Scene Study: Principles & Analysis

This program is a appropriate for those who are new to acting, or for those who are experienced but have not trained in Stanislavski’s core concepts for method style acting. You will be working with one scene for eight weeks, learning the steps from breaking down the script to bringing the scene to it’s feet. Each week, through discussion as well as examples in scripts and film clips a different concept is introduced to be applied to your assigned scene. Rather than focusing on achieving polished results, the energy of the class is directed at helping you grasp that process. Scenes are filmed.

Cost:
$549 + GST for 8 Weeks or two payments of $274.50 + GST

Scene Study: Character Development

This program is for those new to method style acting or for those wanting to deepen their understanding of Stanislavski’s system for creating a role. You will be assigned one monologue to work on for the full length of the program. Each class focuses on understanding the role the actor plays in bringing a character to life, how to break down the required elements of a role, implementing those choices, and how to highlight the theme of the story to create stronger, more vibrant drama through character. Like all of our classes rather than focusing on achieving polished results, the energy of the class is directed at helping you grasp the process. Final monologues are filmed.

Cost:
$549 + GST for 8 Weeks or two payments of $274.50 + GST

Scene Study:
Role Immersion

An intensive, eight-month program. Students are assigned one role for the entirety of the program. Through Stanislavski’s system actors work to bring alive the physical, emotional and instinctive impulses of the character. Training is focused on developing the means and skills for ‘realism’ and to distinguish the difference between a layered, organic performance from a rehearsed or overly emotional melodramatic performance.
Work is intermittently filmed with final work performed before a live audience.
Note: This program requires an 8 month commitment. Prerequisite: Principles & Analysis or Character Development or having previously studied under the guidance of a method style acting teacher.

Role Immersion: $369 + GST per 4 weeks

Testimonials

“It’s a pretty amazing breakthrough when your brains locks onto the meaning of the character and what their motives are and how to express that authentically. I’m starting to have some depth and understanding of what acting truly is about. Feels really good too. Makes one want to cry. Ciao for now mentor, friend and confidant. I’m so glad we met.”

 

“I wanted to extend my thanks for facilitating my learning/growing over the past few months. I’ve discovered so many things that have eluded me in my acting process for years. My audition yesterday was kind of like the culmination of what I’ve gone through in your class up to this point. It was nice to go into a very intimidating audition with solid tools and the confidence to know that I can “go there” if I bring in my commitment and focus.”

I just thought I’d check in to say that lately I’ve been really inspired to just sing and dance and express myself like I never have before! I thought that was neat, and definitely part of my growth from exploring more voice and movement at Actorium. It’s not just about the scenes and doing well in front of others, it’s about personal growth and change and freedom too… thanks.

“I just wanted to reach out to you to say that of all the things we practiced in the sessions I was in, being present in the room has been, by far, the one that has helped me the most. not only on set but in every audition. I’ve been working pretty much non-stop since the beginning of August. It’s also done wonders for my confidence because I don’t feel like I’m “winging” it or that I got a role on a fluke. For the first time since I started acting I feel like I see things more clearly and I’m having fun! Thank you so much for your passion and patience.”
