Taken a shot on the off chance the right person sees this Smiler

Killian's Adult Workshop (for actors with agents) in February

I am registered for Tuesday nights but I have a conflict on the first night Frowner. Is there anyone who is registered for Adult Workshop who would like to switch my Tuesday night for another Feb Adult Workshop class?

though I'm wary of Saturday b/c I may have an acting conflict on one Saturday (fingers crossed).

I am really looking forward to this class and hope I can take it in Feb.

If you talk to them you can just take that one class the next session.

thanks! I was thinking of asking them that - I'd prefer to be able to switch to a class where I wouldn't miss the first session - so I'm still hoping to see what happens with being able to switch to other nights.

Definitely talk to Killian, he might have a solution for you. He's a super nice guy.

My agent took me bc I had Carolyne Barry and improv experience. Agent currently also promotes Killian as well.

Met some great classmates at Carolyne.

All good info thanks guys. I have taken classes with Scott Wissner which I liked very much. Also, as an all around acting class and new to the L.A. area, ACT CLUB with Ryan Williams is pretty awesome.

The problem is classes are structured for different curriculum so I don't know if he'll like that but maybe he'll do it for you if you insist.

From personal experience I really recommend Carolyne Barry's commercial classes. I took the intro and the intermediate classes and I think it really helps me in the audition room - I feel like I know what I'm doing and how to comfortably show the authentic me. Since finishing the second class I have been getting called back for nearly everything I go out for and have been put on avail multiple times. Hope this helps!

Just don't let her talk you into signing up for other classes within her school.

I'm sure the teachers teaching the other classes are qualified, but NO single school is known for everything. There are better places to study Meisner and an improv class from a Big 4 Improv school will benefit you more.

John Sudol

A few months ago, I took Megan Foley Marra and Chuck Marra's one day commercial class because I wasn't getting too many commercial auditions with them.

I REALLY enjoyed it. She and Chuck taught a lot of stuff that Mike (HISYC) and Killian don't cover as well as stuff relevant to film/tv as well. Actually, they're now in my top 3 maybe even top 2 of commercial teachers.

I think John Sudol is overpriced and full of shit. He's trying to turn acting into a science by placing importance on ones facial expressions. We DON'T think about our facial expressions when we have normal conversations! So why should we when we're being filmed? If you are thinking about that shit, you're self aware and will have trouble being a truthful actor.

I looked on Megan and Chuck's website. Is the Friday class $200? Worth it?

I did the Saturday 9-5pm class for $150. I thought it was worth it and if you think about it 4 2-3 hour classes are $200-300. The Saturday class is like 2 classes
