I would highly recommend this workshop. I did it in August and the difference it made to me was fantastic. It is practical, effective and you will learn a lot about the techinical side of camera performance. I found the dvd to be a great help. I could see the " before and after" performance of my monologue and the difference was unbelievable.
The workshop is happening in Cork (YAAAY!) in February over two days, they are two very full days. Class size is restricted to an absolute maximum of 12 .
