ON-SET :: ON-LOCATION :: ADR :: ACTOR PREP
Having coached numerous feature films, network television series, theatrical productions, voiceover, and as the official dialect coach for
Universal Studios' Wizarding World of Harry Potter,
DR. DIALECT CAN HELP!
Along with his accolades and expertise as an industry dialect coach, P.J. Ochlan brings decades of acting experience to his production work. He speaks the actors' language.
An accent is meant to enhance a performance, not hinder it. Too often, accents dictate performances because actors fall into the trap of thinking 'accent = character.' P.J. helps actors approach their character's accent as a technical element - not unlike memorizing dialogue or hitting marks. This process frees actors to bring complexity and honesty to their performances just as they would for roles not requiring an accent. With the accent not standing in the way of the on-set creative process, the path is clear for actors and directors to actively work together in the moment.
Having worked on sets regularly since 1986, P.J. Ochlan understands the importance of time, flexibility and etiquette during production. He is tremendously well regarded for his exceptional communication and unparalleled work ethic.
P.J. Ochlan is exceptionally resourceful at swiftly and successfully guiding actors to where they need to be. He has been brought on to several productions last-minute and in emergency situations, and with very limited prep has consistently delivered outstanding results.
Whether your production requires pre-production prep work with actors, on-set coaching or post-production fixing in ADR - P.J. Ochlan brings experience and excellence to it all.
