Learn Dustin's Method

Dustin Hoffman believes that every great character is already inside you—the hard part is learning to access them. In his first ever online class, the two-time Academy Award winning star of The Graduate, Tootsie, and Rain Man teaches you everything he's learned during his 50 year acting career.

Video Lessons

24 lessons, totaling 5+ hours, in which Dustin teaches you everything he wishes someone had taught him.

Class Workbook

Each lesson comes with notes, reading materials, and assignments to ensure you get the most out of Dustin's class.

Office Hours

Practice scenes with fellow students, and post videos to get feedback from the class (and possibly even Dustin himself!).

Lesson Plan

Hoffman aims to create a sense of awareness in his actors, both in front of and behind the camera, encouraging appreciation of self as well as of the people in the room.

The class makes the actor dig deep and if his words almost seem spiritual as he tells us to embrace human nature in order to make our acting natural.
