Acting is Being Awake

  Awake, being present and mindfulness – they are all the same thing. And without it our art dies. Never before has our society been so preoccupied with the past or the future or what we might be missing out on. With the increasing popularity of the likes of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter the anxiety associated with the fear of missing out is on the rise. All of this takes us out of the present moment. With our fast paced living we are becoming less and less present in the moment. “We often cannot hear our own inner voice, the voice of our artist’s inspiration, above the static.” Julian Cameron – The Artist’s Way   Without these distractions, we are once again thrust into the sensory world. The present moment is one of the greatest tools for an actor.   Actor training has become more about training the mind of the actor to remain present and the discipline associated with being mindful to the moment. If an actor cannot demonstrate this kind of discipline over his/her mind then their art is lost. It is in the moment in which the spontaneity of the scene lives.   One of the first lessons my first acting teacher taught me was there are 3 types of actors: 1. The first swims on the surface with mask and snorkel observing the fish below. 2. The second dons scuba gear and bravely swims amongst the fish. 3. But the third type of actor swims down and breathes with the fish.   I love this analogy! It describes the mindfulness needed for a magical performance and...

The Cost of Investing in Your Dreams

A New Study Exposes ‘Class Ceiling’ That Deters Less Privileged Actors – see link below. Dreams do take a certain amount of investment. But is it our financial situation that really stops us or is it that we are afraid to invest in ourselves? How often do we use our financial situation as an excuse not to invest the goal? Can we see the value in investing in our goals (and therefore ourselves) and stop at nothing to move towards the goal? After all if we are not ready to invest in ourselves why should anyone else – why should a director, or producer, or production company for that matter. When it comes to investing in ourselves it should never be a matter of invest or do not invest. We should approach our goals with a “do-whatever-it-takes” attitude and look for that third option and ask instead “how can I make this happen?” Often all it takes is the decision to invest for the money to magically appear. Stand behind your talent and do whatever it takes. Click on the link below to find out more:...

Doing It Alone Is Expensive

Reach Out for Help and Invest in Your Training.   I have interviewed a number of aspiring actors and the common thread I have identified is the fear to invest 100% in the goal. Afraid they won’t make it, so they divide their focus between the goal and a back-up plan. If your goal was to be a doctor, you would focus 100% of your attention on becoming a doctor. Right? But, with actors, fear gets in the way. Perhaps because they have been told too often it is a difficult career to get into. Or, perhaps because they have not clearly defined the specific goal. The reason why is not important. In working with these aspiring actors, I have learnt: those that have backup plans need backup plans; and those who do not, do not need them because they achieve the goal. Their focus is 100% on the goal. Those who have no choice but to succeed as they have nothing else approach the work with a different mind frame – a more determined one. They are far more determined to identify the problem and find their own solutions to it. In order to achieve the dream you must not be afraid to invest in it and yourself. If you want to ensure you get there and want to get there quickly, then, like an athlete, you need to invest in training. And those who give over 100% to the training are the ones that really achieve. After all, what is the point of investing in the training if you are not going to take on board the...
