I love inspiring young talent and teaching them about the real world of acting. I have been in this business since 1960 and can't imagine doing anything else!
Reno is the real deal!!!! Clearly a master of his craft!!!!! Tells you what you need to hear and not necessarily what you want to hear. Made my 1st Coaching session extremely enjoyable and I can’t wait to continue on this journey.
Reno is an excellent coach and very knowledgeable of the industry. He offers actors a place to grow, network, and the ability to hone their craft all within the Actors Gym. Not only are classes available, professional headshots and various other forms of coaching services are available. I highly recommend Actors Gym, a place where an actor of any level can feel comfortable improving their skills.
Mr. Venturi is very knowledgeable and very well respected. I first read about him in the NY Times where he was referred to as the "Actors Advocate". I have also seen his casting notices for the past several years. I found him by doing a search and then on FB where the Actors Gym had almost 5000 followers. After meeting and working at the Actors Gym I am a lifer!
