More Information ​What you'll learn
  • Taking direction in a casting setting.
  • Using the frame to your advantage  - Upping the stakes from entering from the side of frame, you'll learn to start and finish your scenes stronger.
  • Body Language - Work with Sarah on saying everything you need to say without saying anything at all. It's motion pictures.
  • Genre & Character Work - On top of the on-camera aspect, Sarah will work each scene, pushing for performances based on genre standards and deep character development.
  • Time Control - Seriously. Ask her.  ​
  • Whatever - This class is designed for actors to break actor habits, run an upcoming scene, or anything else that could help their on-camera career. If you have something you want to work on, Sarah can usually accommodate.

This class provides online lecture series from Sarah for students to watch ahead of time. From character development to how casting works, what Sarah wants to see in the room to what your agents do - the lecture series is packed with information.  Each week, Sarah offers a short Q&A session based on the online lecture. As soon as questions are answered, students get on camera, and receive feedback between three takes, receiving notes and redirects from Sarah.
