VAS Founder Gina Nemo
The main story
Founder and Head Instructor of Ventura Actors Studio (VAS), Gina Nemo produced a television pilot in Los Angeles in
early 2017. Students from VAS Master and Pro classes all played featured and starring roles in the show. VAS is the
premiere school in Ventura for Television, Film and Audition techniques. We have classes for adults, teens and kids
in Ventura & Ojai. Currently we have students from Ventura, Ojai, Oxnard, Santa Barbara, North Hollywood, Camarillo,
Westlake and other surrounding areas. We also have actors from Los Angeles join our Master Class as guests when they
are in the area. Some of our students were traveling to Los Angeles for class and have now joined VAS. 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 2018. Some kids/teens VAS students
will also participate in one of these projects.
