With over 25 years of experience including the work at the renown Moscow Art Theater, lifetime membership at the legendary Actor’s Studio and 19 years of being a working Hollywood actor, I feel it is time to share my knowledge and experience. Over the years I have worked with and learned from such masters as Steven Spielberg, Martin Landau, Oliver Stone, Shirley Winters, Wolfgang Petersen, Mark Rydell, David Fincher and many others.
I deeply believe that the Konstantin Stanislavsky’s method is the unique foundation for all modern acting technics and styles, including teachings of Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler and Sanford Meisner. I also believe in the importance of finding what works for each individual actor.
“The Method only exists to provide access to truthful performances. It is not a moral obligation.” -K. Stanislavsky
My class is a 8 week course with the industry showcase at the end of the 8th week. You will perform your scene infront of invited industry professionals-talent, agents, managers and casting directors. You will also get the tape of your performance.
The core of my class is the scene study with the emphasis on the character relations and their needs. The main objective of this class is for the actors to discover their true potential, to find their uniqueness, their strength and then build on it, to give them power as an artist that no one can take away!
It could only be achieved by a constant work and by challenging yourself. My goal is to have everyone working in each class – this is the only way to learn the craft and become a true professional. Weather you have a scene with a partner or a monologue – put yourself on the spot – this is the only way to grow as an actor!
