As a professional actor, I initially struggled with obtaining a certain level of sucess. I have gone to other workshops that have not produced sustainable result. After attending the Art 8 workshop, I began to reshape my approach. This has led me to feel more confident and as a result, achieve more sucess. This workshop was a great tool for helping me move to the top of my game.


I absolutely loved this movie. It was filled with fun, innocence and some amazing music and most importantly, it tells a story about love and family. I would say that this movie played like my favorite music playlist. I can watch it over and over again. Sometimes you just want to see a lighthearted movie that is strictly for enjoyment.
