Hello Fellow Filmmakers and Theater professionals!

If you’re a film or theater director, actor or filmmaker looking for workshop where you make serious progress achieving your creative and professional goals in the very important area of DIRECTING ACTORS, join us. Goodman Directing and Acting Studio offers intensive workshops for film and theater directors. This is a comprehensive course with practical and real life examples, and scientific approach. The director will learn how to bring out the best possible performance from their actors and create a memorable and everlasting work of art. Our workshops and book, “The Art of Directing Actors,” by Ernest Goodman presents directing actors as a practical psychology: the art of managing human behavior.
