Book A Private Weekend Appointment at My Classroom Space in Kihei

Film and Television acting opportunities are coming to Maui. Will you be prepared to give your BEST audition on your FIRST attempt? Working with professional actors for over 30 years in Hollywood has taught me many useful approaches that I can share with you. The space is air conditioned and private.

  • The goal is 3 Fold:
  1. To achieve excellence as a self-directed actor capable of making great instinctive choices.
  2. To achieve excellence to the challenges of re-directions as an adaptable actor who can improvise as well.
  3. And to ultimately grow as an actor/artist with range. 

What is my training approach? We will try many challenges for acting on camera, including the audition interview, cold reading, re-directions & rehearsed scenes and then utilize instant replay with notes. You take home your session’s work on a thumb drive for further study. This is a smart & efficient way to accelerate your development.

WHEN: 2 Hour Appointments are available on Saturdays and Sundays from the hours of 10:00Am to 4:00PM

WHERE: In Kihei at the air conditioned modular classrooms of the Montessori Hale o Keiki School. The address: 100 Kulanihakoi St., midway between Piilani Hwy and Kihei Rd. on the grounds of The Trinity Episcopal Church by the Sea.

A Collaborative Effort to Achieve Artistic Growth and Excellence in Acting

     I work WITH my actors to achieve growth and results in their chosen craft.
   Working on a dramatic scene in the safe confines of my new studio location in Kihei this past Saturday were two very talented actors, Robert ‘Beau’ Tackmann & Zsa Zsa Greenberg. Beau’s character needed to show tenderness & reassurance while Zsa Zsa’s character was all about fear of the unknown. We watched the replays with notes then they were sent home with a copy on their flash drives to view and evaluate at their leisure.
    The thrust of my coaching centers on this approach in order to help my actors achieve excellence and growth as Adaptable & Self-Directed artists with Range. Yes, I am known as an improv funnyman/teacher…. but one doesn’t have to “humiliate students into a good performances” in order to achieve seriously good results!

Sincerely, Dan Weisman

Stillness on camera is a skill set to embrace as demonstrated by the great actress Ingrid Bergman in 'Casablance' and many other films.
