“If you want to create authentically and become a professional experiencer and craftsperson, Celia Anne Browne will take you there.”
Eric Morris

“Celia is an amazing teacher of Eric’s work. A real artist and avatar.”

This is an Intermediate Advanced level for the Professional Working Actor, or the dedicated aspiring student, open to continuing students of Celia and for new ones inspired to explore new terrain and interested in becoming masters in the craft of Acting! As this is a Theatre and Film Acting class, we will be working on camera each week with Film and Television scripts, as well we will be able to choose material from great Theatre!

This intensive weekly class is taught by Celia Anne Browne who hails from Los Angeles and who has been endorsed to teach the Eric Morris technique internationally by ERIC MORRIS himself and with joy, has been Internationally.

We will explore Instrumental and Craft techniques of the Eric Morris System of Acting. Eric Morris, an International teacher based in Hollywood, California, is the author of ten books including the classic No Acting Please. The system is rooted in Stanislavsky and Strasberg as Eric was an Actors Studio member and served some time as head of the Directors Unit in Hollywood. From there Eric created his revolutionary system as used by Jack Nicholson and Johnny Depp, to name a few.

Truth is the quest. The actor is increasingly more open to experiencing authentically, free to express emotionally, creating profound ensemble with other players, and ultimately to embody a character amidst complex given circumstances, to tell a powerful and riveting story.

For complementary knowledge and engagement, we will also learn a few valued techniques of the esteemed teacher SANFORD MEISNER to further enhance our ability to ‘live truthfully under imaginary circumstances,’ express our impulses, free up with improvisation ability and listen with full presence to the other actor, which can not be emphasized enough!

We will practice all techniques as a group, in partner and there will be individualized attention, to expand the talent of each unique actor and actress.

As the training program progresses, we will conquer Audition skills, replacing any fear with the excitement we feel to be seen and the view of the Audition as an opportunity to do what we love. Confidence will be boosted! Working with cold reading and prepared material, mock Audition experiences will be set up within the supportive environment of the class.

Requires Courage!
The work is Freeing, Irreverent and Exciting!
Life and Performance Changing!
