My Mission

digital physical therapist

Throughout the world history mankind  always has suffered from stage fright. In over 10 years as a Character Animator working together with digital actors I experienced that even in the digital world stage fright is a widespreaded phenomenon – but with much more embarrassing effects resulting in what I call the “T-Pose-Syndrome”. Symptoms of the T-Pose-Syndrome are the complete incapability to move and communicate triggered by the sudden fear to failure as soon as a curtain opens or a camera turns on. Affected digital Actors find themselfs standing stiff with outstretched arms desperately revealed to the audience – not able to even blink. A horrible Nightmare and a traumatizing Experience for many digital Actors.

My Mission is to help affected digital Actors to find a way back on Stage so that they are capable to unfold their full acting potential again and to retrieve their self confidence after such traumatizing Experiences . With over 10 years of Experience in digital Computer Animation I know how to teach them to find expressive Poses combined with convincing facial expressions for thrilling outstanding acting moments. No more T-Pose-Syndrome once and for all – guaranteed!
