Do audiences or auditions care about our choice in technique & where we studied, or do they simply want an experience that changes them?..

Yet how on earth can an audience be expected to experience an emotion, if the actor isn't really going through an emotional journey truthfully in the given world their character lives in?.. Too often actors 'play' an idea in their mind, missing out on the exhilaration of real compelling work! 

Whilst over 37 Academy award nominations came through actors who trained extensively in 'Sanford Meisner', and The Actor's Journey was the first to bring the entire Meisner technique to Queensland, at the end of the day, it is the individual who brings themselves truthfully to training that grows most. 

With its emphasis on truthful and spontaneous responses, the correct approach will help you connect with your character honestly, unlocking new levels of emotional range and allow authenticity in your performances.

Developed by legendary acting coach Sanford Meisner, this technique has been used by some of the most brilliant actors of our time, including Sandra Bullock, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Cruise and the list goes on!

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, the Sanford Meisner technique can take your craft to the next level and help you stand out in both screen auditions and on stage.
Sure, nothing is free in this world, though thankfully experiencing a Meisner class is!

Come audit a two-hour professional class with Queensland's leading Meisner teachers. A great opportunity to ask questions and meet other inspiring people.
