Welcome to – The Foundation Intensive.
Understand the Foundation of Human Behavior
in Los Angeles, CA.
In this 3-day workshop, learn the causation of human behavior. Students are introduced to the use of the 8 Essential Tools: Stakes, Obstacles, Through Line, Who Am I, Subtext, Substitution, Previous Circumstances, and Driving Force. It is through these Tools that students are shown the equation that causes a character/human being into existence. The Intensive breaks down the Tools in a way no other class offers. It goes to great lengths and depths to provide a deeper understanding and practical application of the Tools.
Multiple scenes from movies are used to illustrate where the Tools are in place and where they are missing. The Foundation Intensive is intended to be repeated year after year, as each time one partakes in it, something new is received, downloaded and available to deepen one’s own practice.
This intensive is required for all acting students as it is the foundation of the Studios’ teachings. In Ms. Silvers’ Masters Acting Class, students are coached using the Tools, which is why it is necessary to take the Intensive and to develop an understanding of how the Tools work.
