It’s shocking that most indie Producers and Screenwriters don’t really understand the method by which most actors bring great characters to life. Without this information it’s almost impossible to ensure that scenes in a script can be played, or that characters have an arc. It’s also almost impossible to give an actor struggling to present a character as you want to see them, the information they need to become who you want them to be.

About this Resource
Constantin Stanislavsky (1863-1938), a famed Russian actor, director, and teacher, profoundly influenced the theater of the 20th century and beyond. He developed a variety of techniques that became known as "The Stanislavsky System" or "the Method" which allowed actors to portray characters in a very lifelike and believable way.
Stanislavsky’s work was later adapted by leading acting coaches including Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg, and Uta Hagen to create derivations of the methods actors still learn today. Most of the world’s leading actors, and their greatest performances, have relied upon elements of The Method because it’s a practical, reliable, swift way to turn characters on a page into people as “real” as those who live in the real world
Tip: Writers who come to understand the method will find that the characters in their novels take on new life and new dimensions and their scenes become significantly better and easier to write.
Topics addressed in this workbook include:
- How the Method was created and some of its’ key elements and exercises.
- How the Method opens up the unconscious mind to help actors organically, naturally, intuitively and swiftly create rich characters astonishing performances.
- Why the Method has been called dangerous and psychologically destabilizing.
- What actors need to find in scripts and scenes to make the characters riveting in performance.
- Some ways to help actors understand how you see a character or a scene so they can intuitively play it correctly.
- Why the Method has been blamed for making actors unstable, emotionally fragile, and even suicidal.
- This event will not be recorded but attendees will receive a printable workbook that covers the material presented and provides links to supporting videos and articles attendees will find useful.
