ALEXANDRA CADENA : Our very own Next Actor Alum Alexandra Cadena graduated in 2017 from the prestigious Yale University and is currently doing her internship at M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center. A scientist and artist, Alex has earlier directed a musical titled 'Under' in New York that played at several festivals, produced a short film titled 'Dream Girl' in Houston that is currently being considered for the upcoming Niff Houston International Film Festival, and is passionate about teaching. There cannot be a better teacher for the kids to learn from such a bright, intelligent scholar who has proper film acting training in Stanislavski Method from Next Actor Studio and theatre training from the same ivy league school that produced Merryl Streep and Jodie Foster.   


A very entertaining and Empowering Workshop on film production and directing for the creative kids who will shoot their own scenes during the class and learn the use of space, camera, framing, photography, writing, blocking and much more from our multiple award winning international directors whose movies are available all over the nation.

Since 2003, Next Actor Studio has been training child actors the art and craft of on-camera acting. Many of our students have moved on to star in major motion pictures while some are taking break while finishing high school at the moment and some others are still acting and are in our adult classes.
Our students participate in the films we make -  independent films, Christian films, and student films and get their hands-on training and resume built. Our teachers are SAG-AFTRA and Equity Members from New York, Austin, Houston and Los Angeles.  Students must know how to read in order to join our class.

You may request your teacher for a report at the end of each class to keep up with your kid's session.
