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

Today in our Studio Pop-Up (with awesome Guest Ana Ortiz) we invited the young talented artists of Developing Artists to join us! And their questions and intense listening were amazing! We loved having the next generation with us today. They are a future that we can be proud of - I can’t wait to see where they guide us in these next moments of history. #amplifyteenvoices
OMG we’ve got lotsa amplifying to do.

I’m loving the sentimental throwbacks alumni are posting from the days in the Studio. Someday, have hope💘, we will all be working in person again soon. On sets. In studio. On stages. Til then, remember you’re an actor. Even when not working.💡 Being an actor is as much BELIEF as it is DOING. Believe in your talents. Trust and it will thrive.

With filming on pause, I know this page has moved a little more toward my dance life. I’m obviously missing acting these days, so I thought I’d post a throwback class video from @heidimarshallstudio .
.
The challenge for that class was to tackle a scene with exposition... the more jargon, the better. I really put myself to the test that week... not only was this basically one long monologue of a scene from the brilliant film Network, but it was full of jargon and numbers. It definitely put my memorization skills to the test! I was pretty proud of how this scene turned out. Plus... how fun is it to play such an ambitious and determined character?!

Do you know that there is soooo much more freedom and self-expression in your self-tapes than you're maximizing?

It's true.

Most actors are playing so safe in their self-tapes, trying to abide by all the self-tape "rules" that are suddenly popping up everywhere, and the result is... an audition that looks like everyone else's.

▶️‼️Use that frame, live inside the frame, play inside the frame, breathe life into your character in that rigid little frame.

Work the camera the way you work a selfie! It's much more fun than you’re probably making it! This 3-week online class with Athena guides you towards using the camera to your advantage, folks. Learn physicality for the camera, work the beats, bring the internal monologue to life, and practice self-tape techniques.

I love seeing the simple creativity of #actorsinquarantine. 💜💘💜

Now. I have a funny story memory that Priscilla’s image reminds me of.

Back in college I took a lighting design class in my theater directing program. There was an assignment to design a little house model with lighting that evokes specific moods. Ie. Romantic sunset. So I lit it. It looked something like Priscilla’s lighting. I loved it. I thought it was beautiful. And I got the WORST grade ever in all my theater classes. I was humiliated. I failed? What??? The teacher said i didn’t do the assignment- it didn’t look realistic. Whatttt??? Who said it had to be “realistic”?? Shocked. Angry. Mainly, I felt stamped on for my creativity! It was a major blow to my creative self-expression.

It was like when a child draws a picture for someone and they ball up. 😢

So my takeaway to this day is EXPRESS YOURSELF. FORGET ABOUT TRYING TO GET “GOOD GRADES” AND BE PERFECT. EXPRESS YOURSELF COLORFULLY 🌈💜🧡💛❤️💚💙.

Be the artiste that you know you are! (See what an expressive creation can trigger in another person? Thank you, @prismarie !)

Don’t let others tell you if your art is worthy. Just create. Be you. Be art. (And I’ll heed that for myself too!)

Yes to making self tapes happen in quarantine! There’s all kinds of magic to be created! Including tripods from stacks of books. Get those eyeliner right y’all! LOVE THE WORK I’m seeing in the self-tape classes. Your muscles are working. It doesn’t matter what the end goal is right now. Who the heck knows when ANYONE is filming. No one no one no one knows. Yet. So use this time to play and muck it up and take chances and be creative in your self tapes or self tape practices. Or, if you’re not feelin it, just sit back and take a break bc the biz will be here again and trust that you’ll rejuvenate! Til then, if inspired, prop up those books and do some slates or eyeline tests. LOVE TO ACTORS WHO ARE KEEPIN IT REAL!

Supporting, sharing and lifting each other up as artists and creators is more important now than ever. Heidi Miami Marshall has asked her alumni to share excerpts from the good ole days of working in the studio. All to remind the world that after all this chaos settles down, the artist, whoever you are, will still be standing in the end. So please enjoy excerpts from a scene from the movie Sweet Home Alabama. Scene partner credit goes to the amazing @realdaniellopez. P.S. the end is seriously my favorite 😂.

I'm so thrilled and moved by how actors keep showing up for other actors in my Studio Pop-Ups! (150+ this one) So grateful for the wisdom and EMPOWERED THINKING that Michelle Hurd @realmichellehurd graciously shared with my studio alumni. She blew everyone's mind when she revealed she booked STAR TREK:PICARD from a Self-Tape! 🤪🙄Yep. So there's that...

A TOP TAKEAWAY (to share with all)

Michelle reminded everyone to be an advocate for themselves, their art, with their teams and the industry at large, and to never stop advocating as an artist. It was so important for actors to be reminded how YOU DO HAVE A SAY in your career. YOU DO HAVE A SAY in the audition process. YOU DO HAVE A SAY in the art you are contributing to. You are not simply actors-for-hire, you are artists who are a part of the big picture.

OWN IT.

I adore you, Michelle. You're an inspiration. Keep fighting the good fight in all that you do. #timesup initiate, sag-aftra board member, inclusivity in the biz, and ALL the brilliant activism that you do.

You are an unstoppable force. And, a generous human being. THANK YOU. xo

My alumni community makes my heart sing. They don't realize it, shhh, but THEY give ME hope:) Such an inspiring conversation today - about life and art and auditioning and COMEDY.

Reno, you gave so many people such hope & ease, and LIGHTENED the space for us all to dig into the inspiration of auditioning and acting. AMAZING. THANK YOU TO YOU, FROM ALL OF US. xo

(And I'll be sharing bits of it soon with everyone too, so you can ALL be (re)inspired by Mr.Reno. xoxo )

P.S. Johnny, @sanchezjohnny thanks for having come up with the brilliant idea to bring in your high school buddy!!! I adore seeing how strong the lifetime bonds can be between artists. xo @ ZOOM

My fave are Brandi’s hashtags. Motivated! #getit

Plus. My 🎬TIp to you with this clip: Make it all about your scene partner. It’s (weirdly) not about YOU. It’s about the other person, getting through to them your need. Even if your need is to get them away from you, it’s your need. Brandi”s NEED is strong here. So I guess I just mentioned two tips! 1.Make it about the other person.
2.Focus on your need.

Workin the moments @taylor.blackmann !!

🎬TIP: let the camera hear your inner dialogue.

I call it a dialogue because your inner thoughts are hyperactive in response to EVERYTHING you hear. It’s LOUD in there. Your mind is in constant dialogue. The camera loves to “hear” your inner dialogue.
PS. We don’t actually hear anything so you can think whatever ya want! 👀

ACTOR REVIEWS more reviews on the website www.HeidiMarshall.com "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
