I have studied with Kristen for about 9 months now and she has laid out the steps to keep climbing to the next level.. and loving the work... amazing! It begins with the Headshot and the process to make sure you have the best headshot. Then the resume, then the training; Marketing, Monologue, Auditioning technique, Scene Study. It is all sooooo important to make sure, we in Atlanta, can compete, at the highest levels. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kristen and Blueprint4Hollywood!

This acting school has not 1 but 2 phenomenal acting coaches. I've been taking acting classes with Kristen Shaw since June 2009 and she is responsible for referring me to an agent and giving me the confidence in the audition room. The second coach, Zadia Ife, came here from Los Angeles in June and has rocked my world every since. Her acting level 1 class and monologue class are the refreshers I needed to get everything I can out of a role. I majored in theatre at UNA and loved acting then but didn't get to specialize in it. I feel I am making up for that here at Blueprint and I am so very thankful for how much they have helped me!

Jumping into the unknown world of acting leaves even the most brilliant artist searching for a starting point. Yet, today, we have a place like B4H to lead and guide the aspiring artist- to cover every aspect that we can control, hence, leaving our chances of success so much greater. Whether you are an ordinary one with extraordinary dreams, or a successful actor ready to challenge an even greater height- this is the place to be! =]
Kristen is such a treasure to have here in Atlanta. I've learned so much about how to approach auditions. It's been a great transition as I move into more film from a theater background - and best of all - I've noticeably been cast more since taking these classes. Thanks for being in Atlanta!
I love Kristen Shaw! I've been doing this for a while and had gotten a little rusty with the auditions. Then I started studying with her, and she not only helped me get my groove back, but is teaching me new things that are helping me in every area of this business.
