“BLIND DATE” (HANDS V’s EYES)

  “BLIND DATE” (Hands V’s Eyes)   Several times a week a “Busy Struggling Actor” goes on a “Blind Date” (Audition) and several times a week, most “FUCK it UP.” How? They “LIE.”   When I go on an Audition, I look forward to the time spent in the “Waiting Room,” there is where the Read More …

“THINKING” (the Enemy Within)

  “THINKING” (The Enemy Within)   There it is…the ” Voice of the Ego,” the “Influencer,” and it never “Shuts Up.” I call it the “Choice Maker.” It chooses our “Paths,” some “Green & Fragrant,” some “Brown & Dark,” some “Rocky & Unpredictable.” It is the “Narrator” of our “Past, Present and Future,” it is Read More …

WHAT’S not being TAUGHT

  “WHAT is NOT being TAUGHT”   The THREE “SINS…”   …the ACTOR” brings with them to the camera are the same “Three Things” they possess as a “Normal Human Being,” if not, they would be considered “Not Normal,” maybe even “Insane.”   “ANTICIPATION” becomes a “SIN” if the Actor “Anticipates” but their Character “Does Read More …

INVENTING V’s CREATING

  “INVENTING” V’s “CREATING”   “CREATING is ‘Discovering’ the ‘Memory of the Potential’ in Something’ that does not yet Exist.” It is of the “Spiritual Realm.”   “INVENTING is ‘Discovering an ‘IDEA’ of Something.” It is of the “Temporal Realm.” “TECHNOLOGY” comes from the “Evolution of the Mind,” a greater understanding that we have access Read More …

STILLNESS & SILENCE

“ART” is not an IDEA, it is a “MEMORY.”   Before every “Practice,” the “ACTOR/ARTIST” must enter the “Corridor of MEDITATION,” TAPPING INTO THE “Universal Storehouse,” the “Cosmic Realm” of “GENIUS.”   Practicing with “WORDS and MOVEMENT” bonds One to the “Temporal World,” of “Earthly Ideas.” It is “STILLNESS” and “SILENCE” that opens the door Read More …

MANKIND EXIST SECULAR & SPIRITUAL WORLDS

  “MANKIND” exist in Two Worlds: “SECULAR & SPIRITUAL” “SECULAR” (outer world) “SPIRITUAL” (inner world)   Most try to live with “One Foot in Both Worlds,” when one accepts both “SECULAR & SPIRITUAL,” one exists with Two Feet in “Both Worlds.” We are (thanks to the outer world) rapidly beginning to forget how to live Read More …

“HANGING ON” V’s “LETTING GO”

  “HANGING ON” V’s “LETTING GO”   “Blue Mountain Unmoved, White Cloud comes and goes.” a ZEN expression   For the ACTOR, ON an AUDITION, “White Cloud” always trump’s “Blue Mountain.”   “EXPERIENCE” Act’s as a Defense, Protection, making one “Cautious, Unadventurous and Boring.”   “INEXPERIENCE” brings “Freshness,” it projects “Humility,” it makes one, “The Read More …

“A USED TO BE WANNABE”

  The “USED TO BE WANNABE…”   …is Not the result of “Quitting,” it is the tragedy of “Quitting on One’s Self.” If the “Struggling Actor” becomes one, here is the reason why “The fewer ‘Negative Messages’ one get’s from ‘FAMILY, FRIENDS & LOVED ONES, the ‘MORE’ they can withstand from the Outside.”   Strangers Read More …

” A TOILET…”

    “A TOILET…”   …is the best way I can explain an “AUDITION,” what they (casting) want (words), they try to “flush out”of (actor), what they need (behavior), goes “down the drain.”   There are “two factors” responsible for this, the ‘Casting’ “LISTENS,” the ‘Director’ “WATCHES.” But, the fault lies with the “Auditioned” and Read More …
