CD's will view headshots and resumes while student is performing but each student must collect their headshot and resume after they have finished.
Today is the day to meet and work with David Bellantoni. The day begins with a Q/A with David. Next, each actor will get to work on camera with David and receive feedback. Each actor, one at a time, will go into our studio to work on camera with David on commercial sides (that will handed out in class) and be supported by one of our outstanding readers. The rest of the class will get to watch and listen on a television monitor in the main room. Each actor's work will be emailed to them in the form of a High Definition Quicktime Movie after the class to review as they wish. This class is slotted for a 3 hour period meaning that class CAN last 3 hours but if all questions are answered and each student has been seen by the CD, class may possibly end before the 3 hours is finished.
