Shaun joined The Dirt in 2019 and he hit the ground running. He’s created a new On-Camera Scene Study class and an Online Self-Tape Study.
What People Say About Shaun’s Teaching Style:
Shaun is an invaluable asset to anyone who takes their acting career seriously.
It’s easy to keep training at the same place and get comfortable but the job of the actor is always changing, so Its good to shake things up. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started training with Shaun, but my expectations were blown away immediately!
Shaun is so passionate about teaching acting and it shows. Compared to other classes I have taken, you get a lot of time on-camera, giving you multiple takes to explore as an artist. The class environment is a great place to fail, learn and try new things. Shaun is an invaluable asset to anyone who takes their acting career seriously.Joel Labelle
Taking the Self-Tape Study with Shaun has revolutionized my practice.
Taking the Self Tape Study with Shaun has revolutionized my practise. It has changed the way I think about not only self tapes, but also about my entire process as an actor. I’ve taken 4 or 5 iterations of the Self Tape Study and each time, I grow and discover new things about myself and about my process.
Shaun is an incredible teacher, providing support, listening and challenging you to drop the bullshit. He has a great ability to crack what isn’t working for you in a scene and turn it into something simple, something playable (and fun!).
The biggest take away for me has been how much joy has come into my practise. I no longer feel stressed when I get auditions, and instead have a lot of fun working on the scenes.Christina Fox
The Self-Tape Study he has since created has become an invaluable part of the growth process for my clients, and for my business.
Prior to the arrival of Covid-19 I was recommending Shaun’s Scene Study class to those on my roster who were looking for their next challenge. The Self-Tape Study he has since created has become an invaluable part of the growth process for my clients, and for my business. Trying to keep performers engaged in their craft during an industry shutdown, while everyone is dealing with financial hardship, health concerns, and issues of mental and emotional well-being seemed impossible.
Having a safe and cost-effective option to offer my clients was not only a welcome distraction during dark times, it allowed them to hit the ground running when the work returned.
I have received incredible notes from performers who have worked with Shaun. They continue to take his classes, and reach out to him for private coaching. They are exploring more, and elevating their performance with every tape, and it is a joy to watch.Alicia Faucher (Agent)
