Booking the Gig: Advanced On-Camera Training

For the experienced on-camera actor, there are very few opportunities to actually practice for your upcoming auditions outside of your own home.

This class is designed to not only take your in-person auditions to the next level, but also to help actors refine their Self-Tape auditions as well.

Perfect for anyone looking to refine their skills, and take their auditions to the next level.


AND each student will walk away with a professionally filmed scene to add to their demo reel!

Whether you aspire to make a splash in Hollywood, or as a content creator on social media, these classes are the perfect opportunity to enhance your skills while also walking away with a high quality demo you can use to either start, or continue, your creative journey.
