"Dean helped prepare me for the industry in every aspect and through every step of the way: from finding an agent to auditioning to being on set. I learned the fundamentals of scene work (making strong choices, analyzing and breaking down characters, etc.) and how to practice them on a regular basis. I have benefited from his insight and advice. I believe that training is essential and there is so much to learn - Dean produces great actors!"
"Dean is one of the most important acting instructors working in North America today. His unique and transformative technique has catapulted strong actors and singers into leading players in Film + Television. Two of my young and inexperienced clients booked series leads as a direct result of working privately with Dean during the audition, callback and screen-testing process. Whenever a client has an important audition, I send them to him as he has the hightest ratio of coachings to bookings. "
