Coach for actors, directors and young talents

Julia Jentsch won the award as Best Actress at the German TV Award 2018 for "Das Verschwinden" (Disappeared).

I am so happy for her! And a tiny bit proud, too because we did the preparation together.

"Massive Dreams"- a project for dancers created by choreographer Antje Velsinger.

During rehearsals in January and February 2018 I coached the dancers and helped them express their intimate needs through body and speech. It is very exciting for me to work with dancers. We all have the same goal, to be truthful and precise and to express our vision of todays world. The means of expression are different but the need is the same.

The Jewish Dog is a beautiful novel from Asher Kravitz and will be shot in Budapest in October and November 2017

directed by Lynn Roth. It is a Low Budget Production from L.A, USA and everyone involved is committed to this touching and beautiful script. The story of the Holocaust told through the eyes of a dog and his best friend, the jewish boy Joshua. I am happy to be part of the making of this film as a dialect coach. We want all characters played by American, Israelian, Hungarian and German actors to have a similar accent to their English. Exciting.

Film Festival in Munich 22 June to 1 July 2017

The Vanishing, a mini series directed by Hans Christian Schmid, has its world premiere at the Munich Film Festival. I prepared and coached Julia Jentsch, the female leading character. Intense, challenging and very satisfying.

Julia Jentsch is the mother of 20 year old Janine who disappears mysteriously in a small Bavarian town. She starts to search for her daughter at her own risk and what she discovers bit by bit will keep you glued to the screen.

Axolotl Overkill, June 2017

Laura Tonke in Axolotl Overkill by Helene Hegemann, plays the half-sibling of 16 year old Mifti. I prepared Laura in this unconventional movie and her performance is exquisite. 

Mifti, age 16, lives in Berlin with her half-siblings, her rich, self-involved father and her junkie friend Ophelia. As she mourns her recently deceased mother, she begins to develop an obsession with Alice, an enigmatic, and much older, white-collar criminal.
