I WILL NEVER ADMIT TO BEING A BAD ACTOR. With that said and out of the way, I will admit that I think my technique needs some work. Especially considering the fact that I have an improv audition coming up. You must forgive me though, this last show was by far one of the hardest many of us had to do. When you do a show that follows around a group of individuals trapped in the north tower of the world trade center, you do not want to fuck up. You want to hit everything, every point spot on. Thankfully, I did not screw up. Where I had trouble was figuring out where to really make my character stand out outside of an apparently quite confusing scene where I am coaching a girls soccer team. This scene may have been confusing because it was a flashback that forced the audience to temporarily remove themselves from the towers and place themselves in the memory of my character. This was done simply to show that my character had a life outside of the towers, that he was not just a cold, hard statistic.I think what this experience has taught me is that I need to work on my emotional reaction. What may communicate well in ones brain may not translate well to the rest of the world or be entirely believable. Like I said though, I will not admit to being a bad actor. So now I look to improve. Strangely enough, the things I need to do in order to improve as an actor are things that we all should actively do to improve ourselves. My director has always said that a dull mind and a dull body make up a dull actor. So today I vow that from now on, I will read more, I will write more, I will do that exercise I keep on talking about, and i will do something I have not had the time to do in so long........ People watch.
Something else I need to do, start doing daily improv exersices...........

As long as you keep trying, you'll improve. I'm sure discipline is a big part of it so you need to stay focused on your goals. Good luck hun.

Oh, I know it can be nerve racking to get up in front of a lot of people and perform. I don't miss that at all from my college days. Good luck and I hope everything works out for ya!

Just keep on working at it. like anything in life the more you do something the more second nature it becomes to you.
