With The Technique(TM), Joan has created a revolutionary new approach to writing, directing and acting craft which takes on Hollywood's outmoded story models and asks, "What happens when we take out all the fighting and all the fucking?" Joan questions our addictions to conflict-based narratives and instead reveals a new paradigm for storytelling that embraces action, feeling and meaning.

As a master of film and episodic craft, Joan believes passionately in the power of story. "I believe human beings crave authentic connection to themselves and others - and find it in stories that are daring, real, and true to the heart. From this root, I am compelled to bring about stories that inspire life."

Joan's visionary filmmaking workshops are unique in their exploration of all the art forms involved in filmmaking, from a deep study of character, story and script, to liberating and illuminating scene work with actors, to the investigation of visual personality of the film. The workshop provides practical but profound tools for finding the essence of each aspect of the film, and maximizing it for its strongest, most realized expression. Director Niki Caro said of Joan, "She brings insight and clarity to every project she works on. She has a deep understanding of the architecture of a story and is as rigorous with structure as she is with character. She is an invaluable partner. Working with her is thrilling."

A theatre actress since the age of three, Joan performed with some of the country's most visionary stage directors including Anne Bogart and Joanne Akalaitis. Joan has played over twenty leading roles at such theaters as the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall and Joseph Papp's Public Theatre. Her performances have been hailed as "visceral and vivid" by the New York Times, "powerful...tantalizing" by the Boston Globe, and the Village Voice "admitted to being stunned, laid out and shattered" by her work.

As a theatre director, Scheckel staged Pirandello's: I'm Dreaming...But Am I? at the Evidence Room Theatre; Gillian Plowman's: Me and My Friend at The Los Angeles Theatre Center; and Strindberg's: Miss Julie on a sound stage at Warner Hollywood. It was in this arena that Scheckel refined her ideas about a new approach to directing, and the workshop was born.

Joan immediately gained support from the Sundance Institute and Film Independent (FIND). Within a few short years Joan and her technique were internationally recognized, with invitations to give master classes at FIND, the Writer's Guild Screenwriting Conference, the Vancouver International Film Festival, Australia's SPAA/Writer's Guild Conference, and New Zealand's SPADA conference. Her labs in Vancouver, Berlin, Amsterdam, Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne, Sydney, Los Angeles, and New York City have attracted thousands of participants.

Currently Joan is writing her first book on The Technique(TM). In 2015 she premiered her first solo show of Photographs, "Feel This", curated by Chivas Clem. Her photography, developed through the rigorous feeling work in the lab, are on view throughout this site. The deep intimacy and fearless revelation of authentic feeling is palpable in these sensual and provocative images. It is with great gratitude to all of her collaborators that these photos appear on this website.

With her reputation as a master of film craft firmly established, Scheckel believes passionately in the power of film: "A great actor, a great director must find the courage and ability to reveal the consciousness of the story as well as the complex reality of a character. To do that, we must first connect to feeling, emotional depth, and to the music and rhythm of story. I workshop films from this point of view. A vital cinema illuminates life."

The Perilhettes were noted to be the most talented group to come along in the previous couple of decades, and were awarded the production of an album at a pro recording studio. Genevieve went on to study acting and singing with a concentration in musical theater at the acclaimed drama program at Syracuse University, earning a BFA in Musical Theater.

Upon graduation, she returned home to NYC and, where most of her friends were landing roles in, and even producing, Broadway shows, as well as roles in TV shows and films, Genevieve became a client at one of the leading talent agencies in the country, J. Michael Bloom, who started sending her on auditions for TV commercials. Genevieve booked the very first audition she attended - a national network Wendy's TV commercial opposite Dave Thomas, which launched her prolific commercial career. This spot turned into 12 more national TV commercials for Wendy's with Dave Thomas over the next 3 years, sometimes filming on a sound stage set at Silver Cup Studios in NYC and sometimes at North Miami Studios in Florida where Dave Thomas spent his winters.

Three years into being a full time, working commercial TV actor, Genevieve left J. Michael Bloom and joined the renowned talent agency Cunningham, Escott, Slevin and Dougherty (then CED, now CESD) in NYC, where she went on to book principal roles in 20 more national network and 5 more regional TV commercials, including Wellbutrin XL, Morgan Stanley, Dawn Liquid Detergent, Volkswagen, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Verizon, Advil, HIP of NY, University of Pittsburg Medical Center. A few years into booking all these TV commercials as an actor, casting directors began to ask for Genevieve to audition for voice over work as well, and she booked the 6th audition she attended in the first week, a radio spot for The NY Times, and thus began her voice over career for the past 16 years, in thousands of TV and radio commercials and TV network promos, medical narrations and even the voice inside of a toy. Meantime, Genevieve performed singing and acting roles in off-Broadway plays and musicals, including with the Shakespearian group Moonwork in NYC, and she has sung with several bands.

Genevieve's mom Mary Ann is a Juilliard and Manhattan School of Music trained opera singer, musical theater singer and actress, having performed in many operas with the Ruffino Opera Company and at Town Hall in NYC, as leading roles in dozens of musicals from Broadway national tours, such as Kiss of the Spider Woman, to productions at many prominent regional theaters around the country. Her mom also has performed guest parts in hundreds of films, TV soap operas and late night talk shows, such as Dave's diner waitress on Late Show with David Letterman and Madeleine Albright on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

Genevieve's dad Martin, aka Ted (deceased) was a prominent portrait painter and President of the Salmagundi Club in NYC, the oldest artists club in the country.

Genevieve's sister Erika also performed on Broadway, such as Jekkyl and Hyde, and in leading roles in national tours, such as Tommy, and at regional theaters, such as Papermill Playhouse.

Erika's husband (Genevieve's brother-in-law), Peter Saraf, is the Chair of the Producers Guild East and the Vice President of the Producers Guild of America. Peter co-founded with Marc Turtletaub the film production company Big Beach Films, where they have made wonderful films such as Little Miss Sunshine (Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Alan Arkin, Greg Kinear, Paul Dano, Abigail Breslin), About Ray (Susan Sarrandon, Naomi Watts, Elle Fanning), Our Idiot Brother (Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel), Away We Go, Kings of Summer, Safety Not Guaranteed (Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass), Everything Is Illuminated (Elijah Wood, Jonathan Safran Foer, Liev Schreiber), Jack Goes Boating (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Ryan, John Ortiz, Daphne Rubin-Vega), Sunshine Cleaning (Amy Adams, Emily Blunt, Alan Arkin), Is Anybody There? (Michael Caine), Me Him Her. Prior to that, Peter produced with dear friend Jonathan Demme at Clinica Estetica, where he produced Ulee's Gold (Peter Fonda), Adaptation (Nicholas Cage, Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper, Spike Jonze), The Truth About Charlie (Mark Wahlberg, Thandie Newton, Tim Robbins. Peter also produced an Academy Award nominated documentary on Mandela, called Mandela, plus a documentary the Agonomist about radio journalist and human rights activist, Jean Dominique, in Haiti.

As an actor, Genevieve was the principal on-camera actor in 35 national television commercials in a span of 13 years, including Wendy's, Wellbutrin XL, Morgan Stanley, Burger King, Leap Frog, Olive Garden, Advil, Master Card, Volkswagen, Pizza Hut, Dawn Liquid Detergent, 24 Hour Fitness & Zyrtec. She has worked with Academy Award, Cio Award, Golden Lion Award winning directors including Janusz Kaminski, Bob Giraldi, James Gartner and Stan Schofield. She was a proud member of unions SAG and AFTRA and a client at leading talent agency Cunningham, Escott, Slevin and Dougherty for 13 years.

As a professional singer, Genevieve has had a wide range, from soprano to mezzo to alto, and sings styles from folk to rock to classic rock to western cowboy to pop. As the daughter of a Juilliard-trained opera singer and Broadway singer/actress, music came naturally to her. Genevieve performed in jazz ensembles, a cappella groups, musicals, plays and in several bands in New York City for 20 years before moving out to southern Utah. She has been singing, playing guitar and percussion in the popular band Ron and Genevieve, in which she has performed weekly for thousands of international tourists at the Canyon Collections of hotels in southern Utah, as well as at annual events and festivals, including Western Legends Round-Up and the Grand-2-Grand Ultra Footrace. As a musical and creative person, her ear has always been exceptional and, therefore, she has heard subtle differences in her voice over reads, giving a wide variety of reads, has understandood timing intuitively and has been able to work with music well.

His Uncle was a stunt pilot (It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World, The Flight of the Phoenix,) and Walt Disney's private pilot and family friend. His architect brother was a set designer for Universal during the 1970's. Christian's love for film began early. In Cambridge, UK, he saw a Movie poster outside a cinema and exclaimed, as a four year old "A Rhinoceros killing a tank!!!" (Hatari) But it would take decades of slow growth before he would enter the film industry as a professional. Success as a Fine artist/portrait artist would teach him how to frame shots and about lighting. Told in his early twenties that he "wrote like Woody Allen," he wrote his first script and got it read by George Folsey Jr. (American Werewolf in London) at CAA. Married in 2001 to actress Carolyn Bardwell (CeCe Christian) he began to see his passion was film and signed up to do three years of extra work to learn how professionals make movies. Front row on Million Dollar Baby; in the audience on Little Miss Sunshine, meeting Cameron Crowe on Elizabethtown, he worked on 150 different productions between 2003 and 2006. A decade of small pitch trailers, short films and spec commercials taught him how to produce and direct as he wrote ten feature scripts and got a Lit agent. 2011 saw him audition for Ben Affleck-and get the job, as the hand double/sketch artist on ARGO. (uncredited) Divorced in 2012 but still close to CeCe, the two began re-writing her auto biopic "7 Attempts to L.A./CinderL.A". in Hollywood in 2014. 2015 see's the project exploding with potential as they shoot a pitch trailer, reach out to A-list actors and seek financing.
