Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Hollywood Acting Coach
Bernard Hiller
An Exclusive Video Interview

Bernard Hiller
I first met Hollywood acting coach Bernard Hiller (pictured here to the left) about several years ago in one of his 5-day master acting classes. It was an experience I will never forget. Stimulating. Practical. Moving. Technical. All those things are characteristics of that class led by a man who has more than thirty years of experience in the industry and who cares enough about his students to push them to their limits and thus help them to achieve breakthroughs in their craft. Bernard teaches acting classes in LA as well as in different countries around the world.

Since then Bernard Hiller and I have kept in touch. I visited him at his Hollywood home and interviewed him just for you. If you are serious about pursuing an acting career, this 9-minute video is a must-watch! You will learn from Bernard's wisdom and experience. Enjoy.

Did you see the part of the video about what he said about the importance of a mentor? If not, go back and watch it. I've been saying that for a long time now. If you don't know what a mentor is then have a look at this page by clicking here.

Also, here is where you can find a mentor and the characteristics a mentor needs to have.

How long you can expect it to take to get your acting career going if you have a mentor or if you don't.

Hollywood acting coach Bernard Hiller has another interview here on ActingCareerStartUp.com in which, among other things, he talks specifically about 7 things you need to do if you are thinking of starting an acting career in LA.

Bernard Hiller is an acting coach in Los Angeles who has been teaching acting and success coaching for more than thirty years. He also conducts Master acting classes in twellve different countries around the world. They are: Germany, UK, Italy, France, Greece, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Isreal, Taiwan, Scotland and Spain. He is what I call a motivational acting coach. He will get into technique, but scratching the surface. His real strength is getting you off your ass to do something to get your acting career started and in motivating you. You will leave his class with a rush of adrenaline which will awaken any sleeping acting career giant within you. As a matter of fact, I call him "the great motivator"! Only contact him if you are serious about taking one of his classes. If you are, you just might find that soon he will be holding a class near you!

In the meantime, you can also grab a copy of his new book here below.
