Lesson Details

Film Acting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I've been fortunate enough to study with some of the top acting coaches and teachers around the world! This has given me a unique arsenal of “actor’s tools” that I’m happy to share with you. I love helping actors get extreme clarity on a scene and their character in record time. I also give you fun, fast, tips and tricks on character discovery, memorization, on-camera techniques and audition mastery that you can use for a lifetime. Whether it’s for an audition, agent or manager reading or casting director meet and greet, I love helping actors bring scenes to life in ways they hadn’t thought of before!

Teaching since:
2008

Hunter loves to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. She has been coaching actors since 2008 and has a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work that stands out to casting directors & agents and to make self-tapes that shine above the rest.

She has spent more than 20 years working in the entertainment industry in 8 countries. This includes modeling, commercials & print work in Athens & Istanbul, acting in Toronto & London, UK, and even screen writing, before diving into the big market of Los Angeles that she now calls home.

With 10 years of vocal training (primarily spoken level voice & breath work for actors) voiceovers has also been a big part of her career, recording voices on more than 400 projects to date.

Hunter's love for the craft brought her to study in NYC with legendary acting coach Uta Hagen: a process that transformed her approach and led her to such roles as Blanche in Streetcar Named Desire and Karen in David Mamet's iconic Hollywood satire, Speed The Plow. She has also appeared on screen in The Bandit Hound II with Lou Ferrigno, Paul Sorvino & Catherine Bell & on TV in Mutant X, Doc, Singles Court, PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal and has hosted for HGTV. Currently she is voicing 5 characters (English language dubbing) on the mega hit TV series Babylon Berlin.

Words can’t describe the excellent voice over coaching that I have received from Hunter. During every consultation, I’ve learned through her realistic approach how to unblock the mental barriers of discovering my true authentic voice. When I met Hunter, I had lots of doubts and fears of becoming a professional Voice Over talent. Now I am booking and receiving amazing responses from clients. Thank you Hunter!

After my first 30 minutes into my Discovery call with Hunter I knew she was a match for me. She just got it! She understands the dynamics of cutting through B.S. that doesn't matter in order to get you to stay focused and on track towards goals that DO matter! After explaining to her a lot of my roadblocks and huge gigantic goals/dreams she immediately embraced even some of the not so fun experiences I shared and encouraged me to see them all as part of my journey. I highly encourage working with Hunter because what I think has helped her and her clients reach their own success is that she is a coach that works with you where you are no judgements or blaming. She can see your potential in you inspiring you even closer to your dreams. I feel more confident than ever that I will be able to achieve some really lofty goals through working with her and I can't wait to get even further into our coaching sessions!

In one coaching session Hunter completely changed the way I thought about my business, for the better! As a coach, Hunter is clear, concise and highly intuitive. Her aim is true and exacting. Hunter made me feel supported and confident, after our session I was ready to take immediate action after a lifetime of doubting myself and procrastination. I felt strong and motivated to grow my business. She had an uncanny knack of knowing exactly what to say to abate my fears and trepidation's. Investing in coaching with Hunter is a true investment in YOURSELF. If you're tired of wallowing, take this step into solutions, you won't regret it! You will learn more in one session than in five years of therapy.
