Learn how to juggle three things:
How to do exercise.
| We all know what words mean. Get a deck of
3"x5" cards with one
emotion written on each. Do one emotion for two minutes, then go to
the next emotion card. Do this while cleaning house, etc. Not
necessarily in public. First, take in air until you feel a click in the
back of your throat as your air passage closes. Now, let the air out
slowly and along with it the emotion you have from the card. Do this a
number of times and each time let out even more noises as you exhale. It's
all condition reflex.
It has to be there for you on the set. Any emotion can then be done
at any moment. You are training the body.
- All about emotion (feeling), not the mind.
- Be true to the style of
the film. When in doubt, do nothing just feel and think.
- Resemble life: don't answer
all answers all up front. Feel emotion, do objective. Let talent take over. Less the better.
- Feelings large enough to
destroy you. Can not act without an emotion, more important than words,
even the objective.
When you do things like
feeling emotion and
thinking objective you don't even have to think about
doing it. It all becomes
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.
"In the end, it
can't look like acting."
