DIALECT COACHING TO ME
I love langauges and I love pronunciation. I love teaching Italian pronunciation as well as coaching actors for Italian as well as several regional Italian dialects.
Being an expert, I look at the words first from a regional, historical and factual point of view. The italian language as well as all the dialects have changed considerably over the dacades.
- Who is talking?
- From what area the character is?
- From what class?
- What year it is?
To me, dialect coaching is understanding the script and give the best solution for the actor I am working with and for the play/series/film the actor is in it.
