Seminars and Workshops for Actors

It’s time to stop “Acting”!

Why? When acting is pretending

it’s not an authentic  depiction of a character.

Mark said the things I always wanted to hear as an actor.

There’s magic in the room when Mark Travis works with actors.   I was riveted.

Kim Adelman, Author, “Making it Big in Shorts”

Working with Mark Travis has been the most truly pivotal experience for me as a writer, director and actor.  His incredible understanding of the human condition and how to effectively bring an actor to their truest and fullest performance with his Technique is truly astounding and groundbreaking.  And his ability to teach directors how to do this as well is phenomenal.  He cracked open everything for me from the first moment I met him as a student and heard him speak 12 years ago and through working with him as a director and actor.  I really cannot express his brilliance in words.  You MUST experience it!

Tina Cardinale, Director, Actor

It’s fascinating to watch Mark Travis wield his technique with actors and non-actors alike. Even more fascinating was to be directed by him. He talked through me to the character he helped me inhabit. It was as if he confidently guided me out of my own monkey mind, insecurities and over-analysis through to an into-character experience.
