Aviva Armour-Ostroff (actor/producer)
After almost twenty years of working in theatre, I was still new to the film and TV world. I was under the impression that TV and film acting class would be about learning which side of my face is my “good” side, or that my “hit” is 40 year old ethnic cleaning lady, but John made me feel right at home by focusing on the work. He took me back to the basics of good acting. His method is beautifully balanced by a passionate, relaxed and honest instruction. I felt comfortable asking questions and enjoyed John’s personal anecdotal responses. He made me think. He challenged me.
