About Training & Taping with Clare

Approach & Technique in the Craft

                            in working in collaboration with actors' own instincts and explorations. I lead my coaching practice from the heart.  Each day that I get to dive into scripts, and build up an actors practice - I am filled with pure joy.

              I love digging into text with actors to support them finding their most truthful and connected interpretations.  I lead through trauma informed practices that honor each actors boundaries and agency. 

             I have an in depth background in script analysis and process work, but my personal process is an amalgam of many methodologies.    I believe that there is no one 'right way' to step into the work. And that the only way we can determine the most exciting choice, is by getting on our feet and playing it. I trust how essential it is to honor the actor's instrument, and to find where the text lives in the breath and the body.

           And I am grateful to support actors through offering many different tools  through physical exploration,  improvisation,  imaginative work, and character physicality and environment, and so much more. I lead with exploration - with the goal of uncovering the actor's most honest and authentic expression of the scene.

           As a coach, I believe that every actor's path is different. My only role in mentoring an actor's career, is to support their unique voice by offering tools to make sure their materials  reflect their strongest work. 
          I believe that actors are first and foremost, storytellers - and each actor has a story only they can tell.  And I am forever grateful to be a part of that journey.

Testimonials

Clare provides a safe space for the actor to work. She has a lot of techniques at her disposal to help you get more out of the script than you can do on your own.   It's because of Clare that I always felt like my self tapes stood out from the crowd when I sent them in. 

 Clare guided me through the entire process of finding an agent, including picking headshots and writing a resume. 

Working with Clare has definitely helped improve my acting, book jobs, and find a great agent.  I can't recommend her enough and hope that every actor can experience her care, knowledge, and the joy that she brought to every session. 

MARC LUCIA

Working with Clare has been an incredibly transformative and healing experience for me. She brought her years of experience and knowledge of the industry to the classroom and created such a safe and supportive environment where I felt encouraged to explore myself as an actor. I looked forward to her classes every week.
I wholeheartedly recommend Clare to anyone looking for an exceptional acting coach who is dedicated to nurturing talent and instilling a genuine love for the art of acting!

ASAHI HIRANO

Over the past few years, I’ve had the pleasure of being coached by Clare. Three years ago, she took me in as “green” actress and helped me develop the skills I need to showcase my talent and begin my journey.

 

She is an amazing teacher and an even better human! Patient, kind, and encouraging are a few words I would use to describe her. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a coach!

"Clare coached me for a self tape submission for an agent.  She helped me get out of my head, live in the moment, and connect with my environment in a way that she then captured on tape.  She understood exactly what was needed for the scene we taped and made the process amazingly fun!  I was signed with the agent and could not have done so without her help.  I highly recommend Clare for any coaching and taping sessions, she's the best!"
