“I really enjoyed attending the Acting for the Camera class. I enjoyed it so much that I realized on the last night (it didn’t hit me until I was on my way home) we had just completed the last class. I learned that there is far more to acting than I thought, and I know what I have learned in this class gives me much more acting confidence. In the first week, we learned about finding our type and its importance. This is something I had not given much thought to in the past. I immediately took what Gigi taught us and went to get a new head-shot following her guidance. Then right away, I was cast as a detective for an independent film.”
