How We Develop Your Talent

A Personal Message From Brian Timoney

Developing your acting talent is our prime focus. We want you to be able to deliver not just good acting, but outstanding acting.

The process of doing this is much more than ‘getting you to say lines and not bump into the furniture!’ It’s about going deeper, and bringing your uniqueness into your work.

The two qualities that are essential for outstanding acting are the ability to generate emotional experiences and the ability to express those experiences without fear.

“My job is usually to express emotion as freely as possible.”
~ Meryl Streep

When we work with you, we take you through a process that allows you to open up emotionally and express yourself fully. This allows your authentic self to be brought into your work.

Outstanding acting is not a case of hiding behind a character; it’s about being so in touch with yourself that you can reveal the life of the character through you.

We understand this process extremely well, and all of our coaches have lived through it themselves. We have a very strong empathy for your development and an unbridled passion for acting. For us, and I expect for you too, it fulfills a deep artistic desire.

As well as being outstanding at the art of acting, we also want you to work. This means that we also teach you the ‘business’ of acting. We believe this combination of acting ability and business know-how is the key to acting success. With the team’s collective 90 years plus experience of the industry and by bringing in industry insiders to teach you first-hand, we arm you with all the tools and techniques you need.

I can assure you that you will not meet a more dedicated and passionate team of acting coaches who are here to serve you. You just need to be ready for the challenge

To your acting success!

Brian Timoney
