On arrival in Los Angeles the Learn in the Sun team were so helpful with everything and I do mean everything. If we had any questions, concerns, problems or stuck they were always there to help. It was way more than I expected. We had lunch in Malibu with famous stuntman Gregg Sargeant from Pirates of the Caribbean which was a blast. Next day we started our stunt course with Tim Storm. I have learned things that I have never thought I will learn on this trip. It definitely expanded my skillset as an actress. We have done low falls, wire work and fighting choreography. Those were things I have never done in my life and Tim pushed me hard enough to be able to reach same level as other girls that were on the course with me who had some experience at least in stage fighting. We had VIP tour at Paramount which was absolutely amazing. Tour guide made us feel important, and took us to sets that are not accessible for other tours. It was wonderful. We also had an acting workshop with Katt Shea. It was great to learn a lot of things about my skills as an actress and also learn how to get myself in character quickly and relax. We also had a chance to perform in front of a leading LA casting director Lindsey Baldasare as well as to showcase our skills to 5 top Los Angeles casting agents. We managed to meet many important people on this trip and get great advice from Learn in the Sun, Katt, Tim and others. It has been truly the trip of a lifetime. We got great connections, met great people, and got a free photoshoot with a great photographer and who knows… We might be back on the screen soon, you never know! I really want to thank Learn in the Sun for such a superb course. If you are (or want to be) an actor, you can’t miss out this opportunity. I am sure I will be back next year.
