Stella Adler: Camera Acting Intensive with Ron Burrus

Teaching both in LA and NYC, Ron Burrus spent many years studying the teaching alongside Stella Adler and is known to be the greatest living exponent of her work. Her techniques have been studied by actors such as Robert De Niro, Martin Sheen, Roy Scheider, Vincent D’Onofrio, Mark Ruffalo, Warren Beatty, Salma Hayek, Michael Imperioli, Christoph Waltz, Benicio del Toro and Marlon Brando.
Working with film scripts, the actor will first audition for the role and then prepare a scene with a partner from the material provided. All work by the actor is filmed and from the viewing of the tape, adjustments are made either to be brought back or done on the spot. Advanced actors who have their own way of preparing material are best suited for this workshop.

“A session with Ron is like going to church. I am not a bit religious but I can image that the feelings of calmness and reassurance I am left with after an hour with Ron is similar to sensation of walking about of a service. This is high praise! But I don’t believe there anyone better at breaking down a script. He just makes things so much simpler and that is all I ever need.” Jane Levy ( “Shameless” – Tv-Series )

“He knows the limitations of camera art for the actor and always teaches surprising keys to making it real in each moment….He’s an artist. He never stops learning, teaching new things, seeing the world anew. He is clarity personified.”Robin Levenson /Quelle Backstage

“Ich hatte Ron Burrus an der Stella Adler Academy als Lehrer während meiner Ausbildung. Ein Lehrer der Extraklasse und ein toller Mensch!”Maximilian Nepomuk Allgeier

“From his rich experience and his exceptional personality, Ron Burrus has taught us many things about acting but also about how to live as an actor or simply as a human being. Ron showed us how we could improve our acting skills through a daily life work and a different way of living. His training was very concrete and led us on every steps of our work ; from how to work on a character and on a script, to how to understand and act a scene.
If you participate in this workshop, you will need a sharp pen and a thick notebook because you won’t want to miss any of his tips !”
Nagisa Morimoto

“Ron is one of the best acting teachers I have ever worked with. I was amazed and thrilled by how much I came away with in such a short period of time. I have a whole new understanding of character development and script breakdown, it was a revelation for me and I easily filled a notebook with notes worth their weight in gold. His energy, enthusiasm, playfulness and support are inspiring and I cannot wait for the next opportunity to work with him.“ Leanne Rivers
