BUILDING THE PHYSICAL LIFE
OF THE CHARACTER
This 6 day workshop is the pinnacle of 37 years of personal and professional examination of the Meisner Technique Tim was trained in, through the filter of experience and what satisfies the character most, and because actors must always be evolving with the industry, now you can apply this Meisner process to Film & TV.
No more theory. Characters are not theoretical. They are human beings.
Learn to liberate yourself by unfolding the truth of the character physically not mentally, and do in it a way that bypasses effort and anxiety.
DAYS 1 and 2
Receive your materials, chosen scene, and partner. Learn how to draw clues to character from the text and immediately incorporate the two tools most useful for your auditions.
DAYS 3 and 4
Eliminate the brain/body split most actors have been trained into by unfolding through a process that can only be experienced, not explained.
DAYS 5 and 6
After finding yourself in the character's physical body, branch out to explore the world surrounding your character through working the scene and learning the difference between physical life for stage and film.
