I have worked on set as a stand-in and photo double for over six years. From Marvel to CW. I always had to rely on myself for learning set terms. I thought I knew almost everything but there were so many important missing pieces. April’s “Everything you ever wanted to know about SET” class was a godsend. I can’t stress how invaluable the information was to me. I left with a complete picture and information I had always wanted but was too shy to ask for. April is a wonderful teacher!

I thought I knew enough about being on set and what goes on but boy was I surprised when I took April’s intensive!! I had no idea how much more there was to learn that I DIDN’T know! April’s class was not only educational, fun and eye opening but it made me fall in love with movie making all over again!! EVERY actor, novice or veteran SHOULD take this intensive. You won’t be sorry.

Thank goodness for April’s class: Everything you ever wanted to know about SET. I am more confident and prepared for my upcoming bookings. The information is provided in an open, encouraging environment with activities that are both informative and fun. I will be referring to my class materials for years to come.
And on top of it all, April is incredibly kind and passionate about acting. She has the experience and credits to stand behind her knowledge, and she is readily it sharing with us! Get in this class people!
