From two of our students:
Gary and John,
I just couldn’t resist telling you that at my first audition for Cima Talent, the first thing Gigi said to me afterwards was, “Do you teach on camera classes?”
I’ve had other instructors before you two who definitely got me to a place where I could get infinitely more out of your classes, yet since you are the only two people I’ve studied with in recent years, I really wanted you to know that I’m very aware of how much your instruction got me to a stronger level so that I could actually be even asked this question.
I am so grateful for your excellent teaching and have really enjoyed getting to know both of you as well.
Dear Gary and John:
I want to tell you both what I really think about you and your whole Working Actor program. Acting is hard, you say. So is teaching. I've always been wary of self-appointed experts; people who hold themselves out as being knowledgeable enough to teach someone else what they think they know and actually charge filthy lucre for it.
So going in, I'm skeptical, even though I've heard good things about your courses from people I respect. But in the first hour or so of Working Actor I, that skepticism vanished from my mind like a short list of nouns. My outlook on the two of you and your Working Actor 1 & 2 classes is about as positive as anything I've been involved with in this business. O.K., the memory exercises drove me nuts, but that's because I have serious retention issues or something. I forget.
Seriously, your Working Actor I & 2 classes have been a genuine learning experience for me, one that I would recommend to anyone who would aspire to work as an actor at any level in any medium. I respect the two of you for your obvious knowledge and experience, for your labors in developing an instructive and unique curriculum, and for the friendly, humorous, and humanizing way you work with your students.
