In Webinar 1 we got facts about how actors make choices when recording a self test audition.  The trap that almost 70% of actors fall into was revealed.

In Webinar 2 YOU WILL BE GIVEN SCENES SO YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE EXERCISES.  We will explore techniques to avoid falling into that common trap.  Six actors will test out the concepts so that you can improve your choices in your next self test.  

Webinar 1 was eye-popping. Clear analysis pointed to specific problems and creatively inventive remedies emerged.

Now we are going to work on developing those remedies, prove that they work and search for other options.

I loved the simple approach to creating a point of view for a role. I haven't seen this method before (not that I've been acting long) and it makes perfect sense to me. I found Richard to be approachable and gentle in his feedback, with practical suggestions that made a big difference to each person's work.

Janine, I am delighted you enjoyed the webinar and that it made sense to you.  That is my absolute aim -  that it makes sense and is easy to do.  Something that is easy to do is something that you can do well.

The changes every actor made during the session were impressive, weren't they. That's because they, like you, understood what they were doing.

I was very excited about our achievements. I think it is a real breakthrough in applying acting process.

There is a new term of classes classes starting in October and the Introductory Workshop is on Thursday night from October 8.

Thanks Richard for always having an educational and Inspiring workshop. So good to work on the craft, and your honesty and experience is much appreciated. Had fun.

Glad you enjoyed it, Silvana.  You did an excellent job with two impressively different interpretations of the scene.  With six out of six actors all managing to implement this new technique with complete success we had a very successful session.  What we were all part of on Saturday was a major breakthrough in the practice and understanding of acting process.  I'm excited.  Thanks for your help.

Richard has SUCH an interesting approach to acting. He integrates 'what the director wants' (he has over 1000 hours of TV under his belt) with 'how to get there' from an actor's perspective. In other words, he helps actors think about 'process' in the light of 'outcome' - what reads on the screen. He's pretty much a humble genius at this, and a really good human as well. Very very good value.

The Rehearsal Room


Janet, Thank you for your participation in what turned out to be a pretty remarkable breakthrough session.  

Your ability to analyze the ingredients of acting process has always impressed me. So, it means a lot to hear from you that I am hitting the target that I am aiming at.

It was an exciting session.
