The booking process is quite straightforward. All you need to do, after having read through the details of the class you are interested in, is to get in touch and we will conduct a telephone conversation in more detail. Method acting does not audition, as the assessment criteria are how willing you are to engage in the process, rather than how talented we think you are. After 20 years of teaching I have never found talent has amounted to much, but focused work certainly has. Therefore it is important that I can be clear you understand the structure of the classes and willing to commit.
Method acting offers a structured unit form of acting training. Both Studio & Online units through the year offer the heart and process of the method with additional; craft classes offering a selection of units involving voice, movement, audition technique and textual analysis. You can either specifically focus upon a unit if you wish to address areas of your acting crafting a unit at a time or alternatively you could consider a more engaged commitment over the year allowing the time to absorb and grow technically, creatively, professionally.
YEAR LONG FOCUS
A year-long focus can be started at any point during the year. As method acting is a block system that repeats through the year there is no calendar start point. The classes are taught on a completely practical basis and though the primary step is to teach the content and structure of the various techniques. The real value of the classes is the engagement & repetition with the process whereby you build up the real muscles and creative abilities that any professional actor requires.
Payment for a single class can be made in either one full payment or the minimum deposit payment to secure your space. Any person wishing to sign up but has a cash flow issue, you can space your payment for the acting units over a 2 month period or weekly. Just ask and be able to set out the structure of your payments. Once you have complete an online unit you become a regular member and then all online classes have a flexible payment system as set out below. All Studio London Units are set at £180
ONLINE METHOD UNITS FLEXIBLE FEE
Once you complete a Method Induction Unit with an Online or Studio unit, you become regular members, which means all future Online Method Fees are calculated under a flexible payment structure.
The current Online Method unit fee is £240. However, you might not be able to attend all the units available. Normally you pay for the unit in total regardless. Nevertheless, in the current situation, it is more logical to allow you to consider how many classes you will be attending when you work out a fee you are willing and able to pay.
The other factor to take into account is what your current income is? Therefore you may wish to consider what percentage of income you are currently receiving, either through work or through any form of government scheme or state benefit. You could then use that percentage as a means to consider your fee. For instance, 50% of £240, is £120, as an example, or 25% would be £60.
Therefore these are the things to factor in when calculating your fee are…
How much you think you’re going to attend?
What percentage of your fee would you pay in the given circumstances?
Once you conclude your fee, you adjust it when booking your place on the class booking system.
You do not need to justify or explain. Method Acting is happy to continue with the good faith through 2021, that we work with collectively in the current situation. However, we need to make sure we can find the income to support the training we provide.
