Whether you are new to the field, have an audition or callback coming up, want to break in to the American market or you’re just looking to brush up on your skills, my goal is to get you to reach yours. To get you to that next level and for you to start booking those jobs!
We are all story tellers, but to become a successful one training is key. Acting is a craft that requires skills and skills can be learned. They don’t come overnight but with hard work and dedication they will come. If you are willing to put in the work and allow me to assist you in bringing out your hidden potential, the sky is the limit!
Because I am a Casting professional as well as a classically trained Acting Coach, I know the power of play and how to approach a scene, how to analyze a scene, study a character and what is needed from a scene partner and/or reader. But I also know what Casting Directors are looking for and therefore what is needed to book the job. I can assist actors from both the casting as well as the acting point of view.
When coaching I do not follow one specific technique. I have studied many and found that all have something an actor can connect to, it is very personal – what works for Robert DeNiro might not work for you. So, through the years my approach has become a very personalized one. I observe the actor to figure out his or hers specific needs and then coach them using the technique that serves them best. I may not be a fan of method acting, but if that’s the only thing that gets an actor to portray a character that just suffered a major loss, then that is what we will use. It’s all about you, the actor, and what gets you to reach your highest potential!
Some of the projects actors who coached and/or taped with me have booked recently: Venom, Black Panther, Stranger Things, Atlanta, Fifty Shades Freed, The Walking Dead, House of Cards, Vice Principals, How to Get Away With Murder, Baywatch (2017), Better Call Saul, Being Mary Jane, Swamp Murder, Halt and Catch Fire, The Originals, Mr Mercedes, The Haves and Have Not’s.
Sessions are conducted on location or via Skype/FaceTime. All sessions are taped and I will play your performances back to you: watching yourself perform can be very eye-opening and a great tool to tweak the hick-ups in your performance and get it on its way to perfection.
For rates and to set up your first session, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you soon!
