You’ve dreamed of making the break…
so finally, make it this year
Dear Aspiring Actor
If you’re stuck in a job you hate, and dreaming of a new life on the stage or screen, please read this important message. Grab a coffee, switch off your email, and over the next 10 minutes I’ll show you how your acting dream is real and achievable.
Yes I know, right now that will sound like a hollow promise. If you’re surrounded by people telling you that acting is a pipe dream…that actors are always out of work, or worse, you don’t have what it takes…then I’m sure your confidence has taken quite a knock.
But I’m here to tell you, the acting world is not an impenetrable fortress! People can, and do, break in every day. So if you’ve got the talent, the drive and the training, there’s nothing to hold you back.
I ditched the day job…so can you
Sheesh, I hated the daily grind. Getting squashed in with hundreds of miserable commuters, then seeing the same old bored and grumpy faces at work every day! I knew there had to be something more rewarding – something better.
So when I had the chance to train as an actor, I grabbed it like a shot. And without exaggeration, the decision changed my life.
Since then, I’ve worked with a host of leading actors and directors.
I’ve gained a reputation as one of the world’s top Method Acting Coaches.
And, along with my hand- picked team of experts here at The Actors Studio, I’ve helped hundreds of aspiring actors – from London to L.A.
By the way – all my students have one thing in common
Every single actor I’ve trained…actors you’ll have seen on stage, on TV and on the big screen…they all started out in your shoes.
No-one is born with an Equity Card!Take Damien. Three years ago, he was desperate to find something more rewarding. He felt the urge to act. So he seized the moment and came along to one of my events. And quickly, he realised this acting lark was well within his grasp.
He studied hard, and loved every minute. And today, he lives in LA working full time, flitting between TV and film roles.
….Shall I tell you why?
It’s because he discovered – and mastered – the Method Acting secrets, as used by the world’s greatest actors.
I want you to think about that for a moment..about what it means to you.
Imagine sharing the exact set of tools and techniques used by screen legends like Brando, Hoffman, Streep and De Niro – plus modern day giants like Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman and Forest Whitaker.
One Oscar winner after another has sworn by Method Acting. And every one of my students, just like Damien, has had the inside track.
Now you can too:
CENTRAL LONDON: DATE – 28 February – 1st March 2020
I want to immerse you in The Method, and help you put it to work. So I’m inviting you to apply for a space at my next bootcamp in London.
WARNING: this is not a place to sit at the back and take notes! It’s a lively, interactive experience with no hiding places.
Your acting talent will be laid bare…
…And just wait till you see the results.
So…What Can You Expect?
From the first session, you’ll be stretched. Mentally and physically!
ON DAY 1 we’ll focus on opening you up – getting to grips with who you really are, and what you can offer the world as an actor. Think of it this way: every character you’ll ever play will come from deep inside you – so this day is your chance to lay the foundations for authentic acting.
ON DAY 2 we’re exploring the techniques of Method Acting. You’ll learn how to connect with any character you play, and how to feel at home in any imagined space. You’ll also learn to summon up emotion on demand, so you can reach the same heights in every take, every performance.
ON DAY 3 we’re getting deep inside the acting process. You’ll be working on scripts with a scene partner, building characters from scratch, creating complex scenes that wring every last drop of truth from the text…and getting critiqued! Learn what you need to work on, to propel your acting forward.
One Word: Believability
That’s our theme for the bootcamp: making your acting more believable. Bringing you to that point where an audience can forget that you’re acting and lose themselves in your performance.
Believability is the actor’s ultimate challenge, and it lies at the heart of The Method. So we’ll be taking you through exercises that give you emotional truth. Exercises that use your own life, and the senses that activate your memories, to help you connect with a script, a character, at a deep and personal level.
How Will Your Acting Improve?
As with all things in life, you’ll get from it what you put in. As a minimum though, I want you to leave here with a new understanding of The Method and how to apply it.
You will discover how to:
- Develop in-depth, rounded and fully believable characters
- Find your character’s unique physicality and movement
- Use your inner emotions, to play highly charged scenes
- Act consistently, by summoning emotion on demand
- Use improvisation to make your scenes exciting and unpredictable
- Feel connected to your character’s environment
- Analyse a script to bring out subtext and character quirks
- Let scene descriptions influence your character’s behaviour
- Build instant rapport with other actors – a vital skill for film work
- Overcome anxiety through mental and physical relaxation
- …And so much more. It’s a rich experience: personally, and professionally.
No-one else here in the UK teaches The Method in this depth. Our drama schools just pay it lip service, nothing more. If you want full-blown access to the best Method Coaches around, this is where you’ll find it.
OK…So Where is it Going to Lead You?
To be frank, that’s up to you. I’m not offering a magic wand, or some passport to instant wealth and fame. There’s work to do!
All I can do is shape you as an actor and point you in the right direction.
But – I will promise you this:
If you’ve got the talent and the drive to succeed, our 3 days together will be the turning point in your acting career. It’s the time you’ll look back at when you land your first major role, or (let’s dream big!) when you’re up on a podium clutching a gong and blubbing like Gwyneth Paltrow!
Just ask some of the actors who got started right here:
“It pushed me to my barriers”
“It changes you as a person”
“A real, unreal experience”
Are YOU Cut Out For This?
You know what – actors come in every shape and size, and start at every time of life. So I’m not looking for people who fit a particular mould!
I don’t care if you’re 18 or 65, and I don’t care if you’ve never picked up a script in your life. All I ask for is a spark of enthusiasm…and an open mind.
You see, The Method gives us a unique way of working that draws on life experience and emotional memories. You need an open mind because we can’t reach the truth inside you if we’re dealing with mental blocks. From day one, we’ll be touching raw nerves and it will get painful at times. If you’re uncomfortable with this, please do not apply.
How to Apply
I’m sure you’ve seen acting courses that cost thousands, and barely deliver. So I’ve set out to offer something altogether different: a more powerful – yet more affordable – start to your acting career.
The fee for our 3 days together is just £645. You pay the first £100 today when you submit your application – then if you’re successful, the balance of £545 is due within 48 hours.
I insist on the £100 application fee, because it tells me you’re serious – not just dabbling, as many do. But don’t worry. If for any reason I can’t offer you a place, the fee will be refunded. You have nothing to lose.
Boot Camp Date: 28 February – 1st March 2020
Venue: The Courtyard Theatre, 40 Pitfield Street, London, N1 6EU
Please note: if your application is successful your £100 assessment fee will be put towards your final balance payment. If your application is unsuccessful then we will refund your assessment fee in full. Also, in the unlikely event that you decide not to continue with your application you have fourteen days from the day after you paid your assessment fee to cancel your application and receive a full refund of all monies paid. If the Boot Camp takes place within this fourteen day period, the cancellation period ends when the Boot Camp starts. You must inform us in writing if you wish to cancel.
My Zero Risk Guarantee
If you don’t know me, I can show you all the testimonials in the world…you’re still going to worry “Will this guy deliver?”. I get that. So I’m backing up this course with a Zero Risk Guarantee:
If you reach the end of Day One and decide it’s not for you, I will refund your entire investment on the spot
No quibbles or weasel clauses hidden in the small print. Just love it or leave…it’s that simple.
Are You In, Or Out?
Remember, acting is a genuine alternative to the rat race. A life without the daily commute, endless meetings and office politics!
Yes of course, as actors we work hard and it’s not all rosy every day. But ultimately we’re doing something that enriches our lives – and contrary to myth, we can make a very good living in the process.
Come along to bootcamp, and I’ll show you how…
To Your Acting Success!
P.S. I’ve helped countless aspiring actors, on both sides of the Atlantic. If you agree it’s your turn now, join me for 3 days you’ll never forget.
I’ve just completed Brian Timoney’s Introduction to Method Acting Boot Camp – and, my word, it was literally the best weekend I’ve ever had in my life. So many things to do – it was so intense and we were pushed so hard – but when we got the results, it just felt absolutely incredible. It was life-changing and I just wish it could just go on for ever and ever! And to all of you out there who are watching this, who are on his website, I urge you just to fill in that application form and just go for it because you’re not going to regret it – trust me!

After several conversations I had with friends (Actors) in the past I’ve heard very good things about Brian Timoney and I thought I would give the classes a try. The whole three days of the course I had with Brian was very professional and the method acting classes have giving me so much within the three days time. I learnt so many techniques and methods regarding the characters, audition techniques and lots more. I am very pleased that I had the classes with Brian and I am willing to attend even more advanced classes in near future.
Shezai Fejzo, Harrow
I would like to take this opportunity to again thank Brian for such an amazing and liberating weekend. Before I did the bootcamp I was seriously considering giving up acting, which I now believe is due to my lack of passion with the techniques I was using. They were beneficial body and voice techniques but deep down I know and definitely agree with Brian that they are just not enough to create great acting. I want people to believe what I am doing/ feeling/ who I am playing and I know if I train with The Method I will get to that place! I feel as if I have found my path again, one that I was steered off years ago by well-meaning tutors. I have heard many a tutor banging on about training and I never felt much enthusiasm for it, but now I most certainly do! I actually believe that I can get somewhere with this training.
I would happily recommend anybody to join Brian’s course as he is an excellent teacher and such an inspiration. I hope to work again Please tell Brian thank you – thank you for re-igniting my passion for acting with his Method training. I am at last on the right path and know deep in my soul that this is what I NEED to do with my life!
I would happily recommend anybody to join Brian’s course as he is an excellent teacher and such an inspiration. I hope to work again with him in the future.

I was preparing myself to write you an e-mail with all of the best words that truly come from my heart about the course and the great experience you gave me and to the whole group. I must emphasise that it was the best course I have ever been to and the most challenging as well, in my entire life. I learnt a lot and I see life different now.
This is for those who would like to do the course:
If you would like to be an actor and you are looking for the right training course….and you come across Mr. Brian Timoney’s courses, my advice is… stop there… you are lucky, in fact, very lucky! Start your course! I believe I achieved more than I expected and I saw everything happening…..in fact a few times I even cried, couldn’t help it!
It was brilliant and I am proud to have decided to do it. I would like to continue with it as it is for my best and you only get one chance.
If any of your future students would like to call me in order to speak about the course please give them my number or my e-mail.
I can’t wait to see you and hopefully to take part in your next course.
Thank you so much.

Just wanted to drop an email to once again thank Brian and the Team for such a fantastic weekend – you were all amazing.
How mind-blowing it was and how revealing and powerful.
“Amazing is just not enough to describe this journey! It was the best experience I’ve had so far! Bloody brilliant!!!!! Going to miss the interaction and a lot more of course!!!”
“An amazing, inspiring and electrifying experience! Great people, great trainers, I want to say thank you and really felt like Feb 15th 2013 was day one of something very special to come =)”
“I survived Boot Camp! What a mind-blowing experience! It’s really not what I imagined but was so much more. If you’re reading this message and haven’t been but want to, what ya waiting for??
Your take more away from this than you expect. In fact I would truly say it’s a life-changing experience. If I feel like that after three days, then what would it be like if longer? We were all in the same boat; didn’t matter if you had experience or not. It’s time to WAKE UP – I’ve been flat-lining for a very long time. I’ve existed and functioned, but this has totally made me look at life differently. The start of a new journey… I’ve got something to get up and be excited about – and guess what? No one can take that away! What’s life all about anyway…?
You’re not just going to experience some great people teaching and coaching you, but you’re going to meet some absolutely amazing people – I really mean that. Going to miss ya all tomorrow!
PS: If anyone gets the Boot Camp blues, ya know where I am. X”
A fantastic experience. Brian and all the others were amazing teachers. An amazing ride.”
“Yay!! Just finished the Method Acting Boot Camp and met some amazing people. It’s a shame we all have parted ways and the amazing experience is over but hopefully we all keep in touch!”
“Just got back home and I am missing Boot Camp – a great experience and an awesome weekend. I learned so much in these last three days and met some great people. Thank you.”
I wanted to say a great big thank you to you, Brian, Natalie, Hazel, Robbie & Portia for the absolutely fabulous Boot Camp experience. The entire three days were such an amazing experience for me – allowing me realise my desires, emotions, capabilities and my true self. The Boot Camp for me, was the door that opened, to lead me on the right path in terms of my future happiness. The team liberated me and have given me the courage to seriously plan the rest of my life. I’m going for it!!! Acting is the way forward for me. Without the Boot Camp experience, I don’t know if I would have had the courage to progress with acting. I’ve been armed with some great tools to help me take that leap. Thanks so much once again. I hope to continue the Brian Timoney training experience by being selected to attend the Ultimate Acting Programme, and I look forward to the possibility of meeting you, and meeting Brian and the team again. If however, I am not so fortunate to be selected, I would like to wish you all the very best for the future – I wish you all joy and success.
My sincere thanks and appreciation.
I just wanted to send you all a message to thank you for the fabulous experience I had during the bootcamp last weekend. I must admit that on Friday when I first arrived, I did wander whether I had made the right decision. By Sunday, I was sad to have to leave. It was the best experience of my entire life, teaching me not only great acting techniques but also what I am capable of and I now know without a single doubt in my mind that I am going to become an actress. Leaving the course, I felt liberated. Having found my true self, the course has left me feeling fulfilled. Thank you for the skills you have taught me – though I know this is just the beginning. I have a burning desire to learn more about method acting and would love the opportunity to do so with your guidance. I have applied for the Ultimate Acting Programme and hope to be considered and have the chance to work with your amazing team again in the future. With great thanks to you all,
Like anyone, I went into the course with doubts as to whether this was going to benefit me or not. However, the end result left me feeling excited, motivated, confident and very reassured about the art of Method Acting. Brian is clearly in his element with the Method Acting technique. His calm approach to helping you improve scenes, movement and dialogue is very effective. I felt that my rehearsed scenes just got better and better with Brian pushing me in the right direction. During my time there I met a lot of great personalities…where we all shared the same passion which made the working environment very relaxed and enjoyable.
I recommend that if anyone is given the opportunity to take part in the Boot Camp…GRAB IT! You will not be disappointed.
Hi, my name’s Damien Thomas, and I came on the Introduction to Method Acting Boot Camp to see whether or not this is something I’d like to pursue in the future – and I can say I’ve had the most amazing time this weekend. It’s been a roller coaster ride of emotions. It’s been absolutely phenomenal! Brian and Joe are brilliant. The rest of the class were fantastic – and I highly recommend this to anybody who wants to kick-start their acting career.
Hi, I’m Travis Coffmann, and I’m one of the students on the Brian Timoney Actor’s Studio for the three-day course – and it was absolutely amazing! Held at the 3 Mills Studio in London – and I’m just here to let everyone know that it’s an amazing course for anybody who’s serious about acting. So if you’ve have lots of experience or very little experience, this is the course for you. If you’re looking for longevity and you’re looking for characters that are meaningful and powerful and you believe in, and that are believable to any casting director or producer director, then this is the course is for you. There is now doubt about it. Do not put it off. I didn’t put it off – when I first found out about Brian Timoney’s Actors’ Studio, I thought, “Yes! I need to be here.” So I’ve just come to say, definitely – awesome course! Brian Timoney and his team – everybody; the teachers, Brian himself – and all of those exercises, it’s just absolutely outstanding and I am just bubbling with excitement to move forward in my career. So definitely join the Brian Timoney Actors’ Studio.
Hello, my name is Thomas. I’ve just had the best three days I think I’ve had in a very, very long time, at Brian Timoney’s three-day Boot Camp. I actually have a degree and a master’s degree, and I studied “The Method” – but it’s one thing studying it and it’s another thing actually doing it. So for all those people who are, I don’t know, milling around in their bedrooms constantly thinking, “Oh, I want to be an actor; I just, I don’t know – it’s for all those people who have talent, or those people who have loads of money and got helped out – people who know…” Come here. Come here and sort it out. Because it can happen. It’s in you – and just don’t doubt yourself anymore. Thank you.
Hi, my name is Mylene. I just finished a three-day Boot Camp with Brian Timoney. I didn’t really know what to expect when I came here; I was not really sure of what I wanted to do and everything. But it was really an eye-opening experience; really kind of like the people, the energy is like something you can’t really expect. So really, if you are
