| How long you've been a student? Since
What is the teaching and Eric Stone specifically as a teacher
have done for you to contribute to your growth as an actor, as an
artist and as a human being?
It's taught me what I don't know such as to look deeper into myself
as a creative person. The need to let go and have fun. To be more
childlike and forget the ego and control behavior that doesn't work.
To begin to understand what working from the inside-out vs. outside-in
makes for better results
How has your life changed as a result of the teaching?
I look at so much, so much differently. More aware of my surroundings
and my responses. More aliveness. Having more fun with little things.
Talk about your personal experience of this approach to acting.
It's been very challenging. It has required much more of me that
I thought it would. It really is more than just "tricks of
the trade". It's heart training not head training, if that
What are your accomplishments?
A much clearer understanding of the craft. As a beginner no work
and it will come. I know when the time comes I'l be ready for it.
Could you describe to a newcomer what the experience of being
a student of Eric Stone is is like
Fasten your seatbelt, it could be a bumpy ride. And you're in the
hands of an honest, unique and very dedicated man who has your true
interests at heart. If you can't handle truth and honest feedback
or if you're just looking for ego strokes you're in the wrong place.
If you really want to learn acting look no further.
Anything else you'd like to add:
I've learned the importance of building a sand castle.
Letter from Dean after Weekend Intensive Workshop:
A few more words from Dean ....
For this and you I am Thankful. Still standing as a small man with
a little shovel at the bottom of a big mountain I'm more and more
confident of taking bigger scoops as the days go by. Often confused
and bewildered I always come back to the things you instilled in
my mind and from that the courage to move ahead. For that too I'm
Thankful. But most of all I'm Thankful for having had you in my
life. A man who shared his passion, concern and commitment and taught
me above all to deeply respect this craft and to never take this
work for granted. From the Heart. Dean
