“This is a very beneficial team to study with. Awesome folks. If you’re a seasoned actor or a newbie, you can take something substantial away. Whether it is refreshing on breaking down a script, some technical camera aspects, chatting about the business or, most importantly, character building then you’re going to the right place. It’s a healthy mix of renew, revitalize and connect. I’ve also had great networking through the class. Lastly, they recognize that one approach doesn’t work for all actors, (but will offer great approaches) they just want to see and get the best out of you. Looking forward to taking more.” – Amanda Yeoman Brooke

While in college, he also discovered the joy of performing Shakespeare.
