The goal at the bongo productions studio is to provide actors with the skills and confidence needed to perform in any situation with outstanding results.
As an actor, no matter what comes your way in this industry, you will be more prepared and confident to successfully handle it when you train with Michael.
“An actor, child or adult, is never more glorious than when they are deeply and freely involved in play and I am always thrilled and honored to have helped facilitate that.” Michael Caruana
Michael’s focus in on the actor as a unique individual and their needs, with caring openness and without judgment, he provides an honest assessment and proceeds at the actor’s pace to discovering their unique talents and to cultivate a rich and thriving acting career. He approaches the work analytically and intuitively to develop the actor’s skills for exceptional results in auditions and performances.
There is no one way. However, when an actor is encouraged and challenged to honor their high calling, risk emotionally, face fears and obstacles, to prepare rigorously– by that I mean research, including character study, script analysis, do the homework in advance, then, when its time to perform, the actor is free to ‘play.’ Our work as actors is always play.
Michael provides a tailor-made program for every student he works with and provides a creative atmosphere that not only inspires but challenges students to be the best they can be. This kind of training will expand your range in character and emotion. He uses proven techniques that will give you the know-how to understand script analysis, auditioning, and working on-set.
