Recording your work

  • SD card work on our HD camera. A mini SD WILL NOT WORK nor a  memory stick. If in doubt, send me a picture of what you're planning to use. Do not wait till you can't work to make sure you have the right tool.
  • Bring your SD card to every class. You'll need it on audition tech night and sometimes for ice cold reads.
  • Email me with your reaction to what you see. Tell me what you learned by watching yourself.
