July - Sept
Covid Precautions in our 425 sq ft Studio
temperature checks, contactless entry, handless sanitizer, disinfected furniture
One on One Only social distancing

Caryn is a healthy, conscientious "stay at homer", and masked at all times in session. No one has been in the space but me since March 15, and even then I wash and disinfect often.

As we avoid group gatherings, I am gratified at what a success and help our online Zoom Audition Intensives and Scene Study/ Showcase for Directors have been and keep craft and community going. (Details for the next one starting soon below).

But auditions on tape are gearing back up. And not everyone can do them at home.

Recently I coached and taped a talented actor up for a huge lead part from this very lengthy distance seen above.
But first I scanned his temperature, had him answer my COVID Questionnaire , use the touch-less hand sanitizer as he enters, and remain masked until we shoot.

When you and need a seasoned coach, an informed reader, and who can edit, we are still here. I shoot in 10 - 12 feet away, and can french doors open for more ventilation.

Or Online: via Zoom Skype, Facetime, WeAudition.com. We also edit & upload (Caryn's has some "secret sauce" touches that have been very effective and make your tapes shine over others' )
Pandemic discounts- everybody's situation is unique so lets talk.
