Ojai Acting is a subsidiary of Ventura Actors Studio (VAS). Students at both schools have acted in Grey’s Anatomy, National Commercials, network and internet television series, music brands, music videos, independent films, Netflix shows, CW Network, Hallmark films & More! We are currently expanding our film division VAS STUDIOS and have already finished a few films with award-winning filmmakers. Some students at Ojai Acting have participated in our first few films. Our film DUSTSLICKER has won many awards in Los Angeles, England and Italy. It has also won a global award from the Accolade Global Film Competition.

Our on-camera audition classes for acting are in high demand and they are taught by award-winning actress and filmmaker, Gina Nemo. We prepare our students (all levels including professional working actors who are actively auditioning in LA) for their auditions and help with their submissions to casting (in person and on-line submissions). We also submit our students to local projects (Santa Barbara to Los Angeles and in between) through our casting subsidiary, 805Casting.

Founder and Head Instructor of Ojai Acting & Ventura Actors Studio, Gina Nemo is an award-winning actress & filmmaker. Students from her Master and teen classes have all played featured and starring roles in TV pilots, comedy shows, commercials and films.

Our parent school VAS is the premiere school for acting in Ventura. We teach our students Television, Film and Audition techniques that have proven results. Currently we have students from Ventura, Ojai, Oxnard, Santa Barbara, North Hollywood, Santa Paula, Camarillo, Westlake and other surrounding areas. We also have guest actors from Los Angeles join our Master Class or private classes as guests when they are in the area.

Some of our students were traveling to Los Angeles for class and have now joined VAS and are landing parts weekly (Locally, in Los Angeles and out of state).

Ojai Acting & Ventura Actors Studio (VAS) nurtures and encourages students to succeed in television and film and also helps guide each and every student towards their industry goals.

Nemo is currently developing other film projects that will shoot next year starring quite a few of her students. Shoot dates will be announced in early 2021.
