Specially offered to actors who have already studied with Mr. Burrus and therefore have first hand knowledge of his approach to material and the application of technique at the right time. Exceptions are experienced actors. Actors work first and Mr. Burrus will work second off of what the working actor presents. The focus will be on the importance of “You build a past to influence your acting in the present” principle.
„He knows the limitations of camera art for the actor and always teaches surprising keys to making it real in each moment….He’s an artist. He never stops learning, teaching new things, seeing the world anew. He is clarity personified.“ – Robin Levenson- (Quelle Backstage)
“A session with Ron is like going to church. I am not a bit religious but I can image that the feelings of calmness and reassurance I am left with after an hour with Ron is similar to sensation of walking about of a service. This is high praise! But I don’t believe there anyone better at breaking down a script. He just makes things so much simpler and that is all I ever need.” - Jane Levy ( “Shameless” – Tv-Series )
