I worked with Patrick before an audition for a feature film. Feedback from the Director was that I “killed it”. Apparently that’s a compliment in Hollywood! Anyway, I booked the part. Now I work with Patrick every week. It’s my gym class for acting.

Patrick has completely changed the way I audition. He really knows how to work you out and truly find yourself within each role. Whenever I coach with him, I go into the audition having fun, and I know I’m a contender.

Patrick truly cares about every actor that comes into his class. It’s a unique quality in this business that you can’t help but notice. If you’re looking for a scolding every time you do something ‘wrong’ this is not the class for you. Without ignoring the areas that need work, you’ll find you get more positive reinforcement than negative – leaving you empowered rather than defeated. Being that it is more than affordable makes it one of the top acting classes to take in Los Angeles. This class is truly a diamond in the rough!

Patrick helped me notice how specific I had to be, especially on camera.   Through his guidance I have gained the ability to constructively view my performance on film and learn from it.
Rollin Perry – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3535214/

I think it is invaluable to have an acting class like this where we can come in and emulate the casting process. This is a skill I had never been able to practice until now.
