An Actors Immersion Workshop that guides you through many phases of creating and playing a role. You’re given a series of homework assignments, a challenging inspiring introduction to the weekend at the orientation then a marathon of evocative exercises in class on day one. This culminates into day two with your role being professionally videoed and you getting a compelling scene for your demo reel. MAY 4-5-6, 2018.
The 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp is for Actors that want a deeply immersive acting experience and a powerful scene for your demo reel at a reasonable price. Learn empowering techniques to help you create rich, compelling and memorable characters from Brad Milne, veteran coach and a co-star of the upcoming Lifetime MOW “You Killed My Mother” as the ignominious Casey Flay. This two-day intensive workshop and comprehensive course provides mission critical knowledge for all levels of actors.
Milne began coaching actors in 1999 with the opening of his first studio and continues to successfully train actors in Canada and the USA. Brad’s approach helps actors create compelling memorable characters and book roles in studio and indie films, TV-series, MOW’s, and stage. As a Film, TV, and Stage Actor he extensively studied with top coaches in Los Angeles and Toronto. Born from a relentless work ethic over 25+ years Milne arrived at PERGE a powerful script interpretation and character creation technique that is quickly digested and compellingly applied by actors at all levels.
“Milne Studio Classes and 48 Hr Bootcamp: Brad is an inspiring acting teacher. I love how he passionately challenges and supports his students; this fact alone won my attention. My background as a coach/counsellor, and my own personal approach, gives me an awareness of how much energy, care and effort it takes. Most people simply wouldn’t do it to the extent that Brad does – he doesn’t give up on his students! It takes courage and leadership to inspire others to believe in themselves. What I find most impressive in his teaching is that he continues to be a student on an ongoing basis, constantly adding value to others. In addition, his refined intuition helps him to keenly tune into his students’ work process making his individual attention, in my humble opinion, unmatched. I highly recommend him as an acting coach and definitely will continue to learn more from him.” Elaine Ma, Toronto Actress & Certified Life Coach
“I had the privilege to work with Brad Milne for about eight months, Brad is extremely committed to help you achieve your goals, he genuinely cares and really puts in all his effort. He makes every moment enjoyable. He coached and prepped me for a leading role in a movie and before then I had no experience in acting, other than the odd school play. After only a few months of his amazing coaching I got a call confirming I had the role. He really broke down my character and I felt fully prepared once shooting started. I will continue to work with Brad in the future and I hope other actors and actresses will have the privilege to work with Brad and get to experience his amazing knowledge of the art. His classes are truly something special. I can never say thank you enough! All the best Brad, Michaela.” Michaela du Toit / Ice Girls Star, Toronto Actress
“I just completed Brad’s 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp. It was a tremendous experience with a great group of people and an excellent instructor. Brad reached down inside of me and drew out a performance that I never would have believed I could deliver. He did the same with the others in the group. I highly recommend the Bootcamp.” Jack Langhorn, Toronto Actor
“Just finished 3 Day Bootcamp! Intense three days full of discovery, more discovery, inspiration, (from Brad and fellow actors) and a new found confidence that “I am enough”. Many thanks to Brad for his patience, wisdom and dedication to not just myself, but to ALL the actors in guiding us to new discoveries and challenging us! Shout out also to the fabulous fellow actors who I met! What a beautiful and talented group of people.” Bernadette Medhurst, Toronto Actress
We cover all aspects of the Milne Studio training system, overview the journey you’ll take and make plans to ensure a productive outcome for all.
THE INTERPRETATION – A comprehensive, thorough and in-depth investigation into Milne’s technique, PERGE which helps you effectively breakdown scripts and sides giving you stronger role prep, character creation and improved audition skills. Consistently applying precise interpretive steps helps you create deeper and more dimensionally.
THE FOUNDATION – You’ll engage in breathing, energy, voice, movement, interpersonal connection, improvisation, storytelling, monologues, scene study and performance exercises. By the end of the day you’ll be immersed in character and ready to play the role, with residue of the day’s work present until the next morning. Applying best practices greatly improves both acting and performance ability.
THE SET – The day starts with a brief warm up (foundation and interpretation exercises) and discussion about pacing through a shoot day. Learning to connect and reconnect with your role is essential. In character and ready to play the role you’ll move into our on-camera environment. While directors love it when actors hit it on the first take, we’re often called upon to repeat a scene or parts of a scene several times for coverage. Actors have to be ready.
THE PERFORMANCE – Time to step into the ring. Like any sport or engagement, proper preparation is critical to your success. The same applies in acting: we must precisely prepare for the part, make the focus of the work the back, front, top, bottom and all the sides of the role, then trust that we can let the prep go and live in the present, breathing quietly in our bodies on screen. We professionally shoot your performance with a Canon 6D and ZOOM H4n audio recorder, then master it and deliver it to you via Vimeo.
