Course Overview

The HubStudio is very proud to welcome one of the most gifted, intuitive and experienced acting coaches in Australia. During this eight week course, Andrew’s “text based” workshop will provide acting processes and insight to help you achieve a deeper, less obligated and more profound connection to your work. Your instinct and creative autonomy will be honored, while you are challenged to rethink your creativity, your current acting processes and how you engage in the work.

Andrew will create a culture of curiosity, rigor, insight and the opportunity for epiphany.

Andrew has a rare gift for generating inspiration without hype. His belief in people’s potential is 100% genuine, and his ability to guide and empower them to unlock that potential is second to none. He is a refreshing burst of authority, honesty and integrity.

Dr. Steven Vidler- Screen Writer, Film Director, Lecturer: AFTRS

Course Outline

This is a scene work and monologue-based course in which Andrew’s acting processes will be introduced to serve the group’s needs.

The better you are, the more you know, the simpler you need to become.

Content includes: What’s (what am I saying), images (seeing what I’m saying), physicalizing (dealing with what I’m seeing and saying), bravery (extending on what I’m dealing with), (why and history) motivating what I’m saying and doing: pockets of history leading to history, obj./need/obstacle/subtext, etc. dealing with fear/anxiety, blocks, purpose and self- belief, sharpening instinct, appropriate bravery, release from obligation, acting with purpose, healthy self-reflection processes and etc.

Andrew’s teaching is clear, demystifying and invites you to remember what you already know.

COMMITMENT: Andrew’s teaching relies on continuity and building from week to week. For the sake of yourself and other group members, please ensure you can commit and, at this point in your career, are willing to be bold, teachable and do the preparation needed.

MATERIAL: You will bring a monologue and Andrew will provide two scenes: 2-5 minutes in length. You are welcome to make suggestions: based on what you want to do. Andrew will manage whether the other role is good for your partner.
