Online Intro Method

NEXT ONLINE UNIT STARTS 6TH OCTOBER

FREEDOM IN THE PROCESS

Over the last few months, we have found that is possible to engage a considerable amount of the work online without having to worry about such restrictions. So much so it has surprised us what we found is possible, which at first we simply did not think you could do online, has, in fact, turned out to be a very fruitful environment to train. Some components, particularly the use of the body in space are restricted within the framework of an online class. However the internal emotional and psychological creative work is not restricted and in some ways, the immediacy and intimacy of the camera heightens the creative challenges of working truthfully from yourself, as well mimics the acting environment of the film set.

What we have endeavoured and we primarily believe we have succeeded in delivering an effective creative environment where you can both learn and grow your craft and technique based around the focus of Lee Strasberg, while also engaging other important craft components focusing on voice and text.

Have a look at the classes and then get in touch if you are interested in the online classes we have available.

CREATIVELY ONLINE

“The online course was a thorough and insightful introduction to method acting. Sam overcame the hurdle of online classes as I felt very involved and connected in the work even over a computer screen. He guided me through the techniques and exercises which had a huge impact on the work I was producing. The structure of the course was broken down into scene work and technique work – helping us to tune into the character as well as ourselves. I am looking forward to studying here again in the near future. Highly recommend!”

“Studying introduction into Method Acting with Sam was incredibly powerful and insightful. Learning more about oneself in each session. Throughout the work, Sam instantly recognises ‘bad habits’ (If you have previous experience or otherwise) and eases you out of them with his skill and knowledge – bestowing that light bulb moment! Such early stages into this work but I have already gained assets and tools that I never, never, knew existed. It takes work and discipline, so if you are serious about the craft then this could very well be the method for you for an abundance of reasons. A combination of relaxation exercises combined with technique, merging into scene work was quintessential. I was concerned about learning online, but I must say the intimacy and intense approach was very useful, alongside gaining camera techniques. Sam is honest and interesting – acknowledging the human mind, enabling beneficial effects in understanding and growth as an actor. I couldn’t recommend this course enough.
Thanks, Sam!”

STRUCTURE

Week 1

Tuesday 10 – 12 am
Starts with an opening talk about the background and purpose of the exercises, tools and techniques developed by Lee Strasberg building from the works of Konstantin Stanislavski. Then the first exercise, known as basic relaxation will be demonstrated. Which you then will do under instruction and followed up after with a discussion and pointers for practice.

Thursday 10 – 12 am
The first 2 sense-memory exercises will be instructed and covered, at present, you will remain working in the chair by yourself on the course dynamics the exercise, focusing on how to bring truthful inspiring thought, impulse and emotion into play for the text & character.

Week 2

Tuesday 10-12 am
Building on the first two sense memory exercises we then progress and expand the work from the initial sense memory into improvisation. This way we build up the technical structure of preparation and working on stage in front of the camera. From now on each Tuesday session will focus on one specific sense memory tool giving you the dynamic means to truly empower and inspire your work as an actor
Thursday 10 – 12 am
Scene study. By now you will have had time to prepare a scene with a partner for the class. Here we can see how you currently work as an actor and how we can expand your approach and technique.

Week 3

Tuesday 10-12 am
3rd Technique Session

Thursday 10-12 am
Scene Study

Week 4

Tuesday 10-12 am
3rd Technique Session

Thursday 10-12 am
Scene Study

The 4 weeks will have trained you with a practical grounding of the technique.  Which you can then start to practice and apply into your work as an actor. It now also means you can then come into the regular method class as well as sign up for the other online units available. The main regular class also has a flexible attendance and payment structure.
