The next Quanon theory is how this course has NOT been leaked out for consumption by the general public. It is HIGHLY CLASSIFIED info. I've seen plenty of social media talks with CD's and taken classes with CD's to get an idea of what people's pros and cons were. There seemed to be some basic do's and don't's with them all not wanting to complicate things for the actor especially during this pandemic. I always appreciated it-BUT This course has shown me where the industry WILL BE GOING with self tapes. The CD's might not desire more from actors, but this course has shown me what is more dynamic in my frame which in turn catches the eyes of Directors AND Producers. It's no surprise how many PMO students book from tape with most not even going to callback. These gatekeepers see all they need on these professional self tapes! This course has me looking forward to my next self tape and I've not even gone through the WHAT'S MY LIGHT COURSE! This course makes me feel as if I know how to give the CD's what they don't know they want with the points Anna La Madrid has pointed out. I'm mad at myself for taking this long to take the course. DON'T DO THE COURSE THRU SAFARI!!! Do it thru CHROME or Firefox if need be. Toodles! -Juan

So Clear!

Unlike other boring technique classes, Anna brings the aspects of framing to life. And yay for sharing her own self-tape progress at the end. That was so helpful and inspiring!

What's my frame is an amazing course to take no matter how long you have been auditioning. It is great for beginners to get a head start and bypass certain mistakes they might make. It is also great for those actors who have been auditioning for years and just need a gentle reminder to be free and have fun.

OUR STORY

Anna honed her skills in the east and Alyshia developed talents in the west.  We crossed paths as Anna's self-taping business was being raved about on That One Audition Podcast.  Alyshia had to experience the taping situation with Anna LaMadrid.  The yin and the yang met and collaborated.  That first tape was magic and a booking!  Their talent and skill collided and a shared mission united.  

We are here to elevate and participate in stories.  Our mission in teaching and convening community is elevation, collaboration and encouragement of true artistry.  We wanted to empower other actors with the skills and tricks that took us years of set training and conservatory to discover.  Where one rises, we all rise together.  Our collaboration has heightened our own careers as we coach each other through characters captured effortlessly on self-tape.  But what makes us really a delight is in the healthy, holistic, working actor approach to learning and teaching others to have the confidence to shine.

WHAT OUR COMMUNITY IS SAYING...

“Thank you sooo much in helping me clarify technical beats like props and action. NY is very anti-props!!!! But they way you broke it down, that it helps propel the next moment -and as a writer, action beats aren't in there for fun, they are moving the story- so it's super helpful to remember to incorporate that as much as possible. ”

Sol Marina Crespo from NY / New Amsterdam (NBC)

“You guys did truly a wonderful job. Even an old dog like me who thinks he knows it all is learning a ton. It’s really in the details with these things. Congrats to you both on the success.”

Alvin Cowan from LA / This is Us, NCIS

“I cannot thank you guys enough for this class. It truly changed this season for me, and I would even say it's changed my career. THANK YOU!!!”

Dempsey Hankins from Chicago

“You two have been so incredibly insightful and very generous with your time. I can honestly say that this class has really made me excited to do self-tapes...I didn't necessarily feel that way before and sometimes, loathed anytime I got a self-tape request because I preferred the room. Now, I am really really looking forward to seeing what happens with my self tapes and career in the future because of the knowledge I've picked up here. The timing of this class couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you both a million times over. ”

Charles Maceo from LA / Big Little Lies, S.W.A.T
