Sanford (Sandy) Meisner was one of the most respected acting teachers of all time. The Meisner Technique is widely recognized as one of the most effective acting techniques taught today. it gives actors the building blocks to become emotionally alive actors of depth, imagination and truth. The great strength of Meisner Training is that it is a clear, step-by-step approach to the craft of acting. It develops complete freedom of expression and confidence in your abilities.

Although the Meisner Technique was originally developed for stage actors, it has quickly become the technique of choice in Hollywood… because In film and television, an actor must be able to relate to the circumstances, personalize the character, memorize the lines…and GO! The Meisner Technique makes that second nature.

The Meisner Technique works for theater, film or television because it demands the actor to be completely truthful. The Meisner Technique allows you to connect in a far more truthful and meaningful way to yourself, your acting partners, your imagination, the text, and the circumstances demanded by the script.

Through this workshop, you will:

* Learn to focus your scene partner and the honesty of the moment

* Work on high-stakes television and film scripts to consistently deliver honest, natural fully present performances.

* Get immediate feedback and the opportunity to re-present after applying corrections for gratifying results

Our greatest film actors are able to portray characters so naturally, it seems as if we are in the film with them and they are not in front of a camera.

Over 3 Sundays in January and early February, we will explore "getting out of our heads" learning how to react instinctively to the surrounding environment.

There will be group and individual exercises, as well as individualized coaching. No acting experience? No problem! Just bring your passion and your inquisitive mind! The three week course culminates in a public presentation of the scenes worked on during the course of the workshop open to family, friends, and industry professionals.
