1) Stretch your emotional range
Actors must be able to deliver powerfully engaging performances where the potent emotions are directly connected to the reality of the circumstances. Powerful and appropriate emotional levels are the key to being real.
2) A totally professional skillset will be absorbed FAST
No other acting process explains so clearly and so concisely the key elements of performance skill. That's why it can be learnt quickly and produce results at a high professional standard. The focus will be intense because of the small group size (maximum 12).
3) Learn to grab a directors attention with a powerful set of techniques
The most important skill an actor needs is to stand out from the crowd. That means being able to understand a director's needs but also importantly to be able to translate those requests into a performance. These techniques equip the actor to do what few actors can achieve consistently.
4) Measure your own progress
You will learn to assess your progress yourself. That puts you in charge of your learning and your career. You will be able to identify issues and find solutions. You will no longer have to rely on someone else's point of view. You will have the skills to trust your own judgements.
5) Be skilled at playing a lead role
Learn the skills of playing a lead role. Every actor in the course will play a lead in a play. Many courses have too many students to make this practical. Actors can attend a 3-year degree course and never play a lead. This course is different in many ways.
6) Be in charge of your career
You will have a clear understanding of how the industry works and how to position yourself in it. You will practice techniques that are so logical and so practical that the mumbo-jumbo of many of the acting myths will no longer befuddle your mind. You will be able to cope with difficult roles and be able to devise ways of preparing and performing the most challenging character's.
