One of my favorites so far of any class dealing with acting and film making.

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!

It's going wood me think outside the box as an actor. Stopped me from thinking in a cliché way. Also enjoyed the golden nuggets of information.

I loved this masterclass with Natalie Portman. I've been an actress for 15 years while raising my daughter. Now that she's grown, I need to pursue this love I have for filmmaking further.

I have gone through each lesson twice now and have collected alot of the materials suggested by Natalie, so will continue to work on for a few more months, watching the Films, Reading the Articles, Doing the Assignments over and over. If anyone else who is also taking this class might want to get together for a day of 2 to work on together ?? my contact info is on IMDB Pro Feel like I got my $180 worth already but gonna take a few more classes. Love the flexibility of this Platform.

I mean I get it the advice she shares in all of these videos are really helpful and necessary for an actor and the work he must do as an artist himself.But let’s be real all it definitely takes more than that chance is a huge factor and plays such an important factor as well as other things unfortunately

Thank you for being truthful about the reality of roles offered and how to approach them.

Natalie seems a very good person, too, in addition to being a very good actress. Also, like the advice or being staying inspired through various other forms of art.
