Columbia MFA - filmed class exercise

Written and Directed by Can Turedi


This was such a wonderful experience and I'm glad to have worked with Can (pronounced "John" - it just looks like "Can" in English) twice now in an in-class directing exercise and now in this filmed exercise. I was able to put into practice a lot of what I'm learning at The Atlantic Acting School in terms of seeing what's going on in my scene partner, letting that affect my behavior and using different tactics to get what I want. There's a whole lot of talent in this group!


Fun fact: According to the director and DP, I have a great profile.

The contract has been signed! In the fall, I will be studying at The Atlantic Acting School's Evening Conservatory! Hmm, it's as if I want more training...(get it? get it?)
