for you to experience and define what it feels like to be in the moment

 

 

Raw Flow™ was designed for you to become a fully self-expressed artist and human being. At RAW you achieve this by dropping the pretense, revealing yourself, surrendering to the moment and relating authentically to another human being in order to experience what if feels like to live life in the moment; moment to moment.
