OUR GOALS TOGETHER

    WHY HIRING A PRIVATE COACH IS IMPORTANT:


THE PUBLIC HAS REALIZED AN EVER-GROWING NEED FOR TECHNIQUE IN INDIVIDUAL EXPRESSION 

AND A HUMAN BEING CAN EXPRESS ONLY WHAT HE OR SHE HOLDS IN ACTUAL POSSESSION. SUCH POSSESSION (with a focused private coach) can be increased, opened and freed through dramatic educative processes which builds a strong foundation for the development of personality and frees individuality.


TO HELP YOU BECOME A SELF DIRECTED AND ADAPTABLE ARTIST UPON WHOM THE INDUSTRY CAN RELY. IN LIFE, YOU DON'T GET A  SECOND  CHANCE TO  MAKE  A  GOOD  FIRST  IMPRESSION

 

LETS PRACTICE THE REAL LIFE PROCESS

TO HELP YOU BECOME A SELF DIRECTED AND ADAPTABLE ARTIST UPON WHOM THE INDUSTRY CAN RELY.


"IN LIFE, YOU DON'T GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION.


SIMULATING THE REAL LIFE PROCESS

From the moment you walk in the door, be in it to win it or don't bother to show up. So we practice the process; we record the process and stay 100% present throughout the process. Then, together, you and I watch the replay and evaluate your performance. Then, I'll transfer it to your thumb drive and later, after you step away from your work, you watch it again.


I WILL COACH YOU DURING OUR SESSIONS WITH THE GOAL OF BECOMING AN ACTOR KNOWN FOR THEIR ABILITY TO BE FOCUSED AND SKILLED WHEN RE-DIRECTED. 


TO MAKE DIFFERENT CHOICES TAKES PRACTICE AND BUILDS YOUR CONFIDENCE IN YOUR INTUITIVE ABILITIES.  

INDUSTRY PROS REALLY LIKE THAT! 


LET’S DEVELOP YOUR SYSTEM TO GROW YOUR TOOLS AS AN ARTIST.

               WE GROW YOUR SKILLS 

     TO CREATE AN EFFECTIVE REEL



It's a jungle out there, and acquiring the best skill sets requires a professional guide you can count on . As an Acting Coach in Portland, My job is to help you grow stronger on  your journey from the audition process through your focused on-camera performance. 

LEARN SOLID APPROACHES 
TO APPLY YOUR AUDITIONS:

  1. SLATING TECHNIQUES & INTERVIEWING  because 60% of 1st callbacks result from simply how you enter the room and say 'Hello'.
  2. COLD READING - LISTENING - They must be practiced together because 60% of 2nd call backs are judged by the skilled cold reading technique
    and acting choices you make.
  3. REACTIONS ON CAMERA
    because they are as important as dialogue.
  4. BASIC CAMERA TERMINOLOGY
    What is my frame?...Where is my look?  
  5. ON-SET BEHAVIOR - ATTITUDE             Do's and don'ts.  
  6.  REHEARSING & MEMORIZATION TECHNIQUES BY cold reading and listening! and making intuitive acting choices,
