PRIVATE COACHING

I offer Private coaching by the hour for actors of all ages and levels of experience. I have coached actors as young as 4 years old all the way up to seniors. I have helped actors prepare auditions and roles for major feature films, commercials and TV shows in LA and I will work with you here in the Salt Lake area to tailor a private session that meets your needs and makes the best use of our time.  No two auditions are the same and actors need to understand the differences between auditioning for a multi-camera sitcom, single camera TV shows, feature films, and commercials.  All require something unique of the actor.  

Coaching will help you make strong choices, use buttons that book commercials, access your true essence and work on truly staying present in the scene. Extra attention is given to listening and reacting in the moment, not pre-planning how you think your character should react.  That can be detrimental to your audition. Contact me today to get on your way to stronger auditions and to get to the next level in your acting!  

Rates and services: (Discounts are available for multiple sessions)

PRIVATE COACHING: $75 per hour

AUDITION TAPING W/COACHING (reader included): $75 per hour ($50 minimum)

DEMO REELS

In the rapidly moving and ever-evolving digital age, the need for an effective and well edited demo reel is critical more than ever before. The point of a professional actor reel is to showcase you, your skills/ experience, and your character range/ type. An awesome reel starts with you acting RIGHT AWAY. It also shows you in a character type that is definitely you, while spelling out your range and caliber. Your demo reel is your calling card and will show what simply cannot be seen in a headshot or on a resume.  If you have been acting for while and have a few clips of high quality footage that shows you on screen and not as a background player – then it’s time to put together an acting reel.

I offer full-service editing for professional demo reels.  I will work with you to negotiate a fair price based on what you need done.  Whether you need a quick edit with clips you have already selected and uplaoded, or perhaps we are starting from scratch and you need me to upload footage and consult with you on which clips to include and go from there.  I have the full-editing software and video ripping capabilities to make your demo reel; engaging, brief and up to industry standards.  

$50 per hour for demo reel services, with footage provided by the actor
