Our upcoming LA weekend workshop is limited to 12 participants (ages 13 and up.) We will be creating a strong monologue for each of you individually and then shoot a 60 second vid on 4K with quality sound shot by Real Deal Reelz for you to have 7-10 day after the workshop.

As soon as you register (early bird discount ends September 21st) book your 30 min FREE online session with me to begin the work on your piece. I will coach and guide you through the very simple process of creating your own monologue.

1.  Write a letter to someone you have an unresolved issue with. Write the one you don’t want to write. The one that’s screaming at you and you’d just rather not. That’s the one. Trust your courage and take the free fall. Don’t pull any punches…let ’em have it. Think of it more as a rant than a letter. Vomit all you want to say right on to the paper. Like a pressure cooker that needs to release. Best to write it out by hand rather than typing. State the specific issue towards the top of your writing and say what it was you needed from them but didn’t get. About a page and half aught to suffice but if you’re on a roll by all means keep it going. But no matter what, don’t stop writing. Let the pen and your guts do it, not your brain. Let it flow. You’ll know in your bones when you’re done.

2.  Then put yourself in the person shoes you just wrote to and become them having just read what you wrote. Now let THEM respond. Same thing. Let them read you the riot act if that’s what’s goin on inside. Let them judge you, call you out on all your bullshit, flaws, defects of character, insecurities…you name it. Let them speak fully uncensored. What did they need from YOU that they didn’t get? Don’t get caught up in not being them or being unable to grab the essence of how they speak. Trust they’re already a part of who you are…if they weren’t they wouldn’t have popped up at the start.

The transformational part of this work is that we begin to recognize this individual as an aspect of who we are. They truly ARE within us. We end up moving an unresolved conflict toward empathy, understanding and maybe even compassion. We in turn become more balanced and expansive.

Every single Actor (and Writer…including myself) I have done this exercise with has been hit harder by the letter written back then the first one sent. The work then becomes the potential seed for a powerful self written monologue, scene, play or screenplay. Give it a shot and share your experience.

Promises to be a great 2 days where those returning will build on technique already in place and take the work to the next level. Those new to joining us will engage in the process and most likely discover a new and exciting way to stop acting and be real.
All will end up with a great piece of work showing what your empowered Actor is truly capable of.

I’m ready to give you all 120%…you guys ready to join me?

Jump in and go for it!!!
