SHiELDS Academy - May 2023

Spring has sprung....welcome to May everyone!

I hope you all absorbed all the fabulous information from our wonderful coaches this month. It was great to see you all immerse yourselves in those scripts. I'm very much looking forward to seeing your tapes for this months home task too.

(Just so you know, sometimes casting directors do ask if i have any footage and on occasion, if I felt it would do you justice, I do show them your tapes! So give it you full attention and love : )

So...if you look in your Academy booklet, you'll see we had this month down asa focus on 'Commercials'.

However, following your individual progress last month, I wan't to keep this momentum and focus on more scripts and naturalism, which we will continue next month too (along with some commercial extras in there!)

I'm excited to say that this Friday, you'll be working with the wonderful actress, Momo Yeung.

Momo has heaps of experience and knowledge to share with you all. Her screen credits include Marvels feature film Dr Strange, Jingle Jangle and TV Series such as The Sandman, Heartstopper, Theodosia and Tell Me Everything.

Momo will be working online with you and covering scripts from Netlfix Series 'Wednesday' and TV Series 'Normal People' for our older group.

Please see the scripts and instructions attached below...

IMPORTANT: Check the times below...I am combining classes as I'd like all ages to work together this month. You can all learn from each other : )

Have a great month,

J x
