Sharing this joy #daymade
My amazing weekly client @Lauren Turner is growing by leaps and bounds! We are tackling everything from Commercials to Film/TV to musicals to classical text. it's a blast!
Here is some wonderful feedback after filming her last self tape we worked on together on Zoom. Grateful she is allowing me to share this! Creative Combustion Acting Studio and Joshua Finkel could not be proud of you!

"So proud of me!!! This audition really showed me a lot about myself. I can be more natural and relax and don't have to "try"
To act or deliver the message, it's all just there. HUGE DISCOVERIES with this tape. And excited to bring what I learned here to my acting and musicals. Wow. I'm blown away with the story telling here 🎉So pumped and motivated to tackle the next piece. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your coaching on this! The outcome was such a difference than what I'm used to turning in or showing in the room. #Ecstatic! ❤️❤️❤️🙏🎭 Another self tape came through so I will send the sides and breakdown before the end of the week. Ty ty ty so much! Grateful to have you help me grow!!! "

Celebrating 4th of July with Liberace By Greg Schreiner — Palos Verdes Pulse

Happy 4th of July week from @Hollywood Revisited and @Greg Schreiner

As July is a month for patriotic remembrance, what better costume to revisit than this spectacular one worn by Liberace. This is one of Liberace’s best known costumes dating from 1971. Liberace wrote of its creation: “I was in San Francisco, when I was contacted by a fellow from Poland…he said...

If you care about our democracy and believe that everyone should have an equal right to vote, we need your voice—and we need it right now. Over the past few months, there’s been a movement in state legislatures all across the country to pass laws that make it harder for people to cast a ballot. That means we’ve got to pass the For the People Act before it’s too late. This bill is one of our best chances to stop these voter suppression efforts at the state level and enact national voting standards to ensure all of us have a say in our future—whether that’s issues like pandemic relief, criminal justice, immigration, healthcare, education, or anything else.

Together we can promote early voting, expand automatic voter registration, end gerrymandering, and strengthen everyone’s right to vote. So I hope you’ll call your senators right now and tell them to support the #ForThePeopleAct. Tag three friends to join you in calling their senators today: weall.vote/forthepeople
