8 Week Class
Jessica (Dean Turner) made each class FUN and exciting. Everyone connected with the work more because of her warmups and class activities. I was shaking in front of the camera for the first class and by the 7th I was laughing in front of it. I think everyone really progressed in Camera 1 class and enjoyed rooting for one another!

Sarah Charipar (Camera 1) was a superb instructor that consistently challenged each student to grow each week. She spent quality time with each student, giving insightful feedback & suggestions after each performance. We performed each assignment as many times as necessary to see real-time progress. I'm very satisfied and have signed up for 2 more classes!

"After a twenty-year hiatus, I am so happy I took your ON CAMERA 1 class with Sarah (Charipar). My first audition for Chicago Fire led to me being booked as a day player for Episode 13 as Officer Westfall. I’m going to take another class. It was so helpful, especially since I had never done TV."
