“I feel much more confident with performing on camera. I learned a lot in the two day period. Shimmy explained everything so it was easy to digest and take on board.”  S. O’Farrell

“A jammed packed 2 days of learning. Pure gold.”  F. Sloan

“I found that the workshop was a superb introduction to the basics of screen acting. Having come from a training grounded in stage craft, this course gave me an insight into the difference between the two mediums, and gave me transferable skills to help me on stage as well. Furthermore, the relaxed nature of the course meant that everyone felt at ease to give each exercise a try without fear.”  A. McCracken

“As someone who trained for the theatre I found the workshop to be literally an eye opener. Many of the techniques I would have used in the past would do me no favours at a screen audition and the workshop has given me the basic tools that I need to give a compelling on screen performance. ” G. Cannon

” I enjoyed every moment at these two days. I learned so much from workshop, it has really helped me to build up my confidence in front of the camera.”  M. Dudinskas

“I found the workshop intense, exhilarating, rewarding and ultimately very enjoyable.  It’s amazing how much content has been put into two days, touching on both theoretical concepts and practical elements.  Straight away I was able to identify common mistakes I make during my own performances and am now armed with knowledge to help correct these. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in or currently involved in screen acting.”  A.
