New to acting? Replace your fear with confidence. In this safe space, you’ll learn how to take risks, trust yourself, and to be guided by the relationship, not the story or the character. The Haber Phrasing™ is introduced.
For students with no experience or training and those who are transitioning from modeling, athletics, dancing and even the corporate world into acting.
Expand your imagination. Learn the importance of discovering specifics to create a character and how they help you focus on the other person instead of yourself. Get out of your head and into the relationship. More challenging scripts are explored.
For students with some training (college, etc.) and experience such as commercials, student films and shorts.
Dig deeper into your core. Using specifics and imagination, discover more complex, challenging material while still taking risks and living in the moment (and your body). Lean into the discomfort (and excitement) of the unknown as we explore both the creative and practical challenges the actor faces in the casting office. Continue to explore the Haber Phrasing™.
For professional working actors with prior training and experience including co-stars, leads in indies, and professional theater experience.
A truly transformative experience. This weekend takes you on a journey as a human being well as an actor. Margie lovingly and thoroughly teaches you how to bring the best of you into a creative experience. She guides you away from any technical approach into a world of instinctually creating a specific life. You’ll learn how use your imagination to create scenes that are not in the script so you can fully own the character. There’s no more fear of performing when you live each life fully. The Haber Phrasing™ is explored thoroughly to support relationship and need and to help you live in the unknown.
Instead of trying impress the casting director, you’ll find your power again. Through the use of specifics, you’ll create full characters for auditioning, cold reading and on set roles in theater, film and TV. Get out of your safe zone and risk to be seen.
“Since Margie’s Masterclass I have booked roles on multiple tv shows including “New Girl”, “Prototype” & “Mistress” and in the films, “How to be a Latin Lover” starring Kristen Bell, Rob Lowe and Raquel Welch and George Clooney’s “Suburbicon”. More callbacks than ever too” Jeffrey Basham 2016
For professional working actors – guest stars, reccurring, series regulars, and feature films.
Explore beyond the cold read and strengthen what you learned in the intensive. Deeper creative explorations include: more detailed script breakdown to support creating more complex characters, working with multiple scenes and full scripts, preparing for cold reads, callbacks and shoots…all while still creating characters quickly, specifically, and thoroughly. Practical explorations may include the challenges of audition and on set experiences.
Only available to students who have taken an intensive at the studio. Each level has it’s own ongoing classes and prep you to move through the studio program to Margie’s Master Weekend. Ongoing classes continue after her weekend as well.
Margie teaches her “Live the Life” Session all over the world. An introduction to her philosophy and audition technique, this 3-hour session teaches actors how to breakdown a script instinctively and physically, rather than intellectually. Margie’s 10-step method and Haber Phrasing™ is shared with actors of all levels of experience. Learn specifically how to take the Haber Philosophy, “Stop Acting and Live the Life of the Person,” into your auditions. The tools you learn for auditioning will be easily applied to your prepared work in film, television, commercials, and theatre. Whether you plan to continue your studies at home or come to our studio in Los Angeles, Margie’s philosophy is universal. This session gives actors an affordable taste of our on-camera intensive classes. If you’re interested in bringing Margie to your town, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
