Spend 10 Career Changing & Life Changing Days With Jim in Hawaii
The Actors Intensive Retreat in Hawaii is an incredible opportunity for current students or alumni of The Meisner Technique Studio to spend ten days in Hawaii advancing “The Business of Your Dream.” However, THE most valuable component of the experience deals with what Jarrett believes is THE most important ingredient to being a successful actor/artist – the mental and emotional aspect of being a dreamer.
Jarrett has spent twenty years evolving the curriculum so the key phrase is “intensive retreat” because every day is filled with empowering personal and professional teachings from sunrise to sunset.
The first five days are spent addressing the emotional, mental aspect of being an actor with a dream. That’s because to truly go after this as a career, you must be the healthiest version of yourself you’ve ever been. This means you must have a foundation that is rock solid. So the first half of the retreat is spent addressing your foundation, as well as your fears and insecurities about going after what has been called the most competitive profession on the planet.
Once these seeds are planted the “Intensive Retreat” shifts to the nuts and bolts of the business of being an actor. Topics include:
- The Game of Hollywood
- Creating Your Own Work in Hollywood
- Creating a Career and Living Outside of Hollywood
- The Agent/Manager Experience
- A Blueprint for Achieving Dreams
- The Audition Process – From Cold Readings to Callbacks
All of this information is invaluable in major markets like Los Angeles or New York. However, it’s priceless information for anyone choosing to live in a market like San Francisco, which requires an even more creative, aggressive approach to a career.
Additionally, this opportunity is so extraordinary because the Big Island of Hawaii is our classroom for ten days. This is also where Jim Jarrett lived for four years, so through his Ohana (extended family), he has amazing access to many remarkable properties, beaches, sacred swimming holes and waterfalls, and most importantly, beautiful friends and family who all share their aloha with our groups. All of this makes for a truly unforgettable aloha experience.
