I’ve finally become a (somewhat) fan of Skype coaching. I still prefer face-to-face but this is often not possible: you live abroad, I’m too busy or away, time limits are too short. Technology has improved and I’ve been doing some successful Skype coaching at all levels and now know I can help you - and make a difference (so actors tell me) – via Skype.
I don’t believe I can help a real beginner into acting via this method but it is very useful for a specific project such as preparing a scene, working on a role or a drama school audition etc.
For experienced actors it can be an emergency support to prepare for a difficult role or a self-tape, or get back confidence. It can be used it as an assessment tool if things haven’t been going well or auditions aren’t producing right results.
It can also be used for preparing British English accent or working on voice clarity. (For full voice work I still prefer face-to-face)
I read scenes beforehand when appropriate (but ask a little extra to look at full scripts) and provide filmed moments/hand outs etc. where appropriate as part of service.
I’m generally setting a couple of sessions aside late Thurs. afternoon (UK time) to Skype and may add more space if these are full or impossible for you to do.
Current prices: £75/$120/107 euro for 75 mins. via Paypal – extra £20 to read your whole script. Student rate/drama school audition: £65 but expect you to have several choices of scripts ready.
Paypal in advance please if we haven’t met (refunded if connection fails) – 3 hour cancellation by email in emergencies either side. (Then to be re-arranged)
