PERSONALIZATION

 

The awareness, clarity, and connectedness of the actor’s mind, heart, and body are essential in bringing a fictional character to a complex, spontaneous, and compelling life. As actors, we examine the human heart and human behavior from our personal perspectives, which always includes personal experiences and our imagination. They can’t be separated. Personalization leads the actor to more fully understand concepts/tools, ‘transference’ (‘substitution’), and when and how to use this tool of ‘transference’ effectively.

Personalization

The Fusion of Personal Experience and Imagination

In Personalization I, an eclectic variety of techniques are used to help the actor find what allows him/her to discover and bring his/her most personal, authentic, and unique self to the work.

The fusion of personal experiences and imagination is what allows an actor to fully personalize the work. The awareness, clarity, and connectedness of the actor’s mind, heart, and body are essential in bringing a fictional character to a complex, spontaneous, and compelling life. As actors, we examine the human heart and human behavior from our personal perspectives, which always includes personal experiences and our imagination. They can’t be separated. This class will lead the actor to more fully understand concepts/tools, ‘transference’ (‘substitution’), and when and how to use this tool of ‘transference’ effectively.

Application of the Tools

PRE-REQUISITE:
Personalization I

From the work explored in Personalization I, Personalization II continues the journey for the actor to find and bring their unique selves to the work. In a safe environment, the actor will be working on structured, non-scripted exercises and improvisations including: Object Exercises ‘in crisis,’ private moment work (solo), structured partner exercises, and finally, high-stakes, long-form ‘yin-yang’ improvisations.

The actor will continue to safely, readily, and deeply access emotional life, sense memories, and to efficiently contact, trust, and release their instincts and impulses through the duration of the course. All of this will be addressed and explained in class as well how all of this applies to the professional work.

“Taking ‘Up Close & Personal’ with Marilyn McIntyre gave me the confidence in my technique to know how to prepare myself for deeply emotional scenes on camera, in a close up. A must for every actor!”

“Marilyn McIntyre’s Up-Close & Personal class is a game changer for any actor that is serious about their craft! It’s amazing to see the techniques taught in the class played back to you so you can see them working for yourself. Then we discussed what we saw and were able to make adjustments. I learned so much and grew a tremendous amount over the three day intensive.”

“I took Marilyn McIntyre’s On Camera Personalization 3 day workshop called “Up Close & Personal” that was given at the Howard Fine Studio in June of 2018.  I had previously taken Marilyn’s Personalization class (not on camera) somewhat before.  The footage recorded of the various exercises over those three days show that my acting noticeably improved in that three day period.  Marilyn is an actor’s teacher, very sympathetic to what all actors go through, but she still tells it straight in order to give the actor honest feedback.  I couldn’t recommend this workshop more.”

“Amazing class and beautiful people. The best way to spend the weekend is to do something you love, and I’m glad I spent 3 days working hard in the intensive on camera class with Marilyn McIntyre, who is, by the way, one of the best coaches I’ve had! She really put me in touch with myself and created a safe space to be vulnerable. I’m very grateful that I got to be a part of such a wonderful experience.

Thank you so much for the class!!”
