Michelle Danner to Host Acting Workshops at Sydney's Screenwise Acting School, March 23-26
LA director and acting coach to the stars Michelle Danner will be holding two Master Intensive acting workshops in Sydney, Australia, this March and places are filling fast.
Workshop One is 'The Golden Box' intensive, a two day in-depth technique analysis lecture which breaks down the technique used at The Acting Studio. Students will learn how to create, fleshed out, vivid and interesting characters through an intense emotional workshop which uses both lectures and exercises.
The class is supported by film clips with discussions and analyses of performances by world renowned movie actors. This class serves as more than just an acting seminar, as past students have uncovered profound insights about themselves as people and artists.

Workshop Two is 'Audition Technique' where students will learn to stamp their signature on a character with unique choices. This intensive aims to create an ease of working in front of camera and the confidence to perform and to shine in every audition. Students will participate on camera with sides from movies and TV shows from all genres of writing, ranging from drama, comedy including sitcom, romantic comedy, slapstick and black comedy.
