I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed the Showcase. Once I did the one-on-ones, my entire perspective and outlook changed. I understood the full circle process, and it became exhilarating. I felt high, I felt rev’d. I couldn’t believe it. It was so powerful for me that it turned me 180 degrees, and made me realize that next time will be different. I won’t be nearly as afraid (I was truly really scared to death!). I will still be nervous of course, but I now have an “I can do this” feeling and attitude. Like this is possible for me. I am grateful to you and enjoyed the Showcase very much (once I saw the light that is! LOL). I was in awe and inspired by all my fellow actors – who did nothing but encourage and support – people I didn’t even know! I loved them all! The after showcase gathering was the icing on the cake. It brought it all together and I loved every minute of it. Wow I just loved all those people.
Thank you for everything Lau. I’m very happy to have met you and to know you. You’re an incredible coach, and I could see that also full circle on Monday. I was awe inspired by you. You’re amazing.
-Karen MacCracken, Voice Over & Acting Talent
I worked with Lau and her staff every week for several months in preparation for her New England Talent Showcase that she held this past April, where I performed a monologue in front of numerous casting directors, filmmakers, and other professionals in the media industry. I went through the whole process of selecting, editing, and rehearsing a monologue that was right for me. In addition, Lau provided great feedback, helped me with auditioning, and we even worked on voiceovers. Lau and her staff taught me both the rudiments of acting, as well as more nuanced techniques and the importance of marketing yourself. As a result, I booked various gigs and was able to find new representation. I highly recommend lau laupides company.
-Maria Scenna, Actor Talent
I would like to thank you all for the hard work you, passion, and professionalism you had yesterday during the event. I am sure you are all tired, but also excited, after the success. It was for sure an interesting and valuable experience.I truly appreciate your candor and honesty.
