As the Holidays remind some of us of child-like wonder and nostalgia, let’s risk putting sentimentality – which is real vulnerability – at the center of our work. . . . Sentiment isn’t something you strive to create, but by being honest and brave, a result might be to reawaken a person’s memories, nostalgia and sentimentality. But those are just fancy words for feeling. . . . Two beautiful films #drivemycar & #theworstpersonintheworld risk putting real emotion and real sentiment at the heart of their storytelling. . . . It’s easy to be “cool” or “clever” or “sarcastic” or “jaded” — let’s fight against those conceits which have become commonplace in our culture and leave us feeling no real feelings. Instead, let’s risk showing our true, open, hopeful hearts. . . . It might risk being (overly) sentimental but it’s ultimately more brave than pretending you have it all together and letting nothing or no one in.
What is your 2022 New Years Resolution? Do you want to start acting? If you’re dream has been to become an actor, what are you waiting for?

Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop worldwide has grown immensely over the past 25 years. The way to get started is by taking our Foundations Course, which isn’t an introduction to Acting, but rather, an introduction to the way we work. After that we place actors in On-Going Acting Classes, Mastery Acting Classes, and set up actors with Private Acting Coaching Sessions both Online and In-Person.
So whether you’re just starting out acting, been doing it for decades, or want to return to a forgotten passion, we are here for you. Our community of artists is so tight-knit we are confident that you’ll find a tribe you can appreciate.
Our Acting Classes range from morning or evening slots, 6 days a week. You can contact us if you have any questions about how to get started acting in 2022! AMAW is here for you. So, what’s your resolution going to be?
