About the ACTIONS Supercharger Workshop
Tense and in your head? Insecure about your choices? Not booking like you know you could?
There’s an exciting, yet surprisingly simple solution that really works.
Playing actions in your work is likely not new for you, but after many years of teaching, I started to realize something vital. While most actors get actions (verbs/intentions/tactics) on a basic, rather intellectual level, they don’t actually know how to select, embody and really land a powerful action on another character in a way that moves the story forward.
In this laser-focused 3-week workshop I’m going to teach you how. And the results are very exciting.
When done well, a good action sets you free. It releases you and transmutes your nerves. It demands that you listen and unleashes your spontaneity. And most importantly, it affects the other character and tells the story on the page. A good action helps you really live the scene instead of act it. And it can also pay the bills, my friend.
Walk away from this class feeling empowered, excited, and ready to deliver your very best work in auditions, on camera, and for live audiences.
What to Expect:
- While this is not quite a scene class, working-class participants will be given scenes and/or monologues to prepare in advance. Material will be mostly film and TV sides as well as some material from plays.
- Each week all participants and auditors will be given assignments/experiments to complete for the following week.
- Each class will consist of lecture, group exercises, and some short scene work through the lens of playing actions.
- Actors will come away with a solid roadmap for making strong action choices and embodying them with confidence in auditions, film, TV, and theatre.
