Steve Braun’s Acting The Truth is crossfit for actors. Meisner exercises, cold reading, improv, and on-camera work keep your instrument as sharp as it needs to be to stay bold and book work. Whether you’re currently working or between jobs, this ongoing training session is the way to stay in championship shape. ‘Cause even if you’re not training, the actors you’re up against still are.
“Steve is an amazing teacher and coach. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has helped me find my confidence, and I have grown immensely as an actor thanks to his teaching.” – Ahna O’Reilly, The Help
You’re competing at the Olympics of acting and you’re up against actors who are constantly working to sharpen their skills. You must be training consistently. BGB’s Acting The Truth with Steve Braun is that training.
Two important points:
1. You don’t learn to act by sitting in a class room listening to a teacher blather on about the craft. You learn acting by getting up on stage or in front of a camera and acting.
2. No actor working in film and television has the luxury of workshopping a scene with a scene partner for three months. When you book that guest spot on CSI or that series regular on the new ABC half hour, you have a matter of short hours to learn your lines, make strong choices, and know what you want from your scene partner. Sometimes less.
If you’re not actively working towards sharpening your unique instincts, creating a strong preparation in a short amount of time and undoing the damage of the daily plastic smiles and meaningless “I’m-fine-how-are-you’s” that keep actors from creating meaningful human connections, you’re sunk.
