Patrick Tucker, is far and away the most useful teacher on creating a great acting practice I’ve ever encountered. His teachings were responsible for me going from what was supposed to be just one episode on Heroes to a recurring character in the last three seasons of the show.

He is a veteran UK television and film director (and much sought after acting teacher), His Secrets of Screen Acting takes a very technical approach to acting for the camera. The art is there, to be sure, but this fills in all of the gaps that traditional acting classes leave behind in their zeal to teach you the art of acting. Being comfortable in front of the camera, and knowing what works and what doesn’t, can often be the difference between getting and not getting the gig.

It is all amazingly useful material, from how to manage the shooting frame to how to manage your vocal levels., revealed also is just how those dramatic shots we all remember from our favourite movies got caught on film or video, and how you as an actor can help the director achieve amazing results.

Offered also are a series of exercises that you and your fellow actors can put to immediate use, and which will increase your chances at auditions, call backs and, most importantly, booked gigs on-set. Knowing how the crew works, knowing what questions to ask and of whom, even understanding what all of the crew roles are, dovetails into the acting training you get from Patrick Tucker.

As I said, it can change your acting life. It certainly did for me.

Patrick Tucker has proved himself to be without doubt the king of Screen Acting teachers, and in my over thirty years in the business I have never encountered anything like his approach, when you first come across his simple but extremely powerful techniques, they straight away propel you to a different level of acting in film and on tv, it is nothing short of mind blowing.
