PPALA 2018 – The LA Intensive

Pace University has done it again! I am THRILLED to be a part of Year 4 producing, co-directing and teaching this amazing grup! This year’s BFA Acting seniors traveled from NY –> LA immersing themselves in an intense intensive throughout January. Prior to that I co-directed them in their showcase videos. To view their work and learn more about them – click the link… http://bit.ly/2HAnAON

They worked with industry directors, producers, casting directors, seasoned talent and writers; honed their skills on-camera, produced their showcase videos and learned A LOT about self-care, online presence, who they are and what they have to offer as unique and fierce artists. This terrific group is ready to take on whatever comes their way. So blessed to be part of  their journey. THANK YOU!! #TeacherHat

New talent. Young talent. Singers, dancers, actors, musicians were abundant at CMTC in Toronto celebrating their 25th¬†anniversary! I taught my seminar BOOM THE ROOM: Preparing for an Unforgettable Audition which included proper slating and tips for performing their monologues, commercials and cold reading scenes. Take a look at some of the terrific talent I met…

The Guthrie Theatre|UMN

One of the many highlights of working as a casting director is visiting colleges and universities sharing my experiences and¬†collaborating with theatre departments and the up and coming artists in training on what to expect upon graduation. University of Minnesota BFA Actor Training at The Guthrie is a favorite and this time it was a Juniors who benefitted from early conversation on business tools for the Actor and what it means to be “socially” visible.

New School Video Showcase

New School Video Showcase

I was honored to direct the School of Drama at New School in New York.¬†13 MFA graduates and 24 BFA undergraduates worked at lighting speed and fiercely showed up to film¬†scenes¬†designed in¬†collaboration with myself and CTCA. They learned how to distinguish material showing their strengths as artists, as well as how they would be cast. This was their first time on camera, and they did a beautiful job! Web links to come. For now…

Pace LA Intensive 2017

Pace LA Intensive 2017

It has been my joy to collaborate with Pace University on our third annual LA Intensive. This program has allowed BFA candidates an inside look to our industry. They entered the Writers Room and developed and pitched self-written scripts with Nat Bernstein, uncovered who they are with branding skills¬†provided through The Branding Buddha’s Carla Renata, elevated & monetized their online presence using their unique voice¬†with Larry Shapiro, elevated their acting skills for career longevity with Howard Fine, learned techniques for Self Care with Kehinde Koyejo, as well as perfected their technique for auditioning on-camera for film, television, commercials with myself and casting colleagues and taking a general meeting with executives. All this along with producing their showcase videos that will serve as their reel. I look forward to following up with this beautiful group of artists in the spring. Until then…
