Event description
Join this Screen Acting Meisner Long Weekend on zoom with Becky Sharpe, a film director who will help your on-camera connection.

About this event

Becky Sharpe is a film director offering an online Screen Acting Meisner Long Weekend. The workshop is for all levels, and takes place over multiple sessions on Friday evening, Saturday, Sunday (and optionally Monday), to work with a small group of actors and aspiring actors to develop their on-camera presence and emotional connection.

The classes are on Friday evening 21st January, Saturday daytime 22nd and Sunday daytime 23rd January 2022 , with an optional one to one session on the Monday with Becky. See below for the detailed schedule.

The zoom online workshops are designed by Becky to prepare you for an amazing future. You will work on getting in touch with your emotions, connecting emotionally with the text AND with your scene partner. We will be building on your own natural self-awareness and developing your self-care as well as your acting abilities. These elements are important after this time of crisis, to get you ready to succeed and live your dreams in a world that is full of doom and gloom. The sessions are fun, informal and practical.

Over the long weekend you will be introduced to the Meisner Technique for Screen Acting. This is for both beginners and experienced Meisner practitioners, and we will look at how to apply the Meisner Technique to the rapid workflow required for screen acting. Becky will supply the class with a script to work on as part of this course. It is copyright-free and you can use it as part of your online showreel and on your social media if you wish to.

You will improve your ability in accepting direction and you will work on developing that magical sense of "connection" - that aliveness and spontaneity that casting directors are looking for, the elusive and desirable feature of having "on-screen chemistry".

Whatever your experience level, this workshop will build on your existing skills and get you confident on-camera, ready for future success.

The Long Weekend Course is an opportunity to:

• Build your confidence

• Learn how to really connect on-screen

• Develop self-awareness in your acting

• Understand "chemistry" and how to have it

• Work with a director who will energise you

• Develop your technical abilities for camera

• Use this time of crisis for healing and self-improvement

Some Recent Reviews from Becky's Acting Students:

"Becky Sharpe - you're an absolute JOY to work with. I feel like in such a short time of knowing you you've been stamping out my life-long bad behaviours (like putting myself down or being negative) and building my acting confidence and technique with each session. You're the "stage mom" I never had. So basically... thank you!!"

Yulia Kovnat – Actress

“I have completed Becky's excellent Online Screen Audition Success class and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Most of my acting experience has been in fringe theatre and I had very little screen acting knowledge or experience so I was feeling a little bit nervous before the class. I needn't have worried because Becky puts you at ease straight away and even though the class was online she created a strong rapport and a really supportive community with the actors present so that I felt comfortable straight away.

Through Becky's expert guidance, teaching and her knowledge of the film industry I gained the confidence to perform online and I really enjoyed exploring the texts which she selected. I feel like I have learned so much in such a short space of time. What I think is particularly special about Becky's classes is that they are so holistic and about so much more than the acting. Because of the last class I did with her I now have a clearer plan of how I want to achieve my acting goals and what steps I need to take. I didn't have the confidence to do this before.

Doing this class in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis has been a truly life-enhancing experience because of Becky's compassionate and empathetic way of teaching, which acknowledged both the personal and professional challenges in this difficult time. I really valued the way in which Becky engaged with us on a personal level and gave us practical tools to cope with both acting and with life in this new world. A wonderful experience where I felt I grew as both and actor and as a person and I cannot wait to do more of Becky's classes.”

“I loved attending Becky Sharpe’s Screen Acting Workshop over the weekend!! I had no idea what to expect but I loved every minute. Becky is awesome; she is just what I need in a teacher and have been searching for for a long long time! She’s a great mentor/director and teacher - I learnt so much on every level and I love how she makes you feel empowered to be yourself on camera. Her technique is so refreshing and inspiring I can’t wait to train more with Becky!

I have been training over the past 8 years and trained mainly in Meisner but Becky uses a variety of techniques to get the best out of you as an actor. And what I love most is that she inspires you and helps you work out your individual technique which I think is the most important thing for an actor. It’s very empowering and I love also how she is brutally honest and prepares you for being on set and for auditions and gets you making your own decisions for yourself from the word go. It’s really enlightening and I couldn’t recommend Becky enough. Thank you so so much – I’m so happy I met you and I can’t wait to learn more"
