Directors Guild Workshop: STEPHEN BAYLY - AN INTRODUCTION TO MEISNER ACTING TECHNIQUE FOR DIRECTORS
thumbnail
Saturday 25th June 10am-5pm

George Bernard Shaw Studio
Royal Academy of Dramatic Art
London WC1E 6ED


A repeat of last year's sell-out workshop with director, producer and actor Stephen Bayly

 ‘Take it from a Director.  If you get an actor that Sandy Meisner has trained you’ve been blessed.’ Elia Kazan

A one-day introduction to the methods of Sanford Meisner, as used by actor/director Sidney Pollock, writer/director David Mamet, etc. to draw truthful and emotionally rich performances from their actors, whether on stage or screen. 

Meisner is increasingly being taught in British drama schools and a generation of young actors are growing up with skills with which many of us are unfamiliar. Guild member Stephen Bayly’s workshop gives clear insights to this popular development of “method acting”, and teaches directors to work with Meisner-trained actors to ‘personalise’ the text as a way of bringing it to life.

Unbeknownst to many of us in Britain, many of America’s most dynamic and watchable screen actors have been trained by Meisner (Gene Hackman, Ed Harris, Robert Duvall, Joanne Woodward, Jon Voight, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dianne Keaton, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, William H. Macy, to mention a few). How do these actors work?  How can directors use these techniques to get more honest and intense performances from their own cast? Fellow Stephen Bayly’s workshop will offer an alternative to Method Acting, and teach directors to help actors ‘personalise’ the text as a way of bringing it to life.

Stephen Bayly has produced many films including Richard III and Mrs. Dalloway and directed the Cannes sleeper hit Coming Up Roses. He was Director of the National Film and Television School 1997 to 2002. Stephen has studied Sanford Meisner’s methods intensively for five years at The Actors Temple in London, and now teaches directors regularly in Cuba, Nigeria, Spain, London, and The Screen Academy Wales and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
