We are delighted to announce the completion of the Steve Shill Filming Masterclass series! This vastly experienced, Emmy-winning director of The Sopranos, The Wire, The West Wing & Dexter amongst many others, wrote scenes for and directed our entire over 16 and adult roster of actors. It was an incredible experience for them to work so intimately and creatively with this superb director of so many HBO epics. There will be a red carpet screening of all the work in the Autumn. A huge thank you from us all at Actor Tribe to Steve Shill.
