Masterclass Acting for the Camera & Audition Training

How to stay relaxed, focused and authentic in front of camera and in auditions to deliver a believable and powerful performance.

On a filmset is often much at stake, and the actor is under tremendous pressure. The RefocusMethod will make sure you stay focused and relaxed.

It is a system to develop a “sixth sense” for identifying and letting go of tension in the body, particularly in the face. ReFocusMethod also helps the actor to stay focused on the objective and the listening; to take away ‘the nonsense’ and revealing your true self and power. The result is a believable and authentic performance, in a very short time of preparation.

Where does Refocussed Method come from?

The origin of Refocus Method was created by Andris Blekte in the 1960s in Sweden. Andris taught his technique at the National Acting Academy for about 30 years. Many of the Swedish actors we see in series like “Wallander”, ”The girl with the dragon tatoo”, The Bridge and films like “As it is in Heaven” where students of Andris Blekte.

Andris Blekte personally trained Tony Grahn at the National Acting Academy in Sweden 1990/91. In 1998 Tony started to teach this technique at The Actor Centre in London. Since then he has developed the method further based on his experiences in giving Master classes in Sweden, England and in Holland.

Tony’s workshop was simple and effective without demanding psychological backflips. All the participants were pleasantly surprised when, as if from nowhere, their performances gained a new depth and truthfulness. - Eli Thorn
