Section 1: My First Section
Quick tutorial on getting in your character's head.
12 slides
A lesson on the origins of Method acting with some background, some key principles, a discussion of the stereotypes of Method acting, some famed Method users, and ways you can apply Method acting to your performance.

Mini-Lecture #2 The best advice I can ever give is to relax and let your emotions take over. Let yourself get completely caught up in the character. Its better to become them, and have to go through the process of detaching from them, than to overact or not understand your role fully. It takes time…

    This is short, sharp and to the point. Good course.

    • Zed Karkar


    well, the course gives you some ideas, but i hardly would call them lessons, the explanations are vague and need a lot of clarification what I came out of it with is that you have to get into the mind of your character but not take it outside with you, it doesnt really go into the how or give tips. Further more the section about method acting was lacking in information and assumed you already knew about method acting (even tho it is called a 101 course)

    • Jean-Paul Wood


    Could have used a little bit more to it. The information in the course was nothing i hadn't already learned through highschool theater programs. Improvements could have been made by way of video segments to demonstrate certain objectives and possibly a quiz at the beginning and then repeated at the end to see if the student has learned anything new
