He has the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. so they will stand out in front of the casting director & make their tape unique from the rest.

I just wanted one lesson as an intro to gymnastics, and Christian is great! Thanks to him I'm more confident with my backflip and with just one more lesson I believe I can get it down. Definitely recommend! I might add gymnastics to one of my hobbies thanks to him.

Christian has a very good way of breaking the concepts down to help me get in fantastic shape! I recommend him for anyone who really loves to workout without knowing your working out.

I'm a professional screenwriter. I've written on both cable and network dramas. And I've sold a feature. I graduated from Film School / Dramatic Writing nine years ago. I'm in the Writers Guild, and have the trifecta of representation. And I've also self-published two collections of one-act plays available on all e-reader platforms.

I'm happy to do consultations on projects you are looking to rewrite or submit to contests. Or if you are just starting out on something new and wants to talk through all the story beats and track it together before you begin a draft.

I can also recommend the best books to read on both the craft and the industry, as well as screenplays and pilots to read (and which ones to avoid).

Learn how to navigate not only the business and landing that first job, but also how to develop a project with a production company, and participate/conduct yourself properly in a TV writer's room.

About Adam

Graduated New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 2007. Majored in Dramatic Writing and minored in English

Adam is a really great listener and excellent source of thought provoking, well timed input that has really helped me develop and improve my story organically without changing its intention with strong suggestions as most people's feedback often attempts to do. If you're looking for a hand in finding your own voice and to strengthen your writing skills or excellent constructive feedback for your story then look no further.
David
Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend.
Shadia
Adam gives you insightful comments on how to make you a better writer. He knows what good dialogue sounds like and with a couple suggestions you instantly know how to re-work your writing to give it a natural flow.
