MasterClass remains on fire. In recent months, the new online course provider has announced the development of online courses taught by leading figures in their fields. And certainly some names you’ll recognize: Martin Scorsese on FilmmakingHerbie Hancock on JazzDr. Jane Goodall on the EnvironmentDavid Mamet on Dramatic WritingSteve Martin on Comedy, Ron Howard on Directing and Werner Herzog on Filmmaking too. Now add this to the list: Helen Mirren on Acting:

Writes MasterClass:

Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Tony winner Helen Mirren is one of the greatest actresses of our time. In her first online class, she discusses the dualism that is core to her method: the necessity for mastering technique (craft) and then letting go so that your imagination can take over (art). Learn how to break down a script, research characters, and master techniques so you can transcend them to find freedom in every role.

The course just opened for enrollment. Priced at $90, the course features 28 video lessons where Mirren “brings you behind the scenes to show you the secrets of her acting technique.” And a downloadable workbook that features supplemental materials and lesson recaps.
