“C-Me-Acting is a terrific program for French actors looking to flex their English language acting muscles.  As a director it was also a great opportunity to discover and work with French acting talent I didn’t know and in a way that I hope both encouraged them and also gave me a a chance to test out some scenes I had not seen worked on before.  The level of talent was impressive; to the extent that I was able to recommend that UK agents take a look at some of the actors in my group, some of whom gained representation in London as a result.  It was in every way a rewarding experience, an entente très cordiale!  I would do it again at the drop of a hat”

"As the classical musicians do their scales, I find it essential that actors and directors do theirs. It is so rewarding to see how a text can take unexpected turns and discover springs that we had not even imagined. C and Me Acting internships are an opportunity to meet extra and learn to build a scene with different personalities every time. Thanks to Elise, Sabine, Christophe and Juliette for their hospitality."

"A very dynamic and competent management team serving trainees serious and motivated actors; I was seduced by the enthusiasm and professionalism of all the speakers, both on the side of C M Acting’s team and the comedians met. I would love to repeat the experience and I can only recommend them."

HERVE RENOH
Film Director

"I have participated in many of your masterclasses and each time I have been struck by the investment and professionalism of the actors, the quality of their preparation for their scenes and the fact that their inspiration and nature are put into practice. I rediscovered scripts and situations that I had already worked on, reinvented by them in many new ways. Obviously an amazing atmosphere and a very fruitful working system, where I also learn at the same time as the actors I directed … Like when I shoot “for real”..

"I had a lot of fun with the actors chosen for C Acting’s masterclass.” Rich, sensitive, extremely attentive and great listening skills which are very rewarding when the work is also reciprocated and direct. The actors in this group have brought me a lot too."

SOPHIE FILLIERES

Film director

"I worked with a group of 18 highly talented actors. They had learned their allotted scenes and had had chance to think about them in the two days leading up to my workshop on « acting for camera ». They were all prepared to work hard and to be flexible in their response to direction. They were a joy to work with.

The support systems were excellent both in looking after me personally and in supporting me as I worked with the actors. The DOP was very good and adapted to different ways of shooting the scenes.

I had a great day and would be more than happy to return and can highly recommend the organisation to other directors and teachers."

"An intensive and unforgettable training course. Three weeks is really the time to immerse yourself in a work situation and to make real encounters. The choice of speakers is remarkable, and alternating casting / directors is the top to test its listening quality and its flexibility. The accent coaching adapted to all levels, gives a true self-confidence. Not to mention the speed-meeting that was the innovative and totally successful experience of this course. The generosity of Elise, Sabine and Juliet set the tone and do the rest. This is the complete course that is not chosen by chance!"
