Private Film Acting Teacher

I not only am seen as a teacher, but as a mentor as well. The one-on-one relationship that is built between my students and I is priority. I want my students to know that it is 100% okay to try something new and play with it, therefore, I provide a safe and encouraging environment.

It is important to me that my students get the most out of their training. I am a trained and working actor with a BFA in acting for both stage and screen. So whichever you are looking to train in, I can coach you in one or both areas.

Experience: I have directed and stage managed plays and musicals, have had previous experience teaching acting classes, and have been a camp counselor for youth acting camps.

I promise we will have a fun time while working hard!

My daughter took lessons from her a while back. She was simply wonderful. My daughter could not stop talking about how much fun she had working with Jace. She knows lots about who to go to for headshots and how to build a resume as well. I’m so grateful she was able to help my daughter pursue what she loves.
Clara
Having graduated in rigorous BFA acting for stage and screen program , and working in Los Angeles as an actor Jace has a wealth of knowledge about acting as well as the film industry. With her being a working actor she offered me so much insight about what you need to do for an audition as well as how to tweak my monologue to give it more layers. She goes with you step by step and makes you feel confident and safe. She works with you at your level and she made me feel confident going into my audition and self tapes. Seriously, she is so great!

My daughter started a series of lessons with Kristen in preparation of her high school play audition.

I’ve made a life for myself in the creative fields, and I’d like the opportunity to work with you!
I’m an award-winning actor and have Broadway, off-Broadway, Television, Film credits. I am also a playwright, a Drama Desk Nominated Director, and a Producer. Throughout my career, I have always been a teacher, and have helped develop, and nurture the careers of countless young actors and professionals with practical tools to make them better! As a young actor, I was lucky to be trained by an incredible mentor for many years, he instilled in me a deep respect for the art form, and as it should be I impart that knowledge to everyone I teach. I will teach you to be the best actor you can be, that’s a guarantee.
In Los Angeles I coach professional actors, most recently the female lead In Will Smiths Bad Boys III, as well as one of the male principals in the Mark Walberg Film Patriots Day. My process is simple, and yet through. Script analysis, so you know exactly what the material ...

Carlo is an amazing actor and teacher. He teaches you to commit 1000%, and he is always invested in you as a coach/director. No matter what you’re working on in your acting, he will guide you to push the boundaries of what you think you’re capable of, always with a great sense of humor. I can’t recommend him enough!
Charles Burks
Carlo simplifies and reduces the tools of acting which can be very overwhelming into simple and manageable steps. He has a deep respect for the art form and a practical no-nonsense way to help you find the truth in your acting while finding a way to make it dynamic, and help you stand out. I always recommend him, and will continue to do so! His teaching has employed many actors over the least 10+ years
Benjamin
Carlo is truly WOW! His classes are not only deeply insightful, but pure entertainment. He has become my acting mentor. He has changed the way that I approach acting and I owe much of my success to him.

"I absolutely love Kim's acting coaching!

I have been in financial business for many years. Recently, I took a project and need to adapt quickly to play a role in a film within very short time period. I am very lucky to find Kim:

(1) She is well prepared for each lesson. She understood clearly about my objectives;
(2) She gives me lots of valuable tips to improve my acting skills;
(3) She is very quick to grasp the film writer and director's intention for the role;
(4) She pays great attention to every detail of the script to help me to maximize my potential in the role;
(5) She goes above and beyond: she reviews my recording and gives me great feedback after the lesson; she went through multiple scripts within very short time period on her own time;
(6) She is extremely fun to work with;

I just finished my second lesson with Kim. She is not only a great acting coach, but a great actor! She is definitely a go to person in my future film venture!!!"

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."
