Breaking into Film and Television
with Chris Russell
Every actor has a brand, and every brand has a market.
In this four-week course, actors will come away with a deeper understanding of the film and television business, where they fit, and how to get in front of the right industry folks to thrive - all while learning on-camera and audition technique from a working actor and experienced director.
Chris Russell is an actor, screenwriter, and director. He has been working in the industry for the better part of 10 years. Recent TV credits include Hulu's Wu-Tang: An American Saga, HBO's The Deuce, and NBC's Law and Order: SVU. While working on TV is a gift and a blessing, Chris' true passion lies in creating his own work and coaching actors. He has been on the faculty of MCS for over two years, teaching his 4-week on-camera course, private sessions, and coaching self-tapes. Last summer, he wrote, directed and starred in a six-episode series, Flyering, which features an army of MCS actors (including Coach Matt Corozine) and is available to stream at chrisrussellactor.com/flyering.
