“When it comes to Kathleen Warner Yeates, it is easy to talk about her influence on me as an actor. She taught (and continues to) show me new, exciting and scary ways to approach this art, she will push you in directions and make you ask questions with and about your character you would not think to go, do or ask. She is a true professor of the art, I look forward to a day when I can humbly share a stage or screen with her” – Robbie Walsh (Multiple award winning film and TV actor, director, producer.)
“…She is that rare being – a talent in her own right who shares her knowledge of the craft as an effective and compelling teacher. If you want to identify your own talent or refine it or perfect it – no matter where you are on the spectrum of the actor’s journey – take some lessons from Kathleen. You will learn so much.“ – Megan Day
“Walking through the doors of the Abbey (Now Flying Turtle Productions) literally changed my life. It introduced me to a world of creativity I didn’t know existed and I got to meet great people and began to develop my craft in a safe environment. Kathleen sets the tone, calm, inviting and encouraging. I’ll be forever grateful to her.” – John Connors (IFTA Award for Best Actor)
“…Her attention to detail, positive direction and warm personality really helped me throughout these courses, as I discovered a lot about the craft and discipline of acting which I had not known prior to training with her… I would highly recommend Kathleen as a tutor as there is it will only provide more substantial and necessary experience for actors, but it will also make you progress artistically.” – Brian Gilligan
“The best decision I ever made throughout my Actor Training and Development was to sign up with Kathleen Warner Yeates…Kathleen is one of the rare Teachers and Acting Coaches that lives and works from the heart and it shows in everything she does. The courses are well structured and enjoyable, her classes have a purpose, destination and a goal. There is written course material, references to specific acting methods as well as various specialised guest speakers apart from the weekly scene work. Every session is well prepared and thought through and every week is an improvement of your skills. Kathleen puts her heart and soul into these classes, going the extra mile to coach individual students if they are struggling with something always making time for individual needs….” –Dagmar Baar
“I took the 7 week Acting for Camera course to work on my confidence on camera. I had previous camera training and experience in film and commercials but had come back to auditioning after a hiatus and felt rigid and nervous on camera. The class was capped at 10 students which was perfect, and everyone received some on-camera time each week, followed by viewing and constructive comments. In just 7 short weeks we all improved as actors and got a better idea of what works and doesn’t work for us….. I have since gone for on-camera auditions for ads and even a major feature film, and the difference in my confidence is palpable. I highly recommend this course and other courses with Kathleen and Flying Turtle productions. “ – Georgia Snow.
