From never having been on a set to winning an Academy Award, what does it mean to be an actor? How do you create success for yourself, and what does that mean to you? Understand that this is a business and in order to get what you want you must learn everything about it. Learn to produce so you can hire yourself. Learn to write so you can understand story. Learn how to be in front of a camera so that when you show up on set you’re ready to work.


The cornerstone of John’s philosophy is storytelling. He will teach you how to read a script, break down a scene, and become a master at cold reading. It is the foundational understanding of genre, scene types, and story structure that will unlock an actor’s ability to create characters with strong points of view and allow a deep and dynamic emotional availability.


John has coached over 35,000 auditions with an unmatched callback and success rate. He teaches you how to make the choices that get you hired— point of view, cinematic technique, engagement, and personality. Also, how you can translate in-the-room auditions into self-tape auditions.
