“Sheila is a wonderful acting coach. She worked with all the actors on “A Bronx Tale. ” Sheila is able to prepare and rehearse the actors while keeping the scenes fresh and spontaneous. She was great to have on set. I am always happy to recommend her.” - Robert De Niro
This workshop will be a survey class of tools an actor can implement while rehearsing and performing with an emphasis on film technique. The class will begin with relaxation and body work followed by emotional and imaginative exercises to stimulate and inspire the actors. Through improvisations the actors will practice being in the moment, working off of each other and bringing their own depth and truth to the characters and stories they are portraying. The class should feel like a rehearsal process rather than a performance so the actors are free to explore and discover without pressure.
Since working in film is an intimate process with the camera picking up subtleties we will focus on how to develop privacy in a public setting and how to create a rich internal life and inner dialogue that the camera will then pick up. This will enable the actors to embody the characters and the stories they tell in a realistic and unique way.

“Sheila was terrifically helpful with our young actor on Michael Clayton. It’s delicate work. She made sure to understand exactly what we needed, kept me well-informed, and delivered an actor with the confidence to stay loose and take direction. She did a great job for us.” Tony Gilroy; Director/Writer ‘Bourne Ultimatum’
