My guest on this week’s Hometown to Hollywood podcast is master acting coach Anthony Meindl.



He is also the founder of Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop, which has locations in Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver, London, and Sydney. Anthony’s philosophy is radically different from the status quo—he does not use scene objective, sense memory, or any of the standard 20th Century approaches that most acting schools take as their foundation—instead, he emphasizes “living truthfully in imaginary circumstances.”

No one can promise success in this business, but you can certainly raise your odds by getting advice from the best sources. If you’re ready to get some coaching on how to help your kid break into acting for film or TV, or are already down the road but stuck, book a consultation with me on my consultation page. For not much more than the price of an hour with an acting coach, you can get peace of mind, and a detailed action plan.

Remember—the future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.
