Auditioning for film and tv class for beginning, intermediate and advanced actors in Los Angeles
Actors practice in front of the camera with sides from movies ranging from comedy, sitcom, romantic comedy, slapstick, black comedy, and all genres of dramatic writing.
Playback is watched on the big screen. Students learn to stamp their signatures on a character with unique choices.
