What works? What skills do you need to improve upon.
As we move back to auditions here are some more pilots that are current for you ready. We will be setting up mock auditions for one of them. Not sure which one yet.
I see how bad you want to improve your on camera skills. I think this week there has been some nice growth. Let's keep it going....
Here's some homework to help you practice over the 2 weeks.
- Your homework is to identify what worked in your video. 3 things at least.
- Then to Tape and post both scenes back to back. Scene 1 and 2. you have 2 weeks to do it. Its' fine to use a iphone. Work in groups. Upload from a computer to youtube. Unlisted. Send me the links.
- Also watch everyone else work. Share your 1. thing you learn from each person and 1 thing they could improve upon in your email to me.
The terms to use when you are identifying what worked should ONLY be what comes from what we have worked on. Opening beat, closing beat, objective, obstacles, listening, beats and transitions, history & personalization. Moment to moment.
OVERALL.... is the person living the story of the scene. Relating to the environment,
Here's the link to my recording.

The work is coming along!!!
Please prepare as if you are coming to an audition. You must pick an early scene. One of the first scenes that your character has. Not the later scenes.
Women may prepare Oliva or Quinn.
Men may prepare Steven, Harrison, or Sully.
Make sure to analyze your scene and do all the back story work. You must use the dialogue exactly as written. You may use the script during the audition. Be very familiar with it.
