Saturdays 6-9pm, 8 weeks
Starts April 22nd – June 10th.
Welcome to Innovation in Acting Technique, co-taught by Quinn Mander and Ron Weisberg. This eight-week course merges the Meisner and Discovery Technique to give you, the actor, new ways to access your emotional truth through powerful storytelling, in every scene. You will learn to have honest discoveries, from one unanticipated moment to the next, even when you have lines memorized. You will discover a process by which you can create real and powerful moments that will be impossible to ignore.
Quinn Mander received his MFA studying the Meisner Technique under Bill Esper (who trained Jeff Goldblum, Aaron Eckhardt, Amy Schumer, and countless others). Quinn focuses on listening, responding, and behaving truthfully under the imaginary circumstances. Story Quest founder, Ron Weisberg, designed the Discovery Technique to help actors find the secret missing ingredient of communication that binds and solidifies their work. [This has helped land Ron rolls working alongside industry leaders like Lou Diamond Philips, Martin Freeman, and Tina Fey, and has helped his students book rolls on such shows as, Better Call Saul, Deputy, Roswell, and much more.
Ron and Quinn are uniquely focused on providing you with the confidence and skills you need to live fully in the roles you are given using only the tools at hand–the script, the moment, and the actor’s imagination. We look forward to breaking new ground with you! This is for Advanced actors ONLY.
