in-STUDIO was created by Dane Northcutt during his tenure in Los Angeles. He desired for a place to train, specifically on the needs of Film and Television actors, without the unnecessary fluff and ego that come from traditional acting studios. After relocating to North Carolina, he wanted to specialize in Auditions and On-Camera techniques to better suit the immediate needs of Southeast Actors.
In 2013, he asked Drew Matthews to continue this vision. He agreed and took over in-STUDIO, evolving it into it's current vision.
