Recent Feedback for Gerry’s Workshop:
“The workshop blew my mind!! Such an effective approach to acting, some of it so simple you’d never think of it, some of it difficult to get my head around it and some of it just plain weird! But it all works! Can’t wait for the next one. He’s a fucking genius!! ” L. Cooney
“Thank you so much for the Gerry Grennell Masterclass. I feel that the course has stepped me up not one but a few levels in my approach to acting. I think the best way to describe it is Gerry shows you how the bring yourself and truth to the camera. He also has some great advice to help you handle situations. It’s a practical approach that teaches you what the camera sees, what it wants, and what the audience perceive.” F. Phelan
“My mind is still buzzing from the knowledge I have gained from the Gerry Grennell Masterclass. How I approach my script work is forever changed. As an actor I feel so much more confident breaking down scripts but also going into auditions. Listening to Gerry delve into the psychological factors of the human condition is fascinating. If you are serious about your craft and want to improve first chance you get GO SEE THIS MAN. In football terms he is in the premier league. Thanks a mill Gerry, cheers Bow Street.” C. O’Connell
“Working with Gerry’s methods has completely transformed my relationship and approach to acting. It has enabled me to have real control of my performances and has already led to more work. I learnt more in 2 days with Gerry, than in 2 years from Drama School.” S. Cash
” I really loved the 2 days, Gerry was fantastic, it’s a great workshop not only for acting but I found it great on a deeper level. It dealt with yourself and how to improve your ability of staying present. In life and on set of course. The language that he uses throughout the workshop really makes the ideas he has and what he believes in easy to understand. They are simple tips and simple ideas that he explores but really makes you think! Hard to say everything about the two days and hard to explain. But I loved it, and if he is doing another one I’ll be back!” AJ. Rowan
” I thoroughly enjoyed the Masterclass with Gerry Grennell. I would have loved more days with him simply because there is so much information to take in and spending more time on certain areas would have been better. I would most certainly take up another class with him when he comes back and will definitely be recommending him to others also because the man is a genius who really explains the best ways to approach this industry and your craft. You cannot get enough of what he says and you are just engrossed from the beginning. Couldn’t speak any higher of Gerry and it was money well spent and I look forward to his return.” C. Finan
” I just loved the Gerry Grennell Masterclass. He was a wealth of knowledge from owning the camera to common mistakes actors make in front of the camera. Also valuable was how to use your inner child to enhance your characters. Explaining the difference between Communication and Expressive Communication and how to apply which and how to find them, Personal Moments and how the camera seeks to capture them and how to stay in the moment. What our self critic does to our acting and how our eyes work and how to use them to make your character compelling. How you cannot go back and recreate an exact moment. There were so many other valuable pieces of information and solutions and exercises to be comfortable and and interesting in your auditions and performances. I will definitely go to his other classes, he is the best!! ” L. Thurman
“From the first minute to the last of Gerry’s masterclass I was completely blown away by his methods, he makes the most incredible techniques so easy to grasp for any actor lucky enough to share a room with him. Not only does he put the actor in touch with their instrument in a way I have never come across before, he also imparts invaluable professional knowledge, from the highest levels of the industry. He has changed the way I approach scripts for life. I had previously attended a 30 minute talk of his at a networking event, it stuck with me for two years. So when I saw the two day masterclass come up I jumped at the chance. If you have the opportunity just do it, there is no other drama coach that will teach you to mold your body & mind to realise the truth in the way he does. Quite simply – you will not find a class like this anywhere else. ” S. Coffey
