If you're looking for a place to start, Del Mar Media Arts is the place! There are so so so many places looking to take your money and read to you from the same book you can buy at Barnes & Nobel or amazon. DMMA and their Staff use their decades worth of experiences to teach you not only the fundamentals, but what you need to take yourself to the next level.
I began taking classes there two years ago, and couldn't be happier! Bud & Bunny have given me all of the necessary tools to really hone my craft and make it my own. Voice Classes, On Camera Classes, Improv Classes, its all there, ready for you to take hold of and make your own!
They have been around for over 20+ years, and they do care about turning out a quality product, namely, their students. I have witnessed this first hand.
DMMA does not guarantee you anything, they simply EMPOWER you! It is up to each of us to do the work required to make it in this industry. Some make it faster than others true, but we all are given the basic tools from the Staff at DMMA. They create a solid foundation, and it is up to you, to build upon that.
Since my involvement with Del Mar Media Arts, I am now constantly auditioning for and, more importantly, BOOKING work left and right. On Camera, On Stage and behind the Mic. All of which is due to the lessons learned and the contacts gained by working these awesome instructors.
Now, some others have made negative comments based upon the fact that there were others more talented than they in their own class, and subsequently, blamed DMMA for this. To that I say:
We are our own tools for success, we make our way down the path. No one else can do this for us.
Believe, Dream, and you will Receive!
