Effective techniques to calm your nerves, maintain your focus, and nail those one-liners!
Face your fears and transform your nervous energy into success! This unique workshop will equip you with the tools to manage and cope with your anxiety that shows up for auditions and performances.

AUDITION ANXIETY & ONE LINERS
Working with the uber-talented and compelling Gugu Mbatha-Raw was a career-highlight for Veenu.
DIFFERENT THAN BEFORE - MUSIC VIDEO
Mayumi Yoshida directed this heartfelt video to accompany Amanda Sum's gorgeous song. An important anti-racism video that Veenu was thrilled to be a part of.
Veenu totally fan-girled when meeting Camryn Manheim and was overjoyed to work with her.
If you hit a wrong note, it's the next note that decides if it's good or bad. - Miles Davis
Ever since she was cast as the Lead Witch in Macbeth - for Kids, Veenu never wanted to do anything else but act. She tried very hard to live a conventional life and do as she was told, but her heart pulled her to Vancouver, BC in 2006 and her acting career began to sprout.
After growing her career over the past decade or so, Veenu has multiple credits; most notably her recurring role as Prisha in the highly-acclaimed Netflix series Lost in Space. She has worked on other acclaimed projects including A Million Little Things (ABC), Supernatural (CW), Surface (Apple+), and the feature film A Dog's Way Home.
Veenu is keen to share the knowledge she has gained since she started in the industry with new actors. She currently is an instructor at Vancouver Film School & also coaches actors privately. For more information about her workshops, please see the Audition Anxiety Workshop section of this page.

Veenu has so much insight and knowledge when it comes to Audition Anxiety. Using the tools she taught me I now walk into my auditions feeling as confident as I can be. I recommend her class to everyone but especially to those who feel nerves are keeping them from being their fullest self in the room. Thank you Veenu!
