Hello, Indie Creatives! 

In this episode, we have a conversation with the owner of Nashville Acting Studio and Acting Coach extraordinaire Caroline Locorriere. We talk about how she got started as an owner and acting coach, her international adventure coaching Actor Alan Powell on Quantico, how to coach without using emotional terrorism, understanding camera appropriateness, when not to get an agent, and the first three things she would teach any new actor. Enjoy!
