How It Works

Step 1: Breakthrough Alignment Session

To kick off your time with the Academy, YOU and Laura Mac will meet one on one with her signature Breakthrough Alignment session and dive into identifying the areas of your craft and career that need the most focus. Share your experiences, discuss goals, and begin to uncover how you, as a unique individual, will benefit your market and the industry.

  From there, Laura will place you into your powerhouse team, where you will find the connection and support you need to stay motivated and nurture your confidence every step of the way.

Step 2: The Foundations Courses 

Full access to the Foundations courses that act as the blueprint for our work through the Academy. Go through each lesson at your own pace and apply them to your craft and career with the help of your team.

Step 3: Powerhouse Team Meetings

Each week, you’ll meet with your team twice:

1. To Talk – Check in with your team, set goals for the week ahead, share challenges and find the resources and support you need to move you forward. 

2. To Work – Bring a self tape audition or rehearsal to the group and examine your process. Develop your critical eye and learn to both give and get constructive feedback that you can apply directly your acting and audition process.  

PLUS! Join the entire Academy once a month for Reading Day! Elevate your craft through studying the greats: Playwrights, Screenwriters, Acting theory. Articles on human behaviour, relationships, societal forces, family dynamics, the psyche  – Read and learn together. As actors, our work is only as deep as our understanding of the human experience.

The Laura Mac Method taught me what to work on and how to work on it. I gained confidence in my audition prep that took away the guesswork and allowed me to book multiple roles.
