Testimonial

MONTANA NORBERG (Dollar Cinema, Lego Star Wars)

My training absolutely prepared me to work alongside actors I look up to. It gave me the confidence to know I deserved to be in that room. I was working with actors I admired and that I was excited to be with, but the disciplines we learned helped me focus on the fact that we’re all doing the same thing.
