CineGym.TV - Transform Your Body of Acting

CineGym is exactly what is says it is, a gym for the cinematic arts. CineGym began 15 years ago in Dunwoody, GA where 100's of working and aspiring actors, writers, directors, producers and even photographers got together twice a week.

Now, it's back and we are forming a new generation of actors and writers who know how to work together to advance their careers or just for the love of the art!

We will be collecting interest from actor and writers, then the call will go out about the start date and convenient location in the Atlanta area.

The first night, CineGym does "cold reads" from scripts actually written by members. Each scene is cast at the beginning of the evening and we proceed to performances. A facilitator would then lead criticism of the performances and people would learn from each other what they looked like from the outside.

The second night, we get together at an interesting location and actually professionally shoot scenes, sometimes the very ones we had previously seen cold. We saw various stages of polish on these pieces and everybody had a great time.

We were proud to have among us the very best actors and writers in the Atlanta area including many household names in Atlanta film today.

Bryan E. Hall facilitated CineGym until he decided to go to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California Film School for his Masters. Prior to that he had co-owned the Atlanta Film Institute and co-published two entertainment newspapers.

After many years in LA and abroad, he has returned to Atlanta and CineGym is reborn as a division of film production company, Aware Productions and in partnership with YourAct, we will produce high quality product for your reel and for the public.

Here, you will find a variety of film workshops and actor services to encourage the perfection of craft! Private workshops are available by appointment but we will regularly offer film acting, camera work, indy film-making/guerrilla film, and from time to time we will even offer showcases as a culmination of the work we have done over time.
