A Breath Of Fresh Air.

Thank you Mr. Seymour! I’m a 19 year old actor in college and the way we’re taught as always confused me. Acting should be so complex. And your direction has lead me to become a much better artist. Thanks again! :)

Keeps my head in the Game!

I love how Jeffrey explains so well the way an actor should work and focus on being themselves rather than planning to do the right thing. Very refreshing material!

Jeff Seymour is Yoda...wise, true, and caring.

A friend told me about Jeff’s podcast a few weeks ago. I’ve listened to about 20 of them...I took his intensive this weekend. He is the “real” deal. I mean...he proves that there is a more truthful way to acting. You don’t have to be so precious, mental, methodical, or uncomfortable with the ‘work’.
