This acting class is geared to honing your acting technique for theatre, film, and television. Having studied with famed acting coach, Larry Moss for ten years, as well as my own experience performing, writing and directing, I am familiar with and use various acting techniques. Whether it’s the Meisner technique or the methods and exercises of Stella Adler, Uta Hagen, etc., I believe actors should take what works for them and feel free to leave the rest. Some of the actors in my class find sense memory and/or emotional recall help them get to the truth of a scene. Others prefer to concentrate on the circumstance of the scene and let their imagination dictate how their character behaves. I incorporate whatever will best help each actor grow.
At every class, when they’re ready, the actors bring in whatever scene or monologue they’re working on, or the sides they’ve gotten for an upcoming theatre or on-camera audition. After we work on that, each actor is filmed on camera doing the short television or film copy I’ve sent out during the week. I then screen and analyze what worked and what didn’t. This is followed by a viewing of the scene from the original film or TV series to analyze what that actor’s choices were. I find this on-camera work is helpful, not only for those primarily interested in film or TV, but also for the actors concentrating on theatre work, helping both be more specific in their choices.
Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re an experienced professional looking to explore new material or freshen your approach, I’ll provide a creative and safe environment for you to do your work.
