IAm Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I’m teaching an acting class. It’s for anyone, really, even beginners. AMA…
Here’s the intro video for my acting Class Project: https://bit.ly/3pGEMsY
Hello again, my dear Redditors. I’m back to do another one of these AMAs, so ask away...
I’m especially interested in any questions you have about acting. Less about the various glitz ＆ glamour Hollywood narrative, more about the art and the craft of it. (If I’m allowed to mention art and craft without sounding like a snob :)
The reason why is because over on HITRECORD (you know, the thing I’ve talked and posted about constantly for over a decade) we just launched a new learning service called Class Projects. It’s for anyone who's always been curious about trying something creative, but maybe never quite known how to get started. I’m actually teaching a couple of the classes, one on acting and one on screenwriting.
These aren’t just classes though, they’re Class Projects. So you won't just watch videos of me talking about these things, you’ll actually do it. Which is the best way to learn, if you ask me. I didn’t learn acting from books or lectures. I learned by just doing it a bunch.
In each lesson of a Class Project, you contribute a work in progress, and you get guaranteed feedback. By the end, you’ll have a finished piece of art you can share (or just keep to yourself if you want.) In the acting class, we’re performing monologues.
So if you’re curious to try it, whether you’ve never done it before, or you’ve already got skills, I think you’ll have fun with this, and probably (hopefully!) learn something.
I feel incredibly lucky to get to express myself through art and creativity a lot in my life. HITRECORD has always been my attempt to share that experience with other people in a positive way. And I think with Class Projects, we’ve done that better than we ever have before.
Oh — and as proof that I’m really the one doing this AMA (and it’s not HITRECORD’s social media team who often do a lot of posting on my behalf), I took this photo (scroll down a bit for proof): https://bit.ly/3dAjojh
