Best class I have taken in LA. You cannot get what you learn with Mark anywhere else. He is very knowledgeable and his passion for imparting that knowledge shines through. What you will learn about the business side of acting and how that ties in with your self-awareness as an actor is invaluable. I feel very fortunate to have taken his "Actor, Know Thyself" class.

Let's cut straight to the chase here, if you want to be an actor, you need to truly understand how people perceive you. Your mom's opinion on your look and talent level don't count, unless your mom is a huge casting director...and in that case... I would love to meet your mom. :)
For all the other smucks who don't have any family connections ( air-guitar playing uncle doesn't count), we need some help and some guidance over here!

This is why Mark and his branding class is an absolute godsend, it starts you on the path to truly understanding the BUSINESS side of the acting game. Casting directors want to see a certain type of person in your headshot and your marketing, and Mark gives you the insiders scoop on how to convey the specific image, feeling and energy necessary to GET YOU IN THE ROOM!!!

It's all about the secrets. The little tidbits that end up expanding your mind to a new reality that immediately shifts your entire approach. This class did for me theatrically what Killian's commercial workshop did for me commercially. My confidence level shot through the roof because I now UNDERSTAND WHAT CASTING WANTS!!!

This class will set you up for success, plain and simple. It's for every level, all types of people. I just came off a 3 episode Guest Star, and I freaking am so happy I took this class.

Take the class. Stop telling people back home you are an actor and then go to your temp job and get involved in Trump flame wars on Facebook. This is much more productive.

And seriously, have your huge casting director mom call me already!

I learned a lot about myself and how people perceive me which I find invaluable as an actor. What I got in this class was way more than I expected and I found Mark to be a genuine caring man, thanks for sharing this wealth of knowledge.

If you are reading this review, deciding whether to take a class with Mark, look no further: DO IT.
After several years of slogging among the masses, Mark's Actor Type/Image class provided me with the knowledge, resources, and strategies on "How to be a working actor". If you want to accelerate your acting career (and why else would you be reading this), take the class. No need to thank me.

This is one of the best classes I have ever taken! A first hand guide (with a lot of personal touch) from a veteran Actor who is constantly working in Hollywood of things to do to make a career in acting! If you follow his guidance and work hard, there is no reason any of us cannot have a career in Hollywood!

Mark is a wonderful teacher who not only cares about how the industry perceives you, but he lets you know you are more than your character type. His assignments are powerful in that they actually garner results. For years I struggled to identify my "type" but the first lesson and subsequent lessons gave a dead on description of how the industry perceives me. All of his handouts are extremely useful and I will be using them for years to come!

I absolutely loved Mark Atteberry's "Actor, Know Thyself!" class! As an actual working actor himself, he provides you with very specific, thorough and useful information about your type, personality traits and overall essence, all while instructing and providing feedback with the utmost kindness and professionalism. To top it all off, he goes a step further by giving you material and a well of information about other elements that are pertinent and just as vital to a successful career in the entertainment industry. Yes, there are a lot of assignments (it gets easier as weeks go by), but it's all well worth it to get to the bottom of how the audience perceives you. I have been in LA for over 12 years, never having had a class like this, and I am now ready to take my career to the next level thanks to the incredibly valuable class taught my Mark. Thank you very much, Mark!

Mark's "Actor - Know ThySelf" class is like no other in the industry. He takes a methodical approach in helping you identify yourself as an actor and then subsequently blends these strengths with how the 'industry' will likely perceive/categorize you. Once you've found your niche, Mark then reviews specific tactics that will help you develop an action plan to market and brand yourself within the industry. I highly recommend this course to new actors as well as those actors who feel that they have plateaued and are looking for a course of action to define their next career move. A prereq really for any wana be working actor.

As a beginner to film acting, Mark's class is the best class I could possibly have taken. His work has been extremely helpful in understanding what I have to offer the film industry and who I am as a person/actor. He's also very open to answering questions and discussing things in class which is very helpful and helps tailor the class to each new group of students. I'm so glad that I took this class, it has made a huge difference for me!

Mark is seriously the best! He was so thorough and sweet in every class, answering any questions we had. I gained so much more confidence in myself as an actress and also as a person. We learned to embrace every aspect of ourselves, scars and all, while learning where we best fit in the Hollywood "machine." I left his class feeling encouraged and very hopeful! :) Thank you, Mark! I would recommend this class to anyone!

I booked my first two films within a week's time after taking Mark's class! I made better choices in roles I submitted myself for and was confident breathing who I am into my characters during auditions and interviews with the directors. All of this was due to taking Mark's classes. There are a lot of know 'thy' type classes in Hollywood. It seems as if a lot of teachers are eager to a cash in on the obvious need, but none of them can come close to creating all of the elements Mark has so successfully mastered. The research and time he has put into his lesson plans is exhaustive. It's a collaborative process between him, the other members of the class and oneself--that is truly magical and so dead on by way of results. This is not a class for slackers--it's a lot of work, but worth deserving of every effort. Besides connecting-the-dots for how casting directors view you, he also provides other valuable pieces of information on how to market yourself as an actor. He's so very genuine in sharing his own experiences warts and all, that you can't help but trust that he has the experience which backs up his knowledge. He really cares about you succeeding. An added bonus of fun while learning-- is that he provides some inside dish on some of the biggest names in Hollywood--all in the spirit of inspiration and encouragement. He's the real deal. I have a completely different take on my career as a result of spending six weeks with him. It is so worth the investment of time and money! Just-- do it!

Mark's Type, Image and Talent Evaluation Intensive class came highly recommended as the first class that I needed to take. I agree, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get a good idea of their unique branding. Through activities and "homework", he helps uncover the traits that help you stand out from everyone else. Mark provides real life experience and examples to aid in securing more auditions and increasing the likelihood of getting the parts. I would take another class offered by Mark in a heartbeat as he is genuinely invested and passionate about the information he provides.

Mark has the benefit of being a working actor himself and this is invaluable. He is up-to-date on the trends, and also knows what is here to stay. A great class for branding yourself, and also a great way to know what your strengths and weaknesses are as an actor. This class is a great way to get a game plan. I want to laminate some of his in-class handouts, they're so useful. Every day in class was full on new and useful information.

Mark is absolutely fantastic! By the end of the class you will know the key words that help you brand yourself! I learned a lot and it was refreshing to learn the "business" side of acting. Definitely recommend this class!

Mark's class is a one of a kind class that goes against almost everything you'll learn from an acting studio but completely makes sense. I don't want to give much away about his teachings because you'll get so much more for your career if you take the class as opposed to me telling you what he teaches. I truly believe this class will help me immensely in the long run and I hope to learn from Mark again someday.

I like the way Mark used the same principles behind regular business marketing and branding, towards how to find my niche as an actor. It was also very refreshing to reinforce the idea of just being me, present, and connected to my scene partner. We do all this work and preparation before the scene and then we are supposed to just let it go and be present during a scene, and this is much easier said than done, and it was nice to hear it from someone who is a consistent working actor, and be able to apply it and see how it reads on camera.

Mark offers a refreshing approach to figuring out how to truly just "be" in front of a camera and what people are seeing when you're there. He gives a straight-forward to the business and how you fit in just by being you. I appreciated his stories and insight because it's all time-tested. He's an actor also, so he gets it. I walked away from the class feeling more comfortable in being myself on-camera and having a better idea of how others see me in terms of a "type" and my role, for now, in the industry.

I absolutely loved Mark's class and cannot recommend it highly enough! Whatever level you are at, save yourself any more wasted time and learn the valuable information Mark has to offer. And he's not just teaching, he's a working actor with incredible insight into the realities of the business. My favorite aspect of class, what I take with me now in everything I do... Is how Mark taught us to really embrace our essences. Yes we are going to be perceived in certain ways based on things such as physical appearance, mannerisms, etc. and we have to learn to embrace that. But we also have those deeper, hidden aspects to our personalities just under the surface. And it is all of that... From our obvious types to our deeper essences... That we are encouraged to shine a light on, learn to love, learn to utilize in our careers, and truly embrace as all of the amazing things that make every one of us unique. Mark's message of working hard and doing your homework, staying grounded in who you are, embracing your flaws and quirks, and then letting go and actually enjoying the process... Is so simple and yet so absolutely eye-opening! Now when I audition, I'm able to let go and really find the character in myself and not get all "actor-y" and in my head as much. Mark's class will leave you feeling stronger and more grounded... A true game changer. Thank you Mark!

I've studied with some great teachers before...and then there's Mark. Not only is he a phenomenal teacher, he is a mentor to the students he teaches as well; and that is an immeasurable value. Drawing from his own personal experiences of success as an actor navigating the ins/outs of the audition room, as well as the experiences of Casting Directors and Producers, Mark guides his students along a path towards becoming aware of one's own "type" in this industry, becoming comfortable with one's own "essence," and learning how to marry the two in a way that encompasses the essential "you" as an actor walking into the audition room. He shows you how to get out of your own way when auditioning, by helping you become aware of how you get in your own way and diminish the very thing casting wants to see when you walk into the room..."you." As an actor, I've spent a great deal of time focusing entirely on the techniques I was taught of trying to be someone else, as opposed to just being myself within the frame work of a character as Mark teaches. And it has changed my game in the audition room, in how I market myself, in how I handle my business and communication, and how I handle my strategies. Since finishing his workshop last month, I've booked a supporting in a feature, and have increased my auditions by refining how I market myself; and how my agent and manager markets me. And along the way, I made friends with the people I was in class with, and have been encouraged to start working on my own projects as well. If you're looking for a workshop that takes you beyond the level of acting technique classes, and teaches you all of the things about type, essence, presence, networking, how to bring yourself to your work, and how to own your uniqueness in a confident way that typical acting classes don't teach you...then Mark's workshop is for you.
