Jamison Haase attended the University of Minnesota Duluth, receiving his BFA in Theatre with an acting emphasis and moved to Minneapolis shortly after graduating. There he worked in theater, commercials, and film, but after joining SAG and AFTRA, he struck out for Los Angeles in January of 2000. After some very limited success, Jamison realized that his theater training had left him ill prepared for the film and television industry of L.A., and he immediately started focusing and training solely on camera technique. After many years of working with other actors, producers, writers and directors in film and TV, in 2007, Jamison opened L.A. On-Camera Training Center, where he shares his expertise and knowledge with other actors striving to work on-camera in the film and television industry. There, Jamison specializes in teaching the tips and technique required for hour-long television and dramatic features. Using a simple hands-on approach to on-camera and audition techniques, Jamison helps build confidence and puts the actor back in their rightful place, as creators in the process of film making.
Jamison has worked with the likes of Robert Duvall, Robert Downey Jr., Billy Bob Thornton, Ken Howard and Cliff Curtis. and has been seen in many films and television shows, notably ‘NCIS LA,' 'Castle,’ ‘Bones,’ ‘24,’ ‘Mad Men,’ the feature films ‘The Judge,’ ‘Crossing Over,’ the fourth installment of the ‘Transformers’ franchise, and is currently recurring on ‘The Last Ship.’
Jackie Geary has most recently had the distinction of providing some comic relief to Columbia Pictures’ action feature WHITE HOUSE DOWN alongside Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. No stranger to appearing in films with impressive names, Geary previously graced the big screen in Academy Award-winning director Curtis Hanson’s IN HER SHOES with Shirley MacLaine, Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette for producers Tony and Ridley Scott. She is a familiar face on television as well, having recently appeared on the likes of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, WEEDS, SUBURGATORY, RIZZOLI & ISLES, NCIS, BONES, CASTLE, UNITED STATES OF TARA, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, and in the memorable Fanilow episode of WILL & GRACE. Acting was not exactly an expected transition upon earning her degree in Women’s History from Barnard, but it runs in the family; her great-grandfather, Hans Tobar, was a famous stage actor in Cologne, Germany (in fact her grandmother, Hans’ daughter, fled Nazi Germany at the age of 13). She credits her analytical Barnard education, combined with her love of comedy, for the technique she teaches at L.A. On-Camera. Marrying head instructor Jamison Haase didn't hurt either.
