On-Camera Acting Workshops

IMG_3008

Professional, practical and affordable coaching and instruction for novice to advanced students, models and actors.

Due to the pandemic, I've suspended all of my in person workshops and will be offering them via ZOOM.  Individual coaching is still available either in person or via ZOOM.   Obviously, in person workshops  are preferred and can offer a more dynamic experience.  However, if you're trying to do more on-camera acting, why not try on-camera learning!!

 

On Camera Workshops
Are you ready to create realistic scenes with other actors that get the attention
of decision makers and most importantly, the audience?

The majority of individual coaching and workshops are conducted at Bill's acting studio near downtown Minneapolis. The large studio is conveniently located with free parking. Remote coaching and workshops can be arranged.

The following workshops are conducted regularly but not on a consistent schedule.
