Sam Stiglitz is one of the most sought-after acting and audition coaches in La La Land. Her passion is helping actors find their own path into a role, and to quickly ready them for auditions.
Known for turning non-actors into working actors, Stiglitz has traveled the world teaching her audition technique classes.
“My focus as a coach is helping actors find their unique way into scenes, [and] also helping them understand that auditioning and acting are two separate art forms,” she says.
Stiglitz works with film and TV actors, music stars, athletes and social media influencers, among others. As a casting director, she has worked for some of the top studios in Los Angeles, casting for shows such as Burn Notice, Graceland, Pretty Little Liars, School of Rock, Body of Proof, as well as numerous feature films.
Audition Pro LA: the brainchild of Sam Stiglitz
After years of working in the creative side of casting, Stiglitz fell in love with coaching. She founded Audition Pro LA, which has grown to become one of the premier acting and audition coaching studios in Los Angeles.
Stiglitz doesn’t believe that acting is one-size-fits-all. Her stellar reputation as a coach is built on her hands-on approach, tailoring training sessions to fit each student’s specific needs.
“I change my approach from actor to actor. I learn about each client and use their idiosyncrasies to create unique processes,” she says.
She also believes that auditioning and acting are two separate art forms. Audition Pro LA bridges the gap between those two.
“I have so many clients who were in a scene study class and come to me and say ‘I crushed it in that class; I was amazing, but when I got to the audition, I didn’t do a good job.’ That’s because these are two different scenarios,” Stiglitz explains.
Sam connects the dots between these scenarios. She is determined not to let a generation of actors slip through the cracks because they weren’t properly prepared for the audition process.
Getting started in the entertainment industry can be tough, and a good acting and audition coach is a vital step in improving your on-screen performance and connecting you with others in the industry.
Stiglitz’s unrivaled expertise can help you discover your voice as an actor, audition successfully, stay on track and avoid setbacks.
