what Actors / clients have said
“This morning I had an audition on Zoom that I had 16 hours to prepare overnight. It was a four-page scene, and I had to do it in an accent that's not my natural one. Because of the work we did, I was excited rather than scared through the whole process, from the expedited preparation to the session itself. And I was actually happy with the work I did and felt present during both my first take and in making adjustments for the second. I've found a bit of confidence in my acting that wasn't there before, and as cheesy as it sounds, I truly feel that when I look back, I'll see that working with Sarah Jane 2+ weeks ago was one of the major turning points in my career. I'll be eternally grateful, and I look forward to working with her again!"
