Loved it. Wish there were more sessions on set.
I really enjoyed the Master Class with Natalie Portman. I'm embarking on a new journey as an actor and this was my first acting lessons ever! I really appreciate the expert advice and insight. I feel that I will be a lot less nervous now at my first real in person acting class, I feel this course has put me more at ease with what to expect. Great job!
Learning the insights of the business and a working actor is incredible as it is something an institute will not teach. It has more power because it comes from a voice with experience. Thank you so much for making me believe it is possible even though I do not have an education in acting.
I've completed a few master classes and this was the best. Natalie shares so much information, very detailed and she is so clearly passionate about what she does, but wanting to really benefit others also. Very inspiring!
