1 week intensive workshops

JUNE MASTER CLASS

The Master Class week long intensive workshop was created to give Actors and Actresses a safe place to push themselves to their artistic limits. A creative zone, where other skilled and experience actors are supporting each other in realizing new depths in their work and their artistic visions. 

 

During this week, Actors will be at the studio daily from 10am - 5pm, allowing for a completely immersive experience. Students will receive new characters and scenes daily, to be workshopped in class. The pre-rehearsed scenes will be played both in a live “theatre” style fashion, as well as an on-camera “audition” style technique. Actors will be required to have access to a high quality recording device to tape themselves outside of class hours as a part of the course.

 

This is a Masterclass for skilled and experienced actors. Suzanne will really be asking you to raise the bar for this one! It is an intensive. Included in the course material will be new challenges to sink your teeth into, gender swap roles, daily themes (including some revisited from TOF) and a strong mentorship and industry component.

 

Are you an Actor who is hungry to truly elevate yourself to the highest levels of craft and career? Then this is exactly what you need. We are very excited to see the creative discoveries made during the week!

 

Special Guests

ac/ment

An invitation only group class
Like TOF you will be expected to be off book for every scene, making extraordinary choices and take chances in front of the camera. The unique curriculum challenges you to think differently about the work and inspires your creativity.

In AC/MENT teamwork is essential. With only 6 actors participating, support and enthusiasm of one another is crucial. One week you might be alone in your private sessions and one week Suzanne might throw in another participant as a surprise. You’ll need to make adjustments quickly, just like on set in real life.
 
This class runs in a 5 week cycle that includes a combination of weekly on camera studies plus one-on-one mentorship for two hours per week.
 
 

"Ac/Ment is an opportunity for you to challenge your own expectations of yourself, and to start really diving into what it means to be a professional, working actor."

- HELEN HAYDEN
(The Ex, Knowing, Designated Survivor)
 

"These cycles will really test you mentally, emotionally, and even physically at times. But's all worth it. I don't regret it one bit. I feel ready to take on anything! One of the best learning experiences I have had and it only took one month!

- ALEXANDER ELING
