On camera it's all about truth, spontaneity, action and mastering that frame, David focuses on quickly identifying the given circumstances, unlocking the intention/action etc work on the scene. The rest of the prep is about personalizing the work, embodying the moment and investing it with your own truth and imagination. David loves to work with actors on camera work. There is so much storytelling possible with the smallest of actions or movements, or movement of thought in a frame. Whether it's to book a TV guest spot or series regular, a role in a movie or student film, David places as much importance on your freedom in the work, as he does on booking the job.
The greatest thing about acting in the theater is the ability to fully express yourself with your whole body and the actual energy of your voice, your emotions, your whole being. David focuses on unlocking the scene, and then taking all of the "tablework" and figuring out ways to activate it in your body. Once your imagination and instincts are going, your audition can become a space for you to do your work rather than try and get a part. Even a room full of producers, casting people and a tired director can't deny when a human being authentically going after something, alive and spontaneous, is working in a room.
Acting training works best when there is not an audition to report to at the end of the day. One on one acting work is an especially great way to grow your confidence, expand your tools, deepen your ability to apply imagination and artistry to your work, and ground yourself in reliable technique. David loves working with actors in this way, particularly actors early in their career, or people and kids who are just beginning. If you're looking to get your acting in shape, or take a step in a new direction- this is a great start.
David will you take your idea and help you sharpen it so you have the strongest story and script in place before filming begins. Wherever you are in the process, whether its just an idea, or if you have a whole series written and just need that final touch up, David will be there to guide you towards getting your unique vision clearer and finally made.
