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.

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.

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.

Film scoring has been my ultimate passion since I was 9 years old. I have an MFA in film scoring from Columbia College Chicago. I am currently scoring a few films and teaching lessons on the side. I love teaching! I have many scenes to share with students for them to score. I would talk with students about the scene they're scoring, share tips and focus on style, technique, and emotional content of the scene. I have lots of technology experience, so I can help students learn how to actually turn the music in their heads into a physical recording. I specialize in Logic, ProTools ,and DigitalPerformer but can work with students in Garageband as well.

I have been performing since I was 10 years old and since I started professionally at 14, I've toured in over 15 different countries around the world and done arena tours and festivals. I now have over 150,000 followers online and have performed for millions on TV.

Performance training is extremely important for a singer, even the most experienced artists have coaches their entire lives. I've been teaching young people to sing and perform since 2010 and I'm very keen to continue to see them all grow as artists! My methods vary from person to person as I like to find out their individual goals and go from there, but I usually take the first lesson to get to know them and find out their strengths and weaknesses, and work on a lesson plan that helps them as well as having fun.

I also teach about the business side of performing, how to book gigs and how to build your personal brand. I help students put together shows, with everything from costumes to music to sound systems and ...

I have been in the acting profession for 35 years - primarily Classical Stage and Voice-Over acting. I have taught on many levels and for different ages including workshops for high school students and university level conservatory programs. I have also taught adults in both Shakespeare and group Voice-over classes (at a Professional Studio). I love what I do and love teaching it to others.

At present, I create, preformed and produced my own audio work and have found that it is incredibly beneficial to learn something new or invest time in a subject or skill that you are interested in.

About Corliss

I am an actress that has performed and taught for over 35 years. I love it! I can help you prepare for auditions, study structure, develop skills, get over fears of speaking in public or simply reach a deeper understanding of your favorite texts. As for teaching voice-acting for voice-overs, I

Cathy
I initially had Corliss as a voice over teacher in a class, then decided to further my work with her as a coach and producer to create my voiceover demos. We covered all aspects of voiceover, including the physical: posture, microphone placement, etc., which I believe really enhanced my understanding of how physicality comes across via the voice. With her classical acting background, she was able to help me improve my overall speaking technique and provided me with vocal exercises to help minimize my regionalisms.

She was diligent in reviewing competitive demos to guide me to a variety of written copy and voice/energy levels that will help my demos stand up to those with more experience. She provided valuable advice regarding selection and use of materials for the demo and beyond as well as insights on the voiceover business.

I’m very pleased with the results of the two demos and expect to continue to take advantage of her coaching services as I grow in my new career.
Jenny
Corliss is a master at her craft! She makes you feel comfortable from the moment you meet her and has a genuine interest in your goals. Corliss tailored lessons to my learning style which was very encouraging for someone with my level of experience. She has a lovely personality and her enthusiasm is infectious. I would highly recommend taking lessons from Corliss!
Steve
I took a five-session Beginning Voice Acting class with Corliss in a professional recording studio. The critiques she gave me after every recording I made helped me to speak more clearly, and to increase the energy I was able to put into my recorded presentations. Without the critiques of my recordings, I would not have been able to improve my speaking ability. During the class, she made sure everyone in the class was made to feel welcome, and important. When I take the next level of the Voice Acting class series, I will be looking forward her critiques of my recorded presentations.

Inspiration, motivation and dedication are three important skills to have while learning dance. I begin by figuring out what has inspired my students to start dancing, what motivates them, and then dedicate each lesson to guiding them in the right direction to become the best dancer they can be. I have been teaching for 7 years and love watching students grow and fall more in love with dance. I am experienced in ballet, jazz, hip hop, jazz fusion, contemporary, lyrical, musical theatre and ballroom. I look forward to sharing my love for dance with you!
