Things People Are Saying About Kristy

You’re acting ability only counts for about one fifth of your acting career. There is a level of good enough acting that you need to reach in order to be bookable. Once you are past that point, it has a lot more to do with whether or not you’re working the business side of ‘show business.’ You must understand everything else that you need to be doing to make your acting career happen besides just good acting.

The only trait more compelling than Kristina’s passion for the craft is her dedication to the actor. She worked tirelessly on and off set with the actors to shape solid performances from an enigmatic script and is the only acting coach I know who works more hours than I do in production! Kristina began the film with one actor, but by the end of the shoot her wisdom and support was sought after by them all. Her understanding of each aspect of film, from writing to production to direction, enables Kristina to push her clients and take a character off the paper and construct it for an audience, the camera, and the world that it was meant for. J.C. - 1st AD on Feature Film

I’m not interested in you being the best person in your acting class (that is not an achievement to broadcast, it actually means you are not growing), I’m interested in you getting paid to consistently act at an actual acting JOB!

We had Kristy on location of my most recent production and I can't even begin to imagine that set without her energy. She knows exactly when to make herself heard and when to just let her presence be enough. I would highly recommend her and can't wait to work with her again.

If you aren’t reading every script you can get your hands on or watching every show on television then how do expect people to pay you lots of money to be a professional actor?!? This is an industry that is changing right now more than ever, if you aren’t up to date with what’s in the zeitgeist right now then how the hell can you know how to do it?

Things Kristy is Guilty of Saying

You have to work with the reality of where you are right now. You have to keep working to go to the next step. If, by some miracle you get to bypass steps, that is wonderful, but prepare yourself because you are going to have to work that much harder to maintain that new level.

Things Kristy is Guilty of Saying

Do you ever wonder why mediocre actors often work more than great actors? Mediocrity is fairly consistent and when it drops out, it just isn’t that noticeable. But when we see great actors and they drop out we are so disappointed because we have tasted what is possible. Now, I don’t recommend you dropping down to the level of a mediocre actor, but be fucking consistent in your greatness. Consistency equals longevity in your acting career.
