ROD ROWLAND COACHING
Hey, I'm Rod....The professional actor that coaches and mentors actors privately who truly want to act on the professional level, help get placed with an agent, start auditioning and land real acting jobs.
WHAT THIS ISN'T
THIS IS NOT another boring 6 hour marathon acting class or seminar held in an old musty theatre, taught by an ex-actor with decades old TV bit parts on his resume. Training you in some technique that the they themselves could never use to land an acting job. NOR is this a class where the individual attention is so limited it takes years and tens of thousands of dollars to possibly evolve your skills to the professional level. I personally spent countless years as a student actor in that frustrating environment.
WHAT IT IS
This is a private, one-on-one, totally focused on “You” complete acting mentorship taught by an actor with over 100 series regular, recurring or guest lead TV credits and numerous films. Who only recently has worked as a recurring or guest lead on TWIN PEAKS, SECRETS and LIES, GREYS ANATOMY, NCIS NEW ORLEANS, SECRETS AND LIES, THOSE WHO KILL, NCIS, CASTLE, RED WIDOW, THE MENTALIST, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, LONGMIRE, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI, THE GLADES. But even beyond that was discovering a way to explain, and teach my acting system to newer and beginning actors. A system that due to the individual focus you'll recieve will allow even a brand new actor to deliver professonal caliber work, get placed with an agent and start auditioning in as little as 4 months. Thats one-twentieth the time it would take in a regular acting school, thus sparing you the nightmarish, time and money-wasting struggle I went through.
"Unbelievable! After completeing Rod's system my first audition was a recurring role on 'SONS OF ANARCHY', I ended up shooting 7 episodes. Rod was the best investment I ever made." ~Josh Nasar~
WHAT I WONT LET HAPPEN TO YOU
In all honesty my entire twenties as an actor were wasted because I trusted the wrong self-proclaimed acting experts. Imagine my frustration when I kept discovering that their grand pretentious techniques and ways of training were useless when it came what was really required of me in an audition room. It was like I had never trained at all.
Even after becoming a working actor and training with other acclaimed coaches very little of my thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars of training were truly useful to what was demanded of me when auditioning or on set. Why was this?
The sad fact is that 96% of the acting coaches in America are just failed actors who at best maybe landed a bit role or two in their entire career.They will think nothing of charging you a lot of money to be trusted with your dreams only to teach you an outdated technique that never worked for them. A technique that they never truly understood, and were never able to ever use successfully under pressure in an audition room.
Can you imagine a failed Doctor teaching you to be a surgeon? There is a reason none of them put their own acting on their websites, if they did you would run.
WHAT WE'LL DO
Privately. One-on-one, with me: a veteran and working actor as your scene partner. I will teach you either in person or over Skype or Facetime an acting formula that cost me over $100K training costs, hundreds of major auditions, and thousands of hours on set to dial in and perfect for myself. It will be taught to you in a 100% beginner friendly, curriculum format that will be customized to your personal strengths, weaknesses, age, and type. Taught to you in such a unique and powerful way that it will be ingrained into you, so that you can duplicate it effortlessly after only 14 one-hour sessions.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
After your 14 personalized acting sessions you will fully own an acting formula that you will allow you to deliver professional level acting in an audition room, thus launching you into your professional career.
But more than that this acting system will:
-Allow you to bring out the most dynamic part of yourself with dimension and power and put it right into your characters.
-Permit you to take any kind of direction asked of you in an audition room or on a set – making you a valuable asset to any production.
-Allow to break down a character, and make choices with the role that will consistently wow and thrill anybody that witnesses your work making you an in demand actor.
-Take away that nervous terror of auditioning, because you will truly understand how to prepare and execute like a seasoned pro.
-turns undecipherable acting techniques and theories that were like Latin to me when I was new, into tools you absolutely own and control.
-Allow you to turn mediocre characters into something special and make them pop.
-grant you the ability to play types of characters and roles you never thought possible.
A system that will be taught you in such a special way, you will be able to use it in just a few short months, what personally took me over 20 years to truly understand and use consistently. All this will happen because I’m your guinea pig, you will be gaining from all my mistakes and successes. Put into a personalized curriculum using exercises that I created that will cover a thousand errors you now wont have to make in the professional world.
SKYPE AND FACETIME
My studio is located in North Hollywood California. But because of the miracle of modern technology and the fact that I'm a strictly private coach, I can teach this system over Skype or FaceTime to my out of town students with the same exact results. Now students don't have to worry that they live in a city with terrible acting schools or none at all. No more having to move to expensive places like New York or LA and live for years so they can train. You can now stay at home, learn the system and arrive in Hollywood ready to be a working actor.
SO NOW WHAT? IT'S TIME TO GET YOU AN AGENT!
Lets place you with an acting agent, and start auditioning. But understand this, acting agents make money when you book an acting job. If they believe you can make them money they will gladly represent you and sell you to casting directors that will then invite you to audition. But realize this: to be able to get a worthwhile agent and get real professional TV and Film auditions your acting must be at the same level of the actors you see in TV or film. If its not, you will not get an agent. That’s why we wait until you’ve completed the curriculum to start the process of placing you with an agent, otherwise trying to get an agent would be futile for you.
Even so finding an agent even for a seasoned professional can be the most difficult part of the business. A worthwhile agent will only consider you with a personnel referral from an inside connection. That’s why you will be connected with my associate whose decade in the business as a professional actor and producer has given him countless contacts and connections that you will get to take advantage of. His artist placement business is far and away the best in in the country. No mater where you live, he can get you with an agent.
My father was a Famous swim coach who developed many Olympians. I understand what a Real coach is at a genetic level. You will be trained like an athlete with the goal of turning pro. I understand to the deepest level the work ethic and level of craft needed to be a consistent working pro actor, because I am one myself. I’m going fill you with that to the core of your being
"Its been kinda shocking actually. Rod took me from totally clueless beginner to an actor with a great agent and auditioning for major TV shows in 5 months. What else is there to say. My dream of being a professional actor is actually happening." ~Bo Yokely~
If what you are is a new actor, you've hit the jackpot. Rod's true gift is taking a beginning actor from zero to professional. He has the very rare ability to make unexplainable acting concepts understandable and immediatly usable. ~Gillian Anderson: actor-'The XFiles'
"Rod's coaching was my missing link, after one month with him I booked the new Batman 'The Dark Night Returns,' and huge guests spots in 'Justified,' and 'CSI NY.' And now that 3 years working with him has passed my resume is further padded with the movie 'Jobs', 'Seven Psychopaths', and now a lead role across from Nicolas Cage in 'Joe', as well as 13 guest spots and a recurring on HBO'S 'True Detective'. Finding Rod has been like finding gold. ~~Ronnie Blevins: actor~~
"Rod's a working actor so he gets it. His coaching and experience prepared for all the things that could happen on set. He's my secret weapon". ~~Travis Fimmel: actor-'Vikings', 'Warcraft'
"Rod did it again. I just finished spending 3 months working with Quentin Taratino on 'Django Unchained' with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx. Thanks to him my careers in a place I've only dreamed of." ~~Sammi Rotibi: actor-'Django Unchained,' 'Tears of the Sun', 'Lord of War'.
