“Anyone can learn how to act with these DVD’s. The ‘Delivering Killer Monologues’ DVD was especially useful in landing my first part on TV. Thanks John for all your help and inspiration.He was truly one of the great instructors in acting.”
The four DVDs in the John Sarno acting lesson series are: Disc #1 How to Ace Screen Tests, Disc #2 Delivering Killer Monologues, Disc #3, The Hidden Art of Cold Reading, and Disc #4 The Exercises that Get You There.
All the discs have easy to follow instructions and demonstrations by fellow actors. Warning: Do NOT pay for any workshops, acting classes or university coursework unless it meets the following 4 criteria
There is a lot of confusion surrounding our field. I want to give you 4 criteria or elements you absolutely, positively must have in any solution you obtain:
1: I don’t teach cold reading, I teach HOT reading. Cold reading means you get up and act the words while a moderator says “very good” and people who do that then go out on auditions and the casting directors and agents and managers are very upset and the actor does not get a second chance for at least two years…Film and TV acting is so exact because the camera is so close you have to learn in a way that makes you connect up inwardly and that’s a process of learning the inner and outer technique of working with a script.
2: If you are not learning concentration tools in your workshops and classes you are simply stuck in performance fantasy. Proper script investigation means investigate that script and steer clear of “cold reading” classes or tools that do not increase your concentration and imagination.
3: Learning to act without the use of actions and subtext is the kiss of death. You must learn how to use specific subtext tools or the camera will not pick up your thoughts and underlying emotion.
4: A proper method acting tool box will give you so much craft support, if you haven’t picked up the ability to self-direct your performance choices you will end up at the mercy of a technical director who knows very little about motivating or directing the inner life of an actor’s performance. That inner life is Sarno’s specialty
It doesn’t matter if you are looking to do stage work, cinema, broadcast, or voiceovers. On these DVDs John Sarno will teach you exactly what you need to know to be successful in Hollywood – for much less than the cost of Hollywood acting classes or workshops.
There are good reasons why universities and colleges all over the country use the John Sarno DVDs in acting classes – including the most important one: The Fact that the skills taught in these DVDs are used by some of today’s most successful actors & actresses.
