Member feedback from March workshop:
Facilitator’s passion for the acting craft and affinity for the reality of what actors must bring into the room and into the industry as ‘professional practitioners’ of what a film or a stage production cannot succeed without. She reinstilled in all participants the requirement for unconditional investment in the intention and truth of the text.
For ACTRA Members, affordable and very engaging and intensive workshops like this are one of the enormous benefits of being an ACTRA member. This quality of workshop and professional development training of this caliber being available to members which would otherwise be either unattainable or unaffordable by other means is invaluable in every sense of that word. Thank you for providing members such rich, immersive and incredibly useful and applicable workshops!
