What students of the Reel Simple Comedy Content Class are saying:
Jes Dugger "This class is perfect for actors who are ready to create their own work. It's hard to know where to start, but Cheri and Jodi do a beautiful job of guiding you through the process of bringing a concept to life while keeping it simple."
Kelly Kolatec "The class, for me, was like that one friend you have that will pick you up when you're elbows deep in a pile of pizza and cereal, crying, and will grab you by the shirt and shake the shit out of you and say "What's wrong with you?? You're better than this! There's a Trader Joes's at the end of your block with ready-to-go salads. It's so easy! Get your life together, man!", kind of thing."
Danielle Kaye "I immediately knew that this was exactly what I've needed to professionally move forward. Meet-and-greets can be great, and can help actors learn who-is-who in the industry. But learning how to simultaneously further your own vision and visibility
as a performer is priceless."
Natalie Birriel "I wanted to learn both how to make quality content and also execute it in a quick turn around, and now after your class I feel empowered to do so!"
Traci Swain "Just do it. There isn't any room for procrastination. Reel Simple Content is a fast-paced, do-it-yourself class that forces you to get off your butt and make things happen. I was actually impressed with myself and my team. In two weeks time, we produced a finished product - from A to Z - one that I was extremely proud of."
