Gain the Freedom to Audition in Ways You’ve Always Wanted
It’s time to get back to the basics and focus on the fundamentals of good acting. It’s time to discover new things about yourself as an artist that will surprise and thrill you as you bring new levels of creativity to your work. It’s time to gain the freedom to express yourself in ways you’ve always wanted.
- TELLING the story to the fullest degree with:
The technical skills required for acting on film or television
- EVALUATING the situation, it’s importance to the character, the emotion of the character, and the feeling he or she has for the other person(s) in the scene with perfect understanding.
- DISCOVERING what’s under the surface by knowing emotionally and physically what has gone on before this moment. Locating the moment when everything changed. (When he gave up or sought revenge or fell in love.)
- KNOWING the details of the character’s history, which make up the fiber of this being. Where has he succeeded? Where has he failed? How do these areas affect him in his life now? What personal problems does this person have in his life? Example—can’t hold a job, picks the wrong mate, or resentful of friends who are doing well. Does he love wholeheartedly or carefully, is he suspicious, who does he trust?
- BRINGING YOUR VOICE to the work, not a generality or copy of someone else’s work. Your voice and your choices are!
- PUTTING THE AMOUNT OF WORK NEEDED into every scene to make it extraordinary. Knowing every time you perform a scene is an opportunity to bring your best and discover something wonderful about your talent and abliities.
- GOING BEYOND WHAT’S ON THE PAGE and finding more color, depth, and humor requires your original voice. So find the details of the character and his specific personality, his heart and soul, his joy, his pain.
Using these tools consistently will create more impact with your work and accelerate your ability to audition in a significant way! Gain the freedom to express yourself in ways you’ve always wanted.
