A true chameleon Mornell has successfully created a niche for herself in Hollywood. At one point she had been recurring simultaneously on “Judging Amy” and “Becker”, as well as booking a pilot, that is when Sara took a step back from the business to reevaluate. During that brief hiatus an agent asked her to coach one of his (her?) clients for an upcoming audition. The results were immediate, the client successfully booked the job and Sara’s love of coaching was born. It was also then when Sara realized that the key to successfully coaching actors was to continue to be a working actor herself. As a coach Sara has worked with actors such as Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Kenny Wormald (“Footloose”), Her clients also include veteran actors such as Rose Rollins (“The L Word”), and Ethan Embry (“Can’t Hardly Wait”) among hundreds of others. Sara now offers monthly multi-day audition intensives. These sessions are for those who seek that edge of distinction while in the room. Former students who have attended felt the work was an invaluable experience. Sara’s insights and coaching positively changed the way they approached auditioning and dramatically increased their booking rates.

We want to hear from you! TV analysis is always an important part of our jobs as actors but it can also be especially helpful to study jobs we didn’t book.

There can be so many reasons that had nothing to do with your work or choices that are why you didn’t book.

With that in mind, there’s always still something to gain from watching the final product with a critical eye.

Its been a while since we’ve had a proper #FunnyFriday post (thanks 2020) but we wanted to bring it back to celebrate our current @mornellstudiosproductions show Voter Paradise. Check it out if you haven’t already and in the meantime, thank you @drew.ater for bringing the flubs and the flex.

4 years ago Brad Michael Scott did not vote and it’s been tearing him apart ever since.

He is working hard to learn about voting and to get that perfect 8 pack.

Our lovable Voter Paradise personal trainer has big dreams of becoming a reality TV star and getting the love of his life Amber back. In that order.

The problem is he just can't seem to get the words out.

Sara! Forgive my jumping on here and posting out of turn perhaps...but...I must give you all my gratitude and thanks for all of your stealth advise and forceful love in aiding me when it comes to the most important part of my work: auditioning. I have booked my last 4 roles--in a row---recurring in: "Todays Special" for TBS (Jane Lynch, Michael Cera, Christopher Maloni and more) Recurring in "STUMPTOWN" for ABC and "This Is Us"; "Casting the Net", and to top the rest of it off: a national commercial. None of any of this would have been possible w/o your guidance. I mean, yes, I can act and go toe to toe with anyone BUT would I ever have the chance? Maybe, maybe not. I only know that in the room, on tape, I now, instead of being a fool who is really fine actor that rarely works, Im now a player that comes in blazing. Believe me as I say these words--I will have the career that I was born to have. Not only because of the talent I was given, but because I learned how to do the work of getting the work. And you, my dear love, are a major reason why. TY! TY! TY!
Thank you for the invite🙏💞☺
Casting 2 roles for THIS SUNDAY and NEXT WEEKEND: ETHNICALLY DIVERSE male 20-30s, NON-UNION and ETHNICALLY DIVERSE female 30-40s, NON-UNION. MUST BE AVAILABLE THIS SUNDAY AND NEXT WEEKEND. $150/day. We will need you for 3 hours MAX each day. Please DM me.
This is the best Weekend I have spent in many years. The investment in my "business" will pay dividends for years to come. Thank you Sara. The best way to honor you and all that you shared, is to put in practice the Mornell method.
I am pinned for SWAT
I took the 2-day intensive with Sara a couple of weekends ago and decided to tape an audition at the studio so I could just Mornell the hell out of this! I taped with Martha and it was great! She had such a beautiful way of calling me on my BS when it surfaced and made the process simple and smooth.
And so it begins.... #MornellMethod #FEMALEDIRECTOR
Sara your master class last Thursday was great !! Now I'm on the wait list for your atlanta intensive !!
