“My mission is to empower actors as I create stories that matter as much as they entertain. My passion is to add to the definition of who we are as a people through my acting, directing, and writing. I know my work matters because I see it everyday. I see it’s impact on the spirit of those I work with and I see their results. I witness these actors doing work that changes the world. I am deeply grateful to each actor that has let me be a part of their journey. I know that what we do as artist everyday is a vital part of society, it’s sacred, and I know that God is watching us.”

This picture defines me.
... to discover a way to connect more deeply, past my fear, in my own work/teachings/work facilitating other artists and to share my learning a in my business, grow it online.
To be still daily. Create time & space to live inside myself, show up in a new more fully present way.
I love stories, pictures, and heroes.
NEW & IMPROVED!
I was born to educators at the U of Michigan so it makes sense to me that the love I have for acting and directing does not compare to how I embrace coaching artists. I empower actors to use their craft to truthfully communicate anything that a human is capable of imagining. My name is Rosalyn Coleman Williams.
In my school days, I was obsessed with plays, theatre history, and the craft of acting. Since I could not get cast in a play at school or in the community, I would usher or be the stage manager. That way I could attend every performance. I memorized the shows I worked on and recited the lines as I commuted home from school. I came to love Sophocles, Erupedies, Shakespeare, theatre history, classic rules and structure of drama, as much as performing.
Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing. My classmates were my artistic heroes, as were my teachers. I decided to never give up. I percieved myself as a student with potential and despite never being cast in a single production, I have acted on Broadway, in major motion pictures and on TV. I have worked up close with some great folks, so I know that acting can be learned.
I was specifically chosen by Margie Haber, whose celebrity clients include Brad Pitt, Halle Berry and Heather Locklear among others, to be the East Coast representative of her world-famous acting studio and to teach her Cold Reading Technique. I have had the pleasure to teach students at NYU Tisch, SUNY Purchase, The Actors Center, ACT (MFA program), Actor's Connection, Howard University and Duke Ellington School of the Arts and conducted acting workshops at film festivals around the country. Another great joy in my career was to serve as on-set acting coach during the second season of HBO’s “In Treatment”.
My training and love of drama led me to direct short films. Then I started a production company with my husband, to help others use digital media to tell their stories.
To every actor I work with I offer, my passion, commitment, love of acting, training and real world experience, join me...
“We produce entertaining, thought provoking multi media content from web-series to feature films. We empower artists to tell their story and give them the tools to create their own work.

I always dreamed of having a way to make money on my own using my creativity. After Craig T. Williams came into my life, my dream became a reality. We took our wedding money and made our first film, DRIVING FISH. Our production company was born and now it's the umbrella under which all my creative work happens.
