The Howard Fine Acting Studio is a well established and critically acclaimed acting studio based in LA and this year they opened an Australian studio in Melbourne.  Howard Fine and a number of their top acting teachers regularly travel to Australia to teach and as part of his studio based program Howard will be hosting more of his famous masterclasses in Sydney and Melbourne.  


The Howard Fine Acting Studio is home to arguably the best acting-school faculty in the world with each individual tutor being personally and genuinely endorsed by such industry luminaries as; Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Connelly, Juliette Binoche, Sir Ian McKellen, Josh Brolin and Leonardo DiCaprio as well as a host of well-known Australian actors:

Last July, Howard Fine came to Australia for the very first time to run a series of Masterclasses - Howard had this to say about his first trip to Australia:


“I returned from my first trip to Australia on a high from the experience. I literally raved to my colleagues about the talent and the dedication of the Australian actors. The actors were hungry to learn and that is what any true teacher wants. The transformations in a short concentrated period of time were remarkable. It was clear to me that we could achieve the most extraordinary results if we brought the entire course program over and made an investment in the training and development of Australian actors.”


In just four short months the Howard Fine Acting Studio has grown to be one of the leading actor-training institutions in Australia. Throughout the year the tutors from the parent studio in LA arrive one after the other to lead a series of technique-driven, world-class acting programs – the effect this is having on the local performance landscape has been profound:


"Howard shook me out of a complacency I didn't even know I had and re-introduced me to the kaleidoscope of true craft, technique and possibility"

Freya Stafford

(The Clinic, Underbelly Files, Dirt Game, Neighbours)


“Within my 30 years of casting, I have viewed and worked with many actors. Howard Fine’s technique is a contributing factor to those actors who consistently stand out.”

Victoria Burrows

(The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Lovely Bones)


Howard Fine is an extremely skilled teacher. He has the ability to help actors create beyond their own experience in a way that is both exciting

and compelling. Personally, I feel he is one of the greatest acting teachers working today.’

(Martin Campbell – Director, Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness, Green Lantern)
