Plus Pilots: Character Analysis for Actors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed course I've always wanted to learn how to act. I bought some books at the end of the Britannica article on acting, e.g. Stanislavsky, Olivier, Cole and Chinoy. But, I could never get far from reading on my own. I can tell from this intro lecture that a course like this would be very good and help me achieve my goal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absorbing Course I really like the professor and the content. She is engaging, specific, yet nicely concise. I find her instruction authoritative and approachable. I took away a good framework for approaching my own characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging. Informative. Insightful. Those are the adjectives I would use to describe this pilot lesson.. As a non-actor, I was fascinated by the process of how and actor goes about getting into the a role of a character. The material was also clearly delivered and well-presented. The teachers's delivery was spot on as well. I would love to see her do more pilots or even present a whole course on acting.
