the hacks

You're busy, it’s all about the speedy hustle, I get it. Time is the issue, talent isn't.


This is an intensive version of The Groundwork course, also delivered online. We’ll start at the basics and work through, at pace, to hone your your craft and ready you for professional scrutiny.


Just like The Groundwork, every session will begin with a warm-up routine, using specifically selected exercises to improve enunciation, focus & technique. After that, we’ll move onto the heavy lifting by awakening your analytical thought processes, broadening your awareness and strengthening your responses. Each session then concludes with script work to put your new talents to the test using a monologue or a scene. Homework tasks consolidate these skills before we meet next. On session four, you’ll use the script we’ve worked on for a mock audition – I’ll authentically put you through your paces as if you were facing the real thing.


By the end of The Hacks, your understanding will have blossomed and you’ll be ready to attack scripts and build characters in a way that aids your success rather than feeds your panic.
