About Bilingual Acting Workshop

Be Your Own Coach: Emotional Preparation for the Film and TV Actor and Director

So many talented actors have trouble preparing and making choices when it comes to tapping into the emotional life of a character. When your director says ‘action,’ are you truly connected to your character and their world?

Be Your Own Coach, by Amy Werba and Peter Meagher, is a pocketbook manual that will allow you to prepare by yourself, for yourself, before an audition or on set.

Drawing on insights from her personal career, Amy emphasizes the value of emotional preparation as she guides up-and-coming acting professionals to embrace their craft on a deeper and more profound level.

In this book, you will gain
● A step by step method for emotional preparation through easily accessible keywords
● Practical, workable exercises to enhance your acting performance
● A renewed approach to character work and scene preparation
● Techniques for long-term character development to round out your preparation
● Personal reflections from Amy’s acting career
● Insights to help you succeed in the industry

With the tips and tools from Be Your Own Coach, you will learn how to access true and honest emotions for your scene work. You will be equipped to tap into a deep emotional reservoir for your performance, intimately connected to all of your character’s wants, needs and desires, and completely immersed in the sensorial reality of your character’s world.
