UPDATE:  Due to Hurricane Sandy, Adrienne has postponed her workshop one week, so there is still actually time to sign up! Please call the number below.  You’re probably asking yourself, what does directing actors have to do with post production? It’s simple — the better you are at your craft of directing, the less time you’ll need to spend in post to cut around a terrible performance!  There are so many variables that go into making a film, and the more equipped you can be with the tools that will help you become a better director, the better your film will be.  I took Adrienne Weiss’s class a few years ago, and it was instrumental in preparing me how work with actors in all of my short films. If you are planning to direct a short, your first feature, a webisode or any project where you’ll be working with actors — Adrienne Weiss’s Directing Actors Foundation Workshop is the best investment you’ll make in yourself.  Adrienne works out of NYC, but she’ll be in Los Angeles later this week to teach this incredible workshop. Sign up today!  For info, call:  917-755-5026.  Here is the schedule:

“I loved this workshop. Adrienne’s a first rate horse whisperer, with a light touch, a great sense of humor, and a refreshingly direct manner.  Everyone, both directors and actors, comes away the better for it. “

Marc Turtletaub, producer, Little Miss Sunshine

“The Directing Actors Foundation Workshop is amazing. Adrienne created an incredibly nurturing and fun environment, which gave me the confidence to explore and experiment. The Tools method gave me a concrete way to understand the dynamics of a scene and communicate effectively with actors. It was a totally empowering experience!”

Marilyn Agrelo, director, Mad Hot Ballroom

“Adrienne’s workshop opened up a whole new world for me as an aspiring director.  Rooted in real-life experiences with actors, her techniques really get to the heart of what directors need to say and what actors need to hear to make scenes explode with life.”
