The Jack Garfein Studio mission is to impart the technique that Jack Garfein has developed for acting and directing. The actor and director learn how to work on themselves, and how to grasp the inner meaning of the text in a play or screenplay.
Through preparation and rehearsals, the actor realizes how the character emerges spontaneously. This insight gives the actor the ability to create a life of the character independently, to use the stimulus of a good director, or to aid the director whose knowledge of acting is limited.
The director acquires the means to guide the creative actors. He or she also learns how to work with non-actors, who happen to have qualities that are right for the part, and provoke spontaneous reactions that can be captured on film.
