This is a highly competitive business. It is also imperative to remember that it is, more importantly, FUN!  I create an inclusive environment that supports and brings out each client’s natural abilities and personality. We work to uncover what YOU bring to the party! Then I shape and direct/tweak your audition to make sure we have mined every moment we can out of the text. Casting offices want to be able to imagine you on set while they watch your audition. They WANT you to be the one – then their job is done! We break down the script to make sure you understand what’s happening in the scene, we identify the tone and style, we look at your choices and make them as interesting and varied as possible, and then we send you to your audition with complete confidence.

 

"I own my confidence to you for helping me out with the crying parts. I wouldn't have been ready without you!!" -Thea Saccoliti

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Make sure to bring a second set of sides for me.

Bring or e-mail me the complete Character Breakdown you received from your agent, with all the character descriptions and story line included. Whenever possible, try and read the entire script or all the sides posted at Actor’s Access. The more information we have, the better!

Research the show: go to IMDB to get information on the writer/directors. If new to you, watch an episode on Hulu or YouTube to get the overall tone.
