„He knows the limitations of camera art for the actor and always teaches surprising keys to making it real in each moment….He’s an artist. He never stops learning, teaching new things, seeing the world anew. He is clarity personified.“ – Robin Levenson- (Quelle Backstage)
“A session with Ron is like going to church. I am not a bit religious but I can image that the feelings of calmness and reassurance I am left with after an hour with Ron is similar to sensation of walking about of a service. This is high praise! But I don’t believe there anyone better at breaking down a script. He just makes things so much simpler and that is all I ever need.” - Jane Levy ( “Shameless” – Tv-Series )
