Over 30 years of active teaching make Jerry Coyle’s classes a memorable experience for advanced actors as well as beginners. Based on the Sanford Meisner Technique, he offers practical tools and a framework for scene study, casting and partner work. Combining a practical approach to camera work and shooting conditions with a profound knowledge of human nature, Jerry Coyle provides useful insight for any actor and actress.

Jerry Coyle has been teaching film and TV acting at several renowned acting schools throughout the U.S.A., Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, among them the Weist-Barron School for Television & Film in New York City, the Film Acting School Cologne, The Film & TV School /Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) and others. As an actor, he appeared in several films, such as “Extinction GMO Chronicles” and “The Good Shepherd”, as well as on TV and on stage.

The workshop is designed for trained actors and directors, who have worked on stage and in film. The goal is to attain organic, natural behavior in each scene. There is "no acting “ on camera.

It is based on sensory work developed by Sanford Meisner. The method is to create a supportive and positive environment between the director and the actor. Two or three minutes before each scene is filmed, the director allows the actors to share in a dialogue, based on what they are feeling and seeing, etc. They share honest emotions with each other, freeing them to follow their impulses and instincts and leading them to successful, organic scenes.
