At the New Collective LA Acting Studio, you get so much more than just workout classes. Our acting classes also take you deeper into the craft of acting as a primary art form. Have you ever wanted to learn the process of creating a fully realized three dimensional character? Have you ever wondered how Marlon Brando transformed into Vito Corleone in “The Godfather”, or how Dustin Hoffmann became Ratso Rizzo in “Midnight Cowboy”?
The Actor’s Journey is a process class where you learn how to breathe life into a character and transform as an actor. Every actor knows that when they arrive on the set they must know their lines and their blocking. But what about knowing the process of bringing the character to life? What about what it means to create a living, breathing human being? Experiencing this process is what makes acting art, and what makes acting such a deep, joyful and rewarding craft.
In The Actor’s Journey, you’ll do exercises that reach all the way back to Stanislavski, but also include Uta Hagen, Lee Strasberg and Susan Batson. Use the process to get ready for that big job, create your own project or just to learn how to use these tools to create a character.
