SCREEN ACTOR'S  MASTER CLASS
with Nic Bishop

AN ADVANCED SCENE STUDY CLASS

UNDERSTAND CHARACTER AND BUILD DEPTH FROM AN ANGLE LIKE NO OTHER

An atypical, advanced class that will challenge you to explore the impact of movement.


This master class teaches the necessary connection between physicality and emotional depth when creating a full character. With Nic's unique combination of Laban's Eight Efforts, Stanislavsky and Meisner techniques, actors will be challenged to explore the world of creating a character, inside and out.


Learn to follow your internal impulses and develop an expressive body that can make clean, precise choices. Find your truth in the characters you discover and how that translates through scene work, on camera. 

"We all want to be challenged as artists and to find the truth in every moment that we bring characters to life in front of the camera. Therefore we must work on material that will challenge us, to go further into the work than maybe we have done before,  and be given direction, encouragement and feedback that is honest. This masterclass will do just that. Through exercising your craft and taking risks. Elevate where you are now."

- Nic Bishop

“Existence is movement. Action is movement. Existence is defined by the rhythm of forces in natural balance.”
