Copenhagen Class photos

I really enjoyed teaching in Copenhagen. Hakim Harder did a brilliant job of pulling together a really ace class. Here they are.  I was very satisfied to learn that the five day format works well and thanks to all those who wrote such a nice evaluation of the class. I'm quoting it here:
Thanks so much to Vibeke Hastrup for saying:
"You really make people grow, letting  us play, and have fun and at the same time you give very precise notes to each individual."

Here is a shot of Casper Phillipson and Neija Hansen on the final day. They shot a wickedly funny scene from Euro Trip for their reel.

Thanks to Neija for her comment: 
"I thought Nancy created a safe, spacious and humorous environment for people to play and develop in. The workshop has given me a lot of useful information on how to approach different genres and characters in a casting session."

Casper with Michelle Bercon doing a scene from Before Sunset.
Thanks Casper for saying that the workshop and the "direct advice/critique has been so to the point, so obviously helpful to everybody. It has changed my approach to the casting process and helped rebuild my self confidence- exactly what i was hoping to get from a course like this."

Rikard Svensson is featured reading off camera next to our camera man/director Sohail Hassan.

I also want to thank Soren Rossen for saying "I think that the on camera exercices and scene work, with in between direction and evaluation was what gave me the most to work with and think about."

Thanks to Per for his comment that next time "we need to knwo our fuckability-rate for our homepage

Here's the final party. Do you think they had too much wine?
