Most acting classes drag on for hours as you watch pair-after-pair find their way through the same material while you wait for your 15 minutes. You leave wondering, "Did I even learn anything for my $350/month?"
One booking can change your career. And one insight can book the job. Scene Study aims to make strengthening your acting skills more efficient by creating an asynchronous class where you learn techniques and skills that worked on film by studying the actual performance.

Talent is important. But technique is what will make you a booking-machine! When you have the ability to take a script and elevate in on-screen, you become a valuable actor people love to work with.
I'm ready to teach you how to turn your binge-watching into a ready-to-rock acting class every time!
HERe's HOW IT WORKS
Each scene's lessons come in three parts.
Study the Script
You'll be given a scripted scene and all necessary context. Take as much time as you like to study the script and consider any choices you would make if given this scene for an audition.
Watch the Final Project
We'll watch the video of the final filmed piece. You'll gain immediate insights about things that worked well on-camera that you may have missed in your preparation. Or even better, see how much you nailed it! 🙂
Study the Pros
I'll walk you through the scene and highlight important skills & techniques used by the actors to create a dynamic performance. From each scene, you'll walk away with simple-yet-powerful tools to apply to your next audition. We'll rinse and repeat through a delicious catalogue of performances.
Guaranteed Lightbulb dings!
I'm willing to bet I've got some tips in here you've never heard in any acting class. Why? Because I've never attended an acting class that takes the time to carefully walk you through extraordinary performances to explain exactly what worked.
I believe it's a major oversight in an actors training. And what makes it better? Once you learn **how** to really watch your favorite shows through this kind of lens, your acting will get better every time you binge. Because you'll be learning from the masters all along the way!
