Positive Feedback for Margaret's Actor Demo / Media Check Up:

"First off, thank you again for a great class at Actor's Connection. I can honestly say that your media check up has been one of the most useful events I've attended so far." 
-Recent 2021 participant

"I just wanted to say that the MEDIA CHECK-UP class with Margaret Emory was very helpful since it was nice to have someone in the industry provide feedback on existing actor's media and how it might be improved.  It was interesting going over each participant's media while listening to Margaret answer their questions about their current headshots, demo reel, resume format, and/or website layout.  Thanks for offering this new class!"
-Raymond Kwai

"It was such a pleasure to be able to go over my materials with you last night. You were such a delight! I've updated my demo reel as suggested."
-Stephanie Terrero

"So great to meet and work with you on Wednesday night. It was fun, extremely helpful, and invigorating. Thank you for your honest and actionable feedback. I’m excited! - I've begun editing on the puppet video, and found a breakdown from Nickelodeon yesterday requiring one." 
-Wayne Henry

"I just wanted to email and say thank you so much for the class last night on Actors Connection! It was so helpful to hear your feedback on my website and reel, as well as others’."
-Hannah McGovern Gross

"Early on, after my decision to seriously pursue acting about six years ago, I read an important book. I remember clearly how it articulated what we know to be true, but often forget: actors must be resilient and learn to value constructive feedback from reliable sources. That was, of course, from “Ask an Agent.”  It was a thrill for me to get that very kind of constructive feedback from you this week on the Actors Connection workshop. I am re-cutting my reel with the suggestions you made."
-Polly Kreisman
