I have been finding it hard to find such inspiration these days, and John’s class really is a reminder that the work doesn’t have to come from any specific place – it can come from where you are in the moment, and an openness to where that may lead you. And that that fuel can take many different forms. He encourages his students to open their creative landscapes; to be curious, instead of fixated. He questions and investigates, and invites you to embrace your own artistic curiosity and power. His sessions are filled with guidance that is full of play and possibility, and an understanding that like all creative endeavours, the work is beautifully ongoing.

After almost twenty years of working in theatre, I was still new to the film and TV world. I was under the impression that TV and film acting class would be about learning which side of my face is my “good” side, or that my “hit” is 40 year old ethnic cleaning lady, but John made me feel right at home by focusing on the work. He took me back to the basics of good acting. His method is beautifully balanced by a passionate, relaxed and honest instruction. I felt comfortable asking questions and enjoyed John’s personal anecdotal responses. He made me think. He challenged me.
