“I never thought I could write. Then I took Will-Harris’ workshop and was floored to see how freeing and fun it was to let my imagination take me places I could never have thought of going.” ~Bettina – San Francisco.

“I’m an actor, and wanted to create my own content. But I didn’t think I could write, or know what to write. In just one workshop, Daniel’s method had me creating fascinating characters and stories which I’m now turning into a web series. I recommend his workshop to any actor who wants to create their own work!” ~Katherine K.- Hollywood”
