"I think your class ROCKS and I am so glad I took it. You have such a positive way of saying things and you are so good at talking to actors. You never belittle, only encourage. Believe me, that is rare. Extremely.Thank you."
"I can't tell you enough how much I've enjoyed your classes. The feedback and adjustments that you've given, not only to me but to everyone, are sooooo insightful. You have helped me to get to another level.... thank you! My wife who has seen or read most of my scenes from your classes as well as past classes that I've taken at AC said "SHE GETS YOU!". She knows the scenes that you have given me are the kinds of scenes and characters that I want to play. So, thank you for 'GETTING ME!' "
"I just wanted to thank you for your class. I learned SOOOOO much. I am very green when it comes to film and I'm glad I was able to see myself on camera and I picked up so much watching you direct others and having you direct me. Also, I want to thank you for being so human and open with your thoughts on the business. I've recommended you to all my friends."
"Thank you so much for a great five weeks of class! I learned a lot, and certainly appreciated (and thoroughly enjoyed) your honest...enthusiasm. You speak an "acting language" I really understand, and I left each class with a more specific approach to my work, which only makes me feel more excited and prepared for auditons to come. Thank you!"
"Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed Brette Goldstein's "Indie Film Intensive" at Actors Connection. Brette truly has a special knack for creating a supportive, inspiring and fun environment to work and learn in...I guarantee that everyone who takes a class with Brette will learn something about themselves as an actor. Thank you for this opportunity!"

"Brette's fantastic at typing actors and helping them to key into who they are and how they are perceived. I loved that I got full scripts not just scenes, so I really felt that it was more like the actual audition process. She's also excellent at coaching and fine tuning your scene to perfect the audition. Her down to earth, no-nonsense description of the indie film business was immensely helpful and I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in indies!"
- Kristen Riley
"I've really learned a lot in your class over the past few weeks... have gotten a lot out of it and you have a great knack (whether it comes naturally or you try and create such an ambiance) for helping to create a great safe and exploratory learning space for your participants=US! Thanks so much for your enthusiasm, realness and comedy provided along the way...it was a super cool experience!"
- Kristin Pilgreen
"Brette Goldstein's workshop was a trememdous expoerience. She takes all her industry, casting and acting knowledge and and generously presents it to her class in an energetic, caring, smart, funny and thoughtful way that is uniquely Brette. Her honest critique is given with such love, support and guidance that you have no choice but to walk away a better on-camera actor no matter where you started. Oh, yes, and she is LOL funny, too!"
