About this pro


Actor, Clu Gulager  (The Killers, Last Picture Show, The Return of the Living Dead) originated Clu Gulager's Film Acting Workshop in the 60's, his son director, John  Gulager, (Feast, Piranna, 3dd) and his daughter-in-law, actress Diane Ayala Goldner (The Shield, Feast 1,2,3, The Collector), joined forces with Clu in the 80's.  All scenes and film exercises are shot viewed and critiqued. The focus of the workshop is what works in front of the camera.  You will  learn the aesthectic and practical challenges (matcing, hitting marks, protocal) of working on a film set.



$50 Private coaching session includes a facetime phone interview where I find out about you and we decide on a scene that would fit your "quality" as an actor. That quality consist of how you look, how you handle yourself and your life's experience. After we decide on a scene, we can talk by phone on how to "work" your scene. You then will present the scene to me in person. Ideally we would get together once a week, first creating a scene that works in front of a camera, next taking the scene and using it to learn and practice how to hit your marks and match and for an added fee I will shoot your scene and critique it.


I am an actress, married to a director whose father and mother were both actors, and we teach a film acting workshop, so I know about about auditioning, and how to work with actors. I will run your scene with you untill you feel ready to shoot, and then I will record it on your iphone so you can send it.

    I have taken eight of Mr. Gulager's workshops and the experience has been incredible. Acting was something I had always wanted to pursue but I was too insecure. Mr. Gulager and his family changed all of that. Not only have I grown as an actor, but the skills I have acquired have given me a newfound confidence in other areas of my life. Mr. Gulager is a wealth of knowledge and is generous with imparting that to his students. I am so glad I found this workshop!

    There's nothing like this class. If I had known about it twenty years ago, it would have made the difference for me when I made that decision then to stop pursuing my dream of acting. I've been taking this workshop for three and a half years now. Clu is an amazing teacher. He is attentive with each student, giving generously of his time to examine the student's choices. With his keen intuition and incredible understanding of psyche, he is able to help the student discover appropriate characteristics, moods and behaviors for a certain character. No matter how prepared I think I am before class, Clu always helps me to find additional texture for my character which lends to a more enhanced performance. While viewing the day's scenes, which are nicely covered and beautifully shot by John Gulager, Clu's invaluable coaching continues and is complimented by the insightful observations and useful advice of his assistant coach, Diane Goldner. I recommend this class to ANY level of actor.
