Congratulations to casting director and TVI teacher, Donna McKenna, who’s latest independent film, WEST END, screened in the Soho Film Festival last night. Many actors from the film were in attendance including some TVI members. The film was a home run largely due to the incredible actors (cast by Donna McKenna).
Let’s face it…training tools for actors can be pretty expensive. We all know the scenario…There’s that showcase you would like to attend, or that class that you would love to be a part of, but money is tight so you say that you will save it and take it in a few months. Next thing you know, it’s 2013 and you failed to take any classes in 2012.
The bottom line is…actors need training. Why you ask? Well here are a few reasons…
Have you ever dreamed of having your own show where you could interview celebrities? What about hosting a Music Video Show on MTV? Or even hosting a reunion show for a popular reality TV Show?

How do you feel when you turn up at an audition and a new scene is suddenly thrust upon you? Can you adapt, and give your all in such a short period of time? How you perform in this situation could be the difference between getting that big break, and just missing out.
