Nina was an acting coach for many years. Her notes are geared toward the detail-oriented professional, and include points that not found in other places. An actor can find hours of lifelong advice simply by viewing the “actors” section.

Nina's fundamental building block for the professional actor is script breakdown. Once you master the art of breaking down a script, you are able to bring your own unique performance to the lines you read. Once you understand actions and intentions, you are on your way to knowing the script better than the actors you’re reading against, and in many cases better than the people you’re reading for. It is indispensable training for a life in front of the camera.
