The ULTTIMATE Do-It Yourself Guide to Creating and Controlling your Facial Expressions.

Your Face is the first place they look to see what you are feeling and thinking


The DIYX is the ULTIMATE Emotion Training Membership. This memberships combines the ease and flexibility of the do-it yourself courses with the personal attention you get with a live class. 

Like the DIY-BASIC and DIY-PLUS, the lessons drip out weekly, however, you can move at the regular course speed or slow it all down. Like the other DIY Memberships, It includes all 3 Modules of the Emotional Alignment Course: Emotion Screen Test, Building Inner and Outer Truth and Emotion Building as well as the Office Hours and Community. But that's where the similarity ends.   

The DIYX also includes the Workout Course and Workout Library with over 100 additional instructive video lessons. But what separates it from the other two memberships is the once a month LIVE CLASS with John. The LIVE class is where get to work with me on something that has been covered in the course  or learn something new. These LIVE classes explore the face and beyond to include all types of nonverbal communication. 

Another feature that makes this Membership unique is 25 additional Teaching Videos. These are videos of previous classes.  Each video lesson is there to help you navigate the course and get things done. Before each section, you watch as I work the lesson with other students. Then it will your turn.  

In case you get stuck, have any questions or need some encouragement, you don't have to wait until class time. You can always reach me  via email or through the COMMUNITY.  

If you are someone who likes a little more personal attention while you of to work on your own, the DIYX Membership is the one for you.

"John Sudol's coaching is paramount for any actor who is studying to be in front of the camera. With John's workshops and book, I feel even more informed and creative, knowing I can use not only dialogue and physical movements, but facial muscles to better convey a thought and emotion."

"As a director and teacher It's easy for me to recognize good acting. As an actor there's a different story. When working in film and television in particular, I sometimes felt very confused. I completely understood the scene and thought I was doing what the director had asked of me. But I would just get the same note again and again. After working with John I realized that my fear of overacting had led to me not using my face at all in my work. This course was so valuable to me that I will highly recommend John to my clients."

"John Sudol's work is rapidly becoming a constant tool in my actor toolbar. I am rethinking how I use emotional triggers in my work. What John is teaching allows me to use all my stage training, while giving casting directors, screenwriters and directors what they want to see on the small screen. The intimacy of my work for the small and silver screens is growing and my confidence is growing with it. Check him out! "
