It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an experienced stage actor; film and TV acting can be a baffling and sometimes terrifying experience. How to develop the inner emotional life of a character, how to react – not perform, how to feel relaxed, comfortable and focused when the director says “Action” is the key to a creative and natural on camera performance. That’s what this film acting class is about.
- Film Acting classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced actors.
- Private Coaching, Audition prep, self-tape audition filming.
- Relaxation is the key - Reacting is the core
I offer either online or in-person one-on-one coaching. $50 per session.
