Online Film Acting Teacher

As an actor for 14 years who became an award-winning director and screenwriter, I have a particularly well-rounded perspective on acting. My belief is that anyone can act, if given the right tools, and I have a proven track record -- actors who work with me are presently booking major roles in film and television. My philosophy is that acting is about exploring yourself -- who you really are as a human being -- and having confidence in that unique individual's perspective on the character. We will also use my expertise on the other side of the camera to explore how to work with directors, as well as the writer's viewpoint on the larger story. I look forward to setting your talents loose on the world!

About Zach

My work as an acting coach speaks for itself. Just in the past several months alone, actors I work with have booked their first jobs as a recurring guest star in a primetime television series, a lead in a Lifetime movie, roles on two Netflix drama series, and a major guest star on an Amazon original

As both a hypnotist and martial arts instructor, I talk in a variety of vocal ranges. When I came to Aubrey, I was struggling because of the strain my martial arts instruction was having on my voice, leaving me unable to talk the next day. In just two sessions with Aubrey, I've already started to feel a shift in the way I speak, using the exercises she has taught me, and reaching a better, healthier sound with my voice. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for fun and efficient vocal training!

Online Film Acting Teacher

I give acting lessons and coaching in all aspects of acting, based in the celebrated Meisner Technique, which I've taught for over 30 years. I teach a full technique program for those who want to study the whole system which includes, improvisation, scene work and character work, cold readings, monologue development and much much more. For those who already have experience or are professional actors I offer high-level coaching, taking your auditions to the next level, and working with you on your current scripts and projects to magnify your focus, intentions and behaviors so that you can sharpen your performances to the highest degree. I am experienced in theater, film, tv and commercial work, and have tailored techniques for all of these areas. I've refined cold reading technique so that you can quickly break down a script into essentials and win roles, or even go in completely cold and work super-effectively directly off the script. Super-sharp script breakdowns for film roles,

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."

Online Film Acting Lessons

Online Film Acting Classes

In the acting world, there are many acting styles that require different skill sets. Film acting, for example, refers to the kind of acting performed for movies. Unlike theater acting, film acting usually occurs in front of a camera, director, and camera operator, rather than a live audience. When it comes to film acting, the actors have the opportunity to work through scenes in several takes instead of just one like in a live performance.

Because of the many nuances between acting styles, you may need some one-on-one guidance when it comes to learning and mastering film acting. That’s why we offer affordable and hassle-free online film acting classes here at TakeLessons. With our online film acting courses, you will learn everything you need
