body

 

     Hardest thing to learn is to leave your body alone.

     Approach your work with body relaxed so the emotion can take over.

      Actor is always in control, keep your skills. Great feeling, but stay in control of your instrument (your body). Actor has to learn to play the violin, figuratively. It's all about emotion.

1.

     Act with your whole body.

     Approach your work with body relaxed so the emotion can take over.

     Actor's best convince themselves that it is so, convince your body, that it is so.
     And feel free to try all different things. Act with your body, not just your feelings and your mind, let your body behave too.
     Don't get ready to do anything; your body will do it.
     Get loose, loosen your body.
     Get your body going with what you feel.
     Just don't act with voice, use whole body.
     Leave your body (talent) alone, it will do all the right things.
     Make all your plans, you've told your body, don't act carefully.
     Scene act with your whole body, the feelings are going, use your voice, don't bury dialogue trying to be natural. Use colors, don't mumble.
     When you act, you have to act not just with your will, not just with your thoughts and feelings, you have to act with your whole body.

     Turn your body over to the character. If you can't do that you can't act.

  1. Act with your whole body, the feelings are going, use your voice and don't bury dialogue trying to be natural. Use color, don't mumble. How to make it special, how to illuminate it. As an actor be a chef, be decorative.

  2. Body remembers, does it again and again.

  3. Change your manner because of words. Don't do it unless new information or new event, why do actors do things: fear using body, emotions fear; actors keep sitting down.

  4. Chose emotion and objective, your body will behave in the character.

  5. Condition reflex = Teach your body.

  6. Don't get ready to do anything, your body will do it.

  7. Don't prepare yourself to do something. Acting: ragged edge, don't smooth out things. Bring to work must get rid of. Against mental acting. Allow the body to do what it knows.

  8. Everything is happening inside of people, inner difficulties.

  9. Just don't act with voice, but use whole body.

  10. Leave your body (talent) alone, it will do all the right things.

  11. Modern acting: talk with body before you talk with voice.

  12. Radio with bodies: No, no.

  13. Rub your nose in it, do it wrong, teach the body.

  14. Speak with your body before you speak.

  15. Tell your body to do something, that's acting.

  16. Think objective. The body knows what to do.

  17. Think your objective, leave your body alone.

  18. What does your body do, your voice?

  19. What is the telling of it with your bodies.

  20. What my body remembers?

  21. What do I feel? Run the emotion once, body will take over. Then just think objective. It's not emotion, emotion, emotion...

  22. When you do things like feeling emotion and thinking objective you don't even have to think about doing it. It all becomes subliminal in your acting. Don't be conscious of all the principles of acting once you learn them. Trust your body, your body can do many things for you. Your body remembers.

  23. You can't have your mouth doing one thing and your body doing another. Your body has to do what your objective is doing, what your emotion is doing. Movies are about behavior. We are watching people physically behave. And we are reading into it all kinds of meaning.

  24. Your weapon is your body.

  1. Understanding of humor: lesson in using body, sense of gesture, some are funny, others aren't.

"In the end, it can't look like acting."
