I’ve been a working actor in LA for over 20 years now, and I’ve also been a teacher/audition coach at JRS since the very early days of the studio opening. All that really means, in the long run, is that I have a decent amount of experience in the room as the auditioner, on set as the hired actor, and on the couch coaching the auditioner. I love to figure out the puzzle that comes with auditioning. Whether it’s finding the right fit/temperature for the actor and the character they are going in for or determining what makes them pop in the room.
I am very interested in your organic connection to the character but also taking into consideration how it will look in the frame. Since most auditions are self-tapes now, we CANNOT ignore the camera. At the end of the day, I want you to leave a class or coaching with me feeling more grounded, more connected to the story you want to tell, and confident to walk into your audition feeling free to play.
