Relationship: Teacher (1.0)
You sure they’re a teacher?
Welcome to 21st Century Hollywood – A Webinar Series presented by Kevin E. West. Due to where the “formerly respected” profession of acting instruction has gone…we needed to cover this relationship in two parts. You see a long time ago in a galaxy far far away…acting coaches taught acting because it was an intrinsic love and passion and all they cared about was you learning. Since the mid-90s it has slowly deteriorated (in L.A.) into something about 35% of the people do just cuz they themselves can’t get an acting job…or because they’re realty frustrated directors…or, and worst of all, they really just have a lot of personal issues and rather than getting healthy themselves…they’d rather create a therapy class to “tell others what is wrong with them” instead of seeing a therapist. This makes their class feel like therapy. We’re not trying to be a cynic but you must be very careful with whom you trust your craft and WHY you are there. At the end of the day, it is all about what your instrument learned, and can easily implement. All else is BS.
