Natalie's explanation on acting was very insightful and useful.
listening to someone who has already been in acting films and who has used different types of body language to portray her character is very remarkable and this class helped me realize that acting is where you can experience different roles but still be yourself at the same time.
I'm 34 years old and knew little to nothing about the craft of acting before I watched this master class. I've always been curious about what makes a relatable actor and this class gave me all the tools and the courage so sign up for my first real acting class!
