Paul Lauden

"Jake has been instrumental in my career. His coaching and 20 years in the entertainment industry have guided me in such a positive direction. With his insight, I've signed with a top commercial agent, manager, joined a prestigious theater company and signed on as a writer/performer for a new talk show. I'm very thankful and appreciative to be working with with Jake."

"Jake is my go to acting coach for commercials, TV, Soaps, and Hosting. He breaks everything down for me quickly so I understand what I need to book the job. He always helps me find something unique about my performance that keeps me working!"

"Jake was an incredible teacher... by FAR my favorite! If I were considering taking his classes again... Without hesitation, I’d run to get in line for his class! You won’t be disappointed! Thanks for everything Jake! You truly are the best!"

What's My Approach?

Coaching for me is finding the essence of the character thru the written dialogue, physical actions & tone of voice. Making simple, specific choices that make sense yet are unique, is the secret to creating memorable characters that still seem true to life. Asking yourself : who, what, where, when & why is the first step. From there finding interesting choices in the delivery is what books you the job!
