TESTIMONIALS

César helped direct me through a self tape at home under not ideal circumstances: Night time, didn’t have a good light… and I booked the guest star role on an NBC sitcom!

— Laura Patalano (Gentefied on Netflix, Victor & Valentino, The L Word)


César has always been my goto for self-taping my auditions. Being a Meisner trained actor, he knows how to direct me and make interesting acting choices. He’s an “actor’s director” plus he’s a technical wiz.

-Michael Nouri (Yellowstone on Paramount+, Damages, Flashdance)


Ces filmed and directed one of my original characters (Sunbrella) which helped lead me to booking a series regular on MadTV. He knows how to find and bring out my acting strengths and make the right acting choices.

César has helped me over the years with many auditions and has improved the quality of my self-tapes immensely. I’m a Meisner actor by nature and lean heavily on working off the other actor, which can be tricky in a self-tape. Ces helped me get rooted into my own performance and find ways to work off the material and the reader, and the improvement is easy to see when I watch my newer auditions. I’d recommend Ces to anyone looking to get an edge on self-tape submissions.

-Victor Salvatore (Burn Notice)


I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cesar many times in numerous sketches as well as an entire series that he and his wife created. Every time we’ve collaborated, they’ve created a fun, safe atmosphere to play in that’s allowed me as the actor to make bold, creative choices and play around with improv. It’s a blessing to work with another Meisner trained actor who knows what it’s like in front of the lens as well as behind. It’s also important to note that when they enjoy working with you, they bring you back time and time again.
