a one night workshop on commercial script analysis for all SAG/AFTRA members who are eligible to participate in Foundation events. If you are not eligible, I would highly recommend signing up and completing the orientation workshops. There are a variety of incredible workshops and classes (like mine) being made available, and the Lab also makes recording time available to those needing to complete auditions.
I hope to see you there! I'm going to be brutal!
