What We Will Cover

Each week we will tackle a different genre: 1) Co-Star, 2) Activity, 3) Comedy, and 4) Impediment/Triage. From how to incorporate physical impediments to all of those HIGH stakes hospital procedural shows to creating filling out the world of Co-Star sides to create bookable tapes! Live Sessions will be held Fridays from 11a to 1p (PDT) .

Due to class size, we will not be giving feedback to every tape submitted. Selected tapes will be used to highlight lessons and tips for you to apply a critical eye to your self-tapes.
