"Great idea, guys! I'm having the worst time getting footage from some people. It's ridiculous. One question--is the tuition due in full, or would you allow payments?"

CAN'T GET THE FOOTAGE FOR YOUR DEMO REEL? OR MAYBE YOU GOT IT, BUT IT SUCKS?

I can't tell you how many actors I know who have worked for no money, just for the sake of getting demo footage for their reel ...and never receive the footage. Or if they finally get the footage, it's unusable. SCENE DEMO WORKSHOP now forming for May. In this 6-week workshop, each student will be developed, coached, and directed in 2 quality scenes custom written for them.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

"David's and Chad's training gives actors the confidence, outlook, and tools to consistently bring out their best, even in pressure packed situations."
~ Matthew Kyle, Actor

"I learned more in the last 3 months from David Dalton than I did with my last coach of 6 years."
~Luke Seven, Actor/Filmmaker

"(She) absolutely loves your class and has learned so much in such a short period of time. We have had many coaches ...and by far you are the best! Thanks so much for making her real!!!! "
~Paula, Mother. Regarding her daughter, 12 years old.

For years I’ve looked to teachers, directors and cast-mates hoping to find someone who could find that ‘little thing’ that would take my acting to the next level; David did that and more with my first monologue. I recommend studying with him to any actor; you will get more out of a couple months with David then you have out of years with most teachers.”
~Triffany Hammond, Actress

“David’s has made all the difference in the world to my acting and to me. The creations, lessons and tools David provided will help me for a lifetime. I see my path more clearly now… the difference is, I am moving along with more confidence.”
~Roxane Sondrup, Actress

“David rocks! He’s brought my auditions to a higher level. He explains things in a language you can understand. I always recommend David to my friends.”
~Theresa Downs, Actress

"Dave Dalton's Masters Class offers a fresh approach to acting. It helps the actor look beyond the surface of themselves, the characters they portray, and the scripts they read from. This class has helped me discover my unique qualities as an actress, and has taught me the importance of always bringing a piece of myself to every role. Dave's experience in the industry provides the actor with valuable advice and information.”
~Danielle Guba, Actress, New York

“David's programs are so much more than just a great acting workshop. It's a workshop for the whole actor. You get career counseling, a personality profile, and a deeper understanding of your own unique process and way of learning…If you can only afford one workshop, make it this one!”
~Kathryn Gould, Actress

AND...
“The combination of David’s experience, insight and talent provides actors with valuable information, which is necessary in any market.”
~Patty Kingsbaker, Radical Artists Agency

DS StudioWorks: A Change in Programs Raises the Bar Even Higher!

DS StudioWorks opened it's doors in the Summer of 08; since then, we have earned a solid reputation for our Commercial Audition and quick memorization training (S.M.T.) We are also known for custom writing scripts for our actors and have written over 200 since we began, which prompted us to launch our MockSides website; a library of free original scenes for workshop actors. We've produced our first instructional DVD "How to Memorize Lines Fast Using S.M.T.", and launched the MockSides…

Thank you! Could you give me some guidance on looking for editors and others who are interested in post-production?

Thanks, David-
Sounds like I have some reading to do -- I will check out the corners. In case you hear of anyone interested, we are looking to find an editor, sound designer and composer for a short film we finished production of about two weeks ago (our ususal post people aren't available). It's a short, about 8 minutes and, of course, no budget. We would be more than willing to allow any work to be used in a portfolio or resume. Thanks again!
