All the acting classes that make you blindly follow the leader through a myriad of nonsense acting exercises that cram you further down the rabbit hole of bullshit. BUYER BEWARE!

Constantly honing and refining your acting skills is the best way to get where you want to go. It'll also keep you centered and confident. Remember; we are students for life.

Jeff explains why substitution, like many old school methods, ends up disempowering the actor.

Jeff addresses the tricky business of delivering the written script as though it was what you were going to say anyway. It's a simple change in perspective and easier than you think.

Jeff continues to chip away at traditional training nonsense and presents a solid case for the freedom and power you achieve in using The Real Life Actor approach. Word, indeed.

The actor's quest to conjure the appropriate feelings when needed is far easier than you think. Ultimately, it's lightening fast and super easy. Just like in real life.

Jeff dispels the myth of that final moment when we, "get into character." It's just another bullshit belief that suckers actors into getting far too deep into their heads.

Once again, Jeff uses a recent training session with one of his students to offer a great example of the best way to approach and own your scene.

Here is a great example taken from a recent Skype lesson with a student. The things actors worry about and shouldn't and the things actors don't think about and should.

Those classes that challenge the actor's commitment by seeing who will make out the hardest and tell their deepest darkest secrets. It's a bullshit lure to keep you in the class. How is this getting you to improve as an actor?

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
