STAR POWER establishes a new wave of Acting. It speaks to current and relevant issues that creative Actors are grappling with: How do I "BE" authentic and respond from my truth and still BE the character? How do I respond spontaneously and still fulfill the Director's vision? How do I bring my rich inner imaginative world out to be visible in the material world? What is the the"IT" factor?
It's STAR POWER
STAR POWER engages the Actor in new possibilities, helping them develop their Authentic Self and define their Individual Signature. As an acting coach, it is Ms. Shurin's job to transform good actors into "brilliant" ones. This is a book about Ms Shurin's new discoveries on how to create an Individual Signature for the actor. The combination of "Individual Signature," becoming that "brilliant actor" and having the the "commitment" to become a star is the missing link.
Actors of all levels of experience will find interesting interviews from industry professionals and fellow Actors confirming these principles.
STAR POWER works. It is the future of acting.
Ms. Shurin has recently found that these same principles benefit anyone in any profession:
attorneys, doctors, salespeople, parents, teachers, students, politicians and more. She hopes these life-altering principles will be used for the betterment of humanity.
