We work with Actors at all levels… Experienced film/tv/stage actors, theatre school graduates, students, and people looking to take their very first step but don’t know where to begin. We try and take time before, during, and after the shoot to answer whatever questions you have. And so, on this page, we’ve tried answering some of the most popular questions in our Blogs, and list some helpful resources. We hope you find this helpful, and if there is something you want to know please email us or DM on Instagram or Facebook.
