The Final Piece....


    I searched and I searched ... When it came, it came quiet suddenly, in a small old book, way out of print, that I bought in a second hand bookshop. It was there in front of me, exactly what I needed! Over the following weeks and months I modified the techniques for acting, I tried them, I tested them, and they worked!

    I could now create any emotional state truthfully in seconds, could interact honestly in the moment and could do so with either a primary emotion or one that a character may use as a barrier, AND I had the underlying theories, techniques and exercises to ensure that others could as well! Now there was no guesswork, I could dissect any moment of the Interaction, understand it AND use the information to maximum performance effect. It was all there. My acting improved out of sight


I Started to Teach


    In 1990 my partner and I started up a Performing Arts Studio and my teaching career stepped up a gear. I kept my groups small (I could do this because we owned the place) and the results were excellent. One of the BIG problems with conventional acting tuition is class size and time. Too little time, too many people! These were great times for me; I had the class size and duration that I wanted with students who were keen to learn. My students flew! We experimented with techniques, honed and refined them, put on performances. Finally, six years later, the administration got the better of me, we got rid of the building and my wife continued teaching dance in small halls while I began teaching for other studios.


Frustration struck again in another Guise


    That was when my frustrations re-surfaced. I no longer had control over class size or duration. It got me down, I had all these techniques that had taken me years to discover and finely tune and I couldn’t implement them. I kept with it for a few years, the peak of my frustration was teaching for a college that told me what I had to teach. I felt forced to teach 70-year-old acting techniques that should have been updated long, long ago.

    I left there and decided to coach only at those places where I could teach the way I wanted to. I found a well established private Performing Arts Studio (over 700 students) that would give me free reign. I headed up their acting and drama department and all was good. I taught there for three years before I felt that it was time to move on, time to start to fulfill more of my goals. I wanted to get some of my thoughts to the world. I wanted to start making my own films.

Time to make Movies

    I entered a film pitching competition where I became a finalist and won the Ambience Entertainment award. I wrote the screenplay that is currently in third draft. I teamed up with a producer and we started making short films. Six months later I was flat out working on projects, everything going well, except for another little niggle. I missed my students and I missed teaching.

    Big dilemma. If I go back to teaching I won’t have the time for my own films and projects, if I don’t teach a side of me will be left unfulfilled. That was when a good friend of mine suggested I create a Home Acting Course. I laughed, “you can’t learn acting at home!” He smiled and questioned me, ”Why not?” I stopped laughing. He was right, I had always been told that you couldn’t, but that was by people who had virtually told me the world was flat.

    And so I did. I put all of my thoughts, theories and techniques into a home course. A course that I believe will give you the very best acting foundation you could hope for. A foundation that you can build upon to evolve your own, unique way of working.

"Hi Robert. I am half way through module seven after reading the first six over and over to help it sit in and I've got to say its pretty deep. Did you study psychology or something like that because if you didn't your research has been amazing. When reading into it, it seems obvious why we act the way we act but without reading about it I wouldn't have thought about it, you know what I mean. Anyway it's very good and I will be sure to hold on to it forever."

    Do you ever watch TV shows and think to yourself, “I could do better than that!”? I’m not interested in training actors that just want to be on TV, what interests me is training actors to the pinnacle of their potential! Let’s face it we’ve all seen woeful performances on television, but hey, they look good on the cover of magazines! I’m not interested in your looks, not interested in who you’ve met, or who you know. I’m interested in you, JUST YOU, in guiding you along a revolutionary path towards becoming the absolute best actor that you can be. For the moment you need to keep the dream alive and feed it with information and training that will see your aspirations become realities. Aim high? There is no other way to aim!

    If you want to be elite I believe you need to cut through the mind games and go to the core, right down to the soul of human interaction. When you understand how, and why, you interact and POTENTIALLY how you could interact given a different history with a different environment, then you can tap into any character. Rather than ‘Band-Aid’, ‘Cut & Paste’, techniques for characters, The ‘Carne Method’ gives a broad base understanding of human behavior and the processes involved.


"Once you understand the principles underlying dynamic interaction, you can then create any character founded in the fundamental basic ‘Truths’ of moment to moment connection."


    This is more than a course on acting, it’s your own psychological and behavioral database, an open ended program to store, view, analyze and create characters. I believe that you should be empowered with a solid acting base founded in the understanding of who you are, how you deal with the world and how you can use your own ‘truth’ to bring another character to life.


The Carne Method Acting Course will give you the solid base that you need.


    I have spent literally twenty-five years and tens of thousands of dollars in training, researching, experimenting and trialing the rare information contained in this course. I only want people involved with this method who are serious in getting results, who genuinely believe that they can forge a successful acting career and who are prepared to work. People who are committed and passionate about acting and becoming an actor.

    You may pay up to four hundred dollars for a term, getting a couple of hours per week in a class with twenty students or more. I have NEVER found a class that could deliver a solid foundation for under $2,500.oo and even then many of them are flawed and lacking, with little or no reference material to fall back on.

    Compared to conventional courses this program is ridiculously inexpensive. You can go over this material 24/7 and it is a foundation that you will have forever, you can go back and review the information any time you want. It’s like having your own acting coach at home with you!


Here’s what the package contains




    Your personal copy of the new, First Edition International course of Schemactor's, “The Carne Method” – Complete Foundation Acting Course. This course comes in one large folder full of all the concepts, theories and techniques you will need as foundations to successfully master acting in the 21st century.

Home Acting Course Audio CD Study Course


I’ve found the best way to learn important information is to do more than just read it. By combining both the reading material and then listening to a specially designed set of lectures you can double the benefit from the original program. With the Audio Course you can listen to all the important points, theories, principles and ideas that make up the ‘Carne Method’ whenever you want. Listening to an extension of the program presented with passion is the perfect companion to the manuals. I recommend listening to it all the way through, after the relevant modules, then listen to it again a few more times while you’re doing other things. You could be sitting in the car or the train, on the way to work, (make use of that wasted time) on your run or walk, in the gym or just doing work at home. This kind of repetitive learning is the best & fastest way to reinforce the program in your brain. Think about it. When you learnt anything in school or at University did you just read a textbook? No, you listened to teachers and lecturers! Well that’s exactly what the Schemactor Audio Home-Study Course can do for you. It’s like having me right there, teaching you personally in your own home, office or car. It comes in an 8 CD collection and is seamlessly incorporated into your existing manual.

Just a few of the topic extensions discussed in the Audio CDs are;

* The fundamental scientific principle that will hugely boost your learning curve leaving other acting students standing still.

* A few Audition techniques that will make you really stand out from the crowd, doubling or tripling your chances of success.

* Why a sterile class environment can stall your creativity.

* Opening up your awareness to the situational intricacies of a characters behavior.

* The hidden acting truths to be found by observing very young children.

* Why a ‘bare room and an audience’ is romantic but rarely practical and often detrimental to your acting.

* The truth about dynamic prop’s.

* How to find the best agent for you!

* The extremely simple reason why some actors succeed and others fail and it has NOTHING to do with raw talent!  

And much, much MORE!

Why is this program so cheap?


    Originally this course sold for $497.oo (Still very inexpensive) But I found that students were procrastinating, I ended up talking at length to people and sending out follow on letters, taking up time and money. I’m still very busy on film projects and so I decided to cut the price to the absolute bare minimum that I could afford, to buy back my time. I also condensed the course, originally it came in two large folders with big resources for making notes. Condensing the course allowed me to cut production costs which I can pass on to you. All sales information was originally posted out by normal mail, a big cost that had to be factored into my course, by giving the information via the Internet, I save money, so you save money! By slashing my costs in order to cut the price to the absolute minimum, I hoped to take all price doubts out of your mind so you can focus purely on whether you really want a solid acting foundation based in moment-to-moment human interaction. THAT is the question! This way, with the low price, you save money, I save time. Time management is important in this industry and I wanted to make certain that all communications we have are fully focused on your development and career as an actor, not administration.


    As an added incentive I will also include a copy of – ‘Conventional Acting Techniques’ - Basics Module 1;
