She loves actors, good stories, and learning. Her private classes function by word of mouth and referrals. Baz Luhrmann - "All of Heidi Marshall's work has led me to see that she is a Director of first rate talent and ability." ACTOR REVIEWS "Your class was instrumental in helping me develop the techniques that allowed me to go into that audition room 4 different times and finally land the role of Richie. I tell all my actor friends about your class, I can't rave enough about it." - Raul Castillo HBO Series Looking I know what I'm doing in the theater, I know when it's working and when it's not. I can't tell with camera. I guess it's just going to take time and constant working. In all, I'm still trying to get out of the mode of doing it right, but doing it me. Because no one can be me and when I let myself just be me, I think it's a pretty special thing. Thanks for listening. Working it out. - Bjorn Dupaty http://www.bjorndupaty.com/ Amazon Series ALPHA HOUSE “Very seldom in life are things ever as promised. My audition, my first ever without singing, was as if I had done a dozen prior to. Your class presented the geography of the room as it actually was. You gave me the mind-set that allowed me to hold to the points I needed and ignore the ones I did not need. I was, I guess we can assume, successful.” [He booked HBO on his first audition!] - Gary Simpson www.garysimpsonbaritone.com HBO Series The Knick In so many ways!!! I feel like I am so much more knowledgeable about the whole process and feel like I am more in control of my audition, "tai-chi-ing the room" And picking three adjectives in the breakdown and using it in specific moments is a godsend! Thank you!!” -Tal Yardeni “"I knew my lines and beats, and I told myself "have fun!" And ya know what? I even surprised myself! I focused on my reader and listened and they all laughed through the entire take. Then the director gave me an adjustment and I did it again (AND I even asked questions!) and they laughed AGAIN all the way through it!!! Thank you for all that you impart in me/us and for your Unbelievable Positivity!! God bless you. I had so much fun I was floating on air afterward." - Peter Davenport http://www.peter-davenport.com/ “[what shifted most about acting on camera] confidence with being real, ugly, messy. swinging between opposing emotions, making bigger choices! less self consciousness!” - Natalie Roy www.natalieroy.com I can't say Thank you enough for being one of the best if not THE BEST teacher in town, I'm so grateful to have met you and to have the opportunity to explore my craft deeper in such a positive environment! - Ydaiber Orozco www.Ydaiber.com "You just really got me thinking. So thank you for the lessons both oncamera and off. You've taught me a lot already and I look forward to more. I think you're one special lady.” - Jessica Walker “For me there was just so much reminding going on. The stuff that we may take for granted and just assume it's going to work for us always but really, it will never if you don't constantly work at it and keep it fresh... I.e. Listening, connecting, letting the work go and just being present. I'm learning to be still and simple. It's hard for me! But I was shocked at what happened when I just sat and allowed things to happen. It all just showed up and felt truthful and alive. I can't wait to continue exploring the intimacy that is acting on camera!” - Jeff Riberdy www.jeffriberdyactor.com I just want to thank you! I had an audition this morning that I've been dreading for a number if reasons but I went in an applied your audition tips and I felt great! For the first time, ever, I really allowed myself time to think the thoughts and let the scene breathe. I'm so thrilled that I decided to take your class. It's already paying off. Can't wait to learn more. - MacKenzie Meehan www.mackenziemeehan.com The Wolf On Wall Street “I'm really loving all that's happening in class. Thank you for your continuous encouragement and inspiration.” - Jessica Kahler http://jessicakahler.com/ "Tuesday was really special, I walked away with such a sense of self and power as a performer unlike ever before. Can't wait to dive deeper." - Wes Mason www.wesmasonstage.com "Can't be more excited and thankful for your class, your spirit, your mentoring!!!! I would say you're one of the few truly supporting, honest, authentic amazing artists out there right now. You are doing magic for us, keep it up!!!!" - Emma Ramos http://www.emmaramos.com/ Your class is just what I needed. You have such a wonderful, positive and inspiring way of helping others. Thank you very very very much for choosing to help us actors do what we love and do it well! I love you! – Breece Wilson http://breecewilson.com/ "Thank you so much for all of your help and incredible insight. I have learned so much from you these past couple of months. I feel so much more confident in auditions situations-- on or off camera. And I feel like I have a deeper understanding of myself as an actor-- my unique essence, and a deeper appreciation of it. As well as how to keep it light! :)" - Myra Thibault http://www.myrathibault.com ""I have been reflecting on the class all week and whenever i think about it i feel calm. Just calm about my work and calm about the future and that is rare for me. Your class really is a safe space to work in and i've not felt that before. Thank you again so much for a truly unique and amazingly fun class! I really do feel very changed as an actor. " - Katie Honaker www.KatieHonaker.com "It can be very hard, as one gets older, to dig into what blocks you- impeding your work, your flow, your joy, etc- and I am deeply grateful to you for giving me a safe space in which I can reveal those things so I can exorcise it and be in my bliss again!" - Darius DeHaas http://www.dariusdehaas.com/ "Honesty. You showed me how to be honest in this business, THE ARTS and myself . When I came into your class I was lost. I had auditioned like a mad man. I had done seminars and met with casting directors and agents. I produced web shows with people that I didn't see eye to eye with on the art. So you make me think about being Honest about my Type, Look and my Abilities. I have been auditioning for a long time and I hate being type casted. Yeah, I know they want to type you because you look a certain way. But my heart and guts tell me that it doesn't have to be that way. I don't have to play a cabbie or tough guy or a terrorist or the funny Indian guy. (I'm not Indian BTW, lol.) So I came back to being Honest. When I play a character, I have to be totally honest in those moments. But then I'm not honest with my self when the camera stops or when the lights black out on stage... So I'm not a writer or director or have any formal training, but who needs a method when you have passion? Thanks, Heidi. You saved me big time...I almost quit 2 months prior and thanks for giving back to the Arts ..to receive things you must first give back..." - Zeshan Bhatti “Your eye and focus and ability to dissect talent issues... amazing.” – Lisa Tharps www.LisaTharps.com "I have been doing this since I was 5 years old, taken a million acting classes and yours was the only one that I actually felt truly helped me as a blocked artist." - Lauren Toub www.LaurenToub.com "I seriously cannot thank you enough for the gift of working with you. These classes and the homework have been a mind-blowing experience. Thank you for helping me break through walls! I feel like The Hulk!" Laura Daniel "Today was the first audition where I really felt like I took back the power in the room, and thus no matter what happens, I feel really great about what I did! And more confident in my abilities for next time. Do I think it was the best work I've done in an audition? No, definitely not, but it was definitely the best overall audition experience I've had in a looong, looong time, or maybe ever. And now I feel like I can focus more on the prep for the actual work - I know, craaaazy idea- instead of freaking out about going into the room. All thanks to techniques you've shared with us. I just had to share that with you. Thank you!!" - Faith Aronowitz http://www.faitharonowitz.com/ "I loved your class and it really did help to boost my confidence ( as well as my skills) as I head back out to the wilds of LA." - Mia Baron "I'd love for you to know that I still apply your audition technique and find it invaluable. In fact I just booked a recurring role on Boardwalk Empire season 3 " - Katy Wright-Meade http://katywrightmead.com HBO’s Boardwalk Empire "It was really nice to get to know you again after all these years, and I do feel that what I learned in the class has fundamentally changed how I audition on camera. No small thing!" - Dashiell Eaves http://www.dashielleaves.com "[The agent] said, "Yep. I can tell Ana Maria's been working with Heidi Marshall"." - Ana Maria Jomoloca “I remember one of our classes where you talked of women and make-up and how going without make-up can be a powerful tool that we should get comfortable using. So, I used it! Of course once I got to the audition and saw all the "hot mamas" I began the doubting game! Ah, the mind, such a beautiful dangerous weapon we use to torture ourselves!! In any case Heidi, your classes have taught me to think more expansively about the audition/casting/role-making process; in the past I never would have gone for an "older" role or gone without make-up & such - ultimately, these are the self-imposed boundaries that limit us. And even though I didn't think I got the part, I wasn't sad about it because I came in fully prepared. Actually getting the part was almost beyond comprehension! Wouldn't you know, I got the call from the director giving me the role!” -Shannon Conley “Thank you for the wonderful tips you gave us. Since your class I've been booking student films, taking more classes, and growing as an actor. I'm trying to take my acting to the next level.” – Erin Singleton “I was inspired by all of the direction and exercises you provided during class. It brought to light a number of different areas that I had not ever been exposed to. In essence I now have more tools in my box because of your class.” -Mia Zifkin "I had a good casting session with several indie film casting directors at Network event. I have to say, that they loved the picture you suggested as an Indie shot, overall the scene was a big hit, and it was wonderful to be able to direct them to my website to see my reel for other work. Thanks for pushing for those things to come together. " - Eric Chase http://www.ericdchase.com/ I loved your class and it really did help to boost my confidence ( as well as my skills) as I head back out to the wilds of LA. - Mia Baron

Yes!! When you get to stretch your acting wings and play against “type” (villains or saints?) it’s soooo fun to watch. Loved watching your power-hungry villain unfold @dancinvida !!!

Gabriella had three qualities she was working on: scheming, poised, selfish. Omg sooo much fun. You can see them in play even in her still photo!

You all act, I’m betting, because you ❤️ being creative! Interpreting characters! Trying new things! Stay in touch with that creative play in every single audition. Every single role. Don’t limit yourself or let others limit you. Creatively inspire everyone with your nuances that are already in abundance within you.

As we huddle, filled with many emotions, let's reflect on a beautiful thought:

We are creators of change.

We, each one of us, can create the change we want to see in the world.

Whatever the outcome of this election, the change is in our hands. It doesn't start and stop with casting a vote. It extends into our daily being and action.

We are also Creators of Change as artists.

As artists, we can inspire change with our words that we write, our images that we create, our dialogue that we speak, and our mediums that we work in.

Me, I choose film and theater and all things acting to create the change I want to see in the world.

How do you express and encourage the change that you want to see in the world?

Artists create change with all the incredible things that artists make and put out into the world for others to see and experience. You have so much power in your hands!

I look forward to what you will create... long into our futures.

Thank you for voting.

And, thank you for creating art.

Do. Not. Stop.

Slate magic🌟 Few actors take me seriously when I stress the IMPORTANCE of your slates. It’s the moment when you get to show who you are as a playful or inspired or down to earth or wacky HUMAN. Be human. Let folks know you’re a fully fleshed multi-dimensional human. STOP DOING ROBOTIC SLATES. 🤖 You’re a cool, awesome person that we want to meet.

There’s so many incredible performances on screen and stages. But a few stick with us over our lifetimes.

Now that most of us have seen soooo much film and TV in our lifetimes, especially in quarantine!!, that list must be long!

Who sticks with you?
Which actors do you deeply admire and aspire to do similar great work?
I don’t mean who do you want to be like and have their career. Because you are only like yourself and your career is yours to create. I mean, simply, which actors do you just admire and look forward to always seeing their work? And they inspire you to pursue your dream and deepen your craft? Who?

⭐️Here’s one that I’ve loved since childhood. Sissy Spacek. Her style, her authenticity, her heart, her passion, her fierceness, her types of roles, her Southernness... it just connected to me.

And then one day I stopped in my tracks with a racing heart. In my hometown in Virginia I saw Sissy. My teen girl heart stopped. I couldn’t believe it. She was using the pay phone at the Cloverleaf Mall. I can still visualize the whole moment. I was sooooo in awe. 💯Star struck.

I didn’t say a word to Ms.Spacek. I was a quiet teenager and just timidly tiptoed away. And then I went home and watched her movies again on VCR. :)

I can’t wait til I get to direct a film starring Sissy Spacek.
#sissyspacek #rolemodel #actress #southern #fangirling

Which actors inspire you to be an actor? ✨⚡️💫

What if I told you that you’ll move further in your own career by supporting other actors? Would that change what you do today?

#community

No actor is an island. Do not isolate. That’s an impossible way to be an actor in the world. Create partnerships to expand your connections. Create artist covens to emotionally support each other. Create art together, secretly, publicly, online, in emails, on google docs. Gather. Be there for each other. Give out more than you receive. You’ll discover how you really really really care about art. When it’s not only about you.

Yesterday I spoke with some fabulous young actors. Starting out. And there’s one message I wanted them to get more than anything else. You are in a community. Get each other’s backs. (Very different than what I was erroneously taught at conservatory.) Be a whole artist by integrating with others. It’s a beautiful gift that you can offer. 💜

What do you already do, or will you do, to support fellow actors?

08/14/2020

It’s a long haul. Through pandemic and through the career of being an artist. I dip often. I rise. I dip again. I rise again. A cycle that’s almost predictable. But honestly it’s been like this my ENTIRE career. Call it being a moody artist if you want. 😎 But I call it the JOURNEY. That’s how I feel better about it. 🙃 😍

The journey. It’s a ride. For a lifetime.

I share this so you know that this wild up and down ride (pandemic or no pandemic) is shared by many.

Ok. So let’s get to the work of staying on the journey. How do we do that? How do you do it?

What do you do for inspiration?
What inspires you?

Tell me! Tell our community! Let’s share the inspirations!

Inspired!! 🙏 for friends showing up for my studio alumni community!

In a Studio Pop-Up for Alumni, dear Casting Director Tiffany Little Canfield spoke with us about the state of the biz right now. I think one of the biggest, most calming things for many to hear her say was “NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN THRU THIS BEFORE. NO ONE... NO ONE... KNOWS HOW TO DO THIS.”

So, friends, do keep this in mind as all of us navigate the unpredictability of this biz and moment in time. No one has had to manage this before.
Everyone at all levels is trying to figure it out too.

Meanwhile....quite simply, at the very least, do what you can to keep yourself inspired - study, reading, watching, classes, gather friends for readings on zoom, painting, writing, what else ya got in ya?

💯I agree!!!

I’m a broken record about this but it’s so true: Remember, we’re artists for the longgggg haul. Let’s always be evolving. Just because you may not be acting today, doesn’t mean you won’t be acting tomorrow. Or next year. Or ten years from now.

The biz willllll return. It’s actually still in motion. But don’t worry - you’re not behind or missing out. You and the biz will sync up. All in good time. At the right time. Trust.

Thank you again, Tiffany @tlcnyc for sharing your wisdom and positivity and honesty with us. 💕💞 @ Heidi Marshall Studio - Actors On Camera

07/26/2020

I want to remind you, dear Actors, that you’re more in charge than you think you are. Stand up for your vision in the roles you do. Stand up for your vision by being 100% committed to your ideas. Your commitment shows the filmmakers the way forward. YOUR vision feeds them. Guides them.

I know this to be so deeply true because since I’m also a Director I know how heavily influenced I am by what the actor brings to the table. I’m so susceptible to your talents, nuances, style, all of it! You have me in your palm!

YOU ARE A CREATOR.

Go forth, my friends, and dare to create in your auditions, projects you create, conversations you provoke with colleagues.
Create create create.
💜💕💜💕💜💕🎬

Got some self-tape Bloopers? I knowwww you do. Look for any creative ways to use those scraps! I love the ingenuity of alumna @tristanrosegillia - she complied this bloopers clip from our studio and online classes. Throw music on it and you’ve just created a reel!:)

Don’t hold back from sharing your work. Don’t hold back from showing your creative play. Don’t. Hold. Back. Your. Artistry.

Alumni! Send me more studio bloopers! [all clips from the studio please]

I’m actually wondering if the on camera acting work is getting BETTER in online classes. It is really helping bring total awareness to that SCREEN. To the camera limitations. To the actor POSSIBILITIES.

I dunno.... but I’m seeing some knock it outta the ballpark takes in class. 🤔

MEET my recent Genre Class Alumni.

As the industry gets rolling, don’t forget to meet NEW (TO YOU) TALENT that you’ve never had time to audition before!

MEET THEM. FOLLOW THEIR IGs.

Many of these actors tagged here, I’ve also had the privilege to work with for years. Many are fresh to me, excitingly fresh. Sometimes (I hide it in class) but I’m moved to tears by how I see the actor start to pop. To unfold their confidence wings. To fly with the material. To be free to play. I just wanna cry from JOY at witnessing such a thing.

If you’re kind and patient to your actors, you’ll be AMAZED at what they do. (I hope directors, CDs, and anyone hiring actors reads this.) Step back a bit when they work. Trust them.

#amplify the actor by supporting the actor.

Oh. And #hirethem and trust they WILL deliver big time.
Oh. And #vote like your life depends on it. #publicpsa

Genre flip! Let’s flip it like #awkwafina

I'm an Awkwafina fan.

I suspect Awkwafina can probably do anything. Two of my faves: I loved how she burst off the screen in Crazy Rich Asians and then she totally flipped genres and captured a beautiful, mostly silent, interior life in The Farewell.

She's not only bold in her choices of material that she performs, but she's also a creative chameleon and can transform appropriately to each genre. She's so playful and knows how to highlight her range to match the genre.

How adept at genre flipping are you?

There's sooooo many genres now (scroll Netflix and it's astonishing!).

There are now many more opportunities for actors to stretch their talents and play in different genres.

In fact, it's become crucial for an actor to be able to adapt to the various nuances to book these gigs. It really makes the difference to the creative team if they can "see" you in the tone of their imagined world.

Rise up, actors. YOU have to be the change you want to see. Find your voice. Little actions count. I’m in this too and also evaluating and reevaluating everything I knew and know about this biz. What am I going to fight for? To stand up for? As an artist. Teacher. Director. Human.

Let’s find our actions. Little and big ways. They all count.

Thanks for teaching me, my students. @toccarracash

@oneononenyc_la, your recent tone deaf response to black artists speaks volumes about how the work (or lack thereof) that you claim you’re doing. It’s not enough to give lip service about solidarity with the black community when you refuse to do the deep, internal shifts in your organization that real change requires. I’ve noticed for a long time now the major lack of diversity in those you hire in the industry to teach your classes and seminars here in NYC. Even the staff is greatly lacking in diversity. So until you all do the actual work of regarding your black talent, I’m out.✌🏽 #DoBetter #blacklivesmatter #blackartistsmatter #blackcastingmatters

You gave me the mind-set that allowed me to hold to the points I needed and ignore the ones I did not need. I was, I guess we can assume, successful.” [He booked HBO on his first audition!] - Gary Simpson www.garysimpsonbaritone.com HBO Series The Knick In so many ways!!! I feel like I am so much more knowledgeable about the whole process and feel like I am more in control of my audition, "tai-chi-ing the room" And picking three adjectives in the breakdown and using it in specific moments is a godsend! Thank you!!” -Tal Yardeni “"I knew my lines and beats, and I told myself "have fun!" And ya know what? I even surprised myself! I focused on my reader and listened and they all laughed through the entire take. Then the director gave me an adjustment and I did it again (AND I even asked questions!) and they laughed AGAIN all the way through it!!! Thank you for all that you impart in me/us and for your Unbelievable Positivity!! God bless you. I had so much fun I was floating on air afterward." - Peter Davenport http://www.peter-davenport.com/ “[what shifted most about acting on camera] confidence with being real, ugly, messy. swinging between opposing emotions, making bigger choices! less self consciousness!” - Natalie Roy www.natalieroy.com I can't say Thank you enough for being one of the best if not THE BEST teacher in town, I'm so grateful to have met you and to have the opportunity to explore my craft deeper in such a positive environment! - Ydaiber Orozco www.Ydaiber.com "You just really got me thinking. So thank you for the lessons both oncamera and off. You've taught me a lot already and I look forward to more. I think you're one special lady.” - Jessica Walker “For me there was just so much reminding going on. The stuff that we may take for granted and just assume it's going to work for us always but really, it will never if you don't constantly work at it and keep it fresh... I.e. Listening, connecting, letting the work go and just being present. I'm learning to be still and simple. It's hard for me! But I was shocked at what happened when I just sat and allowed things to happen. It all just showed up and felt truthful and alive. I can't wait to continue exploring the intimacy that is acting on camera!” - Jeff Riberdy www.jeffriberdyactor.com I just want to thank you! I had an audition this morning that I've been dreading for a number if reasons but I went in an applied your audition tips and I felt great! For the first time, ever, I really allowed myself time to think the thoughts and let the scene breathe. I'm so thrilled that I decided to take your class. It's already paying off. Can't wait to learn more. - MacKenzie Meehan www.mackenziemeehan.com The Wolf On Wall Street “I'm really loving all that's happening in class. Thank you for your continuous encouragement and inspiration.” - Jessica Kahler http://jessicakahler.com/ "Tuesday was really special, I walked away with such a sense of self and power as a performer unlike ever before. Can't wait to dive deeper." - Wes Mason www.wesmasonstage.com "Can't be more excited and thankful for your class, your spirit, your mentoring!!!! I would say you're one of the few truly supporting, honest, authentic amazing artists out there right now. You are doing magic for us, keep it up!!!!" - Emma Ramos http://www.emmaramos.com/ Your class is just what I needed. You have such a wonderful, positive and inspiring way of helping others. Thank you very very very much for choosing to help us actors do what we love and do it well! I love you! – Breece Wilson http://breecewilson.com/ "Thank you so much for all of your help and incredible insight. I have learned so much from you these past couple of months. I feel so much more confident in auditions situations-- on or off camera. And I feel like I have a deeper understanding of myself as an actor-- my unique essence, and a deeper appreciation of it. As well as how to keep it light! :)" - Myra Thibault http://www.myrathibault.com ""I have been reflecting on the class all week and whenever i think about it i feel calm. Just calm about my work and calm about the future and that is rare for me. Your class really is a safe space to work in and i've not felt that before. Thank you again so much for a truly unique and amazingly fun class! I really do feel very changed as an actor. " - Katie Honaker www.KatieHonaker.com "It can be very hard, as one gets older, to dig into what blocks you- impeding your work, your flow, your joy, etc- and I am deeply grateful to you for giving me a safe space in which I can reveal those things so I can exorcise it and be in my bliss again!" - Darius DeHaas http://www.dariusdehaas.com/ "Honesty. You showed me how to be honest in this business, THE ARTS and myself . When I came into your class I was lost. I had auditioned like a mad man. I had done seminars and met with casting directors and agents. I produced web shows with people that I didn't see eye to eye with on the art. So you make me think about being Honest about my Type, Look and my Abilities. I have been auditioning for a long time and I hate being type casted. Yeah, I know they want to type you because you look a certain way. But my heart and guts tell me that it doesn't have to be that way. I don't have to play a cabbie or tough guy or a terrorist or the funny Indian guy. (I'm not Indian BTW, lol.) So I came back to being Honest. When I play a character, I have to be totally honest in those moments. But then I'm not honest with my self when the camera stops or when the lights black out on stage... So I'm not a writer or director or have any formal training, but who needs a method when you have passion? Thanks, Heidi. You saved me big time...I almost quit 2 months prior and thanks for giving back to the Arts ..to receive things you must first give back..." - Zeshan Bhatti “Your eye and focus and ability to dissect talent issues... amazing.” – Lisa Tharps www.LisaTharps.com "I have been doing this since I was 5 years old, taken a million acting classes and yours was the only one that I actually felt truly helped me as a blocked artist." - Lauren Toub www.LaurenToub.com "I seriously cannot thank you enough for the gift of working with you. These classes and the homework have been a mind-blowing experience. Thank you for helping me break through walls! I feel like The Hulk!" Laura Daniel "Today was the first audition where I really felt like I took back the power in the room, and thus no matter what happens, I feel really great about what I did! And more confident in my abilities for next time. Do I think it was the best work I've done in an audition? No, definitely not, but it was definitely the best overall audition experience I've had in a looong, looong time, or maybe ever. And now I feel like I can focus more on the prep for the actual work - I know, craaaazy idea- instead of freaking out about going into the room. All thanks to techniques you've shared with us. I just had to share that with you. Thank you!!" - Faith Aronowitz http://www.faitharonowitz.com/ "I loved your class and it really did help to boost my confidence ( as well as my skills) as I head back out to the wilds of LA." - Mia Baron "I'd love for you to know that I still apply your audition technique and find it invaluable. In fact I just booked a recurring role on Boardwalk Empire season 3 " - Katy Wright-Meade http://katywrightmead.com HBO’s Boardwalk Empire "It was really nice to get to know you again after all these years, and I do feel that what I learned in the class has fundamentally changed how I audition on camera. No small thing!" - Dashiell Eaves http://www.dashielleaves.com "[The agent] said, "Yep. I can tell Ana Maria's been working with Heidi Marshall"." - Ana Maria Jomoloca “I remember one of our classes where you talked of women and make-up and how going without make-up can be a powerful tool that we should get comfortable using. So, I used it! Of course once I got to the audition and saw all the "hot mamas" I began the doubting game! Ah, the mind, such a beautiful dangerous weapon we use to torture ourselves!! In any case Heidi, your classes have taught me to think more expansively about the audition/casting/role-making process; in the past I never would have gone for an "older" role or gone without make-up & such - ultimately, these are the self-imposed boundaries that limit us. And even though I didn't think I got the part, I wasn't sad about it because I came in fully prepared. Actually getting the part was almost beyond comprehension! Wouldn't you know, I got the call from the director giving me the role!” -Shannon Conley “Thank you for the wonderful tips you gave us. Since your class I've been booking student films, taking more classes, and growing as an actor. I'm trying to take my acting to the next level.” – Erin Singleton “I was inspired by all of the direction and exercises you provided during class. It brought to light a number of different areas that I had not ever been exposed to. In essence I now have more tools in my box because of your class.” -Mia Zifkin "I had a good casting session with several indie film casting directors at Network event. I have to say, that they loved the picture you suggested as an Indie shot, overall the scene was a big hit, and it was wonderful to be able to direct them to my website to see my reel for other work. Thanks for pushing for those things to come together.
