GOT TO LEARN LOT OF NEW THINGS, WHICH I THINK I WOULD'VE NEVER IMAGINED AS A FRESHER ARTIST. SHE IS INCREDIBLE, ITS ALMOST EASY TO MAKE A GUIDELINE, MAP OUT THE THINGS, GRAPH THE JOURNEY OF THE CHARACTER, THINK CREATIVELY, IMAGINE VARIOUS POSSIBILITIES, WORK AND PLAY WITH THE CAMERA, SET AND PROPS AND MANY MORE. THANKS A LOT!! ~ SANJANA DESHMUKH
I wished Natalie would share more of her experiences in auditions because I think this is such an important part of acting.
As I grow in acting, the most interesting thing to listen to is how other people get to where they are. You can take tid bits from everyone and form your own way, and hopefully in the future be in a position to give tid bits that get others to where they need to be!
Interesting masterclass by an excellent actress. Really enjoyed. Thank you for this gift.
