    From: Nancy Lam To: [email protected] Hi Coach Mike! Before I forget, I wanted to send you an email to thank you for the lessons that we have learned in class in Level 1. Between Week 1 and Week 4, I booked four paying jobs, and had one successful game show audition! I really think that success in this industry rides on momentum and the push I got from your classes propelled me forward to submit myself for more jobs, bring positive energy in with me to auditions, and smile through every job. I booked a commercial for Brightcove Videocloud, a print job for Sony, a Short Film and a music video for a new EMI records artist Too Young to Love. I also got a bit of camera time and spending money as an extra sitting next to Jane Lynch on Glee, and got a few seconds on the gameshow Let's Make a Deal. One particular experience that I want to share is from the EMI records audition. It was an improvisational dance audition and I didn't expect to be explicitly using any particular techniques from our class. However, I did remember our classes on audition technique, and waiting room behavior, so I showed up early and ready to be friendly. I ended up arriving early enough to be the first one there and was able to have a more extended conversation with the audition monitor. I started chatting with her about our hometowns, our Los Angeles experiences, etc. It turned out that she was actually the co-producer on the project and over my dance technique, booked me because she liked our conversation and thought I was a cool person! Even better, after the shoot this past Saturday, she told me that she had been offered a directing spot on another project and wants to work with me again! Thank you for your help and positive encouragement. These have been small accomplishments so far, but I know that if I stay focused and barrel ahead, I will see success in the future. I am finishing up my agent submission packages and am hoping to have them ready to be sent out tomorrow! See you in class on Thursday! Best, Nancy Lam
