The Industry will be forever different going forward.

The Industry is in the process of coming back and it’s a new world.  You have a unique opportunity right now to be inside (and ahead of) the change that is happening- as everyone in the Industry finds a new way of working.

This 8-week class with the amazing Sydney Walsh, along with Risa Bramon Garcia and Master Teacher, Corey Parker, is your guide to exercising artistic leadership in your craft and career (in the virtual spaces, in your self-tapes, and eventually in person) so that you’re ready to bring the full force of your talent to your work in this new paradigm.

The New Work is an essential 8-week online intensive that will sharpen your practice in doing the kind of authentic, bold, present, and specific work that it’s going to take to move Industry creatives NOW and going forward.  Most everything right now is happening on camera and in a virtual setting, so you have to get right with that, and take ownership of your talent… and your career.

We are seeing the most beautiful work being done by actors in this new virtual arena, work that is personal, courageous, and deep. Your work now is to unearth your distinctive voice as an actor (and more), to practice presence on screen, to allow YOU to be fully seen, and to deeply affect your audience, no matter the genre or the platform.  And to make that happen, you MUST show up with artistic leadership!  That is our practice in the The New Work.


What works in here works everywhere.

The New Work introduces you to a whole new way of experiencing your acting practice AND your approach to your career.

This class is not an audition ABC, nor does it give you any tips and tricks.  Rather these 8 weeks blur the lines between your unique artistry and the often paralyzing confines of the audition process, the new virtual platforms, and the “perceived” Industry (then, now, and later).  In these 8 weeks you begin to let go of old ways and to stretch beyond your comfort zone.  In challenging yourself and each other to show up fully each week, you start to to embrace the wonderful, messy humanity of every relationship in any scene.  You get to claim your voice, your courage, and your leadership- with ease, authenticity, and power!  You connect the joy in your practice with technology (and beyond) and lead with artistic power!

You become accountable to yourself, your practice, and your career, and start to take responsibility for all of the work you do and how you put that work out into the world!

Your Teachers

The Work

Each week you engage in a new way in which to explore your voice, to get personal, specific, and bold, and to challenge your resistance.  And resistance will show up.  Facing your fears and your resistance (now more than ever) is a big part of pushing through to absolute, unapologetic freedom in your work.  Once you tackle it in this new realm, it will be a new way of working forever.

These 8 weeks include assigned scenes, material you bring in, audition/on-camera work (for 4 of the classes)- including a unit on self-tapes, along with scene work and some writing- to bring you closer to a more connected, powerful relationship with your work.  Included is a career coaching class as part of the journey. F rom your work on camera on Zoom, your clips are sent to you to continue your exploration.

It’s time to come back to the work you love, no matter where it happens. It’s time to always work at a championship level!

This class is not an audition or employment opportunity and there is no suggestion or guarantee of an audition or employment as a result of taking this class.
