The Gately/Poole Acting Conservatory is a unique school which has created the The Acting Intensives as the foundation of its training program. It is based upon the Meisner Technique with additional innovations developed by Richard Poole and Kathryn Gately. This approach to training was designed to allow actors, who have already begun to work professionally, to continue their careers while strengthing their skills and growth as artists.
Students of Richard Poole and Kathryn Gately were filmed on location in Chicago, the Chicago Suburbs, and western Indiana. The video clips were used to network with agents, casting directors, and producers in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. 32 scenes were shot with 30 actors, and 40 hours of footage was edited down to 2 hours of material. Elkhorn productions was hired to film the actors. It was an extraordinary experience for the actors and a major asset in launching their careers.
