I am a working Character Actor for 25+ years. I've produced a Music Video and a Film Short (Film Short currently on Festival Circuit!). Spent most of my life as a Stage Actor...but last 8 years in the Indie Film Circuit. I have only done Private Acting Coaching as it's a much more personal connection that I feel is really needed for a good trust factor as well as getting to the Nuggets within my clients much faster! I am all about helping you HONE your Craft Skills & helpiing you dump your Unique things standing in your way of Working Progress. Which can be Twitches, Confidence, just plain acting ability...etc. I go by one name in the biz...BEKA. But you'll find me on facebook as BEKA JEAN. https://www.facebook.com/beka.Iam I try to work with all Budgets as best I can. I will also do very quick last minute audition coachings on SKYPE as well!
There is nothing more thrilling than passing on skills and knowledge that have been gleaned from other studies or in the growth of my own abilities. Paying it forward no matter how you do it, is what it is all about! I enjoy the smiles that comes from the confidence coaching instills! Any art or artistic endeavor benefits the soul greatly!
She takes the time to get to know you, and develops your skills at your growth rate. Her lessons are very informative and she will move you to the next level of success. I learned more in one session studying for a monologue with her, then I did being on 5 movie sets! This is why I continue taking classes with Beka. Beka goes beyond just being a coach, almost like having a friend in the business, because she also gave me tips on how to get work, and who to talk to and inside information I'm getting gigs!
My first coaching session with Beka very pleasant,comfrtable and looking forward to next session next week.Joe
I first do a phone consult to determine focus and needs. Depending on that need is how I base the first lesson. I like a pressure-free atmosphere and allow choices to be made by client within a structure we set up together. IF a coach and client are not on the same page from the beginning...it will never work to the client's advantage.
A LIFETIME within my Craft...BEING a WORKING ACTOR and of course passing on that same life-work knowledge both from jobbing as well as from other lessons!
