Online Intro Method

TAKE THE FIRST WEEK FOR FREE TO SEE IF YOU WANT TO TAKE THE WHOLE MONTH

It’s hard to access how much the online classes can enable your work with you taking them. So the offer is to give you a risk-free period of the first two classes to see how much it can not only maintain your acting craft but truly keep it growing.

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.

For these reasons Method Acting will maintain an online selection of classes until such time that we can properly come back into a collective space and not have to worry or adhere to the concerns that the class space may become a potentially hazardous space.

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 technique and process of method involves some very intense and intimate interactions. Physically and vocally you would be working at a more engaged and dynamic rate. With regards to the techniques of relaxation sense/memory, it involves considerable use of the voice. Both within scene work and improvisation within technique an important component is the impulsive use of the body. For these reasons we find at present the online work enables the freedom of expression that engages the creative freedom to learn and grow as an actor.

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.
