Why I Teach: “I teach to impart what I know to be tried and true principles of the craft of acting for the camera and I remind the actor to access the unlimited choices of their imagination.”
Best Exercise We Do in Class: “Tell me a little about yourself”—on-camera.
What Her Students Say: “Brenna’s encouragement in class and through emails for all of us to start pursuing this work now is really unique. She consistently provided individualized practical advice, and I was really impressed by her investment in our success.”
