real technique. real craft. real acting.
There have never been so many British actors in American TV & film projects as there are now. This is no coincidence. Casting directors, directors & producers constantly make the same comments with regards this phenomenon:
Preparation, Technique, Attitude
These attributes define acting in the UK. We're taught not to focus on ourselves and the mass media which promises fame and fortune and yet so seldom delivers. We're taught to focus on the work, the business, the craft. Study it. Absorb it. Respect it. Focus on it. Not on yourself.
Created by TJ Ramini and fellow Londoner Aml Ameen, NBS takes the mystisism and faux complexity out of what acting really is. So many actors are unsatisfied by what they are being "taught". Pretending to be a tree, talking about your mother, or spending hours doing mime techniques - this is not what an actor needs. Real skills that can be instantly and practically applied to every step of the process is.
