Rob Nilsson’s Direct Action method emphasizes relaxation, concentration and primal emotion. The workshop develops improvisational skills and personal power, creating an “engaged ensemble” of players, working together towards the creation of a feature film.
In the first phase, the workshop will concentrate on the development of Direct Action techniques and improvisations around the subject of relationships, divorce, and divorce law. Characters will be created and research will include talks by experts in the field.
In the second phase we will make the feature film, working title: DIVORCE. The entire film will be shot at the Meets the Eye studio with it’s state of the art green screen stage. Each workshop member will be cast and appear in the film. No guarantees can be made regarding the size of the role. Casting and editing decisions are made by the director on the basis of the requirements of the film.
Whether you consider yourself a professional actor or an inspired amateur, you are welcome to audition for the workshop. Players with legal and business experience particularly welcome.
Nilsson’s films are beautiful, exciting, imaginative, unfamiliar and outside of that, very good.
