Two Day Workshop

December 7-8, 2019

Los Angeles area

The Actor's Director Workshop and the instructors have taught at such top film schools such as...

"So many times we hear in casting how the actors appreciate working with an 'Actor's director'. It's a win-win for actors and directors to collaborate... thank you Gary and Sheryl!"

 

-- Victoria Burrows, Casting Director

(Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, Flight, Cast Away)

There is that rare breed of Director that just “knows” how to get the best out of the actor -- giving them a sense of freedom, inspiring courage, and bringing clarity.   One of the challenges in collaborative storytelling is learning to speak the same language .  

The Actor's Director Workshop opens up deeper understanding of how artists connect with each other to find the moment-to-moment truth together.  Explore creative techniques such as staying present, the magic of silence, the art of listening, the power of vulnerability -- while learning to understand not only the intentions of a script, but...

 

the language of the heart.

Taught by two established artists with decades in the business, actor/director Sheryl Lee and actor/writer/director Gary Hershberger discovered that there was an opportunity for growth in the way actors and directors think about each other, how they explore the process, and in turn how they have conversations about the craft.
