I'm a regular at Red's classes and it's good for honing the craft and good for networking.
Here's an exhortation from Red's No. 1 disciple, Forrest Pruett, who tells it like it is:
Have you ever wished that you had an acting professor or acting coach who would just tell it like it is? No bullshit, no over-hyped jargon: just the truth about acting and the life of a performer? Meet Red West.
Red brings his experience as a working actor in film, TV & commercials to the acting classes he has taught for more than 12 years in the Memphis area. Red's strengths as an actor’s coach lie in his strong motivational and disciplined acting technique, including some improvisation, nurturing the actor to reach within himself to achieve his/her own personal best in bringing the character on the scripted page to life
Selected credits include the feature films "Roadhouse," "The Rainmaker," Cookie's Fortune," I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Forty Shades of Blue." His latest triumph is "Glory Road."
Four decades as a paid performer is an amazing achievement for anybody.
