Performance coaching from a working film director!
Keep it simple! Acting isn't hard. My job is to get the performer out of their own way and let the scene be real in the moment. Whether it's acting, hosting, or even public speaking, it's all a performance. Aside from working in the business, I've been teaching acting and hosting for over ten years. I use a mixture of the Meisner technique for the base of most of my lessons. Everyone I teach comes away with a better perspective of their own body and voice and how to use them.
About Lance S.

TV host turned actor turned teacher turned director... and back again. In the entertainment business, I've done it all. At 19 I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a dream, only to discover that the dream is the pursuit. At 22 I became the face of CMT, MTV's country music network, a VIACOM property. At 33 I co-anchored the desk of the nationally syndicated live morning show, The Daily Buzz. And then for the last 8 seasons of football, I've been moonlighting as the hype man on Sundays for the Tennessee Titans, as well as host The Titans Blitz, with Eddie George. But that is just a resume and only tells part of the story. Storytelling is why I'm here, and it should be your reason too. Now, as a film director, I focus on one simple idea. Communication. It doesn't matter if you're giving a speech, acting in a film, or hosting a podcast. At the end of the day, you're COMMUNICATING an idea. And over my 20+ years as a professional communicator, I have the expertise to pull it out of you. Let's get to work!
