Thanks Bryan for believing in her, pushing her beyond her comfort zone and teaching her to pursue her dream with confidence!”

“I studied with many teachers in Los Angeles and Bryan brings more to the table than any other I have had the pleasure to work with. He works with you on the emotional and the technical; understanding how to utilize the camera as part of your performance and convey the truth of the moment for the audience. I never found this blend before. He also understands the business side of the profession which is just as important for most actors. You can truly go to him for anything. Most importantly he’s an incredible person with an open, active, creative mind that gives all he has for his clients.I am so much more confident, prepared, capable, and ultimately creative and honest, as an actor because of working with Bryan.”

Thank you, Bryan.”

“Bryan Fox is an incredible and inspirational acting coach. Without him I would not be the actor I am nor have the career I do today; he instilled in me the many methods of acting, and more importantly, to be positive and believe in myself. This is a tough business! Not weeks after we started working together, I landed a major role in a 20 million dollar DreamWorks film.

Great coach, great friend. Love this dude.”

“Working with Bryan Fox was the most helpful and beneficial experience I could have had to prep for auditions for college. Before working with Bryan, I didn’t even think I would be good enough to pursue acting at all, and now, thanks to Bryan’s patience and experience, I am proud to say that I was accepted with a partial scholarship into the New York Film Academy and now I am one of the twenty students accepted into the University of the Arts acting program. I would highly recommend Bryan to anyone looking to start their career as an actor, and to have fun doing it.”

“Class with Bryan really help me develop the real me. He taught me that acting is listening and reacting. Being in the moment is key. He was very patient and gentle with my 9 year old daughter. He understands kids and what they need to progress.”

“If you happen to be an actor in the Philadelphia area, you would be wise to seek out Bryan Fox as an acting teacher or coach. He is as good as it gets. His ability as a teacher knows no bounds, and he is just as good at acting and directing as he is at teaching and coaching. Obviously, I hold him in high regard and urge any and all Philadelphians to take advantage of the chance to study with him.”

“Having worked with Bryan to video tape film auditions I can say he is the complete professional. He knows exactly what he’s doing & knows how to help an actor get the best results for an audition tape. I have had nothing but positive feedback from casting agents each time. I feel he is an asset, will be using his services again & do not hesitate to recommend him, highly. The following is a casting director’s response to my first taped audition that Bryan helped me with for a film in London…

‘Hi Thomas, thanks so much for sending me your terrific self taped audition. I thought it was brilliant, really made me laugh and got his character across beautifully.’

That says it all!”

“I have had the privilege of watching my son’s acting improve tremendously under Bryan’s tutelage.

He provides insight and inspiration to all his students whether they are newcomers to the business or seasoned veterans. His teaching methods have enabled my son to understand nuances of roles and that different roles require different styles and skill sets. All the while providing, positive support, direction and encouragement. He provides tools for actors to be able to give a good performance for reading a scene or preparing for an audition but just as important he wants the actor to understand, appreciate and hone their craft. He is generous with his time and talent and truly is an asset to the acting community.”

Liz Tronieri

Parent of 10 year old actor Matt Tronieri

“I audited several acting classes before deciding on Bryan’s class. As a new actor, I needed a teacher who would instruct and challenge me, but who’d also be kind. Acting is about bearing one’s soul. We need to feel safe. Bryan creates a safe space for actors to discover and grow in our craft. He also brings years of industry experience to his teaching, so he understands the challenges we’ll face and how to stay passionate in the face of rejection. I’m now living in Los Angeles, following my dream. Bryan was a big encouragement when I said I wanted to do that. I’m so thankful for the training I received with him.”

“Bryan Fox is an exceptional acting teacher and coach. He knows his craft, speaks with clarity and authority about it, and expertly helps the actor transform words on the page into realistic actions that

are authentic and believable. Bryan’s techniques always are sensitive to the needs and sensitivities of

the student while respecting everyone’s integrity in the class. Bryan’s supportive, intelligent instruction continually enables students to see their own progression even in the course of a single class.”

Thomas Daniel Dwyer

Thomas Daniel Dwyer

Screen and Stage Actor

“It was March of my senior year in high school. I met with an acting coach for my college audition, but I never felt as though she listened to me or my ideas for my monologue, because of that I never really felt confident in it. I met with Bryan and the first thing he did was listen to me then helped me understand my monologue in a way I hadn’t even looked at it. Bryan helped me dig deep into my monologue to understand my character and how she really relates to me. He acted with me so I could really feel what my character felt and encouraged my ideas. He explained acting techniques in clear ways that really hit home. Suffice to say, when I walked into my final audition, I nailed the piece. Now, I’m at DeSales University for Acting/Directing and I couldn’t be happier. As corny as this sounds, I really do have Bryan to thank.”

Kelly Calaghan

Bryan taped a movie audition for me at his studio in Wayne. Courteous and patient, he is not only a good photographer, but he is also a good director. He gave me notes that improved my performance and ultimately made for a competitive audition tape. He is upbeat and, may I repeat,patient? He also “packaged” everything according to the copious instructions and sent out the file before I left. Very efficient. Very professional in every way. I would highly recommend him. Needless to say, I will be going back should a juicy part come my way.

Stephanie Shore

Bryan really cares about the actor and creates a supportive professional atmosphere. I never feel rushed by him. He is willing to take the time it takes to get it right. His flexibility gives me peace of mind if a casting director needs tape quickly; I know that he will produce an audition tape that enhances my skills and sets me up for success. I am not a particularly computer savvy person, but know I can rely on Bryan to properly format self- taped submission to accommodate the casting director’s IT requirements and give me my best chance to get the part. I encourage you to share his talents with others. They will thank you for it.

My name is Bob Heath and I recently worked with Bryan Fox on taping my audition for a film in Pittsburgh. I strongly recommend Bryan to you and to all SAG actors in town. He takes his time, makes quality suggestions and makes the actor feel at ease and comfortable during the taping. He provides great advice and suggestions as to how to best play the scene. I’ll definitely work with Bryan again

I am writing on behalf of Bryan Fox with whom I have worked for my recent audition for “Those Who Kill”. I had never met Bryan prior to my most recent audition. Having recently moved to the Main Line of Philadelphia from Manhattan, I was desperately searching for someone to help me with my audition. Bryan was recommended to me by a friend and fellow actress. I can honestly say that Bryan’s on camera work was one of the best coaching sessions I have ever received in my 17 years as an equity actress. His coaching was specific, creative, honest and direct. I would highly recommend him for on camera film coaching to anyone and everyone in the business. He is humble and extremely talented… a nice combo in my book!

Bryan Is really wonderful to work with and makes it easy to get the job done! Bryan has a tons of great ideas and suggestions that make the process of putting a scene on tape stress free. He was helpful in many aspects, not just pushing the play and record button.

Prior to attending Organic Acting Academy, I had very little sense of what believable acting was, until I began working Bryan. He is able to break down a scene or audition piece and help me understand how to be true when conveying a story. I recently booked a principal role on Boardwalk Empire by implementing what Bryan teaches in class. While on-set I was sitting alone, the director walked over to me and said, “You are here cause you didn’t act in your audition, you were real” – I owe that complement to Bryan cause he instills that mentality into his students and my experience is a result of studying with at Organic Acting Academy!

Jason Boyle

I cannot say enough about Bryan Fox and the classes I am taking at The Organic Acting Academy. After only a few short weeks, I was able to apply what I learned in class to book a role in House of Cards. I am certain that had I not had the support and knowledge provided by Bryan, I would not have felt as confident in the audition room as I did. Thanks Bryan for your continued wisdom and expertise!”
