One Day Intensive with Andy McPhee

Saturday 23 February 

09:00 - 18:00 

The Intensive will be covering the regular Actor skills - auditions, scene work, characters, breaking down scenes.

But also a really important area that we all know about, read about and hear about but only a small percentage of people actually stick at -- our Mindset!

Circumstances can stop us, but it doesn't need to be that way. It actually takes real intention and serious action and it doesn't need to be stressful. We will discuss strategies to get our Mindset clear.
