So what did you do over the holidays…?

I was honored to be teaching with some extremely talented colleagues collaborating with Astra Films and Kultburo in Moscow, Russia.  No, it wasn’t that cold- it was ski time weather- PERFECT!  Discussion included casting and auditioning in America, and how to prepare to work in the US.  I loved our interaction during our one on one and small group coaching and exercises geared to prepare for feature auditions, the audition room, on-camera technique and how to interview.  Enjoy the pictures…

“Caroline Liem’s class is a buffet for actors. It has everything you need along with the soft serve ice cream. Not only are you working your butt off in front of the camera but you also talk about the business side and all the ingredients that will help you become a successful actor. Caroline takes the time to work with you in front of the camera to help you perfect that audition and help you make those unique choices that no other actor is going to make. I could sit here and type 10 pages of why her class is awesome but you need to find out for yourself. You will not regret it.” Brandon M

Your teachers, mentors, friends, casting directors have trained you, taught you, listened to you, and brought you back over and over again because you’re terrific in the room. But there are always some things you wish they’d told you sooner. Check out my article for  10 Things You Wish You The Casting Director Had Told You Sooner…

“RIGHT ON CAROLINE! Such great advice for actors and all humans! Keep writing! Are you doing a weekly column here? You should!” Eileen O

“The clearest, most cogent and best advice ever from a casting director, and I’ve seen and heard them all.” Charles A

“Thanks, Caroline. Good points – I’ll remember them at when I go into my next audition.” Jenny R

“I really am happy I read your article. You’ve shared some valuable insights. One point you mentioned that stood out in my mind is what art we nurture outside of the business. It’s inspired me with a whole new offshoot of ideas and merging a couple of things. I’m happy that I discovered your article today, since it just broadened my outlook…Thanks!” ER

“Love it – I’m posting this one above my desk!” Jessica M

“TRUTH! Thank youuuu!” Jenna J
