Hone your craft in the Gordon Pinsent Studio!
ACTRA Toronto’s video studio is named for Canadian performing icon (and ACTRA Toronto Award of Excellence winner), Gordon Pinsent.
Available exclusively to ACTRA Toronto members, the Gordon Pinsent Studio (GPS) is an on-site recording facility, located within ACTRA Toronto’s office, where members can rehearse on-camera or record self-tape auditions…and it’s FREE!
The Gordon Pinsent Studio includes:
- professional lighting
- a Canon HD digital camera and
- a monitor for playback in order to view your work.
Digital files are recorded to an SD card and/or may be directly transferred from the camera onto a Mac or PC laptop using a USB cable.
To make things a little easier:
We have two handy instructions cards (available at ACTRA Toronto 2nd Floor Reception):
- Camera Operation Instructions and Transferring Files to Your Laptop
- Recording and Transferring Files Using an SD Card
Please note: members must bring their own SD card(s) and/or USB cable.
