"Something clicks in every class. It’s an amazing feeling - knowing that you are going to learn something profound but you are yet to have any idea of what that is until it happens. I return each week excited knowing that I am about to experience this." 

What will be covered in this course?

1) Casting Directors want you to be able to change

Actors with university degree courses (like NIDA) are taught to find the perfect performance for a scene.  But in the professional audition room Casting Directors know there isn't one perfect version of a scene.  Casting Directors know there are many options for a scene and the professional actor who can see lots of possibilities is an actor who can take direction.

2) Surprise the Casting Director with your skill

An actor who creates characters that experience real 'moments of surprise' stands out in the audition room and on the set. All the great actors play beautiful moments of surprise. Learn techniques for playing surprises that are ONLY TAUGHT HERE. Moments of surprise are the key to being real in performance.

3) Engage an audience and you will engage a Director

Directors want to hire actors who can engage an audience with the comedy or the drama.  If you can totally engage an audience with your performance, the professionals who want to hire you will instantly recognize your skills.

4) Gain a modern understanding of Stanislavski techniques

This is a no bullshit approach to traditional theories. It cuts through the complexities of other acting processes and explains them in a simple common sense language. You will be empowered by your new understanding of Stanislavski process. This is an acting process that makes sense.

5) Understand story so you can break a scene down quickly

Instead of questioning if you actually understand the story of a scene. Learn how to break down story effortlessly every time.

6) Remove confusions and clearly measure your success

Instead of walking out of an audition feeling flat and confused. Learn how to make every audition count. Acquire skills that enable you to measure your success.
