WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
It’s about being real, true, raw
Be the Actor Within provides a space that embraces real life and transcends creatively and liberally. It’s about being real, true, raw. Scary, exposing, nerve wrecking YES...else what's the point. Learning the craft and art of letting go and being, is beautiful empowering and nurtured in our sessions with James.
These are not just acting skills, they are life skills
During the acting workshop we learn to look within and sense how to use our experiences and emotions to play a theatrical role that is genuine and memorable. James helps people relate to others, to better understand friends, colleagues, even strangers. Of course these are not just acting skills, they are life skills. He guides people with humour, empathy and direction, always building people up, never tearing them down.
A brilliant, challenging and very rewarding experience
An intense acting class in a supportive environment that helps you to express truthfully the emotion and intent behind the words of any script or text you wish to focus on. A brilliant, challenging and very rewarding experience and highly recommended for those who wish to push their careers to the next level.
It's an unusual, challenging and invigorating experience
It's an unusual, challenging and invigorating experience and can be transformative. The people in the acting class are of mixed experience and are quite diverse and the vibe is very supportive, warm and encouraging. I'd really recommend James as teacher and this course as a place to explore yourself.
This process changed my perspective
I’m like a fish out of water in front of the camera however this process changed my perspective to the point that by the final performance, I wasn't even really cognisant of other people watching me 'perform'. No mean feat. I would highly recommend.
An Incredible Experience
Be the Actor Within is an incredible experience for everyone that attends. It’s an emotional rollercoaster that focuses our energy on some intense final performances. So glad this opportunity is available.
A safe and understanding place
James ensures all of his students receive honest constructive feedback combined with dramatic exercises which further and deepen an understanding of the dramatic process in a safe and understanding place. I personally have gained an understanding of both myself and of a performance technique which I can apply to a range of situations. James gets real results very quickly with this approach, and the acting classes are interesting, moving, funny and often challenging!
