Master audition coach Tim Phillips has coached over 40,000 auditions and is still going strong, with very simple tools that get to the heart of every character and create clear and unavoidable work in actors 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 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 other actors 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, and Katherine McNamara. He continues to teach on-going classes in Los Angeles while traveling the country for 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.
The basis for all his work is the Sherlock Holmesing the Text workshop, an accessible and immediately applicable script analysis breakthrough specifically designed around the audition process. Put those tools to work in the On-Camera Audition Technique class, and when you're ready to go deeper, join a growing number of return actors who are participating in the development of Tim's Advanced Audition Technique classes.
Famed acting coach Larry Moss said about him,
“Tim Phillips taught me to be more specific than I knew I could be.”
