“A totally transformative experience that has made me a much better actor.
If you’re serious about getting to the essence of who you are as a person—
and as an actor, I highly recommend the Sam Christensen Imaging Process.”
-Mark Pettit, Actor
Why do you need four days?
The problem is there is a disconnect between what YOU know to be true about YOURSELF, and the IMAGE you project to OTHERS. You hide parts of yourself, showcase other parts, and aren't even aware of certain qualities or traits that others see in you. Add to that the fact that Society has not given you permission to engage your full authentic self, and social media has encouraged many of us to curate an online persona that is often times not an authentic representation of our true self.
So, we walk you through many different exercises over the 4 days that have been specifically developed through decades of research to generate a comprehensive description of YOU that combines both your inner knowledge of yourself and the outer knowledge provided by your fellow classmates.
The result of this work is that you will be able to bridge that gap between the inner and outer YOU, thus increasing your AUTHENTICITY. The tools you walk away with will help you find a new approach to your auditions**, marketing tools (headshots, resumes, reels, websites), and even how you interact with others on a daily basis.
What's the Class size?
We have found that 6-10 students is the sweet spot, but if demand is high we may push it to 12.
How many hours am I in class?
We call it an "Intensive" for a reason. You will be spending a significant part of each day either in class or doing outside work. Here's a basic breakdown of the time commitment.
Morning Session: 10am - 1pm
Afternoon Session: 2pm - 5pm
Morning Session: 10am - 1pm
Afternoon Consultation: 30min personal consultation with one of the facilitators
Morning Session: 11am - 1pm
Afternoon Consultation: One hour personal consultation with one of the facilitators
Afternoon Session: 1pm - 6pm
You will also have homework to do outside of class on Friday and Saturday evening. All told, you'll be devoting over 20 hours of your weekend to us!
Okay, so what's the investment?
Many workshops in Atlanta average out to more than $100 per hour. If we matched that, then 20 hours would equal $2000. YIKES!
But don't worry! When Sam first brought the workshop to Atlanta in 2011, he offered the Intensive for a discounted price of $695, and never raised the price in 8 years. And even better news is that we have discounted the price even further!
In-person workshops in Atlanta: $595
Virtual workshops hosted over Zoom: $545
You only need to put a $50 deposit down to reserve your spot, and we will work out a payment plan for up to 6 months with no interest!

We encourage anyone interested in the Intensive to come to our periodic FREE PREVIEW night. We will give you the history on how the process was created by Sam Christensen and Ken Cortland, and why we think it's so important to your development as an actor** and a human :)
Next FREE PREVIEW
TBD (via Zoom)
**NOTE: Although this workshop tends to attract mostly performers, the work is not specific to any one industry and can be just as impactful whether you're an artist, entrepreneur, working professional, student, stay-at-home parent, athlete, or any other human.
How well do you know
your own Identity?
"Just Be Yourself."
We've all been told this at some point in our lives. Oftentimes it confuses us, because we think "I was being myself." So what's the issue? Well, your internal perception of yourself doesn't always match how the world experiences you. And if you don't come to understand this difference and the implications, you miss out on being your full AUTHENTIC SELF.
The Sam Christensen Image Workshop is a Four Day Weekend Intensive designed to bring out the authentic self in each of the workshop participants. This proprietary process originated in Los Angeles over 3 decades ago, and came to Atlanta in 2011. The Intensive is now facilitated by Brooke Jaye Taylor and Matthew Cornwell at our Get Taped studio (and also over Zoom). Before you read on, we invite you to start with this video:
