I give acting lessons and coaching in all aspects of acting, based in the celebrated Meisner Technique, which I've taught for over 30 years. I teach a full technique program for those who want to study the whole system which includes, improvisation, scene work and character work, cold readings, monologue development and much much more. For those who already have experience or are professional actors I offer high-level coaching, taking your auditions to the next level, and working with you on your current scripts and projects to magnify your focus, intentions and behaviors so that you can sharpen your performances to the highest degree. I am experienced in theater, film, tv and commercial work, and have tailored techniques for all of these areas. I've refined cold reading technique so that you can quickly break down a script into essentials and win roles, or even go in completely cold and work super-effectively directly off the script. Super-sharp script breakdowns for film roles, cold readings, monologue performance, and detailed character creation are all specialities of mine that I've worked on with actors for many years. And if you do engage with the full technique program, you will get a clear and effective way of working with every phase of the actor's performance. I am fully available online, and for those who want to work in person locally, I will be reopening my real-world studio in the near future. Film acting sessions include script breakdowns, timeline construction and application, acting for specific shots (two-shot, closeup, etc.), rehearsing shots on set, preparation for shots and scenes, preparing for multiple takes, varied takes, taking direction from a film director, improvisation for film roles, specific focus points on-camera, how to change up on takes to adapt to the director, micro-behavior to give a more detailed film performance, creating a role for film, creating a specific character for film.
