Anyone can drive a car from point A to point B. Just like any actor can stand up and deliver a scene. However, it is those drivers who know the ins and outs of the engine, and who understand the mechanics of the car that will have a more thrilling ride. We like to think of our Acting Technique course as a pit-stop; a place where you, as an aspiring actor, can get to know your acting engine before you 'get it on the road'.
In this 6-week course, Richard Cornally will arm you with the essential tools needed to deliver a truthful and thrilling performance; everything from understanding the anatomy of a scene to motivational and characterisation techniques. Each week, you will work with scene partners - who might be new or returning students from previous terms - putting all of your acquired knowledge to practice, before eventually getting up in front of the camera in the last week of the course.

Richard studied at ATYP and is a graduate of The Actors Studio Australia. He has been training actors since 2006 and became General Manager of The Actors Studio Australia in 2010. His recent acting credits include Bedroom Farce (Darlinghurst Theatre), Tom and Nicole (Melbourne Comedy Festival) and the feature film Twenty Ten which won Best Picture at The Clearwater Film Festival in Florida.
Clarence was the founder and Artistic Director of The Actors Studio Australia and has spent more than a decade training actors. He is the architect of a groundbreaking approach harnessing techniques from master teachers such as Meisner, Strasberg, Stanislavsky, Chubbuck and more designed to build performers who bring, depth, honesty and a vivid sense of truth to their work. Clarence unpacks the craft of acting with unique clarity and arms the actor one tool at a time. His approach aims to teach actors to work from the inside out; to work from a starting point of real feelings rather than false external expression; to fill their work with a vital element of truth; and to always be guided by the principle that emotional authenticity is the key to engaging an audience’s imagination.
