Preparedness

For every successful actor, there are countless unsuccessful ones. Is it because they lack talent? No. Casting directors cite numerous reasons for not hiring certain actors and it’s rarely ever about talent. The most important issues include:

• Not doing the homework about a part: the sides and information provided to the actor gives them all the information they need to understand the character and also conduct some research about the part and/or or project.

• Inability to follow directions: casting directors begin judging the actors before they even enter the room, so they need to follow every instruction, no matter how insignificant each may seem. Filling out forms, behavior toward other actors and staff, conduct in the audition room, etc. The audition is their first opportunity to see if they can follow directions.

These are really only two examples. But, they can cost an actor dearly. They provide an example of how the actor will work during filming and also tells the director that the actor doesn’t care. The actor certainly won’t get a callback for that role or possibly any other project for which that casting director works.

Improper preparedness is the common denominator in these issues. The solution is coaching. And, not just any coaching. The key a successful professional acting career is proper acting coaching.

Rod Rowland Coaching

Rod is a highly successful actor with over 100 appearances in television and film. His credits include: NCIS New Orleans, American Horror Story, Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, and Twin Peaks Re-Boot, just to name a few.

He believes his twenties were squandered because he put his faith in pretentious acting instructors that cost him over $100,000. He has learned a great deal since then and now wants to pass on that knowledge. He simply does not want other actors to also waste a decade of their lives or, as so many others have done, simply give up.

Private Acting Coaching

Rod offers beginner friendly, private, one-on-one coaching in his studio in North Hollywood, California. No problem, however, for actors who don’t live in that area. Rod also conducts online actor training through FaceTime and Skype.

Rod will conduct a session of lessons custom-made to each actor. When the actor is through, they will be fully able to perform a top notch, spot-on audition

Just imagine having a veteran actor for a scene partner. That alone provides invaluable teaching.

Audition Preparedness

Through Rod, the actor will learn how to prepare for auditions. They will:

• Be able to properly respond to any direction the casting director offers. Such will prove their skills and reliability.

• Recognize and understand current acting techniques and theories.

• Be able to portray roles and characters they thought were impossible, thus widening their range.

Through Rod, the actor will place in the five percent of their competition.

Results

Solid agents have signed ninety percent of the students who remain committed to Rod’s program and consistently completed his advanced acting lessons. As well, casting directors have cast signed them on to professional paying gigs. Though Rod cannot promise success, as long as they dedicate and commit themselves and bring their energy, his odds are pretty great.

The Agent

Any actor who dreams of stardom knows they need a great agent.

An agent is an actor’s representative and go-between. They look out for and speak on the actor’s behalf with regard to potential projects and roles. The agent also discusses and works-out the details of potential offers.

Sometimes an agent arranges meetings to introduce the actor to casting directors, executives, producers, and other individuals who make decisions about roles. This is so that when certain opportunities arise, those individuals think of the actor.

Should An Actor First Find an Agent Before You Look for Auditions?

No. An actor first needs to land roles before an agent will represent you. An agent makes money when the actors they represents land roles, so they, naturally, only want to sign actors with proven records of success. And, in some cases, someone they greatly trusts highly recommends.

How Do You Get an Agent to Notice You?

Actors need to put themselves out there if they ever want an agent to sign them. They do that by acting in plays, short films, student films, and taking classes. Such allows agents to notice them and/or allows them to make connect with individuals who personally know agents.

In essence, most of the actors who successfully sign with agents are the ones who found ways to be signed. This statement was not meant to be cheeky. It meant that some of the actors who actively look for and pursues ways to gain agents have a much better chance of having an agent sign them.

Professional Actors Classes

In 1997 Rod Rowland was cast in the X-Files. In an interview around that time, Rod explained that he played an on-the-edge, depressed killer that heard voices from a tattoo on his arm. Rod added that he also wanted fans to sympathize with his character. His goals were to portray the character realistically and to “nail” the scenes.

Actors rarely talk like that in interviews. They mostly discuss the overall project or simply respond to the interviewer’s questions. Not Rod. Rod’s focus was on developing the character, making him authentic, and delivering a great performance. Once again, that’s rare.

Rod Rowling Coaching

Most actors follow the script as written and all of them usually perform the character the exact same way. Casting directors, however, are seeking something unique. And, that’s something Rod has been perfecting his entire career. It’s how he’s been so successful. It’s helped him appear in over 100 television series and films, including The Mentalist, Burn Notice, NCIS Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, Longmire, and Those Who Kill, just to name a few.

When Rod first started out, he sought guidance, but his acting teachers were themselves actors who only landed one or two roles at best. Most meant well, but tried to teach obsolete techniques even they didn’t comprehend and were never able to successfully use. And, unfortunately, that’s usually the kind of instructors who teach in most Hollywood acting schools.

As time passed, Rod created and developed his technique, and when he finally perfected it, his career path suddenly and drastically changed for the better. And, now, because he understands the frustration and loss of resources that so many aspiring actors face, he wants to help teach them all he has learned. The difference with Rod is that he is a highly successful actor who is still currently working. His techniques are current, comprehensible, and self-proven. And, his motivation is to help others.

How Rod Teaches

Rod teaches privately and one-on-one, through sessions that are customized to each actor’s strengths, weaknesses, type, and age. Rod conducts lessons live, at his North Hollywood studio. No problem, however, if you reside elsewhere, as he also conducts online acting classes and skype acting classes.

Most of the students who have completed Rod’s advanced packages now have agents and flourishing acting careers. While Rod cannot specifically guarantee success, he can say that your odds can only increase as long as you consistently commit to your training and dedicate all of your energy.

At least just imagine reading lines with and learning from a veteran actor. Twelve one-hour sessions with Rod is equal to years of study with the highest quality acting school and weeks of workshops with casting directors.

It’s time to stop throwing away your money and wasting time. Contact Rod today.

Keep on Studying and Learning

Actors are artists. Just like painters, sculptors, writers, and poets are artists. Artists are also passionate. Intensely passionate. They absolutely love their art and they’re most happy when they’re doing their art. For some, it’s the only time they’re happy. Artists pursue their craft intensely. Even when people protest their actions. Even when people tell them that they’ll never do any good. The artist’s dream is success and recognition. And, for the actor, a successful professional acting career means landing roles and performing them well.

Landing roles and doing them well…well, doesn’t usually happen right away or very easily. An actor has appeal to casting directors. To do that, an actor has to develop their talent. And, that takes work.

The Business of Acting

To land roles, an actor also has to try to get an agent to sign them and book and schedule auditions, and then prepare for those auditions. That’s the business part of acting. And, it takes work, too.

Love and Passion

An artist’s love and passion for their art keeps them striving to land roles and perform well. It helps them succeed. And, when the actor is working, they’re happy. But, when they’re not working….well, those days are dark.

The dark days usually come in waves and stretches. It’ll seem like months where there are no roles for which the actor to apply and/or months where the actor is continually rejected. And, they happen to everyone. Even to the best actors. Even to Academy Award winning actors. It’s part of life. Even people who aren’t actors have their own dark days.

Sometimes those dark days wear down an actor and make them question their dream. But, the actor cannot let that happen. They must keep their love and passion for acting alive during those dark days. It’s absolutely vital.

There’s a positive way to spend the dark days. Not only does this approach keep the passion and dream alive, it helps the actor improve their skills, too. It’s acting coaching.

Rod Rowland

Rod Rowland is a highly successful actor. He’s appeared in over 100 television series and movies, including NCIS: New Orleans, NCIS Los Angeles, The Mentalist, CSI: Miami, The Closer, Cold Case, and Weeds, just to name a few.

Rod had dark times himself, too. But, he kept on working on his craft. He put aside the business pressure and focused on the love and passion he had for acting. It kept away all his doubts and uncertainties and kept him energized.

During his early years, however, he wasted time and money on the wrong kinds of acting teachers and coaches. He just didn’t have anyone to show him the proper way or help him figure out who could properly help him. He, therefore, created his own technique that he currently uses and which now brings him ongoing success.

Rod Rowland Coaching

Rod wants to help aspiring actors keep their love and passion alive during those dark times (as well as great times, too). He wants to help aspiring actors perfect their art and receive training from a coach who truly knows how to succeed and who truly wants them to succeed.

Rod conducts live classes in his North Hollywood Studio, as well as online actor training, FaceTime, and skype acting classes.

Fortunately, Rod went on to attain more roles and has since appeared in over sixty television series and films, including Grey’s Anatomy, Castle, American Horror Story, Weeds, Cold Case, NCIS, and NCIS New Orleans, just to name a few.

Online Acting Coaching

Rod also offers online Coaching, also through Facetime or Skype.

The Audition

Most actors hate auditioning. Really hate it. And, for good reason. It’s an extremely stressful act of desperation, performed in front of apathetic strangers. The actor puts all they have into their performance, pour out their emotions, and compete against a group of others just like them, some of whom may even be close friends, for one single opportunity, and prays with all they have they did well and were liked. When they’re through, the strangers, without a word about their performance and without making eye contact, wave them away, and say nothing about their acting.

526852_163555640469983_1929427736_n

Once home, the actor analyzes every single second they spent in the audition room and sees every moment as an error and continually berates themselves as they anxiously wait for the phone to ring and/or search emails for a response, all the while still praying it’s a positive and that they were liked. If it’s a positive response, they’re euphoric. They’ve succeeded. They’re loved. But, if it’s negative – there’s never an explanation – just a cold-hearted, essential, “we reject you” that when read, feels like a punch in the stomach. The evil rejecter provides no reason and offers no advice. The actor then instantly doubts their talent, future, and abilities.

And, then there’s the next audition. Oy vey.

How an Acting Coach Can Help

index

Acting Coaches understand the pain and fear actors have regarding auditions. Because they currently work in the field or once did, they know for what casting directors and agents are looking. Some even went through many auditions themselves.

Online Acting Classes provide that many talented actors are fundamentally unprepared for auditions and just need training

in order to land more roles.

The Acting Coach, in a one-on-one setting with the actor, can:

• help an actor understand what to expect at auditions.

• help an actor determine what might happen at a particular audition.

• teach an actor relaxation techniques.

• breakdown audition materials and help an actor give more character to a potential role.

• run audition lines with an actor and improve their performance.

• help actor select the best headshot and prepare their resume.

Level of Experience Doesn’t Matter

Acting coaches tailor their sessions to meet the needs of the individual actor, so even the experienced actor can benefit from their experience and advise. They have to audition, too.

While no one can guarantee success, preparation always increases the chance of success. An Acting Coach prepares the actor for auditions and, therefore, boosts their chances of being cast.

Private Acting Coaching

Acting depends on building relationships and developing chemistry. Acting Coaches frequently help actors accomplish these objectives on sets, at theaters, and through workshops. The Acting Coach helps actors improve individual their skills and performances both for particular roles and projects and overall for their careers.

There are times, however, when a Private Acting Coaching is more appropriate for an actor. Private acting coaching is a one-on-one session with an Acting Coach. The goals remain the same – improvement of skills for particular roles and overall for careers.

What Does Private Acting Coaching Involve?

The Private Acting Coach often:

• works with an actor get ready for an audition.

• helps an actor select a monologue for auditions.

• offers an actor advise on selecting headshots and preparing resumes.

• helps an actor prepare to act in a role in which they were cast.

• provides advise on memorizing lines.

• runs lines with an actor.

• offers career guidance.

• comes to the theater or set to provide assistance and guidance.

• teaches relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, and voice projection.

• helps an actor develop depth and work on emotions.

• assist with developing timing.

• show an actor how to stand out and get noticed.

• teach an actor “the business.”

For Both the New and Experienced Actor

Private coaching is appropriate both the new and experienced actor. It can both improve an actor’s chances for success and change the direction of their career.
