causes

     Actor thinks of causes. Director thinks of results.

     After take, after take...

     Value of the causes. Go back to what caused it. Go back to roots of it, emotion and objective.

     Hoping your talent will even make it better.

     Do not repeat yourself, variations will come out, don't try to copy it. Don't go back to what you did, when redoing a scene but do again what caused it (emotion and objective).

     How to do it again and again: what caused the behavior?

          When re-doing a scene, don't repeat what you just did, but go back to causes of it (the emotion and the objective,) then hoping your talent will even make it better.

          When doing a shot over, do not repeat yourself, but do again what caused it with the characters emotion and objective you have chosen.

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