Hello members of Actor's Initiative

Many of the world's finest acting teachers live and work in Los Angeles. These are the people who coach working actors and A-list stars daily. They stand on the shoulders of amazing teachers that came before them and now guide actors to meet the performance demands of today's audience and technology. And the only way to study with them was to move to Hollywood.

Until now!

Attention Actors: 

The Sacramento Screenwriters group is proud to announce our table reading of  "The Eunuch of Nottingham" by Thomas Serio.

Learn about screenwriting, acting and more in an honest to goodness table read w/ actors. The design is to learn how a script works with actors. This exercise improves timing and helps writers and film makers see how their written word plays.

Please make plans to attend this exciting and important exercise.

I cannot wait to expand my knowledge on acting and through these workshops I can better prepare myself.

Many of you may know we are now doing features on members called "CFF Profiles". This is an exciting way for actors, writers or really anyone to advertise what they do to our netork and beyond. Already several of our features have been picked up by the blogs and seen tremendous results.

This Friday at our CFF Mix & Meet in Sacramento we'll be holding a marketing workshop to better help you market yourself. Here's the deal, CFF and the Sacramento Film Festival are not simply interested in screening your film or having you out to meetings. We want to help develop you for professional success. This means marketing. Please come on Friday and see how you can better promote yourself to the world and how our suite of tools can help!

My writing workshop, at the It Factor, begins next Saturday, Aug. 4th, from 10:00 to noon.  We'll meet every other Saturday.  Contact me for more details if you're interested.

Just a reminder to everyone.  I started my acting class at the It Factor last night.  Lots of fun AND, on Saturday (Aug. 4) I'm going to start the writing workshop which will meet every other Saturday.  Give me a holler if you're interested in either class.

I loved speaking last night at the California Film Foundation gathering.  Thanks, Marty, and I hope you had a great B'day.


My only regret was that I didn't have more time.  Feel free to hit me up with questions.  I'm also thinking of putting together my notes into a sort of mini-book (about 18 pages) on screenwriting.  It's very nuts and bolts stuff.  I'll probably offer for some ridiculously low fee.  :-) 

At any rate, I'm here if anyone needs me...either for script consultation or...come join my workshop starting Aug. 4th at the It Factor.  E-mail me at

I'm VERY MUCH looking forward to doing Marty's screenwriting seminar on Friday, July 6th.  Bring LOTS of questions.  I won't have all the answers, but I'll do the best I can.


In the mean time, contact me if you'd like help with your script.  I'm doing special discounts for EVERYONE who mentions Marty OR this web site.



Look forward to seeing all of you.
