HI there Actors, Actresses & all of you who love them,

JUNE 4TH, 2019 marks the 10 year anniversary of the Studio's opening! We have so many wonderful classes that will help your actor/actress excel. We are making professionals out of you &/or your little actors. What a wonderful Winter/Spring session we have had.

NOAH COTTRELL is blowing up because of a Master exercise! All Masters were required to do a celebrity impression in class this past session along with a drama and comedy. Noah Cottrell put his celebrity impression up on his instagram and tagged Kalen Allen. Kalen loved Noah's impression of him so much, Kalen put it up on HIS insta 2 days agoand now, it has had over 194,343 VIEWS!!! Everyone is so excited about it!! It is all the buzz in L.A. right now. There is always something fun going on like that at the studio, and things that happen that you weren't expecting!

NEXT WEEK, We have buff-ups and then, this big cool, excitingseminarhappening next weekend with our Industry Guests L.A. Agent Cindy Osbrink, Casting Director Deb Dion. We will also have our our local agents Diana Dyer from Campbell Agency and Dee Ann Vernon from Kim Dawson Agency. (Shannon Horan (Campbell) said she wants to bop by and see our AC students Saturday morning, Alyssa Van Hoover from Kim Dawson Agency wants to come some of the time as well and even
John Kolinofsky (from Callidus) might be coming by as well)!
I look forward to showing off my students!

You know what else is happening next weekend?
SUMMER REGISTRATION!Summer registration is Happening at 10am on Saturday, April 27th. Summer schedule is out & is written down below in order of the Summer by week AND by Levels. You can also look at the schedule as a whole on the calendar here :

MASTERS FILM-MAKING BOOT CAMP!There are so many classes to choose from: One that I am super excited about is our Master Film-Making Boot Camp. It will be produced by bothShaun Cunninghamand I. This camp will have TWO Directors of Photography this year instead of one, all New equipment, a Professional Lighting Guy and Professional Sound Guy on this shoot. EVERYONE in the class will learn how all of this works behind the camera (Two days of Film Theory & Rehearsal) as well as in front of the camera (All actors will have Three days of Shooting on location). It will be edited and if it's as good as it was this past year, It will be submitted to film festivals. This is the second time we have offered this popular camp! The film we shot last year was shown privately in January.

Shaun & I recently submitted them to film festivals. As of today, we have Three Laurels (Three official selections, TWO awards (for Best Young Actress-Audrey Lingle & Best Young Actor-Jake Melrose), and we are semi-Finalists in FOUR categories at one of the festivals. We submitted to NINE film festivals and only THREE have watched it, and we were selected by all three! The other 6 festivals haven't even watched it yet, so we expect more selections and awards!
THIS camp at OUR Studio is not like any other!


(Below is Jay Scarborough with Jake & Dash Melrose for a scene from the "After")

MIDDLE SCHOOL MASTER INTENSIVE with a LOCK-IN!!!Because it IS the studio's 10th anniversary, I have disregarded my rule to "Never have a lock-in again" just for this summer, so beginning June 4th, we will have 21 hours of Work on the Craft and then, we will do Laser Tag, Pizza out, A movie & Popcorn (PG-13) at the Studio and lights out at 1am. We plan to have at least THREE adults to watch the 14 students selected and we will be sleeping by the doors. (I raised 4 boys! I don't trust anyone..LOL) June 5-8th

MASTER INTENSIVE (R-rated)!I also am offering master intensive class for older and more mature scripts. With this master intensive, it includes an option to have a private with Cathryn Sullivan for a discounted price ($50--$75)! This is a rare opportunity. The private can be used as a consult or the student can use it as a private on a specific project.

Cody Linley,My son will be coming back for a week withALL NEW CLASSESsharing what all he has been learning in Los Angeles this year with top Acting coaches, Directors and Writers!

This summer, I am teaching the Pre-AC and AC Classes as I felt like that program needed to be re-vamped this last session and I am still currently working on that to grow with the times! It was so much fun this last session.


AUGUST CALENDAR ISN'T FINISHED YET!We still have some more work to do on August calendar, but we are waiting on an executive to get back to us whether they can work our studio into their calendar yet-- before the August Schedule goes out. Also, if you think we are missing something, email me atCathysully2@gmail.com& give me your thoughts. Sometimes, It happens!

I certainly have the best job in the world...navigating and teaching Actors and Actresses! Thank you for trusting me with your actor's soul! I promise I will always try my very best for each artists' soul I am responsible for.. the right balance of Love and Discipline is what will grow a solid foundation to handle this business!

FILMMAKERS BOOTCAMP: Taking students from script to screen and everything in between.Includes IMDb credit for each student!Students taking this class will learn how to produce, direct and shoot a short film/video, working together both in front of and behind the camera.

Students will learn what it takes to get a project off the ground, starting with a script and finishing with an IMDb-approved short film or video which they will perform, produce, shoot and direct together. (5-7 minute video project).

Students will learn:

  • How to analyze a script from a director’s perspective and break it down for principal photography
  • Principles of directing: The directors role, what is expected of them
  • What camera angles and movements are used in TV and film and how to apply them to the bootcamp script, ready to be filmed
  • Principles of Photography:How to set up and use a camera to shoot narrative TV and film
  • How to make creative decisions behind the camera to make sure that the captured footage serves the script and tells the story in the most effective way
  • Principles of Sound: How to separate and manage sound and video. How to mic up actors and capture sound to a professional recording device
  • Principles of Editing: How to create an editing timeline as well as color correction and grading using vector scopes and waveform monitors and how to avoid the “three cardinal sins of editing” that will get you fired on network TV and studio movies.

Working together as a production cast and crew, once the students have developed everything needed to shoot the video, they will put all their learning into “ACTION” with TWO FULL DAYS of shooting (at least 8 hours).

During the bootcamp, students will take on roles such as director, assistant director, director of photography, sound operator, script supervisor and actors. There will be pre-production sessions, script reviews and table reads, actor rehearsals, shoot planning and scheduling and all the chaos of a real production!

By the end of the bootcamp, students will have created all the footage required to pass to post-production for editing (which will be completed after the bootcamp) and the final video will be available online a few weeks later. Students will earn an IMDb credit for their work on the video, subject to IMDb’s approval.

I appreciate this is a high dollar class but it includes three coaches with public profiles and track records. I’m not aware of any other acting studio offering its students the opportunity to go through a filmmakers bootcamp led by an award-winning filmmaker. Master coach is Shaun Peter Cunningham from Picto Films (www.pictofilms.com). Shaun has over 80 IMDb credits and many of my students and their parents have seen his work, and several know what it’s like to work with him. (Five of my students won awards at the 2017 Los Angeles Independent Film Awards in one of Shaun’s projects).

Joining Shaun, is a professional sound recordist who will be mentoring students before and during the shoot, and I will be coaching actors as well as sharing my own experience of being on hundreds of professional sets.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to attends the Filmmakers Bootcamp. June 25-29th & possibly June 30th.

RACHEL ROBERTSON- We heard from RACHEL!: " I remember my director class very well (I hated editing that film, but I ended up having a knack for it in college). I love seeing more and more of your students try/take up comedy! I know I got started because of you, so it makes sense. I still occasionally do stand up, but I mostly do sketch and original characters now. I'm on a weekend house team at the Magnet Theater in NY, and I love it! Apart from that, my main job is taking stories written by kids and bringing them to life onstage with the Story Pirates, so I've basically been a human cartoon for the last 4 years. Still very much a comedian, now living among hundreds of other comedians, which is very fun. I remember you telling me I'd probably take a different path than my classmates, and I've greatly appreciated that, as I constantly remind myself we're all on our own path with our own adventure and our own battles to fight".


KARIANAKARHAbooked a commercial for Organicare, for their Curoxen product.She's the only actor in the commercial, and she plays a little scientist.Also, the Children's Health commercial she was in premiered during the
Super Bowl,which was exciting!She also has her own little 30-second version...here's the link in case you want to check it out.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2dDuOdcbC8

And, finally, she booked a series regular role on an upcoming web series calledUnder One Roof.It's currently in pre-production and will start filming this summer.

BRENNENFROSTcomes from Florida for class. She just wrapped up filming “Dark Waters” episode 206for theDiscover Channelin Miami after a few days on location. Brennen had to discover a dead body underwater (absolute incredible cinematography). She had to dive down 7 feet to the camera lens (dead body) and react. This was done in a pool and camera men were under her.

Another cool scene she had to jump off a big boat and then swim around in the ocean. They had dive teams in the water surrounding her.

Then the director about fell over when she cried during another scene when her “dad” had to phone in the find to the coast guard! She said Film 2 just poured out and that her training with you all focused her to in character.

Brennen absolutely feels blessed to have you as coaches and prepping her along her journey.

Last month she shot for "Manifest"onNBCwhich she enjoyed too! She’s a hard worker and loves every ounce of this! Kid has big dreams...

News!


REGISTRATION WILL BE TUESDAY, FEB 12 AT 7PM
You will be able to sign up for these classes at 7pm on Tuesday, Feb 12!
HI there Actors, Actresses &
Those who love them,

SPRING Classes are coming out late this session because I've been busy with the Premiere of "AFTER" this past week which I produced!
We shot two casts doing the same script and resulted in two fabulous films. The director and I will be meeting next week making decisions about what Film festivals they(Above is My Staff 2019!)
will be submitted to. We also had Nickelodean callbacks this week & one of my days was filled with 12 hr coaching sessions with no lunch break & I STILL couldn't get everyone in!! I was very proud of how many of my students had callbacks, but I certainly was not surprised.Hard work produces RESULTS and REWARDS!

GOOD NEWS!CLASSES BEGIN THE LAST WEEK OF FEBRUARY AND
REGISTRATION FOR CLASSES WILL BE THIS NEXT TUESDAY February 12th AT 7PM!The Winter/Spring Session's weekly classes will begin the last week of February! .........AND YES! There will be seminars, but those won't be on the calendar yet because one is being negotiated right now, however I wanted to get the class information up right away so we can get this session started!

One of my STAR's -DEBBY RYAN's Momma is coming to do a Parent Seminar this session on March 31st at 3pm. DEBBY RYAN got her start on Disney with "Suite Life on Deck" and was the Star of Disney's "Jessie". Debby is on "Insatiable" now, did a movie with Melissa McCarthy that came out a few months ago, and is producing a lot of things right now! Debby's momma, Sandra Ann has been heavily involved with her daughter's decisions and it's made for a fantastic career! Plan on Finding out how she did it
March 31st! (This workshop will not be up to register for yet, but mark your calendars!) .

THERE ARE WEEKEND WORKSHOPS HAPPENING THIS MONTH THAT YOU CAN SIGN UP FOR RIGHT NOW!There are a few classes happening before the weekly classes begin, so you might think about getting one more session in before we begin weekly sessions. The classes this weekend (Feb. 8-10/Film 2/4 & Mixed Levels) is a
full class with a huge waiting list, but there is another session the following weekend called "MOST LEVELS" that has almost all levels except for Film 4, and there are still 3 spots left in that class.(That class will include Film 2, Film 5, Film 6, New Master 1 & New Master 2 and Master students).
Why not take one more session and go up one more level before the weekly sessions begin?! Also, there is still space in our Film 1 and Film 3 class coming up this coming weekend. If you are thinking about starting in our program, THIS weekend is a great time to start. You could take Film 1 this weekend, get into my Film 2 on Thursdays for weekly classes and that will qualify you for the workshops that are happening this session!

***NEW RULE: IF ANY STUDENT RECOMMENDS A NEW STUDENT TO FILM 1 AND THAT STUDENT TAKES FILM 1, HE/SHE WILL RECEIVE A $20 CREDIT ON THEIR NEXT CLASS OR SEMINAR! (IF YOU RECOMMEND 3 PEOPLE, YOU WILL GET $60 OFF!)

***NEW CLASS!!! I'VE DECIDED I WANT TO TEACH A NEW PRE-AC CLASS THIS SESSION FOR 4-5 YEAR OLDS!!- I had so much fun this last session with my AC1/AC2 class & saw so many results from that class when it came to bookings, I decided to try the same idea for our 4-5 year olds by teaching a Pre-AC 1 and Pre-AC 2 class this session! This will be the first time I have taught this class in many years, but like Amy pointed out to me- the last time I taught AC 1 & AC 2 before this last session- Bryce Gheisar, Mallory Mahoney, Matt McCann, Liv & Gigi Haynes all came from the class I taught, and they are all STARS now!!! It is time for us to try that with our 4-5 year olds. How cool would it be to be one step ahead of everyone else their age when it comes to booking TV & Films!?
Pre-AC 1 and PRE-AC 2 is usually only offered as a summer class and this session &
I am only taking 12 students during this session. We are keeping the price at $199. at this time.

ARE YOU A NEW STUDENT TO OUR PROGRAM OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO WOULD BE GREAT IN OUR SERIOUS PROGRAM?
DO YOU COME FROM ANOTHER PROGRAM IN THE AREA?Are you thinking about becoming a new student to our program? Our program has been around for almost two decades and has launched many stars and working actors in Films and TV shows.
What is different about our program?! Our program gets results! (Check out our Hall of Fame! It's impressive! (Our Master Students don't just book commercials. They book Starring and Leading roles in Studio Feature Films and Starring roles in TV shows! Look at our "Hall of Fame" or check out the website where I am on Selena Gomez's E-Hollywood Story or written about in
Demi Lovato's Momma's book "Falling With Wings" where she champions me as someone who helped her daughter become a stronger human being in this business).

Recently, I've been asked by several people about how they could be placed in our program after going to other programs/studios in the area...They all want to know where they would be placed. (Do they have to start at Film 1, etc.) The answer is different with each person. If you are wondering about this, do not hesitate to contact me directly by my emailCathysully2@gmail.comand we can discuss.
IF YOU ARE A CURRENT STUDENT AND REFER SOMEONE TO US FOR FILM 1, YOU WILL GET A $20. OFF YOUR CLASS OR SEMINAR!(Ask them to be sure and give your name as a referral so you can get the credit!)

MASTER STUDENTS!It is pilot season and with pilot season comes a lot of taped auditions. It is a crazy time,so this is the most important time for you to be growing as an actor.If you finally get down to a screen test or chemistry read, you want to be able to be sharp, compete and land that show or movie!

There will be Regular master classes happening as well as our Special master intensive classes divided by age range. The master intensives are more expensive, but will have less students (only 14 students allowed) and has almost double the amount of time
(14 students, at least 21 hours instead of 14 hours and 20 students). We have a chance to work with students with more in-depth study of each character, more one-one-one coaching on close-ups (which is a skill all of it's own) with "on-location shootings" to help my students become super comfortable with being on sets. I love my Regular Classes too. It's just enough time to keep your skills in tact and learn while being with their people (Dreamers/Artists/Actors/Actresses).

Actors are always either growing and moving forwardsorgetting rusty and going backwards. I have even added a "Make-up day" just for you guys to have an extra day to finish up your work this session-knowing there could be a day that you aren't able to do everything and need a chance to make it up. I promise you, the things we work on this session will only help you in getting callbacks, chemistry reads, screen tests and bookings!!

***NEW!! A BIG PRIZE IS BEING OFFERED TO THE BEST ACTOR/ACTRESS THIS SESSION, TOO!Also, during this session,TWO scholarships will be given out for this summer's MASTER FILM CAMP where actors get to be in a produced & edited film Produced by Cathryn & Directed by Shaun Cunningham! We just premiered our last summer's film this past week called "AFTER" & many master students on that set were quoted as "It was the best thing that has ever happened in my life"! It really is the most fun I've ever had teaching a class as well. We ALL want more of these!
Prizes are going to go to the "MOST IMPROVED" Master Actor/Actress and ALL Master Classes will have a chance to receive this PRIZE as well as "BEST ACTOR or ACTRESS of SPRING 2019".
EACH WILL RECEIVE A $100. SCHOLARSHIP towards the FILM CAMP/SUMMER 2019!

CODY LINLEY is coming into town during Spring Break to offer classes!
YAY! Cody is coming back during Spring Break and has a variety of classes to teach. I love that he has a passion for these things- Voiceover, Improvisation and he's offering a NEW course on Screen-Writing! There is Voice-over & Improv Class (Our students need help with both of these!!!) and a free lunch offered both days to those who take both of these classes. Cody's very popular classes: "Casting for an Actor's Perspective" is back, and his "Advanced Character Development Class"! He also has a few private lessons available for either coaching or consulting. Why not take advantage of this and get him alone to focus just on YOU? He is a great coach and he became a huge star by the age of 15 years old...enough of a Star that he got to be a "Star" on "Dancing with the Stars" (7th season) where he won fourth place and beat out people like Kim Kardashian and Susan Lucci and got to pick his partner, Julianne Hough... so TRUST ME! There is much to be learned from Cody! (Below is Cody Liley with his SAG screeners on "Insta"!)

Guess what?! DEBBY RYAN'S momma IS COMING TO teach A PARENT SEMINAR FOR US MARCH 31st!We won't have this class up for registration yet, but I want you to save the date. Sandra Ann Ryan has done all kinds of things to help Debby become the star she is today! Debbie is "Jessie" on Disney's "Jessie" and is on "Insatiable" right now and is producing several things right now!

I am excited about our new session and look forward to seeing my Kids!

CLASSES FOR OUR YOUNGER STUDENTS:
There are three classes for our little ones. There is a NEW CLASS for Pre-AC 1 and Pre-AC 2 students for 4-5 year olds. We have never had a Pre-AC class during a Spring Session. They are usually held only in the Summer And this is the first time I will be teaching it. I had so much fun teaching my AC 1 students this last session and so many of them booked so many things they went out on (Including one who got to do six commercials in JAPAN!), so I decided to try going even younger.

There is also an AC 1/AC2 class (Acting for Camera 1 & Acting for Camera 2) that meets on
Thursday afternoons at 3:50pm-5:20. I SOO enjoyed the AC 1 class I had this last session. I'm looking forward to getting most of you back this next session. There were so many of those students who booked and got immediate results! The third class I teach for this age range is for my AC 3, AC 4, AC 5 (Acting for Camera 3 ,etc) and up. This class is on Saturday mornings whereI will only take EIGHT students. I begin to get These kids ready to go into the FILM program early. It is more expensive than the other classes, but totally worth it.

Parker Weathersbee is a great example of someone who did the program this way and entered the Film classes early. He booked a six month stint in New York for a traveling Broadway play. He is now traveling around the country with his momma and sister enjoying the Broadway tour life on "Les Mis" and having a BLAST!

PARENT SEMINAR 101

Sunday, March 31, 2019 (2-4pm)

$55

Registration NOW OPEN at www.cathrynsullivan.com

Parent Seminars - Why they ARE IMPORTANT
If your child dream’s it, YOU (the parent) must master (understand) it, SO THEY CAN DO IT!
You know the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”, well it takes a TRIBE to raise an actor!
 Surely, you want to understand and help navigate one of the most important endeavors your child
may take on right? Part of knowing is understanding and understanding is learning. Parent
seminars are available tools for you (the parents) to take advantage of. To learn from the
experience of others and to gain the knowledge of this ever changing industry. Such as: the
difference between an agent and a manager? When is your child ready for an agent?, do you know
what tax write off’s you have? how important is training? the benefits of seminars? agency
contracts? what is pilot season? what is episodic season? AND SO SO SO MUCH MORE. Most
parents of successful young actors have attended and participated in these seminars. Your child
may be the driving force behind this journey but YOU (the parent) are the one behind the wheel, shouldn’t you know where you are going?

PARENT SEMINAR I:
Finding an Agent
Etiquette in the business
Headshots (theatrical vs commercial look)
Resume (template samples)
Prepare for Seminars
What are sides? Scripts?
Informational Acting Websites
Training
Difference between Theatrical, Commercial, Voice Over & Go See auditions
Difference between extra role, principle, co-star, guest star
“Stage Parents”

Classes/Seminars 2018!

 

HI there Actors, Actresses & Those who love them,


I want to start by saying I only give out these newsletters once every 2 months. I am not Macy's. I don't put out these newsletters even once a week, so what is in this newsletter is important information that could dramatically effect you or your child's career. Please Read it! I realize It will take you a few minutes to read it, but imagine how long it took us to write it!

There are opportunities that come along in a person's lif e that can change your life forever. I am offering you one of those moments right now- with these seminars that I am producing at my studio December 1st-2nd. I believe in it so much that I am willing to spend a fortune of my own money to fly in and put up these exceptional, intelligent, ambitious, special, genius, quality human beings who can help educate you and touch you or your child's life! I believe in it that strongly! Meet the players in the L.A. market that will help you up you or your child's game into something you didn't even dream could happen! It doesn't matter if you are just getting started or if you've been doing this for awhile.
THIS weekend December 1-2 can literally change your life!

I have the pleasure to bring my favorite L.A. agent in the world to you December 1 & 2 Jennifer along with what could possibly be the top two managers in the industry- Michael Hepburn & Matt Shelton. Along with these, I will be bringing a wonderful Public Relations Director for acting- Publicist Brandi George and a Public Relations (P.R) person, consultant and music manager Sera Roadnight (more on Sera here: https://www.magictreeproductions.net).

Jennifer is also one of the best human beings I know on this Earth. She's made several of my master students- stars, leading actors and working actors. She (along with Michael Hepburn, who is also coming that same weekend) is the one who made Thomas Mann an actor who works constantly. He is the star of "Lady and the Tramp" that is filming in Atlanta right now (He is the Tramp), was a lead in "Kong: Skull Island" and is known mostly for playing Me in "Me, Earl and The Dying Girl" & the starring role in "Project X". Jen also reps Logan Miller who is also a consistently working actor (Did you see him on 8 episodes of "Walking Dead" last year as well as his supporting role in "Love, Simon" with the beginning of his career being the star of "I'm in the Band". Belle Shouse also is a master student she picked up who also works consistently (She booked her first TV series "Secrets and Lies" where she played a sociopath and is a lead in "Queen America" filming now). Katie Sarife has booked gobs of great shows including "Supernatural", a lead in "Youth & Consequences" and just booked one of the leads in a big studio film called "Annabelle 3". Sahana Srinivasan is another one of Jen's clients who booked her on Netflix "Brainchild" which is coming out this weekend. Sahana is going to U.T. in Austin and Jen helped her get this project with Producer Pharell Williams (From the song "Happy") in New York where it shot for 4 months & even went so far as to make sure Sahana was given a safe place to live close to the studio while being able to go back to U.T. without much loss in credits for college!

I'm telling you- there is so much more to being an agent that Jennifer does that I have not seen in any other agent in L.A. You need to know her even if you have another agent! She will be in the "Big Seminar" on Sunday and will be offering Improvisation Classes on Saturday. She likes to see if students can "Think on their Feet" since that skill is needed in L.A. so much!
Jennifer will be teaching Improv on Saturday, Dec 1st and will be in the Big workshop on Sunday,
Dec 2nd.

Times for Improv Classes are 9am for AC & Young Film, 9:30-11:30am for Film Students,
12-2:30 for Middle School Master Students and 2:30-5pm for High School Master/College/Premiere Master Students & Adults.
Michael Hepburn is one of the smartest, savvy Talent managers in this business. While other managers are helping get appointments for movies going on right now (He does that too, of course), he is setting up coffees with his client with a director who Michael believes will get a movie down the line. This actually happened on "Me, Earl and the Dying Girl". Michael had heard that this particular director was probably going to be cast as director on "Me, Earl and the Dying Girl", so he set up a coffee with his client (& master student/master teacher at my studio) to discuss being the star before the director was even given the job! That was Thomas Mann and as you all know who know anything about this movie, Thomas eventually got that job. THAT move was pure genius!!!

Got HATERS?
A Parent/Student Workshop:
Hosted by Cathryn Sullivan with special guest
Life Coach Carmen Studer
This is a workshop designed Specifically to help actors navigate bullies, haters, “rejection" and joy suckers. 
Come along as your young actor gain skills, tools and attitudes that can change their lives. 
Actors have unique lives. So they need unique answers to some of the issues they face.
Has your actor been:
  • Bullied?
  • Unable to fully express their creativity without fear?
  • Knocked off center by other peoples comments and actions?
  • “Rejected” ?
  • Fearful?
  • Gifted with emotions, but unsure how to utilize them?
  • "Hated" just for being talented?
  • Struggling with jealousy or jealous school mates?
  • Asking important life questions but not listening to your advice and answers?
Join us Dec 9th @1pm-3:30pm for an open and interactive discussion (with a game style twist).
We will dive straight in with an Improv Game custom made for your young actors.
  1. Your kiddos may volunteer from the audience to do a 30 second to one-minute Improv Scene based on a card they randomly choose. 
  2.  The cards will describe real life situations many actors face. (We want to invite parent suggestions for scenes. So please feel free to submit any Improv ideas for scenes your kids have faced or are facing to the front desk. We will add this to the list Cathryn has already created so that your scenes remain anonymous.)
  3. Your actor then improvs the submitted scene in front of us all. 
  4. Once the 1 minute Improv scene ends Cathryn and Carmen will make their comments and soon after that we will open to your Q&A. 
  5. Repeat until we have all laughed & elevated our perceptions so that we are ready to take them out into the real world with grace and perfection.
This is a workshop created FOR YOUR input and benefit.
It is our goal to open minds and hearts in order to empower young actors and their families. 

Join us! We try to speak to all of the parts of our Actors' souls.

This time, we are adding a short PARENT & STUDENT Q & A before each session so all of you guys can get to know them - Both Parents & Student & ask them questions about what they do and what it is like on the set of "This is Us" or what it takes to become an Emmy-Award winning Producer. (You will be surprised!)

I LOVE Seminars! It's a great time for Student-Coach to create a special bond for when the stakes are high. It's competitive and educational all in a very safe place with hand-picked, super A-List People!
I choose Only the best for My students! Look below for the Details on what a Seminar entails and why it's important! I encourage those of you who haven't done one yet to try it. It's so fun, exciting and just really exhilarating!

I mean, how often are you going to be able to talk to the casting director of "This is Us" or an Emmy award winning Producer about the process?! THIS IS GOLD, guys!


THERE ARE STILL SPOTS IN A FEW CLASSES! We added 4 new classes this session, so instead of the regular 12 classes a session, we have 16!! That has given us some room to take more students based on popular demand and there are about 1-3 spots in a few of the classes still.

The Home School Middle School Master Intensive Class, The Wednesday night Master Intensive, The Mixed Level Thursday night class and the Saturday Master Intensive Class were our most popular Classes this session and filled up within minutes of when Registration Opened. We still have a few spots for our Middle School Masters to go. Most of the High School/College Students moved to the Wednesday night HSM class, but we have space for you High School/College Masters on Saturday. Our Mixed Level Class that has Film 5, Film 6, New Master 1 and New Master 2 on Thursdays is filled and closed, but we have a Mixed Level Weekend Intensive coming up in late- October that you can still get into.

BIG NEWS!!
The Casting Director of the Emmy-Award Winning T.V. series "This is Us"JoshEinshohnis coming to the studio to teach a workshop December 16-17 with Emmy nominated producer ("Casting By")KateLacey-Kiley!Kate's Imdb

WhyTake a Seminar??
It maytakeseveralseminarsbefore you (or your child) are really comfortable being in front of the industry guests. I began having these powerful people come to the studio originally because I wanted my son, Cody Linley to know & start feeling comfortable with high level powerful people in this business. I loved that he was getting to know them,that they were getting to know him. They were able to see Him grow and saw that he got better year after year so that they could vouch for himwithoutasingle doubt in their mind when it came time to booking him! Also, the Casting Directors and Agents felt invested in his career! They felttheywereapart of his career & I liked that!

I have several students who when they finally "let it go" and started becoming comfortable, THAT is when the magic happens! Don't force it! Everyone is looking forashort cut. There is no short cut to this business. You have to work at it...one by one...climbing up that long ladder, and there is no better way for our students to understand what it takes to be able to handle the pressure that an actor will be under once they getacallback, chemistry read, screen test or the actual job onaT.V. or Film set. Theseseminarsare nearest to that experience than anything I have ever seen and with Kind, Loving Human Beings as well as high level Powerful Industry People.
WHAT DOES THE SEMINAR PACKAGE INCLUDE?
  • STEP 1: The student comes toa PICK OUT SCRIPT DAY where we pick the right script for them. We go over several options. If your student has a script that they have done well with in class and would like to do a particular scripts that he or she has in their folder, then you can email Cathrynfor approval at:cathysully2@gmail.com.

  • STEP 2: The student will come toa BUFF UP where an aide is assigned to them to make them talk over character ideas and thoughts for the scene. Then, they work on the scene where they are given notes. After that, I watch them intensely and give them detailed notes on how to really come through on their superimportantpicked-for-themseminarscene for theseminar.... ALL of this isapart of theseminarpackage &abig part of this hugelearning process! Every part of getting ready foraseminaris quitealearning experience as well asachance for them to get to know some veryimportantpowerful industry guests!

  • STEP 3: The student comes to the seminar with copies of their script, resume/headshots, and will perform their scene in front of industry guests. (The exact amount of head shots etc change per seminar, so that will be a separate email).

  • STEP 4: The student will receive evaluations from industry guests- Not only the Casting Director and Producer, but also the local agents from both Kim Dawson Agency & Campbell Agency.

FORMER STUDENTS & MOMS SPEAK OUT FOR WHAT SEMINARS DID FOR THEIR CHILDREN:

Howdy folks! This is Caleb Pierce :) Living in LA has been a dream of mine for a looong time, and I am so excited to say I am finally doing it! I'm happy to report there are amazing students from Cathryn's who are living out here already and who make this crazy city feel like home. Of course, I still get newsletters from Cathryn's Studio cause I love to stay in the know, and I am reminded that seminars are in full swing (WOOP WOOP!). That got me thinking about the seminars I've done in the past, and started conversations with some of my friends about how the seminars have helped us achieve or get closer to our dreams! For those of you who are nervous or unsure about seminars, I hope this will be the boost you need take that bold step and be in a seminar!

- Caleb Pierce
(Caleb Pierce had a guest starring role on "Grey's Anatomy" and "Big Bang Theory" this year and had a recurring role on "The Real O'Neals" and "Insecurity" last year. He also came back one week in the summer to teach a few Mixed Level Classes)

"Many people ask me how Bryce got on "Walk the Prank" or in the movies he has coming out soon. I always tell them that there is no magic formula except he went to class at Cathyn's and took every class andseminarhe could. He grew as an actor each time he was at the studio and was signed by both his Dallas and LA agents asaresult of the seminars. He also got his LA manager from the seminars at Cathy's! We have the BEST Team thanks to Cathryn Sullivan's Acting for Film!!! Thank you Cathy!"

- Nicole Gheisar (Mother of Bryce Gheisar)
(Bryce Gheisar is a regular on Disney's "Walk the Prank", has a supporting lead role in "Wonder" (Plays the bully) & "A Dog's Purpose". Bryce will be attending the Tuesday morning Home School Class this session with other stars like Mallory Mahoney of "Bunk'd" to keep their skills sharpened.)

"I started taking Cathryn's seminars as soon as I could. Jennifer saw me at my first seminar and became interested in signing me, but she wanted to see me in another one to know that I was consistent. She then signed me and I've been with her ever since. I absolutely love having her as my agent and am so grateful that Cathy brings in such great people to come see all of her talented students. They have also helped me build a repertoire with casting directors who constantly bring me in the room. I wish there were seminars out here as good as Cathy's -- you get more attention and time to really learn from the guests in Texas. I wouldn't be where I am without Cathryn and those seminars."

- Katie Sarife
"Without Cathryn's seminars, I wouldn't be in the position that I'm in now.

It provided me two agents, a manager, and opportunities I wouldn't have had before."

- Mason Dye
(Mason has had nice large parts on "Teen Wolf" "Finding Carter" and the upcoming "The Wrong Son".
"The seminars are the best way I've ever seen to get in front of some incredibly influential people. LA is such a tough town, but I was able to come out here already having an agent (who I met at the seminar) and already knowing casting directors! So I had such a big leg up on everyone else who had never had that opportunity. I've seen people driving themselves crazy trying to figure out how to get in front of LA agents, and I was able to do it in the safety of my favorite acting studio with absolutely no pressure! I recommend that all actors who are serious about this business and serious about having a good foundation when they come to LA take EVERY SEMINAR OPPORTUNITY THAT CATHY GIVES! She has never had someone there that didn't matter. Every time you are able to get in front of someone like the people that Cathy invites, you are taking another huge step in your career. Every seminar counts. I have the best representation in the world. I really believe that. And I wouldn't have had it if it weren't for Cathryn's seminars."

- JT Neal
(J T Neal is on Netflix "Sierra Burgess is a Loser" and is a lead in a Big Network Series coming out in the Fall with Lake Bell).

"I can't even remember how many seminars I've taken with Cathy, but after every seminar I always came out a stronger actress and stronger person. Practice, passion and dedication is key and inserting yourself into a situation that is out of your comfort zone isn't a skill you can master over night. By taking seminars starting in the film classes, I was subconsciously preparing myself for all of the future seminars I'd take. Seminars are different than regular classes, and you have to practice them just like you'd practice doing a scene in class. Try doing the best for yourself. Odds are, if you do your homework, prepare, and come in ready to have a great time, you'll impress the people in the room by just being YOU!"

"It's kinda funny when people ask me how to get auditions and how to find representation in LA. I have to tell them that I honestly don't know! I had the luxury of meeting people at seminars at Cathryn Sullivan's studio. It was really cool because these powerful people would come to my studio - the studio that felt like home - and spend HOURS with us. Not just 10 minutes like an audition. So I really got to know the people she would bring in and they also got to know me. Plus I could do a scene that I knew I was strong in. I learned so much and she brings so many different people. Agents, managers, casting directors, even studio executives. No one in LA gets studio executives to come to them!! It's unheard of. That's how recognizable her studio is in LA. I've even gone back to TEXAS after being in LOS ANGELES to take seminars to meet the people she brings in! The biggest thing I took from Cathy's teaching is confidence. That's very important in LA. When you get to spend quality time with big wig/important people... you realize that... That they are people. It makes the whole LA experience less intimidating which makes you more confident. Confidence is what's going to get you an agent and a job. I'm really thankful to Cathy for giving me a platform to hone in my skills as an actor but to also grow in my confidence in my acting."

- Noell Coet
Cathy brings in amazing industry guests for seminars to work with our kiddos right here in Texas! I have signed my daughter up for numerous seminars over the last few years. I know that because Kiera has been able to meet and learn from these professionals, there has been a positive impact on her accomplishments as an actress. Kiera enjoys seminars because they are challenging and fun at the same time. I would highly recommend you sign up your child so that they can experience the growth that happens as a result of consistently attending workshops in addition to classes. We have been so blessed to belong to the Cathryn Sullivan acting family, this studio is where the magic happens!"

September 16 

Hi Actors and Actresses and Parents who love them!  
 
Today is REGISTRATION for Fall Classes at 1:30pm. Phone lines will be opened at noon if you need some help or information.  
 
There are a few changes from the newsletter  that went out last week:  
1) We didn't have enough hours on the Tuesday night Middle School Master Class at 5pm, so we added some more hours, so that there are at least 21 hours including two Monday night classes. (Thank you, Laura Alford!)  
 
2) Also,There will be an "Out-of-Town Customized Master Intensive class (Pg-13 & R-rated)" sometime during the Fall, but I'm waiting to set that to put in some other things being negotiated right now depending on our Guests availability, so hang on. In the meantime, we have added a  
"Holiday Out-Of-Town Customized Master Intensive Pg-13 & R-rated" that is scheduled between two days after Christmas and the day before  
New Year's Eve (Dec 27-Dec 30) so THAT would be a nice Christmas Present for some lucky Actor or Actress! Also, If you get into that class and decide you would rather have the Master Intensive that we set during the Fall, you will get first dibs on that class before it goes out to the Other Students at the Studio.*       
 
3) A "Pick out Script" Day has also been added to the calendar for  
October 8th from 4-5pm for AC Students, 5-7 and 7-9pm for Film and Master Students to pick out a script for the "THIS IS US" Casting Director JOSH EINSOHN  and Emmy Award-Winning Producer Kate Lacey-Kiley  Workshop. We will put THAT workshop up to get into after we handle the Class registration so it is easier to figure out who qualifies. (Students must be in class to be able to take seminars/workshops with our Prestigious and Powerful Industry Guests).   
 
If you didn't get a chance to read the newsletter this past week, it is copied again down below to make it easier for you to remember what you might want to sign up for today. Try to get on the computer a little before 1:30pm to make sure your child gets in.  
 
All classes will be "Requests" except for Film 1 and AC 1 classes until we see if every student qualifies.  We will begin working on the Requests as soon as they come in, so some classes are filled within a few minutes of registration, however there are lots of choices of classes this time, so I feel like we will have space for my students as long as you register on time. Now you have to be by a computer. My students Mom's use to have to stand in line for hours to register (Back when I was in Coppell) so at least, you can register for classes in the comfort of your home!  
 
Many call the studio "My Second Home" and I believe that the magic of our studio just keeps getting brighter and brighter. I thank God for that "magic" and all of the blessings he keeps giving my studio and my students. I believe God wants us to help change the world and we are already doing it. Let's keep on making that happen!  
 
I will see you soon!
 
Passionately,

NEWSLETTER FROM THIS PAST WEEK:             
 
WE HAD A FANTASTIC AMAZING SUMMER SESSION: First of all, during this summer session, we had 32 classes (7 of those were master intensives with 21-24 hours each), 16 buff-ups, two wonderful seminars (with six sessions per seminar with two casting directors, an L.A. manager, two of the best agents from Kim Dawson Agency and Campbell Agency in the Southwest Region and another Atlanta agent)! We also produced a short film with two casts that Writer/Director Shaun Cunningham & I wrote (Well, Ok...I helped with the story outline...He wrote the entire screenplay). We double cast the film and then- we filmed both casts in 104 degree weather over two long, but fun adventuresome days.  It is now almost edited with an October red carpet event planned. The director, Shaun Cunningham, who has won many awards over the years for his films has strongly suggested that this film is going to end up winning awards at a bunch of film festivals as good as it is looking! I believe him! It was magical... and we just meant for it to be a learning project, but it is turning out to be so much more.  
Check out our director/editor  Shaun Peter Cunningham 
 
My staff was never better as we had the new Aides coming in learning and working side by side with my alumni aides about to leave to take their shot at the L.A. game.  However, I hope you noticed  some of THOSE Master teacher/Aides will still be coming back and working for us during this Fall session for a few weekend intensives  
(See details on the class lists down below).  
Trivia: Of course, one of the NEW aides I chose got a movie a few weeks after we started training him, and he is now filming in Canada for 3 months (Edison Grant). That exact thing happened the last time I hired some new aides too. I hired Noah Cottrell as a mini-aide and a few weeks later is when he booked "Skyscraper".  
(Apparently, it is really good luck to be asked to be an aide at the studio). LOL
SUMMER SESSION 2018 was seriously the best summer session EVER!   
 
FALL CLASSES! Fall Class registration is TODAY at 1:30pm (September 16). I've been listening to you. We have made a few changes and upgrades to the classes and studio which will be explained in detail down below.    
 
WORKSHOPS! WE HAVE TWO GREAT WORKSHOPS PLANNED and several being negotiated right now!  
 
We have our first workshop scheduled for October 20th-October 21st with  
JOSH EINSOHN , casting director of  The T.V. hit series "THIS IS US" and  also
 KATE LACEY-KILEY will be with us that same weekend in a 2-for-1 package. Kate is a fantastic Producer. In fact, she is in the process of producing a movie right now. Kate is the Emmy-Award winning Executive Producer of "Casting By" which you can watch on Netflix. It is a documentary about the world of Casting Directors. Before Kate was a producer, she was a casting director and executive at Disney. This will be the SECOND TIME that Kate & Josh have come to the studio. It is scheduled for October 20-21 and registration for that workshop will be forthcoming as soon as we get class registration done.   
 
We also have a workshop for our girls called "How to Turn our Princesses into Queens!"  scheduled with Life Coach Carmen Studer for Sunday, November 11 at 1pm.   
  
OTHER WORKSHOPS! There are other workshops we will be adding as well. Some of those are being negotiated right now, but I wanted to get the Class Schedule out now. More details on these will be coming including Jennifer who will be teaching Improv Classes, and Mitchell Gossett is considering teaching a few intensives. More details on that later.  
 
EXCITING NEWS!
Former Master Teachers/Master  student THOMAS MANN and LOGAN MILLER  are planning on "giving back" to the studio, and are planning on doing a workshop for us during our Winter/Spring session. They were actually considering doing one THIS session when Thomas booked the starring role in the Live action film "Lady and the Tramp"  which is filming in Savannah,Georgia for several months right now.  Things are really popping for my students all over the world and I couldn't be more proud. (Click on their names and notice their kick butt resume's!)  

 
UPGRADES AND CHANGES:  
1)  WE ADDED A MASTER INTENSIVE CLASS FOR HOME SCHOOL STUDENTS 
on Tuesday mornings from 10:30-1:30pm!  
(We are Only taking 12 students for our first Home school Master Intensive EVER for the price of 14 students at this introductory offer at $635.)  
           
2) I WILL TEACH AC 1 AND AC 2 for the first time in years! 
 
Amy Haynes, my Website and Front Desk manager reminded me that the last time I taught AC 1/AC2 teacher, the class consisted of several students who are rock stars now...... literally! The last AC 1 class I taught had Liv and Gigi Haynes (NotUrGirlfrenz band), Bryce Gheisar (Regular on "Walk the Prank", "Wonder", "A Dog's Pupose") and Matt McCann (a regular on "Man with a Plan" in it's 3rd season where he plays Matt LeBlanc's son), SOOOO it worked out well last time this happened, so I hope to get some more special students in this NEW AC1/AC2 class.  
 
*AC classes Or Acting for Camera Classes are for 6-9 year olds who want to try their hand at acting for film. We mainly work on Comedy scripts that are age- appropriate until they are ready to go into the more serious, film program.  
 
3) OUR EQUIPMENT AND STUDIO HAVE HAD A MAKEOVER!
Over this past summer, we bought new floors for the studio including extremely padded carpeting for inside the studio rooms to help with any stunts the students might want to try in their scenes.  We got beautiful new couches and new 4K TV's & new 4K cameras. We also added expensive new lighting as well as a portable light and light reflectors for outside shoots for master intensives ,and brand new audio equipment including more lavalier microphones.  With the two brand new 4K TV monitors and with our new 4K cameras, the students look UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL! It's such a huge difference!  
The TV's have been put on the wall, so we have more space to play!    
 
4) Per several of your requests, We have moved ONE of the  
REGULAR HIGH SCHOOL/COLLEGE MASTER CLASSES to Wednesday nights to give my HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE AGED STUDENTS A CHOICE of either Saturdays or Wednesdays.   High School/College Aged Students have a choice now of a 5-7pm Wednesday class or a Saturday 4-6:30pm class. 
 
5) ONE ON ONES- I will have one on ones scheduled for Sunday, October 7th for those of you who want to discuss you or your child with me. Are you wondering how to navigate their career better and need more one on one time to discuss it with me, or want to know how your child is doing specifically and my recommendations to help them? Then, grab a one on one. They  will be in 30 minute segments beginning at 9:30am, Sunday, Oct 7th.  
 
We are so excited about everything that has been happening at the studio and are looking forward to even bigger and better things happening the  
Fall Season 2018!  I LOVE MY JOB and I am missing all of my babies today!  
I can't wait to see them all again!  
 
Check out the classes in detail below and then, we have a recap at the bottom of the newsletter for those of you who want a straight up list.
 
Love and Dreamers,

AN INTRODUCTION TO OUR STUDIO FOR OUR NEW PEOPLE:  We are always looking for our next big star or working actor. If you think you or someone you love is a candidate for our serious acting studio where actors feel safe and at home, come check us out!  
 
Our studio attracts serious actors and actresses from all over the country and even all over the world and we have never done any advertising in 18 years (9 years in Coppell, 9 years in Lewisville). We have had students who've worked the full program and have become master students who have come from Wisconsin, Tennessee, Florida, Illinois, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and even California,Thailand and all over Texas (Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Beaumont, El Paso)!  Cathryn Sullivan and her studio have been featured in "Good Morning, Texas" , Selena Gomez's "E-Hollywood Story" and in Demi Lovato's Mom's book "Falling with Wings" where she is talked about as being a champion to Demi to help her become a stronger, better actress/person.  
 
This program is one that Cathryn developed after being on over 100 sets with her sons and students along with what she learned from professional acting classes.  Her favorite coach was a student and intern of the famous Acting Coach Uta Hagen and a lot of her philosophy comes from her work. Some of Cathryn Sullivan's students have become huge stars  like Selena Gmez, Demi Lovato, Hayley Orrantia- The Goldbergs,  
Thomas Mann- Kong: Skull Island, Me, Earl and the Dying Girl, Lady and the Tramp (He's the star...filming now in Savannah) and many are working actors who are becoming stars like Mallory Mahoney- Regular on third season of "Bunk'd" & "Adventures in Babysitting) , Matt McCann (who is a regular on "Man with a Plan" where he plays Matt LeBlanc's son),  
Bryce Gheisar ("Walk the Prank", "Wonder", "A Dog's Purpose"),  
  
Bryce Cass who plays 'Cyrus' on "13 Reasons Why" plus the studio boasts of having
4 out of the 5 leads in Facebook Watch's "Skam" including the main star for season 2, Kennedy Hermansen. Some of these will be taking classes this session while they are on Hiatus.  
 
These students realize that doing this business takes years of dedication and commitment. What we are learning is the "Olympics of Acting". We are SERIOUS about Acting at our studio. Each class session represents seven weeks of work including working on the depth and range of your characters, learning how to actively listen, react and be affected, how to handle different types of comedy genres (Comedy network vs. feature film comedy vs. Disney channel or Disney feature film comedy- ALL different paces and styles), plus learning how to get into characters that are opposite your personality. There are group scenes, location shoots and master intensive classes which have less students and more hours for the really serious of students.  
 
 
There are basically 4 types of classes at Cathryn Sullivan's Acting for Film:
1) AC classes - Acting for Camera classes are for the 6-9 year olds.  
They are for the little actor. Comedy and nurturing their love for creating characters is the goal in these classes.  
2) Lower to Intermediate Classes- These are our block classes (from Film 1-Film 6 and New Master 1 and New Master 2 classes). They are the rock solid structure that builds our actors into strong actors and human beings. ALL STUDENTS are required to take these series classes and each one is divided by RANK rather than AGE.  
3) Regular Master Classes- Every session, we have a master classes that are grouped by AGE rather then RANK. Each session is new and different and Cathryn Sullivan designs each session to help with whatever the business is trending with right then or whatever she feels like her master students need work on.  These classes are around 14 hours with about 21 students each. 
4) Master Intensive Classes-These Classes are the ultimate Cathryn Sullivan experience as there are only 14 students in these classes with at least 21 hours per session. Students get many takes and learn close-ups and work on location shoots outside the studio. (Last session, one student got 16 takes on one scene!)  The students also have the option to be sent their work by hightail where they can edit the scenes for Instagram/Social Media or reels for their managers/agents. 
 
Master students also go into other lines of work including being agents,  
Production Crew, Casting directors and more... We also have master students who chose other avenues in this business after being master students in the program including Alex Yonks who is head associate to show-runner (the big boss) on "BIG BANG THEORY", Bella Loughborogh who worked as a P.A on DR PHIL for years) As well as some who have become Agents and Managers (Alyssa Van Hoover is now the head assistant at Kim Dawson Agency and Jordan Reynolds is an associate manager at  Mozaic Management in L.A.   Recently, We had Adam Kroennager become a casting director associate at 20th Century Fox and Katie Sarife, one of my former aides is an actress and acting coach. In fact, last weekend- she was flown to New York City to teach a serious class there. 

FALL REGISTRATION is September 16th at 1:30pm!!!!

FILM STUDENTS (Students age 10-27)


Film 1
This is where the 9-26 year olds begin. Yes! All students, no matter what age begin with Film 1 with all age groups. Once they are masters, each master group meets with their age group-however until then, they meet by skill level. Believability and being directable is the most important abilities that are worked on in Film 1. They also will build character development skills,work with props and marks while responding to set directions. We simulate real onset location shootings as leads, principals and extras. The students will boost their on-camera skills while using different types of shots (Master shots, Extreme close up, 2-shots, etc).

Film 1 with Ben Sullivan- $359
Friday, Oct. 12th 5p-7p
Saturday, Oct. 13th - Sunday, Oct. 14th 9a-1p

Film 1 with Ben Sullivan- $359
Friday, Nov. 2nd 5p-7p
Saturday, Nov. 3rd - Sunday, Nov. 4th 9a-1p

Film 2/ Film 4
You only get credit for 1 level per series/session

Two levels meet together learning their series, whether it be Film 2 or Film 4 while being in class with the other group. Film 4 is reviewing Film 2 and Film 2 is being able to watch what they are about to get into. Film 2 is all about feeling deep emotions. This class elevates the students' usage in being able to project their extremely emotional scenes. Crying on cue is learned in Film 2. Film 4 is all about Inner monologue.Years ago, several casting director in L.A. asked me to begin teaching this class. They said "Everyone thinks acting is about thelines, and it's not. It's about listening and being effected by what is happening in the scene and processing that". They went on to explain that they have a hard time finding actors who know how to do that. THAT is why Film 4 was designed and why I believe it is probably the most important class I teach. It is also the class taken over and over again. Even Bryce Class,one of my best actors who has ever come out of the studio took Film 4 over as a Master student.

Film 2 / Film 4 (Combo Class)- $389
(You will only receive credit for 1 level. This combo class must be taken twice.)
Thursdays - 5:20p - 7:20p

Friday, Oct. 26th, 5-7p
Saturday, Oct. 27th - Sunday, Oct. 28th 9a-1:30p


Film 3w/ Ben Sullivan - $359 (A weekend intensive)
The focus on Film 3 is cold-reading skills. You could go into an audition and be asked to read for the "other"character not given to you by your agent that week. One must have really effective cold-reading skills in place to pull that off and Film 3 will help you know how to handle that very situation.

Film 3 with Ben Sullivan- $359

Saturday, Oct. 13th - Sunday, Oct. 14th 2p-6p

Film 4
-See (Film 2/Film 4 Combo. Both classes are taught at the same time).

Mixed Level Class (Film 5, Film 6, New Master 1, New Master 2)
Film 5, Film 6, New Master 1, New Master 2 are usually in a "Mixed Levels" Class with Cathryn Sullivan. Each student will take a "Mixed Level" Class FOUR times. Each time, the student will concentrate on a different level each time.

Film 5
Students will concentrate on Comedy. Comedy is one of the hardest things to teach and learn. Super funny people must learn how to put their funny personalities into scripts, and it's not as easy as it seems.

Film 6
Students learn how to become characters opposite their personalities. An actor doesn't get to choose what characters they get to play. The auditions are usually for complicated, interesting characters that range from mean girl, bully, nerd to sociopath. Students must be ready to delve into those characters with confidence.

New Master 1begins with the learning of Voice-over work (Slates and ways to be a professional in the VO world is completely different than Film and TV work). After that, we concentrate on physicalcomedy. Physical comedy is some of the hardest things your child will learn using your body to create comedy. They do it everyday in real life, but have trouble learning how to put it in their scenes. We show them the way. We end up New Master 2 with a dramatic monologue.

New Master 2
Up until New master 2, most of our work has been concentrating on very real and believable work studying Oscar winning type performances for onlyFeature film and Network. New master 2 is the first time the studentwill be given the KEY to Booking Disney andNickelodeon series- both for regulars and recurring roles. Disney has a quicker pace with 1/2 second reactions and must be animated, yet real. It is very hard to balance that genre and we have lots of experience in this. Disney stars go on to become something of a staple in the world with everyone looking at what you are doing no matter how old you are. The cameras are always on you during your good and bad days.

Stars who got their start with Disney include an impressive list: :
Selena Gomez (who is now producing shows like "13 Reasons Why"), Demi Lovato (who besides being a Disney star on her own show nabbed a People's choice award for "Favorite TV guest in "Grey's Anatomy" where she played in a very dramatic role that Cathryn coached her on) . Check out season 6,episode "Shiny Happy People".Zak Efron, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Hayden Panettiere, Christina Aguilera, KeriRussell (star of "The Americans"), Anne Hathaway, Miley Cyrus, Paul Walker (of all of those "Fast and Furious) and Academy-nominated RYAN GOSLING all got their start with DISNEY. Yes, their are some that have gone up and down the popular ladder, but once they became Disney people,they are never far off of being observed through amicroscope by the world and doors are opened to Disney Stars that do not open for most of us.That is the truth.

*****************************************************************
MASTER STUDENTS
Every master class is different than any of the other master classes. Cathryn researches and delves into understanding the most up to date work coming out of Hollywood and what trends are happening that are causing attention. Each master student is expected to have an extremely serious and professional work ethic with choices for their scenes and characters. Many times, students work on Oscar winning movies with scenes that have been edited and developed for more age-appropriate scenes including shows like "La La Land" and Classics like "Primal Fear".Cathryn believes that Young actors are smarter and better than what most people give them credit for and she has been proving that year after year with her Skilled and talented Master Students!

Cathryn would like toencourageyou to cater your edit for different audiences. For example, you would send a different version to your agent from the version you would put on Instagram. Make sure it is interesting to your viewer. Instagram clips can only be 1-minute long. Always remember attention spans and time limits when sending to your agent or uploading to YouTube as well! Keep it at 2-4 minutes!AGENTS HAVE BEEN TELLING US to keep it between 1-minute and 1-minute 30-seconds. Find the dynamic sections that truly showcase your talent. Always put your best foot forward!


Passionately,
Cathryn Sullivan
