Art(ists), As Warriors!

Transcript Of Video:

“ ‘Why do I think art is important?’…

Because I think art says what nobody else is willing to say.

I think art speaks loudly in the face of doctrine to say:

‘Just because you are saying this is true, does not necessarly mean it is…’

I think art says:

‘We are not willing to be brainwashed…’

I think art says:

‘Yes, but…’

I think art challenges…

I think art progresses…

I think art looks at reality and sees when something is not working for the best and highest good for us as a collective…

And then it takes that reality and tries to transform it for the better…

And sometimes that means shaking things up…

Yeah, I think artists are some of the bravest people we know…

I think they are warriors…

I think they are the ones that emotionally go to war for mandkind…

I think they are the ones that emotionally…

And even spirtually…

Allow themselves to be a vessel or conduit of change…

A vessel of light for the collective…

‘What is the key component to all artistry?’…

I think compassion…

I think compassion allows us to understand the human condition in a way that does not allow us to judge it…

‘What is the greatest message I have for people?’…

I think it is to know yourSelf…

I think it is really about a discovery of learning who you are…

And really trying to take any kind of obstacles that Life has given you…

And tranform them to serve somehow…

To serve your Self…

To better your Self…

To better who you are…

To better your experience…

But also to help better humanity as a collective…

There is so much suffering in this world…

And we get so lost in greed…

And competition…

And fame…

And fortune…

And power…

But we forget that there is really one thing that matters…

And that is that we are all connected…

We have become so comfortable in our lovelessness…

That Love has come to become an endangered species…

But I think in order to really Love…

You have to understand its opposite sometimes…

You have to understand what Love is not…

You have to understand darkness…

From a primal level…

Because I think only until you are able to understand its opposite…

Can you really appreciate the truth of what Love is…

And then really pursue a mission to do good in the name of Love…

Otherwise it is all smoke and mirrors…

And I think…

We have plenty of that happening…”​~#MarioCampanaro ©️

 

 


Your Life Is The Answer To Your Work…

Transcript Of Video:

YOUR LIFE IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR WORK…

“I can guarantee you Life will be teaching you lessons better than I ever could…

But it is my job to help you take those experiences that you have learned…

That you have had in your Life…

And put that into your work by cultivating a craft that allows you to utilize those experiences…

To bring the skeleton of the material that you have been given to Life…

To allow you to breathe Life into them…

By allowing your instrument to BE THE ANSWER that you are looking for…

To allow you (in a safe ensemble/class environment)…

And to encourage you…

To keep asking yourself questions that deepen your involvement to the relationship to the circumstances that you are given…

And you would be surprised ‘that kind of self-discovery’…

You will be surprised by the self-journey you experience…

You will be surprised by what you were looking for already resides WITHIN YOU…

Because you are ALIVE!…”

About The Craft…

A Free One Hour Virtual Class

With Master Teachers Mario Campanaro & Jeffrey Glickman

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Master Teacher and friend, Jeffrey Glickman, (owner of the Actors Gym Studio, New York City and The Actors Studio, Stockholm), and had an amazing in-depth conversation about the incredible craft of acting.

We had an awesome time discussing:

-Our indivdual approaches to the work!

-How we work!

-Who has influenced the way we work!

-What has influenced the way we work!

-The importance of class!

-The objective of class!

-Why craft is so important!

-Why it is so crucial for a craft to be cultivated that works specifically for an individual actor!

-The many obstacles actors may face in their work and career!

-What we have found that has assisted actors in dissolving those obstacles that keep him or her from their greatest potential!

-What we have found that has supported the actor to keep growing, opening, and expanding in their work!

-All those confusing questions about ‘feelings and emotions’!

-What brings each moment of the work alive!

-How to bring each moment of the work alive!

-Life!

-And many more topics that have come up during our almost four decades of combined teaching actors across the globe!

You won’t want to miss this free one hour virtual class! ​

*This special event has been dedicated to all the amazing actors out there who love this art form and continue to fearlessly pursue their dreams!


Why Are You Doing It?…

Transcript Of Video:
“This is a question that every artist…

Every actor…

Has to ask themselves…

And you are not alone in that question…

It is a question that sometimes is a really difficult question to be honest with ourselves…

About why we are doing it?…

Are we doing this because we want to be rich and famous?…

And if that is the case…

Then there is no judgment in there…

But just know that that journey is going to be dependent upon receiving the validation through fame and fortune…

And that is a very bumpy/powerless journey…

But if you’re doing this with a heartfelt desire to tell stories…

Because you have something to say…

Or you have something to do…

That you know is going to help shift in consciousness towards a better tomorrow…

Or lift up just ONE person through you revealing the difficulties of the human condition…

Then that is a whole other story…

And you don’t give your power away…

You maintain your power…

Because you know YOU are that instrument of light that is revealing your Self through your work…

And that is where your power is…

THAT IS WHERE YOUR PURPOSE LIES!…”


Becoming The Perfect Actor (A Life Lesson)…

Transcript Of Video:

“You are a human being…

It is in your nature to make mistakes…

It is in your nature to fail…

It is in your nature to fall down…

And get messy…

And get dirty…

And get sloppy…

But I want you to understand something…

It is your desire to be so perfect in the work that is actually keeping you from doing the work that you are talking about wanting to do…

You need to start honoring your mistakes…

You need to start celebrating your failures…

You need to allow yourself to get messy…

Because you have to allow yourself to be human…

You cannot reach for this ‘ideal’ of what you think a ‘perfect’ actor is…

A perfect actor is one that endows their imperfections…

That understands it is not easy to be human…

A perfect actor is a person that understands that humans go through shit and have to try to overcome them (obstacles)…

And it hurts…

And it is messy…

And they got to get up…

And they got to limp through it…

And it is real…

You cannot be scared of that aspect of who you are…

You have to honor it!”
