"This class is awesome and she is a wonderful teacher!"
"Thanks for everything! I had a lot of fun in class and I feel the scenes you gave me pushed me as an actor. You are a wonderful teacher and I hope to work with you again soon!!!"
"I want to thank you for the five fantastic weeks of amazing classes. Thank you for reminding us – that acting is FUN. Never knew screaming and dying can be such an organismic experience. (Ops, TMI) I really appreciate your patience, support, and bottom-less knowledge that you share with us."
"Pamela Kramer's class is my acting secret weapon. After taking her Horror class I booked two back to back Principal Horror roles and TRIPLED my auditions! When I was on set for my first Horror film, the Director said that he could tell I had done Horror before, which I had---IN PAM'S CLASS! By the second day, I became the death scene consultant on set due to my knowledge from all of Pam's exercises. This is no joke. Pamela picks scenes for each actor to work on that they could actually book NOW! No generic scenes but specifically tailored scenes for each actor that helps you grow. Her scenes are challenging and force you to go beyond your comfort zone. The wonderful thing about Pam is that she is so hysterical and warm that you never feel uncomfortable. You actually enjoy being pushed and you LOOK FORWARD to class. I just signed up to take her Horror class for the THIRD time!! How many actors have you heard say that! Pam doesn't just teach actors, she sets them up for a career. She recommends her Horror students to be used in projects and really likes to get to know them as people. The network of people she has provided me with is beyond belief. Pam encourages her classmates to keep in touch. Knowing her has saved me years of struggle in this business. She gives invaluable information about acting and film companies and sets you up for a career in acting. Best of all she is a wonderful person to get to know and will make you smile every time you see her. She has an incredible energy that you can feel in class. I will take every class she teaches! When I go to an audition, Pam's class is the first thing I get asked about. Being able to talk about something that interests the panel gets them to remember me and gets them intrigued. I always gush about how much I love the class and it really helps me engage with the casting department. I KNOW this has helped me BOOK roles!"
"Pamela's horror class is one of my fave classes I've taken. Ever."
"Hi Pam, it's Tuesday and I feel like turning into a werewolf, but there's nowhere to go. Miss you and the class. Had a great time and look forward to doing it again."
"I really enjoyed your class and working with you! I will miss you too and it was wonderful learning with you."
"Thank you Pamela! I had so much fun in this class and the videos of our work being emailed to us each week is such a huge help."
-Mark J. Parker
"I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful class. It was rewarding and a lot of fun, and being able to look at the video clips was a huge help. I'm excited to say that Jenevieve Brewer, Agent, Aboutface from the panel contacted me to have me link my Actors Access and Casting Networks to her so she could submit me for jobs!"
"Just wanted to thank you once again for a great experience. This is the first class that I was actually sad to see end. I appreciate all of your advice and feed back on my work.
I definitely had no idea what I was getting into when I applied for the class, but I have to say, I came out with information pouring out of my ears. There was sooo much to take in and learn, especially in our last class. It was an honor and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to met our guests. I hope that you get the opportunity to continue to teach this class at Actors Connection, it's definitely worth the money."
"You asked that I let you know how the audition for Law and Order: SVU goes. Well, I am extremely proud to say that I booked the role and began filming as of yesterday. It is because of this that I will not be able to attend our next class but I will be returning the following week. You were a great help in me landing this gig as you kicked my ass the last class. I would like to thank you."
"Pamela, it was thrilling to have the chance to work with you over the last six weeks in horror class.....get it? Thrilling :) I think of all the class members, I probably came in with the least knowledge of the genre (other than having watched a few of the classics like Evil Dead and the Omen), so thank you for teaching me not only how to delve deeper into myself for more gripping performances....but also to have an appreciation for several films it would never have occurred to me to watch. You've opened up a whole new chapter for me, and for that I am deeply grateful. I appreciate how lovingly you communicated with everyone in the class when giving constructive feedback - that, to me, is the mark of a wonderful teacher. Someone said it last night, and it's true for me as well - this class was the most fun I've ever taken!"
"I'm glad you liked my scene. Keeping it real and comical at the same time is a tough balance. I have to say you really challenged me with all your selections. I'm keeping all these scenes for my repertoire. I really had to think about each scene and I appreciate you taking the time to find scenes that fit each of us. I am absolutely recommending everyone I meet to take any and all of your classes. All of us were talking at the Diner that we want to make sure there is going to be an advanced class and we all want to learn from you again. Thank you so much for everything!!!!!!!! There are no words."
