Approaches to Technique

Acting Coach, Aaron Speiser, will be speaking on a special workshop and panel titled Approaches to Technique at Actorfest LA on November 8th. Actorfest is a one-day event, which provides actors, singers, dancers and performing artists the unique opportunity to embrace free-flowing and honest advice from agents, casting directors and successful actors. Over 4,000 attendees in Los Angeles come to Actorfest to meet face-to-face with dozens of acting teachers, vocal coaches, headshot photographers, and other professionals who can help actors advance their careers.

Aaron Speiser will be among three master acting teachers offering feedback and direction on how to improve actors' monologues, auditions, and scene work. In this special workshop, audience participants are encouraged to come with a monologue or scene partner and will be selected at random to perform. Whether chosen or not, attendees will leave with a greater understanding of what's needed to strengthen a character and heighten a scene.

Aaron Speiser has been training and coaching actors for more than 25 years. Having worked with acclaimed actors, directors, and producers, he helps actors by bringing his vast experience and depth of knowledge of the craft to his students in a simple, straightforward, practical, and inspirational way. He coaches Will Smith and Virginia Madsen and has coached Jennifer Lopez since the beginning of her career. LL Cool J, Mandy Moore, The Rock (Dwayne Johnson), Brooke Shields, Jeff Foxworthy, Shannyn Sossamon, Ashley Johnson, and Shawn, Marlon, and Kim Wayans are some of the accomplished actors who round out the list.

Speiser has worked with directors Oliver Stone, Michael Mann, F. Gary Gray, Adam Shankman, Wayne Wang, and Peter Berg. Speiser started his professional career in New York City and then earned an MFA in acting from Brandeis University. After graduation, he studied with Uta Hagen, Bill Hickey, and his mentor Kenneth McMillan at HB Studio in New York.
