Earl Nanhu began his career as an Actor and has appeared in many Film and Stage productions before moving on to opening up his own acting studio-EVN Film & Television Studios where he has been teaching since 1989. Recognizing a problem very early on about Actors being Dry, Cerebral and too Intellectual, Earl evolved his own style of teaching, a Spiritual Approach to the Craft of Acting, that brings a more grounded and organic presence to the actors’ craft. A unique blend of Meditation and Art which has successfully enabled many of his students to land Leads and major roles in Feature Films, TV Series, Movies of the Week, Commercials, etc.
Earl is experienced in many areas of the Acting World. Besides teaching at EVN Studios he has worked as an Onset Acting Coach, Agent/Manager, Director, Assistant Director, Casting Director, and Casting Associate on numerous productions, from Feature Films to Television Series and Commercials. He is also the President of the Production company that he founded-‘LunarScape Productions Inc.’ under which he has produced and directed the Feature Film, ‘Love Guns & Christmas.”
In-between teaching his classes in Toronto and Los Angeles, Earl is continuously working on various productions as Writer/Director/Producer and is currently working on his upcoming book on acting titled ‘Acting ~ A Meditative Path.’ Having had the opportunity to work in so many different capacities allows Earl to bring to his students a solid and practical approach to the Art and Craft of Acting.
