A Master Teacher's Book
The Actor Uncovered / Michael Howard
After more than 70 (!) years as a professional actor, director, and teacher, Michael Howard has written a book! When Ted Pugh was a young actor, Michael Howard was his acting teacher. Also, Ragnar taught for several years at Michael's own studio in NYC. Order this important and highly recommended book on the art of acting HERE.
New Video Classes / Ragnar
Ragnar has been haunted by an image urging him to make classes for imaginary actors. With the help of Martin D. Anderson (camera), Camille Litalien, Valorie Kissel, Travis Morris (crew) & Hyung Seok Jeon (edit) the imaginary classes have now become reality. For whom are those classes? Who knows? Maybe they are for you! Join for free & watch them HERE. Or simply imagine them!
