Vancouver Acting School is committed to bringing in some of the top Casting Directors, Coaches, Actors, Directors and Producers from Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and around the world. We will bring in the “A” list Guest Speakers as our city has been home to some of the bigger productions in recent years and we want to see more work go to our local talent.
We're very excited to host Larry Moss for his third workshop with VAS:
Chris Fields: Master Coach Series - March 9 & 10, 2013
Larry Moss: Master Coach Series - TBA 2013
Master Coach Series: Los Angeles - with Chris Fields
Join VAS as we welcome Chris Fields for a special two day workshop March 9 & 10, 2013.
As an Ovation and LA Weekly award nominated director, Chris has worked with Adam Rapp, Sarah Ruhl, David Lindsay-Abaire and Christopher Durang.
As an actor, he’s worked with Directors David Fincher, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Ron Howard.
As a teacher, he’s taught Peter Facinelli, Emily Bergyl, Ethan Embry, Emily Rose, Scott Wolf, Kirk Acevedo and Zach Quinto, to name a few.
Now he’s coming to Vancouver.
It’s about the work. Two days.
"Chris Fields will get you out of your head. His knowledge, commitment to his students, and enthusiasm make the Chris Fields Acting Studio a place for actors to play, and remember why they started acting in the first place." - David Giuntoli, Grimm
"When I have off between jobs I love taking scene study class with Chris Fields. He provides a safe environment to continue working on and experimenting with my craft while being guided by a teacher that understands that truth is the core of acting." - Peter Facinelli, Twiglight Saga
"I have worked with Chris every opportunity available to me for the last eight years. I love the way he works with his actors, his insights into the characters and material and what the actor does with them and most of all the care and interest he shows for his students. He helped me tremendously and I am extremely grateful for all the time and effort he gave me and everyone else in class." - Mitch Pileggi, Supernatural/Gray's Anatomy/Sons of Anarchy/ X-Files
"In my humble opinion, what our art form (acting) lacks, is a degree of individual integrity that keeps the artist pursuing a mastery of their craft and to better themselves as human beings; there seems to be little interest in creating something beautiful, for it's own sake. Chris Fields has great integrity. He is an artist. He believes in the actor, the theater, and the human spirit. He is father, actor, director, teacher, and artistic director; all done with care and such compassion, you can actually see him bleed. Chris has directed me twice, and on both occasions he has guided me with tender and empowering hands, communicating his vision clearly and without hitting me over the head with lofty directions, we created something simple and true, both times. As a teacher, he'll not only give you the tools to apply in all your professional work, but he'll remind you of how special you are for what you do, and the great responsibility you have as an actor. He really is one of those people who want to create something beautiful for it's own sake." - Enrico Colantoni, Flashpoint/Veronica Mars/Just Shoot Me

Master Coach Series: New York - with Larry Moss
This is the Hollywood coach that today's most sought after talents call upon when they need to be at their best!
Are you ready to see what that level looks like?
We had four coaches take this workshop last year and all four booked series this pilot season (as well as multiple episodic and feature film work too!)
Larry's unwavering commitment to his craft, his encyclopedic knowledge of the arts, and his sincere enthusiasm for the art of acting itself make his process exciting, inspiring and truly transformational as an actor. I would recommend his technique and process not only to first timers, but also seasoned veterans of the craft." - Leonardo DiCaprio, Actor
"Larry continues to inspire me to search fearlessly for the truth in the character I am playing and in myself as a human being. I am in awe of this profoundly gifted, articulate teacher." - Hilary Swank, Actor
"Larry Moss picks up the mantle from Stella Adler, Sandy Meisner, and a handful of others, breathing life and love into the craft of acting for a whole new generation of artists" - Gary Ross, Writer and Director
