Jeff "Dock" Dockweiler has become one of the best young acting coaches in Hollywood. With a list that includes big budget features, indie films, primetime television dramas, half-hour sit-coms and daytime dramas, Dock's clients have succeeded in booking jobs in every facet of the business. Dock's coaching career started with a bang and perhaps his most challenging coaching opportunity when he was hired by ABC as the on-set coach for the final year and a half of the Emmy Award winning daytime drama All My Children. Dock says, "preparing 500 pages of script per week for 30 different characters ranging from 5-65 years of age was a mountainous task that quickly made me able to tackle any script in any situation. I could not have asked for a better/faster way to master my skills as a storyteller." In addition to his private and on-set coaching successes, Dock has spent more than a decade lecturing across the US with John Homa, presenting their Actor's Point of View workshops that focus on "acting and the business of acting". Truly one who practices what he preaches, Dock has also gained valuable experience in every aspect of the business covering production, directing and most important to him, writing. Dock credits his writing abilities to the 5 years he was fortunate enough to spend working for and learning from the most prolific writer/producer in television history, Stephen J. Cannell. It is the culmination of all of these experiences and skills that he uses to help his clients succeed on the highest level.
