Drawing upon the techniques of the great early century teachers as well as contemporary masters, Jason Weiss teaches an amalgamated style that is focused on identifying the strengths of each individual student. Acting is a highly personal art form and the goal of the JW Studio is to help each student develop his or her own unique style.
By combining scene study with personal exercises, actors are able to find a first-hand connection with their characters and thereby bring a deeper sense of truthfulness and sophistication to their work. The classes are designed to help actors bridge the gap among all acting disciplines: film, TV, theatre, voice-over, commercial, and auditioning. The business of acting and auditioning technique is covered at great length on a week-to-week basis and it is not uncommon for special industry guests to stop by to offer their experienced opinions.
The JW Studio is a place for serious actors to call their home. It is where they can explore their specific strengths, weaknesses, triumphs, and fears in the safe environment of the classroom. As a result, JW Studio actors are able to find and identify their individual type, leading to more accurate branding and superb marketability.
