Recent 2021 projects include: NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE which filmed in Knoxville, Tennessee, STRONG FATHERS, STRONG DAUGHTERS which filmed in Los Angeles, and they are consulting for a film company, PARADOX PICTURES.

Impressively, Lisa London gave the following actors their big break in Hollywood: Emma Stone, Jonah Hill, Yara Shahidi, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Mark Ruffalo, Giovanni Ribisi, Adrian R. Mante and Adam Irigoyen, to name a few.

Currently, Lisa has over 15 projects in pre- and post-production.

Focus of Intensive:
• The class will cover what casting directors are looking for in auditions, the self-taping process, how to get your agent/manager to work best for you, why some people get callbacks and why you need to research a role.
• The intensive includes on-camera audition technique and will include playback as a teaching tool.
• Each participant will get to read for Lisa and receive one-on-one coaching and feedback. Sides will be sent approximately one week to a few days before the class, emulating a real audition.
