'if it happened to me, it can happen to you"  Walter Alza

How to become an actor?

Here is Walter Alza's story, I hope it helps each time you have doubt, worry or fear that you cant achieve something

Imagine coming to Canada all the way from the country of wine and tango: Argentina, in the late 80s, with no English skills and wanting to make it big in the most difficult industry in the world, in showbizz. Crazy idea? Of course.

So, for mnay years, Walter Alza was told by many people in the business, friends, family members, that he should find another career, and that he will never make it but he proved the establishment wrong.

Walter Alza (Co star of Get Rich or Die Tryin with 50 cent and Oscar winners and nominated actors Viola Davids & Terrance Howard, directed by legend Jim Sheridan). Walter has won multiple awards a has worked in over 100 episodes(actra , union credits) of television and film, including several major Hollywood films with academy award winning actors and directors, giving memorable performance, Walter Guest Stars on many award winning shows, including Flashpoint and starring in roles such as the 90 episodes Tv show hit Metropia. Walter has succeeded not only in becoming an actor, but as a director, writer and producer, and he shares it at Alza Acting Studios with all his students.

Alex OzerovAlex hasn't stop working since 2013 on TV and Film, when Alex started training with us he had ZERO Experience, he has been training at Alza Acting Studios for years, taking private coaching with Walter Alza and in group classes (almost 10 years).
"I highly recommend this studio! I owe my current success to them. This studio is where my journey as an actor began. Aside from the skills and techniques of acting that you learn, the most valuable things that I got out of here is the work ethic, discipline, and the character you build along the way, which prepares you for auditions and work on a real set. The class culture is positive and high energy. A real family-like vibe. An environment where true improvement is harnessed

 

"Walter Alza has been an inspiration to many of my clients. He gives them confidence, perspective and a new approach to auditioning which ultimately helps them win the role." Shari Quallenberg Agent/OWNER AMI Agency

 

Alza Acting Studios is The destination for the aspiring actors and professional actors in Canada

 

The Alza System will offer you the chance to develop your instrument and nourish your craft to work on film, television and theatre. In each of Alza Acting Studios classes, it is our mission to develop each actors truth, body, soul and voice. For us it is about the craft, quality versus quantity. The Alza approach is made of a few simple steps, yet we pay respect to our history, to the great legendary teachers such as Sanford Meisner, Stanislavsky, Lee Strasberg and Stella Adler to name a few, they were actors before they become great teachers and directors, so they got what it was needed to be great.  We believe that any one wishing, needing to explore acting and or who wants to become crafted should learn from professionals who actually do the work and understand what it means to be standing on a set or an audition.  The work of the actor is different from class to performance on set, but the work ethic is the same. Discipline is a must, is not enough to just have talent.

PRACTICE KEEPS YOU PERMANENT (TM)

How much time are you putting into improving your craft? How often are you practicing at home, working with privates, trying new things? How long have you been studying for? Does it really take 10,000 hours to master a craft? How about 5,000 to have success in a craft? 1,000 to gain good knowledge at a craft?

At Alza Acting Studio, student and award winning actor Alex Ozerov studied for four years before landing a major role. That is the quivalent to the time it takes to get a university degree. In that time, he took multiple classes, privates, and studied on his own time, giving time to working on his craft equivalent to having a full-time job as much as he could. At 30 hours a week, over the course of four years, he’d attained 6,420 hours. And he would certainly say that he hadn’t mastered the craft in that time.

Even if you’re only looking to attain knowledge of a craft, if someone only studies three hours a week on a subject, it will still take them 6.4 years to attain 1,000 hours Therefore, to achieve 10,000 hours it would take 64 years of study at three hours a week. Needless to say most of us do not have that much time to take classes.

As any actor today who started with theatre work, commercials, voiceovers, or whatever work they could before attaining success in film and television and they will tell you that the most important aspect of gaining work is to practice, learn, and not expect success to happen overnight. When the door to opportunity knocks, you will be ready for it. Walter Alza
