You Must Lust For The Work
Success responds to passion.
There’s so much riding on this for you. You want success so badly. You want to get it right. But there’s no math in this business. Decision makers are moved by wild, bold, specific talent. And in order to sharpen your talent to the point of a champion you’re going to have to fuel your pursuit with passion. Acting The Truth lights your artistic soul on fire and gives you the tools to succeed.
Meisner-based exercises train heightened awareness, deep presence and emotional specificity so you dance on the edge of every moment.
Scene work and creative adjustments train artistic flexibility, the ability to take notes, making swift, bold choices and coming to the kind of self-awareness that allows you to take command of your work.
“This class can’t be about me. I’m only as good as my ability to help you find the power to be great without me. My goal is to create and defend spaces in which you’re expected to push your own boundaries. And I do my best to do that with kindness and firmness. Sure, sometimes actors need a kick in the ass. But it can’t be about my ego. It has to be about your growth.” -Steve Braun

What Actors are Saying
I was used to acting teachers who gave personally destructive notes in the name of "making me better." What is incredible is the way Steve guides you to discover who the character is as a reflection of you. Now, every scene is so much closer to my heart and means so much more.
Class with Steve Braun is like finding out how to truly just BE. And it’s from that spot that you feel comfortable enough to take risks and speak lines from the heart; it’s how beautiful acting comes out naturally! This technique has helped me in life as well as in my ability to be a more truthful actor. Thank you Steve!
