Private Film Acting Teacher

I've been fortunate enough to study with some of the top acting coaches and teachers around the world! This has given me a unique arsenal of “actor’s tools” that I’m happy to share with you. I love helping actors get extreme clarity on a scene and their character in record time. I also give you fun, fast, tips and tricks on character discovery, memorization, on-camera techniques and audition mastery that you can use for a lifetime. Whether it’s for an audition, agent or manager reading or casting director meet and greet, I love helping actors bring scenes to life in ways they hadn’t thought of before!

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

Just had my first lesson with Hunter and I really enjoyed it. Although I was nervous trying out acting for the first time, she made me feel comfortable. We did some script reading and warming up word exercises that helped. I look forward to my next lesson with her.
