"Working with David Vaccari was a great experience. As a prestigious casting director in the business, he truly cares about helping up and coming actors. He was encouraging and willing to push me to create even better choices within my scene work. Through very challenges scenes, he helped me find ways to make them easier and understand how to handle them in an audition situation. Our goals were to make them more detailed & specific which would be compelling enough for a callback. I know with the skills I learned, I will have much more success moving forward in my upcoming auditions. I look forward to using the tips and techniques he taught me."
