"He was always up to something: Mischief got him going; it motivated him. He played tricks on all of us--on himself--to keep us fresh and agitated. He said it kept us real. There was never a dull moment, and the proof is on the screen: We were all wonderful." Jo Van Fleet on James Dean and "East of Eden"/Interview with James Grissom/1990/

Unleash your creativity. Get out of your head on-camera. Live in the moment. Rob Adler Studio, home of AdlerImprov, for Actors not Caricatures, specializing in on-camera performance coaching for film and television.

www.AdlerImprov.com Improvisation is the essential skill for professional actors in film and television. If a performance appears rehearsed or anticipated, if an actor is in their head, trying to recreate a previous ‘perfect’ performance, or recalling an emotional or sense memory, then they are not entirely present in the moment and the take or audition is unusable. AdlerImprov offers a method for preparing SCRIPTED SCENES that appears as though the scene is happening for the very first time, every time. In our classes, we teach actors to locate their “play state,” so that they may avoid thinking, judging, becoming audience and become alive through action, because GREAT ACTING LOOKS IMPROVISED. www.AdlerImprov.com

Mission: CLASSES * COACHING for ACTORS not CARICATURES heighten your PRESENCE get out of you MIND learn by DOING www.AdlerImprov.com Your intrument is your self. Unlike a piano, where a teacher can tell you where to place your fingers to play a chord, as an actor your instrument is unique to you, and no one can tell you how to play it. Traditional acting classes leave actors in their head. We offer a laboratory in which to play and discover how it works. You use your instrument and learn how it plays, where the chords are. If you sit and watch other actors like in most acting classes, your instrument is surely learning to be a good audience member, perhaps a good critic. The problem with this is that the mind can be the greatest detriment to even the most talented actor. Worse than simply not using your instrument by sitting on your duff in acting class, you are reinforcing your critical, future & past thinking, invisible mind. Would you learn to box by watching others punch? Acting must be learned by the body, not the mind. www.AdlerImprov.com

Mike Nichols: Be The Lesson

"Let the career grab you in the midst of your extraordinary life. Commit to the work. Apply what you've learned. That's where the good work will come from, always.

"Good work and good artists are sacrificed daily to careerism, ambition, placement. Don't beg to have others look at you: Become so amplified by life that others cannot look away. Be the lesson."--Mike Nichols #FolliesOfGod

🌟Peter said this quote after a round of one of our favorite games we call “Blob on a Bench,” a modification of💥Spolin’s “Who Game”: One actor chooses the relationship then shows the other who they are, without telling a story.⚡️Peters quote seems as true in life as it does in character!💥

In a column for @Backstagecast, Rob Adler wrote: “Using games to study acting can liberate us from the constraints of adulthood. Just like acting, games have agreed upon (imaginary) rules (circumstances) in which the player (actor) must spontaneously (in the moment) improvise how (actions) to survive the onslaught of sofa cushions, get the basketball in the hoop or Juliet off the balcony (objective). Games are childlike, but can be more than kid’s stuff.”

Paul said this in class a few years ago but we never forgot it. Working in Hollywood it’s easy to get lost in the magic of it all but it’s important to remember the power actors have to reach people through story telling on stage and screen. To that end, go see #Blackkklansman

Empathy leads us out of the comfort of our own experiences and allows us to begin imagining walking in someone else’s shoes. Studio founder Rob Adler teaches actors to act from their sense of empathy.

In my classes we approach improvisation like jazz and we do exercises to throw us off-balance and use the crises to harness creativity.
