I think Carolyne is a bit behind on camera technique, but I do think it's good to practice both. There are some auditions where I was allowed to hold the sides, but most of the time it was hand them in and either improvise keeping the main points in mind or using the cue card.

Well in Carolyne's intro class, you'll be with Amy for about half of the classes. She has a totally different energy than Carolyne but she's great as well.

In Amy's class, you work extensively with cue cards. I don't think I ever took commercial copy up there...

However, Carolyne doesn't focus on cue cards.

I have not taken classes from anyone but Carolyne Barry. What I can say... my experience is that she deeply cares about her students. I find that if a person really cares... if they really love their students, everything else falls into place. She cares. she cares enough to tell you the truth even if you don't want to hear it... because it will help you. She cares enough to spend an unbelievable amount of time improving the materials and courses that she gives the her students. if you haven't read her book or watched the videos on her Mastertalentteachers.com websites, check out those amazing resources! good luck with whatever you choose to do. - James Wagner

After going to Stuart K last year, I decided to sign up for Killians this year. I'm doing this mostly bc Killian is a "hotter" flavor, and I'm curious to see what else there is to know/learn. I'd also like to be on his radar and see if that dvd he sends out will help me get any bites.

KILLAIN!!! I refer everyone to him.

I took his class, booked a National. Took his callback, booked again. In ONE year after his class, I was on avail 9 times and booked 5. It's a new year and I've already booked 2 and avail for 3.

He's worth it! Love, love, LOVE him!

Hi, sorry to bump an old thread, but I'm also wondering if Eric Almquist is just as good as Killian? And is the general consensus still Killian > Robinson?

I see a lot of posters with a post count of 2 pimping Carolyne Barry, which turns me off (yes I realize my post count is only 1 right now, but I'm not promoting anything in my post).

I don't know how good Eric Almquist is, but Killian apparently trusts him.

There was someone on here who did study with both Killian and Stuart K. Robinson. Hopefully, she finds this and chimes in.

Stuart is a working actor so he's clearly doing something right. Killian is great because he gives you the worst case scenario of a real commercial audition.
