Winning acclaim in 2013 for my direction of STEALING LINCOLN by Anne G'Fellers-Mason and numerous educational videos since, I’ve been called an “awesome” Acting Coach both on-camera and for members of the Philadelphia Opera Company and their student master classes.
TV PRODUCTION and SCREEN WRITING:
Palm Beach Community College, Palm Beach, Florida. My TV Production classes were conducted in a state-of-the-Art studio facility wherein each student received hands on training by performing each element of television production: To include: lighting, sound, switching, camera operation, directing, acting, writing, on-line editing, and titling. As the owner of MBR Productions, a company which discovers, develops and produces the works of new writers, I taught screen writing at the college level from the point of view of the Producer and Director: extremely result-oriented — stressing the importance of structure, theme, story line, sub-plots, conflict, character development, relationships, and how to storyboard it and shoot it.
TV PRODUCTION DIRECTOR and ON-CAMERA INSTRUCTOR:
Actors Performance Arts TV & Film School, West Palm Beach, Florida. I Directed on-Camera Acting Classes involving all levels of adult students in actual scenes from Soap Operas, Film, Commercials and Theatre. When these did not best serve actors, I wrote Television scenes for them. All actors and scenes were televised in video showcases for visiting Casting Directors, Agents and Managers.
With over twenty years of professional management experience as a Director & Producer of talented performers and writers, I am also an energetic educational professional with teaching & tutoring experience in History & English as well as Performing and Media Arts courses, private lessons, career consulting, curriculum development and both launching Theatre Companies and resurrecting Theaters. Because of my natural desire to assist in all human development through the Arts, my patient yet result oriented approach enables any who wish to learn to do so with a practical world view that nurtures a great appreciation of themselves and all of humankind. As a Performing/Media Specialist, I exude excellent people skills that create a comfortable learning environment while inspiring each student to fulfill their highest potential, and I do this both online and in the classroom. I am a professional Director, mentor, coach, consultant and educator with numerous success stories from NYC to DC to WPB. My experience provides a solid background and firm understanding of how to ascertain where student/talent is, and how to specialize & individualize a path that propels them toward the achievement of their ultimate goals.
Served honorably in the United States Army as a lead singer and narration writer for the Soldiers’ Chorus of the United States Army Field Band, at Ft Meade, Maryland. In my last year of enlistment, I was the Director of the “Soldiers of Song,” (a 12-member ensemble that included choreography in its performances). It was in this capacity, after a performance for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and members of Congress, that I received a Congressional Citation from President Richard M. Nixon.
