About your instructor:
Jeremy Carr discovered a love for acting while attending Davidson Fine Arts School in Augusta, GA as a teenager. Always a fan of movies, he worked at a video rental store and spent his free time creating short films and documenting his friends’ skateboarding ventures with a camcorder. Years later, while earning a degree in music, Jeremy played in numerous bands leading to further opportunities on stage and screen. His numerous credits include acting in films and television shows, as well as writing and directing through his production company Patron Saint Films. Jeremy studied the Meisner Acting Technique with Kelley Hinman (a student of Sanford Meisner) and developed as an actor through studio work and private coaching at the Film Actors Studio (Charlotte, NC). Jeremy continues to grow as an actor and teacher through The Actor’s Center.

He is generous and knowledgeable, gifted with the ability to work with a variety of people of differing ages and skill levels. His intelligence and humor are great assets as well!"
