with Adam Christopher Veasman
Eric Morris’s No Acting Please is the book that “put it all together” for Johnny Depp. Jack Nicholson wrote the forward for it and it is a resource used in colleges, universities, acting schools and by actors around the world. The Eric Morris System of Experiential Acting is a complete and comprehensive system that teaches the actor to work organically from a place of Being and personal truth, eliminating the separation between actor and character. After studying personally with Eric Morris, Adam Christopher Veasman has been given a unique endorsement by Eric to teach this experiential acting method-based system here to Chicago.
