„Once you stop taking yourself so damn seriously, you are free to act with pleasure!“
Quote from Philippe Gaulier, teacher of drama and comedy
From my own experience, I know what it takes to be successful IN FRONT OF the camera and I am able to draw on this to offer you individual training. I teach you to present yourself confidently and to be conscious about your words and body language. It is a craft – both being on the stage and in front of the camera.
I started studying performing arts immediately after completing secondary school: stage musicals at the Stage School of Dance and Drama in Hamburg. Then at the “Die Etage” drama school Berlin – a multidisciplinary school.
I was trained in stage arts of all kinds: mime, drama, dance, classical and modern, singing and acrobatics. The curriculum also included designing and staging my own play. Every quarter there was a practical interim examination.
I had the great fortune to study the high art of comedy – under no less than Philippe Gaulier in London and Paris.
After I completed my training in 1991, my work led me to Spain and Greece as a show designer for the Robinson Club. I was a comedian at Pomp Duck and Circumstance in Munich.
I hosted my own show in Berlin, burst out of cakes singing, and played a lawyer in various German early evening series. In 1997, I went to San Francisco to become a concept designer for the Floating Company.
Project: German Pavilion, Expo 2000. Splash Film in Los Angeles, an offshoot of the branded movie from Hamburg, then engaged me as a director and actress for music clips. One project: Sonic Empire “Members of Mayday”.
In 2003, I handled the artistic direction and production direction for the “Artists against Aids” gala in the Theater des Westens. This wonderful theatre with all its totally committed and heartfelt crew was at my disposal for seven years. This gave me a fantastic opportunity to direct many great artists right up to 2009. Since then, I have been working exclusively as a director and media trainer.
We train you for your TV and stage performances. As you can imagine, I have gained quite some experience in how to do this effectively and successfully over the years. And still have fun doing it.
Your coaching involves working on your scripts and presentations together. To be more specific, this means training body language, voice and speech, developing scripts and defining content, stage and on-camera training.
