2022 Method Acting One Year Course Master The Art With Peter Kalos

Course Ratings:
“I approached someone recently to raise some money for a film I wanted to make, and he said to me, ‘I don t promise anything, but I deliver.’ I liked that; it stayed with me. 
I can “promise” you many things to try and get you to sign up to classes- but most of those things are bait to lure people in things like “you‘ll meet casting agents” – “we’ll introduce you to Industry professionals etc.” I see that all the time. 
I’m not going to promise you shit- but here’s what I’m going to tell you- I teach acting skill and craft- period! When you’re out there looking for work – it all comes down to what you know NOT intellectually, but what you have in your body… that’s takes time, dedication and consistency- we’re aiming for that ‘actor’s body.’ I want you to FAIL! I want you to give me everything you’ve got, all your ideas to get on stage and try them and fail, again and again, so we see where you’re at, then with the skills you’ll learn, I want YOU to apply them so you see how you can get further. It’s not about YOU doing what “I” tell you- it’s about YOU creating your path- I give you the tools. And I train thinking actors who can see things that others can’t, and then they can deliver their ideas above that. That’s what makes a career. 
LAB actors have that mindset.” 
Peter Kalos

What you'll learn
  • RELAXATION: I’ll guide you all through an entire session of relaxation so you all understand it. (Lee Strasberg influence)
  • SENSORY WORK: The same skill used by all the actors at the Actor’s Studio in America. You will go through ALL the exercises from the coffee cup to shaving, makeup, rain, private moments, personal objects and many more. (Lee Strasberg influence)
  • CHARACTER WORK: You will pick a character from a photograph and develop them over a year- how they eat, sleep, walk, dress, think, talk etc. This is pure Stella Adler!
  • DREAM EXERCISE: How to use your dreams as an actor!
  • IMPROV: You will learn how to use this SKILL as an actor PROOPERLY_ not just sit there being a “machine gun mouth”, which is what most actors do. Improv is NOT about the words and being clever; there’s so much more skill to it. (Most of this is Meisner based.)
  • HELP WITH AUDITIONS: Many times when actors get auditions- we either meet before class or work on audition during the course (no extra charge for this)
  • WRITE YOUR OWN FILMS: I try and push all my actors to make sure they create their own work- there isn’t enough work here in AU to sustain a career; you have to get out there and create your own work. Most of the past LAB actors are out there now working together and making a film- at the end of the day… THATS why you join an acting school- TO ACT! So this will help put all your newfound knowledge to use.
  • INVITED TO OUR BIG WEEKS: 2-3 times a year we do a “BIG WEEK” where all the actors (past and present ) turn up and do a 4-hour class every day for a week; just to take the work that extra notch up! You’ll be exhausted at the end of each one of those weeks.
Why Study at The Lab
For those of you that don’t know me or the LAB- I studied in Los Angeles with Stella Adler herself for about three years and then went on to study at the Lee Strasberg Inst. for eight years! I have worked with amazing actors from DeNiro, Martin landau, Eli Wallach, Mark Wahlberg, Barry Primus and many more- this isn’t a job or a hobby for me, this is my life- I’ve done nothing but work in this field for the past 35 years. I create actors- it’s what I do well. At the LAB, we have trained some skilled actors who are out there working on some fantastic projects. Actors like Nicole Chamoun, Jacqui Purvis, Claude Jabbour, Rohan Mirchandaney, and many more have spent several years on the LAB’S stage… and now they’re actors with a craft and a skill! That’s an actor!
