The Scene Study/Meisner Technique for Film & TV offered at The Conservatory at The NYPAA is composed of 8 classes over four weeks. These scene study classes based on the Meisner technique allow students to acquire significant knowledge in a four-week program helping students understand and dismantle barriers they’ve built up. These barriers can get in the way of mastering the emotional landscape of the characters you play.
Dedication is an absolute must. High standards apply to the program. Students will learn the fundamentals of the Meisner Technique as well as how to improve their personal craft before putting it into practice by working on specific scenes. Our training challenges students to discover their own originality and freedom.
