We fundamentally believe that professional actors and creatives need a home, a place they can get the skills, tools and resources they need to continue to operate in their chosen field. We call it collective capitalism and at the core of that idea is a need to create a generation of Creative Entrepreneurs capable of sustaining their own work, developing their own careers and taking control of their own destiny.

The World has changed. The way entertainment is consumed now is far more in the hands of the individual that it ever ways. On both sides of the screen. We want to provide a place where motivated professionals can join the our professional community as an affordable price so we can share ideas, use resources, gain knowledge and move the industry forward – together.

Eventually our vision is to have a multi levelled venue with rehearsal rooms, hot ‘desking’ offices, edit suites and a late night cafe/bar. A vertically integrated studio capable of skills maintenance, career development, production development and eventually actualisation. We see ourselves as a multi-focused 21st century production company, and under that pretence most definitely not a drama school. Currently the studio provides space hireskills maintenance, career development, script readings and resources for actors and creatives. We currently offer ten different courses in Film, Theatre, Improvisation, Body & Voice, with a current membership of around 600 actors, 200 creatives, 7 core coaches and guest trainers from around the world. We’d like to welcome all of you to come with us.

We think it’s vital Australian working actors have a home where they can practice their craft, retain their skills and feel connected. The HubStudio is your home as a professional actor and creative to maintain your skills

For most professional actors in Sydney, not working on set or stage, there is been no place to-go-to to be a working professional actor to practice your craft, find the people and resource you need. Until now! We might or might not be movie stars, and roles will come and go, but that definition of ourselves will never fade. We want to change the mindset of actors, by giving us a place to be actors more often. We want actors to know in themselves what that means and what it takes.  We want to create a studio space capable of up skilling and connecting actors and creatives; providing them the resources and skills they need to develop their careers on a daily basis; not a drama school, an incubator, a Hub!

We know for a fact at the studio, that our members feel more connected, book more work, feel better prepared and less intimated in auditions and rehearsals, in foyers and (for many) in life in general; and why… because their apart of something they can control. They have a place to be a professional working actor, feel connected and involved, important and professional. It’s not rocket science; it’s social science. Its fact. The HubStudio courses are your opportunity to hone your skills, to practice your craft and keep the ‘muscle’ working – a professional actors gym. The studio concept is well engrained in the psyche of the U.S. and U.K. actor and we see no reason why it shouldn’t be the case in Australia, in fact we think it’s the missing link.
