Insights from a Working Actor

Portray Your Characters with Authenticity & Specificity

Do the Work, Find the Truth

Are ready to confidently blend direction with your own interpretation. 
Crave a chance to tackle emotionally challenging scenes. 
Want truthful and specific on-camera performances.


After this course, you will…

Know the joy in creating a fully realized human being from words on a page.
Regularly stretch outside your comfort zone and delve into challenging characters.
Define the creative process that takes you from script to set.
