"When I found BGB, I was searching for something to take my work to another level, a missing ingredient. What I experienced from day one was a room full of unbelievably creative and daring people and I knew this was a unique Studio. This work quickly gave me what I was searching for. The lessons I learned have forever changed the way I approach material. Within a short time of putting this to useI found myself landing the kind of role I had always wanted.”
