"Fixing America"

The 989 Project is proud to announce, in collaboration with Stephen P. Laffey and Stephen T. Skoly, the filming of the feature length documentary Fixing America. Currently in production, Fixing America will raise relevant questions about the state of our country and attempt to get to the core of the issues by speaking with Americans from across the United States.  Discussing not only the problems we are facing, but also the possible solutions that can lead us to a better future, the film will represent opinions ranging from everyday Americans to experts on policy.  

Currently on the road, crew members, including director Anthony Ambrosino (Sleather) and director of photography Jeff Hoffman (The Corporation), are making sure to keep everyone up to date on their progress.  Daily videos can be found at www.fixingamericamovie.com, and help showcase the true vision behind this documentary.  After making their way across the United States, the crew will return back to Rhode Island where post production will commence at The 989 Project's studio with the editor Fred Tindall. 

Make sure you are staying up on the issues and sharing your opinions with us at www.fixingamericamovie.com. To see more work from The 989 Project, visit www.the989project.com.

Acting/Auditioning Classes 


Tuesdays, May 24 - June 14, 2011
5:00 -7:30

RIFC, 172 Exchange St. Pawtucket

Instructor Carolyn Pickman
Guest Instructor TBD

Price: $189 until May 17th $209 after that



 This course addresses the question, "How do I give an exceptional audition?"

Get the call back, book the job - or just learn to work the camera like a pro. Practice and insightful coaching are the keys to improving your ability to work with the camera, and your comfort with it.

Carolyn Pickman brings actual audition material from television commercials, corporate videos, and film scripts. Participants will be videotaped in a mock audition setting at each class. Students will review the videos and learn to prepare, and adjust their performances for the camera, take direction, and learn tricks of the trade - both in auditioning successfully, and in effectively conveying character and presence through the lens of the camera.

Carolyn walks you through auditioning step-by-step, pointing out the pitfalls to avoid and giving an insider's view on what industry pros look for. Students are welcome to repeat this course - different material is always added.
