FAQ

Answers to common questions.  Please read first before contacting me.

ACTING WORKSHOP

Question:  What days are your workshops?

Answer:  The one-day workshop is held once or twice per month on a Saturday from 11am-2pm.

Question:  What is the difference between your acting workshop and your monthly class?

Answer:  The difference between the one-day workshop and the monthly class is the workshop is one day for 3 hours and you get a short 30-60 second clip, compared to the regular class where the scenes are longer and more extensive, in addition to the weekly class where you learn to improve your acting skills.

Question: When do I get my scene from the workshop?

Answer:  Within a week, but a lot of times within 1-3 days.

Question: What format is the video I get?

Answer:  All videos I do are widescreen, i.e. vertical (traditional movie format), meaning they are best suited for YouTube, FaceBook, Acting Casting sites, Instagram posts/Reels, but will look narrow on Instagram Stories.  If you hold your phone horizontally it will fill up the whole screen, but if you hold it vertically is will look smaller and much narrower.

Question: Do you allow minors (anyone under 18 years old) in your workshop or regular class?

Answer:  Minors from 8 years old to 17 years old are welcome provided a parent or guardian is present during the workshop and/or class.   I sometimes have all-kids workshops in addition to a monthly regular all-kids acting class.

Question:  Where can I see some examples of what you shoot?

Answer: Here are samples from the one-day workshop.

Question:  Can I get the raw footage after you film my scene or copies of all the takes that were done?

Answer: Unfortunately, I do not give out any raw footage and each workshop attendee gets one completed edited scene, not multiple versions.

Question:  Can I use my own script?

Answer: Unfortunately not; prior to arriving at the workshop you are given the options of 5 different scripts to choose from.   As actors you are rarely, if ever, given the option to choose your own script (unless you write and direct your own project), in addition, actors should use the opportunity with any script they are given to make it the best possible performance.

Question: How much is one-day workshop?

Question: How do I join the regular monthly class?

Answer:  You have to have gone to a workshop first and then if we have space in the regular class you can join.  If there isn't any space you can pay a small deposit to book a spot until it becomes available.  In addition, you have to qualify as a good fit for our ongoing monthly class, which is by invitation only.
