WHO WE ARE
In early 2014, Chicago Actor, Improviser and Comedian Keary and Florida-based Actor, Improvisor and Writer Rebecca were producing a film in Atlanta. When faced with escalating location and studio costs, Rebecca suggested that they move the production to her hometown of Jacksonville. This decision saved the production, but created a new and unexpected difficulty; finding adequately trained talent to bring their script to life. They decided to move forward with casting hoping that if they could just find hard-working and dedicated people, they could still complete the film as planned. It took some patience and coaching, but their gamble paid off and the film was completed! While reflecting on their experiences and the advantages of working in Jacksonville (lower production costs and a short drive to all of the major Television and Film production hubs in the South East’s now booming market), their next step was a no-brainer. Create a studio where students can pursue their performing arts passions in acting, comedy, improv, and screenwriting and start creating some amazing productions right here in Jacksonville! Jacksonville is full of hardworking, dedicated, talented and passionate people; all they need is the right professional training. From this, Creative Veins Performing Arts Studio was born. As working, agency-represented professionals, we know that being “good enough” isn’t good enough. We’re passionate about being the best and helping others do the same; not just in Jacksonville, but everywhere. Huge Hollywood films, hit television shows, big-brand commercials, and world-class comedy are happening all around us and it should be happening in our city, too! We believe Jacksonville is a world-class city filled with world-class talent; they just don’t know it yet. We know it because we’ve seen it firsthand and continue to see it in each new class and production. Our approach is simple; elevate the standard by offering competitive training at the highest professional level. If you’ve been looking for a place to pursue your passion for acting, improv, stand-up comedy or screenwriting, if you want to learn from working professionals who are on a mission to elevate the performing arts, if you are ready to work hard and push yourself to be the very best you can be, then welcome home!
