By Appointment Only
Sometimes a one on one private session is just the thing, whether for an unexpected audition or an area of exploration you'd like more work on.
These coachings are equally useful to actors, directors, and writers. Half-hour sessions are available via phone only.
ACTORS, please provide headshot, resume, and/or clip, as well as a copy of your sides with the breakdown, via email.
WRITERS & FILMMAKERS, please provide a photo of yourself and a short resume of your work and background, via email.
EMAIL TIM TO REQUEST A TIME. PURCHASE after you receive confirmation.
Tim's extensive experience with texts has translated into fantastic private actor coaching, script reads, and consultations
with actors, filmmakers, writers, and directors.
35 years of intense investigation into script analysis helps actors translate the requirement of what is in the text into the medium of on-camera audition technique.
Tim's curiosity about how best to connect quality acting with excellent auditioning skill while under pressure has opened the door to his unique and universally accessible tools. He calls this 'Sherlock Holmesing the Text.'
If you're an actor who prefers working in a deeply concentrated, private way, devoted solely to your progress, Tim is the teacher for you.
If you're a writer developing material and want to strengthen an articulate vision, or are filmmaking and need to translate your vision into simple, immediately accessible, actionable directions to get spontaneous, authentic work from your actors, no one does it better or with more generosity than Tim Phillips.
“My confidence, my grounding, and my bookings went up literally 300% - 400% after working with Tim. The intuitive thing Tim has developed, how he zeroes in on a script and also you, your work just opens up. He's definitely a master."
ROBERT WISDOM, THE ALIENIST, PRISON BREAK, THE WIRE, FACE OFF
“The craft of writing begins with creating clear relationships and how they pertain to the human condition, something no one teaches better than Tim Phillips. Tim’s approach to writing is complementary to his approach to acting. Take the guess work out of building a character and the world around them by replacing the voodoo of good work with craft.”
JASON FURLANI, author of THE BIG VIG, LEADED, series writer on TITANS
"As a casting director, when I audition an actor who has studied with Tim, I see they know how to find a connection to the material and have confidence to use it in their work. That's often the difference between being a good actor and a working actor."
