8The Golden Box is a two-day in depth lecture that breaks down the technical map used at The Los Angeles Acting School at Edgemar. Learn how to create vivid, fleshed out, and interesting characters through an intense and emotional workshop with lectures and technique exercises.
Michelle teaches a technique that is effective for actors of various skill levels. The Golden Box will teach you how to get out of your head, follow your impulses, and begin to live completely in the moment. By finding your own unique emotional triggers, you will learn to access your full range of feelings and emotions at a moment’s notice. Actors around the world have found success studying with Michelle because she takes the emphasis off the dogmatic method and helps actors discover their own creativity.
The class focuses on answering the following questions:
- Why are some choices more powerful than others?
- How does one deliver a raw unforgettable performance?
- What specific tools can be applied to film, television, and stage work?
- How does one develop a personal story from scratch and discover material for a one woman/man show, screenplay, short or novel?
The acting class will be supported by film clips. There are discussions and analyses of performances by Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, James Dean and many others.
Exercises include learning how to build provocative and complex backstories by opening up your instrument emotionally and finding triggers and psychological gestures in your work. This class has served as more than an acting seminar as past participants have discovered profound truths about themselves as artists.
Next session will be: Saturday June 27th 10am-4:30pm and Sunday June 28th 12:30pm to 6pm. To book call 310-392-0815 or click here.
