Actorswork with Steven Anderson: Steven Anderson

This Acting for TV & Film workshop is a process-focused intensive designed to give actors a thorough experience of how to integrate actor and character into one being so that there is no separation that an audience would perceive as “pretending.”  Because the camera can pick up even the slightest hint of separation in an actor’s performance, it is even more vital when involved in that medium to be an integrated performer.  The difference is performance that is living and authentic rather than presentational.  A key element of this workshop will be learning to transform the energy and conversations we use to hold us back into creation expression, creating truly authentic characters along the way. Steven facilitates the participants ability to achieve this during his on-your-feet, experiential workshop through a series of games, exercises, and Actorswork signature tools like “time bombs” and “let it be trues,” all revolving around the exploration of the original scenes that are written specifically for the participants.  At the end of the workshop this culminates in performances of each scene.

“Steven Anderson is an extraordinary teacher. He brings great energy, wisdom and imagination to every hour of every class. His workshops are as fun as they are exacting, and no one offers better individual coaching. I especially appreciate Steven’s endless repertoire of creative, on-your-feet exercises–each of which adds immeasurably to the richness of his workshops, and to one’s own learning.”Norm Stamper, Actor

“Working with Steven Anderson has unlocked my potential. For the first time, I have a road map of where I can go with my acting, and how I’ll get there. From being trapped in techniques and tricks, I now feel liberated into a living, breathing craft. For the first time in my career, I understand what it is to be an actor and how that resonates in my body – living truthfully, spontaneously releasing within a form, honoring the text by breathing life into it with my present-mindedness, and by playing full out.”Wonder Russell, Actor
