In this 2-day intensive John Orcsik will teach this group of actors how to create emotions on screen without the need to delve into personal emotional experiences or recall while seamlessly expressing to the audience the emotional experience of the character. These are tools that an actor can use throughout their career, no matter what mood you are in, you can create the right emotion on screen for your character with these physiological processes.
