More about Jessica Dean



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!

— Cayge Clements

"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."

— Courtney Shaughnessy

Doug (McDade - On Camera 1 Online) always hit such a tricky balance of giving honest feedback but doing so in a way that was encouraging and provided a healthy, fun class environment. I've learned more from him in this class that went above and beyond my expectations.

— Alexandria Ross

"From day 1, I learned new things instantly. It was such a comfortable surrounding. Our insturctor really took his lessons and developed them through class, making everything understandable and easy to put onto the screen. It was such a great learning experience; I can’t wait to take more!"

— Camera 1 Student

"Doug (Doug McDade, Instructor - Camera 1) made amazing adjustments that pulled me towards some of my best work. He wasn't afraid to speak plainly and I respect that, It made me work harder. Doug kept pushing for our best and was very patient and intuitive to the different level of the class. He is fun, informative, knowledgeable, and made Tuesday the highlight of my week."

— Timothy Steinmetz
