Goodbye to Summer Shorts

Sad to close Summer Shorts at 59E59th street on September 1st! Had a wonderful time playing with such a great group of actors, writers, directors, and intrepid producers of this series!

Successful Week teaching at NYU Grad Acting

I spent a week at NYU’s Graduate Acting Program helping to inaugurate their new Film/TV initiative with my Screen Acting Intensive Had a great time with the second year students discussing film acting, analyzing clips from a variety of filmed content, learning how to identify camera angles, and, most importantly, trying our hand at all sorts of filmed scenes. Our amazing camera crew-Yossera and Federico- shot the students’ scenes all over the 5th Floor of NYU Tisch! The last day was spent watching the work and discussing. Great fun. img_0172
