A very special guest and dear friend, the legendary indie queen, Parker Posey joined us for an interactive Q+A. It was our last Character Lab session for the summer. She’s a master at creating a character and dropped a ton of wisdom. One student asked her, “how do you deal with being intimidated by certain actors on set?” Ya gotta check out her gem of a response, it is pure CI.
Watch Parker Posey’s response in this short video from class.
Check out Parker Posey’s awesome review of our Online Program.
What a naturally brilliant teacher Josh Pais is. It’s both a delight and inspiration to listen to any teacher who has learned through experience, which he’s had, along with the great teachers of yore.
It takes practice to remain present and awake when working in film and television, and Josh’s tools for this are both fun and excellent.
This online interactive class, and dare I say, experiential journey, is a nice reminder that we must never stop being students.
People in our culture think that if you achieve success, you’ve captured some golden ring, and then you’re not scared anymore.
But if you don’t remain a student in this life, and honor all that “not knowing” brings, and the “committed impulse” to listen to and follow, then you miss the rollercoaster ride to fulfillment and perspective.
For years I’ve wanted to start inviting some of the amazing actors, directors, and producers I’ve worked with to class. Now that our classes are on Zoom it’s so easy for these stars to drop in and share their insights. Very dynamic people are gonna be dropping in soon, you’ll see.
We hope to see you at one of our upcoming classes soon!
