Learn Acting for Film and Television with an Award-Winning Director

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 B.

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 drama series. This is in addition to working actors I already coach on various projects they're auditioning for and filming. In my own career, I'm a Los Angeles-based actor-turned-filmmaker. I've played theaters in New York City and all over the world (including touring in "Les Misérables" and being an original cast member of "Heathers: The Musical"), and I've acted in television shows like "Switched at Birth" (ABC Family), "The Good Wife," and "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS). As a director, my short films have played festivals and won awards across the globe, including the CINE Golden Eagle Award for Narrative Short Film — an award recognizing rising filmmakers which has honored the early careers of Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Mel Brooks, Jim Henson, Taylor Hackford, and many others since 1957. I look forward to sharing my all-encompassing perspective on acting with you and setting your talent loose on the world!
