What We Will Cover

Each week we will tackle a different genre:
1) Co-Stars, 2) Sci-Fi/Action , 3) Comedy,
and 4) Film.

From how to incorporate physical action into your tapes to tackling the musicality and pace of comedy, and more--we are gonna give you tools to create bookable tapes!

Live Sessions will be held Thursdays from 10a to 12p (PDT) on Zoom. First class is on May 4, 2023.

Selected tapes will be used to highlight lessons and tips for you to develop and apply a critical eye to your self-tapes. We want to arm you with the tools to take ownership of your creative process and feel confident working on your tapes on your own. No more "actor guru" mentality. Due to class format and size, we will not be giving feedback to every tape submitted.

Note: No refunds after May 1, 2023
