Awakening the Actor Within
“Stephen Foster will give you clarity and dexterity to master the external factors and the internal feelings. When you step on the stage (or in front of the camera) you´ll bring your whole self with you.” Viki King – best-selling author of How To Write a Movie in 21 Days – The Inner Movie Method
In 1994, I read a book called “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron, and within a year, I was an unblocked actor! How exciting, how rewarding, BUT also how frustrating. As I trudged my way through my acting career, I discovered tools and strategies to overcome “acting” block. Since acting can be a daunting and frustrating craft/business, I decided to publish my notes and tools that had best served me and my fellow actors. The result was the workbook and workshop “Awakening the Actor Within.” It was my goal to keep myself functioning and to help other actors achieve their dreams without having to pay outrageous prices to do so.
In this workbook, we delve into the creative heart of what YOU truly desire as an actor. (WHAT DO YOU WANT?!)
We will discover YOUR “true identity” as an actor then explore how to use your life to create unique, inspired performances.
over 100 tools, strategies and games to getting unblocked & refocused
build your inner/outer support team (what I call a “Master Mind”)
