Acting for Film & TV

Private multi-session workshops
Audition emergency help!!!
Self tapes (coach/read/shoot)

Having privately coached hundreds of actors across North America, I can help you as well.

Seasoned pro or a newer actor, we can work on your film/tv camera craft in a multi-session private workshop, help get you better prepared for that important audition or shoot a coached and professional self tape.

As a veteran actor, I can pass on my experience. A Gemini and ACTRA Award winner, I’ve worked with directors David Cronenberg to Ron Howard and actors Philip Seymour Hoffman, Russell Crowe, Walter Matthau, Kevin Spacey, amongst many others.

All told, in over 40 years in Toronto and Los Angeles I’ve worked on 90+ film and television productions as well as over 60 national commercials.

I highly recommend working with him.”

Hal Eisen

“Learning so much taking Judah’s workshop. It’s great to work with a coach who knows his craft, understands how to work as an actor, pushes his clients out of their comfort zone in a safe environment as well as show how much he cares about his fellow actors chasing their dreams.
I’m so glad I’m taking his private workshop and highly recommend anyone pursuing acting to do the same.”

“One of the great pleasures of directing is when an actor elevates the material off the page and up into some magical, mysterious and wondrous emotional space. Judah did that for me, showed me what ‘performance’ can be, and helped make me a better director.”
