Student Quotes

This class is a lot of fun and a lot of work, kinda like school but in the end it’s worth it.

Write into Production has helped to make me a better actress, a better writer and a better producer.

In Write Into Production I learned how to write and then produce what I wrote, pretty cool.

I learned about rehearsal, over and over and over… 

I was so excited the night before class started I couldn’t sleep at all. I learned not to look in the eye of the camera, super important, and to stay focused and be prepared every day.  It’s not glamorous like people think, it’s really is a lot of work but it’s fun work.

This is a fun class but a lot of work, I loved every minute.
