GROUNDWORK ENGINEER LEVEL

Our Groundwork Engineer Level Program is an intensive 16 week course designed to:

THE MACRO METHOD (8 Weeks)

  • Learn to break down a script efficiently – We teach you exactly what to do when you get a script with our formulas (especially if you only have 5, 15 or 30 minutes.)
  • Uncover how you can give the creative team exactly what they’re looking for.
  • Enjoy an actual step-by-step process for your auditions.
  • Empower you to think like the person hiring you (the director!) so you can BOOK.
  • Free your natural instincts so you can stand out with what makes you, YOU! Step onto ANY set with bold confidence to DELIVER!!!

THE CHAKRA APPROACH® (8 Weeks)

  • Deepen your emotional truth so you never have to fake an emotion ever again!
  • Release the emotional blocks holding you back from booking YOUR ROLES!
  • Focus on emotional intelligence to become a more intuitive actor and human being.
  • Reveal your intuitive energy to yield effective, compelling performances take after take.
  • Lean so far into your brand, you’re irresistible to casting, and no one else can compare!

I’M BLOWN AWAY BY THE LEVEL OF TALENT I GET TO WORK WITH.

“A great teacher can really inspire you and help shape your future. I was lucky enough to have that. But once you’re no longer in school, that kind of goes away. At least it had for me, until I discovered About the Work Actors Studio, where I’m currently studying. I first met Murisa through a Conservatory workshop at SAG-AFTRA and was immediately drawn to her energy and passion for the craft. She communicates with actors in a way that they truly understand constantly finds ways to push our boundaries, challenge us and bring out our best work. I’m blown away by the level of talent I get to work with. These artists continue to raise the bar and inspire me and to witness each person learn and grow every week is truly a gift. It’s so refreshing to be back in a community of creative people and have a mentor that sees something in me and continues to motivate and inspire me.”

 ABOUT  THE WORK IS ONE OF THE MOST SACRED SPACES I’VE ACTED IN.

“Coaches who are emotionally present, creative and constructive in their collaboration with actors are the ones I seek to work with and learn from. I’ve studied at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and worked with Linklater, Meisner and Strasberg acting teachers over the past 10 years. When I met Murisa 5 years ago, I was in complete humble gratitude of her intuitive, constructive and compassionate energy. Murisa Harba is a true “Empath.” She constantly challenges everyone from the level they’re working at and EVERYONE is respected and treated with kindness. About the Work is one of the most sacred spaces I’ve acted in. Some of the most powerful acting experiences I’ve ever had have come out of this class. There is no competition at About the Work, only love and craft!”
