IN WEBINAR 4 - the actors were cast
IN WEBINAR 5 - we explore fantastic, simple techniques that enable actors to create characters and change them in seconds. Director's to control the outcomes and the discussion.
THEN IN WEBINAR 6 - the directors apply the processes and the actors deliver their performances.
Richard Sarell is one of the best teachers of acting. The world is lucky to have him in it and I’m so happy I found The Rehearsal Room. Wish I found it years ago! Time and money well spent!

THE WEBINAR PLAN
To explore the techniques that have been 35 years in development to bring a new clarity to acting technique. Why 70% of actors make the same mistake in the audition room and how to fix it is the latest revelation from this remarkable approach.
These processes will be shared with two emerging directors so that they can then test them out directing four actors in two different scenes.
WEBINAR 5: explains these powerful techniques.
WEBINAR 6: actors and directors apply them and test them out.
In future webinars you could be one of the actors to explore the processes.
Ground Zero for actors and directors is the actual time on set when they are working together. The focus of these sessions is to learn how actors and directors can best collaborate to produce the dream production they are both working towards.
New creative partnerships might blossom from this collaboration.
The cost of these one and a half hour webinars is usually $10 per participant - but these next two sessions are FREE.
Richard Sarell is a Master of his craft! In just 90 minutes he delivered a comprehensive webinar, provided many useful tools and devices to explore, as well as a thought provoking discussion. Really looking forward to the next webinar on the Actor Director relationship.

- In the body of the email provide a short description of yourself by way of an introduction.
- Include a one sentence description of the film you wish to use and the age range of the characters you require.
LEARN TO GENERATE PERFORMANCES THAT ARE CREATIVELY PLAYFUL and CONVINCINGLY REAL
THIS IS FOR YOU IF...
- Clear and logical explanations work for you
- An acting adventure is always fun
- You love being involved with the development of new ideas
- Understanding more about the actors and directors skill is your passion
- Feel you often fall into the same traps
- Often aren't clear about your choices so you just wing it.
IF YOU DON’T HAVE THESE SKILLS …
- rather than being relaxed at tackling new ideas you will be stressed
- you could restrict your openness to new processes
- applying yourself to unusual tasks will be challenging
- making the obvious choice will become a more regular trap
- you won't be confident about floating an unusual idea
- the same mistakes will continue to occur
Over his twenty-five year directing career Richard found that that there were many unusual behaviours that he would have to encourage actors to adopt for their character. One thing became quickly plain. No matter how odd the behaviour was there was always a conscious or unconscious reason driving it. Everything happened for a reason.
Working out how and why unusual behaviours occurred was fascinating. Then learning to translate that knowledge into acting technique was another fascinating challenge. He became very skilled at it.
Actors have to do the same thing. On some occasions they too are confronted by the unusual and have to start from scratch to work out a practical way to apply a new understanding to a performance.
This webinar will also therefore explore learning how to learn.
