About the course

A note from Sancia Robinson,

When I asked my producer friends what they were looking for in self tapes across the board it was LAYERS.

It was the person that was delivering deeply connected work that held their attention and helped them book the job.

My goal with this four week course is to give you tools to help you achieve these layers so the work will be deeply embedded in your body. To take you away from a superficial interpretation of the work and guide you towards connecting into your truth, as well as the truth of the writer and the story. But I also want to help you fall in love with the process of acting again. To surrender to taking however Long it takes to make the work come to life.

I think so many of us get caught up in outcomes and we forget that it’s the joy of creation, and connection that made us fall in love with acting in the first place, so we’re gonna be digging deep into connecting with the work, the audience our heart and our love of words.

To help us remember that the reward of the work is the work itself and of course we will as always – connect in with our deep and abiding respect for specificity.
