Shannon Eubanks (Instructor of Acting for the Camera)

B.A. Drama-Speech, Birmingham-Southern College

For over thirty-five years. She's performed on network television for HBO, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, the Disney Channel, Lifetime, and the Family Channel; in feature films for 20th Century Fox, Columbia, Warner Brothers, Lionsgate, and Anchor Bay, and was an award-winning theatre actor/director in Los Angeles for eighteen years, as well as across the United States in regional repertory. With her husband, James Donadio, she has co-written three features, two teleplays, served as a staff writer for the Emmy-winning children's series The Reppies and as a script doctor for King's Road Productions in Los Angeles, and was writer-director of the Shakespeare compendiums Her Infinite Variety and Patchwork Shakespeare for the Shakespeare Society of America/Los Angeles and the California Youth Theatre.

She has taught acting as a Guest Artist at the high school, college, and graduate levels, for the Alabama Shakespeare Festival Conservatory and M.F.A. programs across the country, and as a noted private coach in Los Angeles and now in Atlanta. Her cold reading and camera technique for actors has been developed and refined so as to be suitable for both absolute beginners (for whom it strikes a balance between technical facility and creativity) and working professionals (as it works well in concert with any discipline the performer currently uses).
