Lesson Details

Film Acting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Teaches the Stanislavski method, which is based on the concept of emotional memory for which an actor focuses internally to portray a character's emotions onstage. Influential acting teachers, including Richard Boleslavsky, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Michael Chekhov, Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Harold Clurman, Robert Lewis, Sanford Meisner, Uta Hagen, Ion Cojar, Andrey Vasilyev, Ivana Chubbuck and Christine Anketell all traced their pedigrees to Stanislavski, his theories and/or his disciples. Stanislavski's system is not method acting, it is a classical acting philosophy.

Teaching since:
September 2006

I am a professionally trained, experienced performer from New York. After completing a National Tour with Sesame Street Live, I decided to make the move to Southern California to pursue other aspects of my career. Having been in this business for several years, as a performer as well as part of production teams, I have learned a lot about what is expected from performers, how to hold a career in this business, and other tricks of the trade.
I promise to make sure you learn everything you will need to be successful, whether it be for a career choice or just a hobby, and will use the teaching technique that works for you.
I can't wait to meet you!
