Private Film Acting Teacher

Few film actors were trained for film work, myself included. We had to learn on the job, the set, location or studio. I've always felt this was a great disadvantage in standard training. Over 40 projects on film and TV have given me technical expertise (the hard way). From finding your light, hitting your mark, pickups, sight-lines, and most important pacing your performance for multiple takes and coverage, I will help you master them all so you feel free and confident on your next set, or your 1st one.

Extremely helpful and insightful .
Crystal
Acting is so much more than being a great actor for the role. I was looking for a teacher with a great resume who could also share more about the whole experience. Laurence has been acting for over 25 years has that real experience and longevity in the field. He was warm, encouraging and also challenged me in a great way. I was a bit intimidated at first but he made it fun. Highly recommend!
Tedecia
Laurence is a very insightful, thoughtful and experienced teacher. Having worked in, and studied both film and theatre he has wealth of knowledge to share. Go to him if you have that audition you really want to nail or are feeling like your’ s lost your mojo.

Private Film Acting Teacher

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. T. walked me through a step by step process of creating and producing a film. He did a deep dive into not only each stage but the physiological aspect of the filmmaking process. I highly recommended.

Mr. Tinker is an incredible instructor. He not only provided me insight on different techniques but he gave me confidence to believe in myself. I highly recommend you work with Mr. Tinker.
Emily
DON’T EVER loan LaMarcus Tinker money or invest in his productions as you will never get it back. I loaned him money to put in escrow for a named actor for a film he was producing. Mr. Tinker not only didn’t pay the money back per our contract, he used some of the money for “other things” even though the loan was specifically and only for escrow. Mr. Tinker never communicated to me that the money would be used for something other than what was agreed and never informed me I would not be paid back as per the contract. It wasn’t until I kept pushing him for the money that he admitted he didn’t have it. Several people invested in this production and not one investor has been paid back nor has he informed the investors that he is no longer producing the film. In fact, as of Feb, 2021 he advised some investors that things were proceeding as planned and he was trying to secure actors. This is a complete lie!

Dan arrived 15 minutes early - good sign for the 1st practice !
Matisse (8yrs old) says "he is super good because he explains the notes in a way that I will remember".

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

Julia has been teaching me for quite a while now and she has been the greatest teacher I have had. She has taught me so much in such a little amount of time. She makes me feel comfortable while acting, which I find is an amazing quality for a teacher. She also acknowledges how I feel on certain scenes and takes. She is definitely a great teacher.

"I met Alicia through a school for modeling and acting, my daughter had just started classes there, I had previously submit her application for a short film audition, not affiliated with the school. I was nervous when contacted for the audition, knowing she has no experience, I mentioned her audition to Alicia and my fear, she was so excited for my daughter and was willing to work with her as her acting coach, my daughter not only got the part, I was told her audition was awesome. Alicia coached my daughter only twice before her actual location shoot day, I received so many compliments from the film director and camera crew how well my daughter played her role like a pro, thanks to Alicia. I recommend Alicia to a friend of mine in need of an acting coach for her 5yr old son, she is excited so is her son, he enjoys every minute with his coach. Alicia is the best and will bring out the best in her students."
