  • The Actor's ToolKit

  • The Actor's Way

The Actor's Toolkit: Live Stream, (Platform: Zoom) is a  75 min live stream webinar. All live stream sessions are recorded and made available for review on the members only page which you can find at www.nikeimoru.com.  The members only page is where I share my Actor's blog,  tips, tools, & techniques for on-camera acting, auditioning, craft and process for stage and screen, scene study exercises.  TATK also includes coaching segments/podcasts from The Actor's Way Studio and other coaching moments. There will also be monthly assignments for the Actor, from scenes/monologues, to online tasks, self-tapes and other exercises to improve value, business or just keep current with what is going on in our Pacific NW industry.

The Actor's Clinic is the haven inside the safe-haven. Between 6.30-7.00pm, during the Actor's relax'n'prep period, Actor's can have a quick 1-1 with me to discuss an Actor 'thing', from Anxiety to Zombies, (perhaps angst about zombies?!) for stage or screen. The Actor's Clinic is a space to get guidance and or advice quickly.  It is first-come-first served, 5 mins per person if there are others waiting. "if the chair is empty", take a seat.  Actor's Clinic is for the benefit of members taking the Actor's Way.

The Actor's Way is where all my teaching and coaching will now be centered. The focus is on-camera training and coaching. However, please note that I am a  proud classically-trained theatre actress and it goes without saying that everything I know about acting, came from theatre first and foremost.  So if you are a theatre Actor, I speak your language and if you are a veteran stage Actor looking to deepen your on-camera skills, The Actor's ToolKit/The Actor's Way is perfect for you.

The Journey or 'cycle' of The Actor's Way is as follows. Each week we will focus on one of the teachings below. We will explore its importance to acting for the camera.

  • BBC + T

Breathing (B) - when you are nervous is your breathing flow-based or ragged. Amped up or held, constricted, frozen?  How do you adjust it to enhance and improve your audition?

Being  (B) - do you listen actively or simply hear passively when you are on set or on stage? What do you listen for? Why? Does your process have a sense of flow, or does it judder along haphazardly.

Connecting (C) - how intentional is your process, practice or preparation for auditioning or being on set? For how long are you able to remain in an intentional space without becoming rigid, detached, unnatural or distracted

Technique. (T) Meisner, Stanislavsky, Uta Hagen, or any Master Teacher  who has disseminated their theories and philosophies of acting and the application to acting for the camera.

Each month we will focus on a single practice, starting with Breathing, in April. Being, in May. Connecting in June. Technique in July. We will work with film/tv scripts which will be provided.
