Actors tell stories by going through a truthful human experience that audiences find meaningful.  In fact, it is the “truthfulness” that makes an audience decide if the story and the acting are good.  And, believe me, audiences have so many choices these days…they’ve become quite adept at searching for the truth in an actor’s performance.  

In this class, we’ll break down the 4 phases of truthful storytelling that will improve your work immediately.  By breaking a scene down into these 4 repeating beats, you’ll see how an audience perceives the humanness of your characters.
