Also known as voice-over. Any time you hear the voice, but do not see the face connected to it. The unseen announcer, animations, supplying the voice for another actor.

So much of communication on stage, or in TV or film is done with body language, facial expressions, movements, actions, and voice to tell the story. A voice-over artist has to do it all with just her voice.

I have had the best time learning how to sing with Susan! She is so patient and kind, and has such a great way of helping me actually visualize how I can make corrections in my singing. It has been such a pleasure and is a real highlight of my week. And--bonus--I have really progressed!

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.

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.

I teach movement from a holistic perspective. My approach marries theory, musicianship, and technique with the emotional engagement and storytelling qualities inherent to good, evocative dancing. Lessons are created and curated for you, your specific goals, physical needs, and learning preferences. If you want to learn how to dance to live music, create exciting footwork patterns, become more flexible, build muscle, get an endorphin rush or simply get your steps in ... I can help!

My students learn not only how to dance Flamenco but how to understand it. I try to make lessons fun and engaging for students of all ages (5+) and abilities (brand new - advanced). My lessons are built around a creating a general movement practice by using the Flamenco style and idiom.

I studied Flamenco for over ten years with the Garcia Dance Studio under the instruction of great teachers such as Laura Garcia, Marissa Urzua, Pamela Laurent, Clara Rodriguez, Roberto Amaral, and Timo Nunez. I have danced

We kept calling him to our table at every opportunity to try to figure out his secrets. We never did! He is so good at what he does! This evening, out of the clear blue, my daughter and I started reminiscing about the cruise we took and the unforgettable magic performances Mushir provided. I googled his name and found him here! It's like MAGIC we found him! I hope you're doing well Mushir! The magic trick you did with your necktie still blows our minds!"

I've definitely improved my acting skills in the months we've been working together; she gives great feedback and really cares about her students, not ONLY in the way of their acting skills. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to get into acting. I started out knowing nothing and I can say 100% that what I know now is largely in part of Kathryn!"
