The  Technique


What technique does Nancy teach?

Nancy teaches a proven method for screen auditioning and acting. The technique meshes Stanislavskian naturalistic acting with a pragmatic approach to calibrating performance specifically for camera. The technique identifies specific strategies for both auditioning and playing on screen. An actor learns to use his or her own unique personal energy in creating a believable on screen character.  The basic tenants are:

  • Make strong and specific choices that answer the basic “W” Stanislavski questions.
  • Play high stakes
  • Use your own personal energy and charisma to play a stated performance
  • target changes and discoveries in each scene
  • Tell the Story
  • Play in the eyes
