    QK was efficient and professional. I have not only used QK multiple times, but have happily recommended them to many of my friends!

  • Victoria Guthrie

    Q is very on point with details: script analysis,beats, lighting and what looks good on camera. She works with you for whatever amount of time it takes to get the best from the piece and your performance, I highly recommend her.

  • Justine S. Harrison

    She is very well prepared for the sessions and helps give good feedback for the audition and the character. She also has a good lighting and background setup.

  • Kathy-Ann Hart

    Q very quickly tied my truth to the character's truth. In 30 minutes we got to an authentic performance to present as my self tape. Powerful!
