"The goal is to expand the self to encompass the character, not to contract the character to the limited self. And so, training in the theatre is all about opening and revealing. Creativity stems from freedom of thought, feeling and impulse."

The revolutionary approach to character emotional life employing the power of the actor’s imagination to create vibrant, lasting images and feelings. These images and feelings support, enliven, and deepen character choices. You experience the character’s experiences. Never lie again! Creates powerful, compelling performances.

Projections are a revolutionary way to do emotional homework employing the “alpha” level of consciousness to tap the deepest sources of creativity and the imagination. Vivid emotional “memories” are created during the meditational state of alpha. The richly detailed fantasies become the character’s autobiography.

When in character, the actor feels as if these projected experiences really happened, therefore, there is no lying and no pushing for reality – character history, circumstances and needs simply exist!

The craft of projections was been developed over a thirty-year period and is especially vital for camera work, where acting has to appear natural and unforced in close-up. Projections replaces problematic emotional homework systems as ”substitution,” “emotional recall,” and the written character biography.
