About the lesson
I am Paul J Riley - you can call me PJ. I have been teaching acting for over 35 years. I teach a process I developed called The Character Core. It helps the actor conceive of and develop an organic image of the character he/she is undertaking to produce. I use visualization and improvisation as well as a series of exercises I created to that end.
My process is used by working professional actors as a quick and decisive tool to achieve instant recognition of and ability to transform into a character at rehearsals, auditions, performance, in a few seconds and is one of the quickest and safest processes I know.
There is little if any lack of clarity for this process becomes as natural to the actor as breathing and can also serve real life problems that might be blocking continuity in life as well as on stage. I consider myself a creative life & art coach therefore and can serve the actor on many complex levels.
I am an accredited coach, director, playwright and dramaturge. Of course I began as an actor myself so i am quite aware of the pitfalls the world of theatre and film can offer. However, for any serious minded and goal oriented student with a desire to perform to their fullest potential I believe I can be of help.
About Paula J (PJ)
I have no idea of how many students but many indeed. I am not concerned with titles, accomplishments (other than growth) as a lot of students are misinformed about what true "success" is.
I believe one should be happy - therefor one should only pursue their dreams not what others want for them or what they think they should become - but only who they are and have the courage to study a steady course for life and work.
