Master audition coach Tim Phillips has coached over 50,000 auditions during his 35 years of teaching and is still going strong, with simple tools that get to the heart of every character and create clear and unavoidable auditions that get you work at every level. 
Tim's work grew out of the Meisner technique for stage and expanded to specialize in film and television, where he earned his acting chops alongside Robert Duvall, Meryl Streep, and Klaus Maria Brandauer. 
Tim's insight has ignited the careers of Emmy winner Richard Schiff, Emmy & Golden Globe nominee Wendy Malick, Robert Wisdom, Bruce Nozick, Nancy Travis, Roma Maffia, and thousands of others who are series regulars, recurring, and top of show guest stars on television and in feature film today.  
Celebrity students have included Justin Timberlake, Molly Simms, Jane Brook, Joanne Baron, Justin Chatwin, Kate del Castillo, Katherine McNamara, and Robert Wisdom.  He continues to teach on-going classes in New York while traveling the country for On-Camera Intensives in New York, Atlanta, New Orleans, and San Francisco. 
His book 'Audition For Your Career, Not The Job,' published in 2011, is now required reading for second year students at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York & Los Angeles and at New York Film Academy. 
His unique approach to the text is fully explored in the Sherlock Holmesing the Text workshop, an accessible and immediately applicable breakthrough process that puts an end to analysis at the intellectual level and gets actors back into their bodies and into character.  
Famed acting coach Larry Moss, who studied with Tim at one point, said about him,
“Tim Phillips taught me to be more specific than I knew I could be.”
