The Four Pillars of Acting

Style

 

Emotion

 

Objective

 

Sense Memory

     What is the style of the story?
     The style does not change for any reason.
     All choices come from the type of style.
 
     Pick the emotion.
     Emotions are feelings large enough to change your life or destroy it.
     Always start with emotion first: feel... think... do...
 
     The objective is the conscious intent of the character.
     Always chose an objective that best serves the scene. Not objectives that are general and not what makes logical sense.
 
     Use sense memory everywhere possible.
     Sense memory is not enough to understand it intellectually, you must teach it to yourself.

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