Holy Wood Studio: Training Future Actors, Calling Christians into the Culture

Holy Wood Acting Studio holds its Grand opening Event on March 25, 2011 and an extensive course begins on March 28, 2011

We need Christians to respond to the call of Christ the Divine Artist and take their place in creating new "epiphanies' of beauty"; people who can help others to do the same by pursuing the vocation of the arts. I am thrilled to report on a new venture which is taking this task to heart by training future actors. The leaders of this effort, rather than retreat from Hollywood, have set up a new studio right in its heart. It is called Holy Wood Acting Studio.

I recently had the privilege of speaking with the CEO and President of Holy Wood Studio, Carlos Espinosa. He and his wife Stella founded the effort. They are people of genuine, living Catholic Christian faith. I urge our global readers to enter this web site and experience the vision of people who truly understand the implications of their faith. They are responding to the call to create "Epiphanies of Beauty" and not retreating from the culture. In fact, they built this effort right in the film and acting capital of the world, Hollywood, California. Seeing the seeds of beauty already there, they are helping to transform it from within as leaven and light.
