THE FIRST WEEK:
We will discuss your personal preferences for your reel and plan your shoot as you would like it to go and then you will have your work coached and critiqued by director/cinematographer, Gérard Gentil and One on One's executive director Marc Isaacman. You will be given feedback on your material choices, and what to wear that will enhance your look in the way you would like it to.
- your scene/monologue materials
- wardrobe options
- wear your hair the way you plan for the shoot
THE SECOND WEEK:
You will have your make-up done by a professional Make Up Artist who will execute your best on-camera look before filming your materials with Gerard. For women, this means a clean representation of you on your best day. For men, this means you will not look shiny or overly made up while on camera.
