Discover What Excites You

In order to start making big, bold choices you need to first determine what excites and amazes you about the character. Ask yourself, what is the story that resonates with you about this character? What makes you the best person to tell the story because you understand it better than any one else? Make the most of what you have seen or experienced. What is the story…

Lets Get Clear On The Dream

People need to be repeatedly reminded of their goals and reinforced in their efforts in order to progress. a) Choose the Dream / Goal You need to determine your focus so you can clearly see when you are off track, when an opportunity is right for you to pursue, and so you have clarity with regards to the people you want to bring on board to help you achieve your dream. The dream is the reason why you are doing it. It motivates you to keep moving forward. So before anything else you must get specific, very specific, about the dream. Most people, when you ask them to get specific about what they really want, feel uncomfortable discussing their goals/dreams or writing them down and in some cases feel that their dreams are stupid. You need to get comfortable and very specific. Your goal will guide you in making the right choices. It will keep you on track. It will motivate you when the work gets tough. b) Have a clear vision of what it looks like Write it up, or create a visual image of it by drawing it or even collaging it (where you cut out images from magazines that represent what you really want). c) Refer to it regularly Refer to it on a regular basis. As your relationship with your goal/dream develops, so does your determination to achieve it. As you begin to acknowledge how important it is to you, you begin to adopt that “do whatever it takes attitude”. The more you see the dream, the more achievable it seems. The dream keeps you...

Mastering Auditions

Understand the value you bring before you start Often when new actors walk into an audition they believe they are there to please the panel. To show them that they are exactly what the panel wants them to be. Whatever that is! They believe they need to show how easy they are to get along with, what a great sense of humor they have and what an all round nice guy/gal they are. Afraid that the casting panel may not like certain attributes about their personality, the new auditionee “waters down” who they are and in fact almost completely loses their personality altogether. Remember it is your personality just as much as mastery of the craft that will get you the job. Your personality IS the draw card. Hiding your personality from the casting panel leaves the panel unsure as to what you will bring to the production. And besides, how can you be what you think they may want when you do not know what that is. Sometimes they aren’t really clear on that either. You are not a mind reader. Stand in your own power and confidently make them aware of who you are. They will thank you for it. It makes their job so much easier. So how can you ensure you bring YOU to the audition? a) Before the audition, sit down and list all the ways that you are right for this job. Identify attributes in your personality that you think the production team would benefit from by having you on board. This may mean some research into the production team and their mission...
