That's What She Said
Two things make an exceptional coach in my experience. Training and a God-given gift to connect with the human in front of you. Tristen not only has the tools to take your life to the next level, she has the intuition and heart to make your experience as unique as you are.
Happy Actors is THE place to be to complete the equation of Artistry + Business to equal a fulfilling and successful career! Founded by the huge-hearted actors’ advocate, Tristen MacDonald, Happy Actors is a resource and community like no other. Actionable advice, invaluable insight, and positive people!
Tristen is an amazing person to have on your team and in your corner. If you're embarking on anything new or need some motivation on a long term goal, she will help you get there!
The most intuitively, inventively, funny person alive... and the most accessible teacher! Serious about the craft of acting to the "T" but never takes the fun out of the experience! Love Tristen!
Tristen is someone who I really trust to give me great advice about the business. She's a woman who knows what she's talking about. So smart and FUN to work with. Her writing sessions are so informative and well planned out. I still use what I've learned from her every time I work on my own projects! Invaluable!
I coached with Tristen for the lead in a huge film. She gave me super specific notes that totally punched up the comedy and we tried the scenes from a bunch of different angles. The result: I knew the material backwards and forwards and was super loose in the room. In fact, I was so confident with my work that I really had FUN in the audition. Oh... and I booked it!
I am full of ideas but not full of structure and focus! Through working with Tristen I've really been able to treat my projects like actual work and not just these magical things that will hopefully just appear. Having a process to attack creative ideas is the missing link in successful writing.
