So many times, we as actors forget the play of acting. You go into class and everything‰Ûªs like, ‰ÛÏGreat work‰Û: like everything‰Ûªs work. At The Barrow Group, it really came from this other perspective: ‰ÛÏThis is play.‰Û That was a really great time. I would say that was my most significant training.

The Barrow Group was really the institution that taught me how to act. I worked with the best teachers, who taught me why less is really more.

I had a great experience with the Barrow Group‰Ûªs Filmmaking for Actors class. The class helped me to jump start my filmmaking ‰Û÷career‰Ûª with everything from writing all the way to shooting and editing. One of the biggest takeaways for me was what I learned about screenwriting; having always wanted to write this class provided me with the foundations to take ideas and turn them into fully thought out scripts. It also provided me with experience in every aspect of being on set to create a film; giving me the opportunity to do everything from being a boom operator, to script supervisor, to DP, to director. Over the course of 12 weeks I obtained the abilities to start with an idea, turn that into a screenplay and then bring it to life as an original short film. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is serious about creating film.

The class was an introduction to acting - learning about how to create a set (staging) & how to be more conversational and realistic when being in a scene. The class was large (20 people?) so there was time for everyone to work on two scenes and one monologue. I think a smaller class would have been more beneficial but I did learn from watching other people as well as participating. I would consider this a very beginning acting course.

Fantastic experience, far beyond my expectations. Ron is a seasoned instructor who quickly got us comfortable with one another, and set up an environment that supported risk-taking, and encouraged learning by doing. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to test the waters of acting.

It was a great class and I learned a lot. The teacher was very knowledgeable and shared many helpful and valuable tips for beginners. Also, the atmosphere of class was absolutely non-judgmental and focused on learning and progress. I would recommend this class to anyone - but be prepared to have some time available during the week to work a bit on rehearsal and read a few plays. What I regret is that some other participants were less involved and didn't show up several times.
