There are 4 main skills a film actor must master

  • Conversation
  • Conflict
  • Love
  • Comedy

Each role…no matter what the character type… requires 1 or more of these skills in some combination.

Coaching Philosophy

Drills and practicing skills can only take you so far.

Sooner or later, an actor has to put it all together and LIVE a character’s life in a scene. Since acting is essentially just living, I emphasize approaching it as just an extension of your everyday life with conversation and human instincts.

There’s really no big mystery…you do what you’ve been doing every day for your whole life. The behavioral mechanisms are the same…you just pretend to be another person while doing it and somebody has written your words down in advance for you.

I’m here to remind you and give you as many scenes as you have time to do in every workshop. The more acting scenes you do, the more effortless it becomes and the deeper you can go into your character’s world.
