I feel more confident, and understanding of the artistry of acting. I learned a lot from someone I really look up to. I aspire to be able to apply what I have picked up from this class.
I didn't realise that Natalie was an incredible teacher in addition to being a talented actress and director. Thank you. I learned a lot from her. I play her lessons just before I shoot a selftape or go on set.
Excellent!!! LOVED Natalie's style of teaching.
So far, I'm loving this class. Natalie gives great advice and puts it in a clear way. Great for students of all experience!
