Michelle's Golden Box Master Intensive and her Audition Technique Master Intensive are not to be missed!

Screenwise, the renowned acting school, presents The Golden Box Master Intensive in a two day in-depth technique analysis lecture which breaks down the technique used at the Larry Moss Studio now called The Acting Studio. Students learn how to create, fleshed out, vivid and interesting characters through an intense emotional workshop, with lectures and exercises.

This Master Intensive two day acting class focuses on answering the following questions:

  • What makes one choice more powerful than the next?
  • How can one deliver a raw unforgettable acting performance?
  • What tools in particular can be applied to film, TV and stage work?
  • How can one develop a personal backstory from scratch, and discover material for a screenplay, short, one woman/man show, or novel?

The class is supported by film clips. Discussions and analyses are included of performances by Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, James Dean, Marlon Brando, and many others. Class exercises include building provocative, complex backstories by opening up your instrument emotionally, and finding psychological gestures and triggers to use in your work. This class serves as more than just an acting seminar, as past students have uncovered profound insights about themselves as people and artists.

The Audition Technique Master Intensive is a boutique style workshop with only 16 participants. These students will learn to stamp their signature on a character making unique choices. This intensive aims to exercise an ease working in front of the 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.
