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…

Presenting Pace Performing Arts Los Angeles Showcase 2017. This is a video showcase produced and directed by Caroline Liem, Pace Prof/Casting Director and Wendy Kurtzman, Pace Prof/Casting Director/College To Career Acting with Pace University.

They’re ready for film/TV. Please view & enjoy!

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…

One year ago these talented Seniors were summoned to their 6th Floor conference room for a meet & greet with me to begin the discussion of how to prepare for the bridge from their amazing theatre program into our film/TV industry. They’ve done GREAT work during their 3 week session Los Angeles Intensive and now NY gets to see what LA already know. I couldn’t be prouder of you all! Break legs and go be amazing!!! xo
