Paul's foundational book, Acting on Camera, lays out his modern method for rapid-preparation, on-camera acting. In contrast to classic preparation methodologies, this book teaches actors how to prepare for both their role and the demands of the industry in a compressed time-frame.
“Be careful of your thoughts; they may become words at any moment”. Lara Gassen
“Paul’s passion for acting and teaching is infectious. I caught the bug from him early on, only to learn (25 years later) that it’s incurable! Among the many things he taught me (like how to act, for one), was the old axiom originally coined by Cervantes: ‘The Road is better than the Inn.’ I’ve been lucky enough to stay a night or two at the Inn recently, and can vouch for its validity. Moreover, under no circumstances would I be where I am (be it at the Inn, or on the Road to the next one) if it weren’t for the last 25 years with Paul as my mentor.”
I’ve worked with many actors over the years that have studied with Paul in his three-step process. I have been impressed with their honest connection to script and character. I encourage anyone serious about acting to read his book and study with Paul. - Dan Lauria
”Finding an acting coach that will challenge you to achieve your goals is important. Finding a coach that instructs from their own successful and personal experiences who cares about yours, is even more important.” - Zen Gesner
Having worked professionally for over 35 years in the Entertainment Industry, 15 of those as a former agency owner, I’ve worked with many acting teachers/coaches and on-camera talent. Paul Rohrer, his instructional technique, and his students have always led that list.
A teaching/nurturing legacy like that is only produced through talent, a tested and proven instructional program and undying dedication and love for his students. Paul is a proven teacher who draws out the best of his student’s talents while feeding their passion and building confidence in their inspiration and abilities. It has been a pleasure through the years to watch the loyalty and support from former students as they return to honor his instruction and heartfelt support. Peter DeAnello
I’ve known Paul for many years and have experienced & observed his talent workshops and special classes firsthand on multiple occasions. Sometimes I’ve participated as a guest speaker for his groups. Whenever and HOWever I’ve been involved with Paul’s endeavors, I’ve come away inspired and impressed with his teaching skills , professional yet patient approach and genuine caring heart for his participants and students. He is, for sure, the real deal and, if anyone is fortunate enough to have Paul Rohrer as an instructor and mentor... he or she is fortunate indeed!
Paul Rohrer is like the hero in an epic fantasy: a wise, fearless and wildly creative professional who inspires others to rise to face any challenge. I'm excited every time I get the opportunity to work with him and am always better each time I do. If you get the chance to see him work his magic, you'll be a believer too! If you find yourself struggling to choose between talent and professionalism, pick Paul!
