The thing that separates me from the rest of the guides you will find on this subject is that my knowledge and experience comes from the Private Security field...specializing in "Undercover/plain clothed" investigations, leading to professional level proficiency in Human Behavior and Psychology.

In my brief existence on earth, somehow, all of my interests, flaws, and experiences fit together like a puzzle and have lead me to the point where I can understand Human Behavior and Psychology fluently....raising me to a life of leadership.

How did I end up directing Actors?  I was searching for a more positive expression for my knowledge while still supporting peoples life goals.  This search dropped me down a rabbit hole of research including method actors, and eventually Stanislavski's system, and the great Uta Hagen which shocked me.... until that very moment my life experiences resembled many aspects of these systems without even knowing they existed.

Since then, I have chosen ...

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

Film scoring lessons are for experienced composers who already have a solid grasp of basics in notation, harmony, form, and instrumentation. Lessons tend to be project-oriented and in this format we will work on various elements including orchestration, music syncing, narrative interpretation, etc. Primary text: On the Track by Karlin & Wright. Lessons are a minimum of 60 minutes once per week. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study as well as bring samples (printed and recorded if possible) of their work.

I've been teaching Acting for 8 years professionally and my students have gone on to be lead roles in feature films, supporting roles in feature films, and cast in stage plays. I am a very hands on teacher. I like to get into the character with the actor. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to dissect and embody a character and as time goes on you'll be able to perform two one-minute monologues for a TV/Film agent. If you already have an agent you will be coached for auditions. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Mr. Tinker was incredible. My son loved his ability to break things down in such away that it took the pressure out the equation and it felt like he was talking to a genuine friend. Mr. Tinker is extremely knowledgeable and very gifted in what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for not only a teacher but a friend and mentor for this industry.
Ashlee G.
Total joke, bad communication! He forgot about our first lesson and then "went out of town" for a month the day before our second. I was so excited to work with him but he does not value his students time. Would not recommend
Ashlee G.
Didn't show up for the first lesson and took a day to get back to me. Then when I rescheduled he cancelled the next 3 lessons. I saved money for the lessons and was very excited to work with him.
