Meet Arhley, our instructor for Intro to TV + Film, On-Camera Baseline, and Audition Technique.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having lived in various different states all over the country, experience is something Arhley has been able to accumulate plenty of. Originally an east-coaster born in New York and raised in New Jersey, the arts has always surrounded Arhley. It only took 3 years until he found the passion for acting and after his first role on stage he has studied and pursued the craft with great enthusiasm. Said passion has led him to study and graduate from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, and participate in projects from New York, to Los Angeles, to now here in Atlanta, Georgia. Since arriving in Georgia mid last year, he has appeared in 5 different commercials for brands such as Geico, Smart Water, and Popeyes. With each experience there is something to grow from, and Arhley can’t wait to pass along that growth to others who have the same passion we have here at Catapult.

Meet Christen, our instructor for On-Camera Intermediate for Adults.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hailing from Chesapeake, Virginia, Christen has been working as a professional actress and lifestyle print model for the past several years across film, television, commercial and print. She graduated from George Mason University with a BA in Communication. After working in the corporate world for two years, she took a leap of faith and followed a creative path as an artist working mostly in front of the camera. Her life motto is, “Never get too comfortable as life throws many curveballs”.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For Christen, this art form is a beautiful canvas that gives her the freedom to paint as she sees fit and marvel in the sweet moments of truth and authenticity. She loves co-creating with other artists and encouraging them to be their best self on any given day. She has a personal knack for analyzing network and cable formulaic mediums.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She is quite the avid Netflix fan who loves streaming her favorite series for the tenth time, brewing one too many espresso K-cups and fighting for the tiny unheard voices.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Christen made her acting debut in Victoria Rowell’s Amazon Prime series Jacqueline And Jilly. Her other on-camera credits include the MGM biopic, Respect, a Gravitas Ventures film, Good, a new series and several indie shorts. She is very grateful to have gained fodder from industry vets including, Liesl Tommy, Susan Batson, Carl Ford, Sara Mornell, Richard Brooks, Victoria Rowell, Rona Dana and John Rosenfeld, to name a few.

My child has learned so much, gained so much self-confidence and is learning how to love the acting process. Thank you to Julia and Erik and everybody at the school for being such a great place for children to not only learn how to not only act like someone else but how to be their true selves. ❤️
If your child has aspirations of acting greatness, would like to improve their acting skills, needs to shoot an audition tape, or anything else acting related there is ONE and ONLY ONE place to do all of that Catapult Acting. Erik Lingvall and all of his amazing instructors will not only help your child become a better actor, but also a better person.
Someone asked me where I found a bank to do a Coogan Acount and now I can't find the conversation. The only bank I could find was City National Bank in Buckhead. We did most of it over the phone, then I had to go sign in person, but my daughter didn't have to attend. But she did a job in North Carolina, the show's now cancelled, and I don't think she ever got that money deposited. It's another thing you really have to stay on top of. Georgia jobs have asked me for the account, but then just paid her in full. Every single job has been a completely different process! Erik's right, it's the wild wild west.
Coming to Catapult Acting Studio! Oct 20th & 21st.
"...What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I'm especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story." One of our favorite excerpts from Oprah's speech last night at the #goldenglobes --- Telling other people's truth through the power of story telling is such a gift, but telling your own truth is an even bigger one. Don't stand for diminishing yourself, or letting others do it for you - and don't be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve. Happy Monday from the Catapult family!
Thank you so much for hosting the CSA Inclusion and Diversity Open Call today. My daughter, Lily D Moore, was so nervous. However, you all made her feel super comfortable and she had a blast!
Thank you Julia Jones! Cruz’s Agent and Managers are VERY happy with the audition and the quality of the tape! YOU ROCK! 🙌🏻
So excited about the final 5 workshops of the year at Catapult!! ATL actors hope to see you there :)
Very professional Group!
