Likewise, any special features, or exclusive opportunities offered in our premium plans are intended for the paying participant only, and are non-transferable. Vision of the Craft is an educational program, designed for actors of all levels to learn and hone their craft. It is designed as a weekly course, and subscriptions are based upon this suggested pacing, however actors may study at their own pace and receive new content weekly as long as their subscription is active.
We are not a Talent Counseling/Career Service, Talent Agency or Management Company, or Casting Office. The studio is not responsible for any error/omission in the services we provide which could in any way impact an actor's professional endeavors. No professional acting training can guarantee professional acting success - as a deeply personal artform, results may vary. Lessons, classes, lectures, homework, coaching feedback, critiques, advice and all other such guidance are for educational purposes only. We make no promise of employment or professional opportunities, no guarantee of work, nor official legal or financial counseling. Results may vary. The studio makes no specific promise on any actor's growth, and is not liable for an actors development or defect as the result of taking this course. The studio is bonded, and insured as a private acting studio, not subject to the specific provisions set forth by AB 1319.

Once the complete course has been delivered/made accessible, the subscription fees shall cover perpetual access for as long as the customer is active/paid in full/in good standing.

Initial payment will begin the subscription immediately, and will cover one month (at least 4 weeks) worth of new emails, class content, and features described in the chosen tier. Monthly payments are charged automatically, and recur on the same date each month from the time of initial enrollment (ie. if you subscribe on the 9 th, your payment and monthly subscription will renew on the 9 th of the following month unless you cancel within a week of that date). Recurring payments will be charged to the card on file. You may update this information at any time, however a valid card must be on file for the subscription to renew.

reflect in your account - to avoid being charged for the next month, be sure to cancel your subscription at least one week prior to your renewal date.
