Event Series Event Series: Method Acting Nov Studio Intensive

The Studio Technique and  Scene Study are where the foundation work of Homework expands into the space much as it would coming to the Film Set or Stage.

Homework is where you both build your understanding and practice Basic Relaxation and Senese Memory.

Where Scene Work engages the primary work of understanding the character and the situation of the drama. Who is this person, and what do they want or need? What is happing between the characters? How you work primarily from the text. Now in the Studio classes and scene studies, you can bring much more action and choices into play. Where the intuitive use of impulse can lead to greater understanding and relation with the character and story. Where you find the actor you want to be, the Actor you can be.

I want to discuss how you consider the steps of classes offered in each Monthly Method Acting Unit leading to the Method Studio.
Acting is about preparation. Firstly, the longer-term objective of developing your instrument and craft and how you construct an approach to any potential acting opportunity in the shorter term. If these can’t effectively be engaged, your work will be random.


Homework is the primary. It also represents the initial dead space in that the actor begins the journey. The dead space represents the initial sense of no natural external stimulation except the text itself. Alternatively, you could consider dead space and inert space. Requiring interaction from you to bring it to life. You have yet to create any relationship in such a primary space to feed off, just like when you receive a self-tape for an audition or prepare to work on a role you have booked. It is how you turn nothing into something. Although you only see obstacles at first, you find the means to unlock the opportunity.

About your instrument, the work is always primary. Each time you engage in relaxation and sense memory. Each time you work yourself experientially, you build and develop your instrument.

As important as the instrument is the relationship between text and character. Like the musician, you should pick up different music pieces to practice your craft and expand your vocabulary and understanding. Not to stick to the tunes that you know and like most. In the demands of the industry, this level of sketching sustains you when you have to make quick, creative choices.

Therefore homework is your studio. Without this foundation, you cannot truly grow in this industry—the technical demands in the 21st-century present considerable challenges. Consequently, the challenge and discipline of homework are to build the muscles to create with such obstacles rather than just overcome them.

Studio Method

The face-to-face work now has true meaning in the context of the homework. The primary homework preparation means that the studio space becomes a studio to explore and expand the primary work you have established in homework. It becomes a more organic opportunity to examine the potential of your instrument and your creative process where you can pull apart and engage both the character and the text—building a richer ability and a greater understanding of yourself and the opportunities of acting.

This also expands into the important parts of an actor’s craft, VOICE & MOVEMENT. To fill the character, the role, and the text with your creative thoughts, impulses and emotions, you need the creative muscles that bring real shape and dynamics to your acting.

The intensity of the STUDIO days replicates the challenges and opportunities of the camera or the stage. Now you can bring your primary and process work into scene work. Or to immerse and observe fellow class members reaching out to fulfil such a creative challenge. Everybody will work with sense memory and text in the morning, evolving the ability to work from your thoughts, impulses and emotions. To create from a heightened state of self while obtaining the lucidity of creative thinking.

The Choice

As Stanislavski said, talent is in the choice. Nothing is automatic, particularly in acting. The specific steps of the four-week unit are designed for you to engage and unlock your true creative potential properly. To develop the sensibility and creative muscles to take on the challenges and opportunities of the professional acting industry. 

In straightforward terms, the pillars in each unit are to see how you can raise your game.
