Reads for free & accepts tips
My name is Michael, I am a classically trained actor living in Los Angeles, trying to stretch into new arenas like improv, comedy, film and TV. I can't tell you how many times I have pulled my hair out stressing over finding a reader for an audition I need to get in THAT DAY! I have passed on a number of opportunities to audition due to a lack of someone to read with. I recognize the stress that goes into feeling like you have to get something together quickly, and feeling like you haven't had enough time to prepare. As a reader I strive to be present, responsive, and alive in the moment with you. I am also able to provide helpful and specific feedback, as well as using tools like viewpoints, Michael Chekhov technique, Le Coq and my own unique tools to help you unlock scenes in a creative and less intellectual ways. I am all about helping you get a scene out of your head and into your body. I would be so honored to help you get that dream part, please feel free to reach out!
Happy to offer feedback/notes/coaching if asked. If there's a super simple thing I'm noticing that can help, I may throw it your way. Any suggestion I make comes from a place of total respect and admiration for the work, and the sincere desire to see you do your best.
PayPal is fine, but it do take its share, don't it?
Prefer Venmo @Michael-McDoanld. Yes, I misspelled my own name let's not talk about it.
