Shout out to the amazing Amanda Brooke Lerner!
Needed self tapes for 3 projects in a hurry. No turnaround time.
Amanda helped style and coiff me. Her warm professional manner is soothing, she has great ideas and collaborates beautifully with her clients.
Taping is a chance to create, stretch and push limits. Amanda puts one at ease, never rushes you and makes you feel like a million bucks and cared for. Highly recommend.

I don't post about my self-tapes a lot but I had sooo much fun with Amanda Brooke Lerner filming 3 characters for an audition. Amanda responded to my email VERY last minute and was amazing helping me with coaching, wardrobe & hair.
Definitely “worth the schlep” and highly recommend her services if you need a self tape or resume resurrection 😋💕
3 Characters 🔹 2 Different Takes Each 🔹 3 Wardrobe Changes 🔸 ALL IN.

Appreciative thanks to Amanda Brooke Lerner (who pretty much does it all!) for coaching and filming me for my co-star self-tape (and doing my hair!) for a very big project!
We had so much fun riffing and collaborating and I loved getting her input and insights!
My manager told me I did a great job and looked amazing!
What more could I ask for?
Major love to Amanda Brooke Lerner for helping a girl self-tape 2 very different roles!
Decided to try the Actor & the Biz and just wanted to share how awesome she is!
So grateful this community has given me some kick-ass people to self-tape with.
Amanda is a gem!

All of that in addition to being an amazing coach AND reader! Full service! You are so awesome! I'm so glad you could squeeze me in last weekend! Amanda Brooke Lerner - You're such an amazing person!

Can we talk about Amanda Brooke Lerner for a minute? Not only is she an epically amazing actress, but she's one badass coach and on-camera self-tape guru! I've been meaning to thank this gorgeous & generous soul for awhile! Amanda helped me put 29-pages on tape for a self-tape request!!! Yes, TWENTY NINE! 3 roles. 2 projects. 20 pages for 1 alone.
I didn't book any of those roles...BUT it did prompt the CD of that 20 page project to have me go on tape for 2 roles for House of Cards. We must've done something right. Win the room! Even if you're not in it.
Moral of the story, Amanda is a force of nature! Call upon her for you next coaching or self tape. Amanda Brooke Lerner is the bomb diggity! I'm honored to call this beautiful artist a friend.

Thank you Amanda Brooke Lerner for giving me such a beautiful self-tape experience.
I have been doing theater for over 20 years and Amanda knows how to speak my theater-speak but also knows how to translate what I do on stage to camera in a way that felt so natural, authentic and downright fun.
Amanda has my full trust and respect and is also a glorious human. I will be trusting my work with her again. She is a light among us.

I want to show some deep gratitude to a few of the folks from this group who have been instrumental in my growth this year. Amanda Brooke Lerner prepped me for several auditions and knew how to bring out the best in my work. So good, in fact, that I booked an indie film off a self-tape that everyone else went in person to audition for Boom.
She said I brought something to character she hadn't seen before.
Amanda Brooke Lerner - Thank you again for your work with me - I REALLY love coaching with you! XOXO
-- Vanita Kalra
