On-Camera Classes

"Thank you so much Melinda for introducing AJ to the entertainment industry! You have taught AJ everything that he needs to know about the audtion process and what is expected of him. You have also taught us what to expect as the parents of a young actor. Your on camera classes have given AJ the edge that he needs when going into auditions. AJ continues to get callbacks, check avails and bookings thanks to the great skills that you both have taught him!"

~ Tiffany P. and AJ, represented by STARS

"My son attended an on-camera workshop this year with Melinda and absolutely loved it. It is a rare thing to have a person who is so committed and professional but who also genuinely care about the kids they work with. He felt comfortable and respected and this allowed him to be at ease in front of the camera."

~ Alex S. and Griffin, represented by STARS

"My daughter, Destiny, was so enriched by studying with Melinda in her on-camera class. It gave her so much confidence to speak in front of a room and audition at a high level. It has led to Destiny being cast in a short film project directed by James Redford!"

~ Stacey C, Destiny represented by Models Inc.

"The on camera classes gave Paige the confidence to really believe that I can pursue a career in acting."

~ Donna B. and Paige represented by STARS

"Melinda and Kristy's on-camera class is a practical, hands-on, fun experience for students. My son came way with improved technique, attitude and a trusting confidence that resonates in his current work."
