Hear TK Student Ben Fievet talk about his experiences with the Meisner work, his community, and his commitment to excellence here at Terry Knickerbocker Studio.
It’s not worth it if you’re not going to put yourself 100% into this work. You gottta love what you’re doing. And if you do love what you’re doing, you’re going to do everything you can to be as good as you possible can every time you act. And that’s what I’m here to learn is not just to act, but to act well, and to be as good as I can when I’m doing this.
The people you work with, the people that you talk to in life, and your family, and friends, it brings an honesty out of you and that’s what you need when you’re acting is honesty and truth, and that’s at the core of Meisner, is truth.
I know that here I’ve found a home outside of home. People that I love to be with and to work with and that goes for the teachers as well as my class. I have three teachers at the moment, altogether…four! And I’m going to be adding another class very soon, and they’ve all been such an incredible help to this journey. I love coming into class everyday and I love working with them. I’m always excited to come these classes and when I ‘ve spent too much time away from the studio, say for some holiday, I’m yearning to come back by the end of it. I just love it here. And the community is a huge part of that. A really really important part of that. They have all become very important people in my life.
