Actors: What do you need to do to hone your skills & book work? Acting Coach and Actor Trinity Wright shares her tips.
Trinity Wright discovered her passion for acting and modeling at a very young age. She signed with her first agency at 8 years old and began doing commercial print work for companies such as Levi Jeans, The Children’s Place, and Chocolate Soup Clothing. As she got older Trinity shifted her focus to acting and was honored to be one of the youngest reoccurring cast members for several local theater groups. She began taking any acting classes or workshops that were available to develop her craft. Trinity had several lead roles in her high school plays and musicals while also spending weekends performing for the Shakespearean Scenario Group at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival.
Trinity relocated to Charlotte about 4 years years ago to continue pursing her dream of acting. Her most recent work includes Johnny Knoxville’s Bad Grandma, principle roles in the short films "White Hell" and "The Hunt", and principle roles for Volkswagen, Elevation Church, NASCAR, and Sona Med Spa.

Carolina Film Community Presents: The Business of Voiceover with Voiceover Professional, Lisa Biggs
From Tot to Tween to Sweet Sixteen…
Lisa Biggs speaks Kid.
Lisa’s voice has elicited teasing and nicknames like “squeaky” since grade school. Even as a sophomore in college, after giving an oral presentation in sociology class, her professor approached her privately to say, "Your presentation was great, but you know if anybody is going to take you seriously in the real world you're going to have to do something about your voice”. And that’s exactly what Lisa did.
Lisa Biggs is a seasoned voice-actor who has been in the industry for the greater part of ten years--living and working in both New York City as well as Los Angeles. Clients have called Lisa “the one take wonder” and she has developed and mastered a wide range of signature sounds that kids relate to and parents respond to. She has a home studio and is available anywhere via ISDN.
When Lisa is not behind the mic, she enjoys making guacamole, learning to play the banjo and teaching acting to a very special group of students at the Frazee Dream Center.
