‘in conversation’ INTERVIEWS

Pulling from the many friends, colleagues and professional connections he has made over the years in Los Angeles, Howard hosts a regular ‘In Conversation’ series of interviews with leading agents, managers, casting directors, producers, publicists and actors. The interviews are candid, intimate, off-the-cuff and full of practical, useful advice and industry anecdotes. We shall be updating this library on a regular basis, but to watch each ‘In Conversation’ streamed live, as it happens from LA please like the Howard Fine Acting Studio Los Angeles Facebook page or look for announcements on the Howard Fine Acting Studio Australia Facebook page.

Lecture excerpts


Eight Steps Lecture Excerpts

Below are three excerpts from Howard Fine’s famous Eight Steps Lecture. The complete lecture lasts for over two hours and forms the corner stone of the award-winning techniques we champion. These excerpts provide an insight in to the fundamental philosophies that underpin the work we do and The Studio’s approach to acting. Howard frequently delivers his lecture in person and a version of it features in a number of our primary classes. These recordings were made at a packed theatre in Melbourne as Howard delivered his lecture in a public event for the first time in Australia.
