It's weird, you - I mean I, almost don't want to talk about it, for fear that- that will make it loose its power! V simple, v subtle but v powerful, I think! Felt kind of giddy after watching it this morning. Once it's there, it's there or something now. + in no contrived way -I did a lot of positive stuff since watching part 1. Feel like I've opened the blinds a bit.
...It's pretty amazing you would put something like that up on line
All the best
Thanks for your work with us in the Factory last week.
I thought I would let you know I used some things that you taught us the next day in an audition. Tomorrow I will be on my first professional film job filming a scene with the wonderful Juliette Binoche.
Thanks again for you help and keep up the great work. It is a real gift to those of us starting out.

Now you have to read the letter Stephen sent me after he shot the movie - to me this what it is all about. x Nick My favourite Testimonials-for-nick-dunning.
"Thank you, Nick Dunning for giving us so much useful information today at The Factory. Tip of the Tongue, Peripheral Vision, and Moving and Changing the Tone of Your Inner Critic, to name a few, are tools I will use from now on on auditions, and how to stay focused on set, as well. Nick is an artist who is proof this process works, it is attainable by any actor, regardless of their experience."

I found Nick to be very engaging, and generous in his words. He was extremely encouraging yet straight talking about the craft of acting. A joy to listen to.
I attended a talk with Nick Dunning and I found I learned a lot from listening to him speaking about his experiences as an actor. He made everyone feel very comfortable and had plenty of time to answer any questions the group had. He taught us a couple of his own tricks that he uses to focus himself on set which was very beneficial and took time out to talk about the auditioning process as well. The time spent talking about auditioning was very useful as we had a lot of questions on that topic and he helped us with anything we wanted to know about.
"I found Nick Dunning to be a very witty and intelligent speaker. He spoke succintly about how having respect and diligence for the craft reaps rewards for the actor. We all came away having learnt something!"
Hi Laura, I found the session with Nick to be really helpful. He was really open and forthcoming and it's always great to hear the techniques that another actor uses to get into the zone, how they prepare for an audition and a role. It's an invaluable opportunity to sit in a room with an experiencd actor and have your questions answered.
Paddy Gibson "The talk from Nick was great! Really clear and learnt a lot."

”Nick provides a lot of good tips in a concise style. It’s an easy and fast read and I’m sure that’s a plus for everyone these days. I thought that only “teasers” would be provided. You know…where a long lead-in is provided only to build-up to “You’ll find all the secrets on doing this on page XX of my special report!” But to my pleasant surprise, Nick gives away some good info for free!Susan.
