HELPING ACTORS FEEL LESS CRAZY, FROM COAST TO COAST

Helping actors feel less crazy, from coast to coast.

No matter where you live, no matter your casting, and no matter your credits, this career is crazy AF.
But that doesn't mean you have to be...

WELCOME TO THE ULTIMATE ACTOR COMMUNITY

Actor-life is really lonely. There we said it. 

Sure, on set or in class you get scene partners. But how often in your day to day actor life do you feel supported? When you do feel like your fellow actors have your back, whether you're getting new headshots, emailing an agent, or need advice on your side-jobs...our guess (and experience) is not very often.

As two actors on opposite coasts, we decided to change that once and for all. 



BUT F*ck that

forget the 'competition mindset' 

There is no way you can survive this career without the help of your fellow actors. And instead of gate-keeping, we want to share EVERYTHING. So forget the dog-eat-dog (ew) world that used to exist. TM is all about sharing. 

Around here a rising tide raises all mother f*ckin ships. 

Introducing...

The Membership

If you already have actor training in your tool box and are working on building up your community + want to make this working-actor-life last long term, you are in the right place

Let's break it down

Here's What You get

01

get it all

THE PORTAL

Home Base! This is the home of all our calendars, sessions, and library of extra goods - a downloadable actor dictionary, pre or post-audition meditations & stretches, a headshot guide, and instructional video, and so much more. We think it's worth the price of admission alone but...we're biased ;)

02

get it 24/7

THE SLACK

This is an app (phone or desktop) for constant communication with the TM community all across the world! A great place to source your fellow actor's opinions on literally anything.We have 14+ channels all about different topics so we got you covered.

ask all your questions

OFFICE HOURS

Weekly hour-long sessions via Zoom with Gabrielle & Sam to ask all your actor questions! No 'dumb questions' exist in this space and we ask everyone to sign an NDA so it is entirely confidential. They are recorded and saved in the Office Hours module for anyone who can't make it or wants to listen back.

04

get actor-time in your schedule

STUDY HALL

Twice a month 2-hour sessions via Zoom to co-work with your fellow actors. Need to write a hard email? Time to work sides with a partner? Or maybe you need to fold laundry and feel like an actor today. Set and achieve in our coworking sessions

05

work your body

ACTOR WORKOUTS 

Monthly guided workouts with Gabrielle to help set your intention for the month, come connect your mindset with your physical body (and sweat a little too). From yoga to meditation to HIIT work, you will find a new flow in yourself...did we mention her playlists?!

06

learn from others

GUEST SESSIONS

We don't believe any single person has "all the answers" so we will bring in special guests monthly who we trust to share their knowledge just for The Membership. Casting directors teaching script analysis, entertainment accountants sharing savings goals, and even a new accent or business class. We know some smart freakin people.

07

get audition feedback

CASTABILITY

So auditioning is our j-o-b. Shouldn't we be able to practice it with real turn-around times and feedback? Enter: Castability. The app designed to give you monthly scenes to submit to qualified & vetted casting directors and get real and usable feedback. We joined forces with this company to include them in your monthly membership.

08

and we are forgetting things

SO MUCH MORE

We literally don't have enough space for all of it. Monthly Creative Club for table reading scripts, quarterly Goal Setting calls to set achievable things into place, and Safe Spaces to feel our god damn feelings. And yes we are constantly adding more (what is wrong with us).

03

done. i am IN!

ok sure but

I AM A VERY BUSY MULTI-HYPHENATE...

01

ALL CALLS (EXCLUDING STUDY HALL AND SAFE SPACE) ARE RECORDED WITH NOTES AND POSTED TO THE PORTAL.

02

WE TAKE SURVEYS EVERY FEW MONTHS TO SEE WHAT TIME WE SHOULD DO MORE OFFERINGS

03

THE SLACK CHANNEL IS OPEN 24/7 X 365, SO YOU CAN GET INSTANT ACCESS TO MEMBERS ALL OVER, NO MATTER WHAT

04

THE MONTHLY SCHEDULE IS POSTED WEEKS IN ADVANCE SO YOU CAN MAKE IT FIT FOR YOU 

05

GABRIELLE, SAM, AND THE WHOLE TM TEAM ARE CONSTANTLY ADDING AND MOVING OFFERINGS BASED ON MEMBER FEEDBACK

HOW IT WORKS

JOIN THE WAITLIST 

We want to make sure we can take care of our current members, so when we reach capacity, future members get first dibs by joining the waitlist.

New spots open roughly on a quarterly basis, so anyone on the waitlist will get first dibs via email, so make sure you add sayhi@themembership.co to your contacts.

snag your spot asap

Openings in TM are open on a first come first serve basis, and as we are a small but mighty team, we only have a few at a time!

DON'T SPEND ANOTHER MONTH FEELING ALONE IN YOUR CAREER

COME FIND YOUR NEW COMMUNITY

REAL ACTORS WITH REAL LIVES:

Holly Skarbek Meyers from the Southwest:

i have never been in a group like this...

I've tried accountability groups within my acting class and it’s very touch and go especially when there’s only a few of us and we can’t make a meeting. Whereas with this, there are a ton of people who can pop in and out when they have time to offer help and advice 

andrea searby from the bay area:

Sam and Gabrielle are extremely adept at holding space for a lot of different people. 

This is colossal from a sense of safety. And it serves as a constant reminder that any time something in this pursuit makes me feel alone... it's actually probably quite relatable. It's also a wonderful thing to get to pour into other people.

lindsey Lauria from new jersey/nyc:

It feels more community-based and
long-term. 

I also love having Sam and Gabrielle as mentors, but also having everyone to ask questions to and get help from. I also feel more prepared because if I got a contract tomorrow I could write in the group or get help from Sam and Gabrielle. 

IF YOU HAVE SCROLLED THIS FAR, WE ARE PRETTY SURE YOU ARE OUR KIND OF PEOPLE...

Our biggest goal is to foster a group of happy, successful, and healthy actors (mentally and physically). So if you're the kind of person who does their research and reads entire website pages out of curiosity and your type-A detail oriented nature...we are so glad you found us.

You're in the right place.

RESPECT ATLANTA AND CAST MORE BLACK WOMEN IN LEADING ROLES WITH NATURAL HAIR

I spent a LOT of my time in this industry playing small. I was told "be grateful for what you get" or "Atlanta is a co-star only market".

imma tell you right now, I'm on a mission to prove people wrong. It took me a while to learn how to stand in my power in this industry, and tbh I still struggle when faced with the harsh reality the hollywood was never meant for ppl that look like me.

But I'll be damned if I allow another actor to play small and "just be grateful". Here to empower the fuck out of you.

from the midwest to LA, I have had a crash course in 'Hollywood'

i was so sick of actors showing the highlights....was no one confused like me?! what am I missing that everyone else has figured out?!

^^ that was my mental chorus for years before I started one broke actress and started to build my own online community by sharing the actual working actor life.

i don't want anyone to spend 10 years trying to be special or 'the most....' like i did. i want folks to share what they learn, who they are, and what they have to offer. and do it loud and proud. 

so i will continue shout from my west hollywood windows "this is a long messy journey but let's do it together and have a laugh while doing it."

AND OUr west coast bottle-blonde

and then in 2022 sam forced gabrielle to talk to her on the phone a lot...

Sam's side of the story...

We were TA-ing an acting class together on Zoom, so we never got the chance to really talk. I suggested one day we have a coffee chat and talk outside of class, I thought it would be fun to get to know each other. Within the first 20 minutes I was laughing so hard, we could not get off the phone. I think our call was almost two hours.

Before long, we were booking calls with each other weeks in advance (because we are both too productive for our own good) and we formed this cross country friendship. 

As my online community at the time grew, I knew the impact I really wanted to make needed to be in a team of some kind, not solo. And my mind kept telling me, you know who would be the perfect partner...

So in February of 2023 I proposed the idea to Gab via voice message and said "I think we can really make an impact, do something needed and different". 

A few months later  I flew to ATL and we were filing for an LLC, making cookies, and self taping each other while planning out exactly how we were gonna make that impact.

Gab's side:

Not so fast...
When I was introduced to Sam on Zoom I thought, "ugh here we go, another white girl from LA who's gonna annoy the shit outta me". I took that coffee call to get some things straight and try to be nice...but Sam was right, we couldn't get off the phone. Nothing has shocked me more than the friendship we grew from 2,000 miles apart.

That is, until I was building my mentorship programs and one night, I told my husband, "I would love to partner with Sam on something, I'm just not sure what." The next day she sent me that voice memo. We call that shit manifestation

We are so different in so many ways. We see the acting world so differently because have had very different experiences in it. But we align on all the right things: ethics, morals, values, and the Kardashians.

That is what makes TM special. It's a true mix of what we both needed earlier in our careers, as well as now.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does The Membership cost?

currently, The Membership is $115 per month, on a month-to-month basis. 

When am I able to join/rejoin The Membership?

our doors will open ~quarterly. TM is a month-to-month group so you are able to cancel at any time. however when leaving and rejoining, your price is not guaranteed to stay the same.

i have never used slack or any of the stuff you mention...

we have step by step videos to get you started so we will teach you everything you need to know! plus we're all actors, not tech-pros, we picked the easiest software for all of our sakes.

i'm a new actor, is this a good fit for me?

depends on where you are in your pursuit. if you already have foundational training and are looking for community and help in your next steps, then yes!

i don't live in a big city, would i still benefit?

for sure. we have actors in small markets all across the US. and since their creative community is really limited, they benefit a great deal.

if i can't make events, will they be recorded? i am very busy.

we know you are! so we built the portal just for you. all classes/sessions (apart from Safe Space and Study Hall) are added to your online portal to access at your convenience.

is everyone welcome?  

everyone. no matter your race, ethnicity, background, or gender identity. 

unless you're an asshole in which case, bye!
