"I Consider Myself Extremely Lucky" by David LaMorte
I consider myself extremely lucky to have stumbled upon Ryan Tofil's class at MCS. Unlike most new students, I randomly signed up, having no idea what I was getting myself into, I just liked what I read on the MCS website and decided to take the leap.
At the risk of sounding cliche, I still must say that this studio has changed my entire life. Ryan creates such an amazing environment that has allowed me the strength and vulnerability needed to grow as an actor and as a person. I have made so many friends and connections that have enhanced my life and subsequently have enhanced my career as an actor, which was pretty non-existent before joining MCS.
After a year of training with Ryan, I gained enough confidence to start auditioning and have recently finished shooting my first paid gig! I have also booked another film that will be shooting in a couple of months. But it's not just about "acting"; MCS has been the challenge I needed in order to step it up in my life. Like a true game-changer, Ryan's class is a catalyst for an improved well-being.
I wish I could explain it in a way so that other people could see how much impact that "telling your truth" and "getting out of your head" could have, but I think you may just have to see for yourself!
