I had a great time and learned a ton! Mike was a very thoughtful teacher who helped indentify each students strengths or weaknesses, then build upon those.

I'm so happy I told this class. The class was a hands on immersive experience in creating a film from a short scene. It felt like one week too short. I learned a lot about what aspects of filmmaking I'm interested in and will pursue more thoroughly. Worth the money and time!

I loved doing this! It’s my first time using Course Horse and not my last! I wanted to take this class in college and I couldn’t, now I’m here 20 yrs later! Thanks for this service, truly. The instructor was so great and the day was a dream come true.

So many times, we as actors forget the play of acting. You go into class and everything‰Ûªs like, ‰ÛÏGreat work‰Û: like everything‰Ûªs work. At The Barrow Group, it really came from this other perspective: ‰ÛÏThis is play.‰Û That was a really great time. I would say that was my most significant training.

The Barrow Group was really the institution that taught me how to act. I worked with the best teachers, who taught me why less is really more.

I had a great experience with the Barrow Group‰Ûªs Filmmaking for Actors class. The class helped me to jump start my filmmaking ‰Û÷career‰Ûª with everything from writing all the way to shooting and editing. One of the biggest takeaways for me was what I learned about screenwriting; having always wanted to write this class provided me with the foundations to take ideas and turn them into fully thought out scripts. It also provided me with experience in every aspect of being on set to create a film; giving me the opportunity to do everything from being a boom operator, to script supervisor, to DP, to director. Over the course of 12 weeks I obtained the abilities to start with an idea, turn that into a screenplay and then bring it to life as an original short film. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is serious about creating film.
