WHAT, WHY, HOW & “YOU”

 
WHAT, WHY, HOW & “YOU”

 
The “ACTOR” Vs the “NON-ACTOR”

 
Why is it both parties think there is a difference in the “Journey” to become one or the other, when in fact there is only “One ” difference. The “WHAT,” the “WHY & HOW” must follow the same rules that govern any ‘Skill.”

 

 

A better “Person” makes a better “Actor,” a better “Actor” makes a better “Person.” Here’s “WHY & HOW.”
Things to “PRACTICE” for the ACTOR:
ELECTRICITY: (human circuitry)
CONSTRUCTION: (building scenes)
SEWING/KNITTING: (props /activities)
BALLET: (movement, hitting the mark)
SPORTS: ( training & repetition)
MUSIC; (emotional)
ART: (visual)
RELATIONSHIPS: (character study)
ANIMALS: (physical behavior nuances)
MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS: (props/ hands & fingers)

 
LAWS of TRAINING:
PATIENCE
This, Not That, Here, not There, Show the Right Way, Show the Wrong Way, then the Right Way again.
LAWS of LEARNING:
PATIENCE:
Explanation, Demonstration, Correction, Imitation, Repetition.
LAWS of DIRECTING & COACHING:
PATIENCE:
Knowledge, Recognize, Connect.
LAWS of PERFORMANCE/ LIFE:
IMPATIENCE:
Language: WHAT is Said
GESTURE: HOW it is Said
EXPRESSION: WHY it is Said
EARTHLY TALENT: the Absence of Fear
EARTHLY PASSION: The Intensity of Passion that Physically
moves toward a Goal.
The ACTOR & NON-ACTOR’S INTENTION:

 
Reach “HIGH,” Go “DEEP,” NEVER Wide, UP & DOWN Only.
Be a “SEQUOIA,” Not a Stubborn “OAK or “ELM.”

 
The “NON-ACTOR” (ninety percent of the time) “ACTS” in “REAL SCENES” on a daily basis, the “ACTOR,” on the other hand portrays the “NON- ACTOR,” “ACTING” in Scenes on a “Moment to Moment” basis.

 
“BOTH” must MASTER the “ART of MASKING.”
SO, you “NON-ACTORS,” do not think for for a moment, an ACTOR is any different than “YOU,” they just “Mastered the Skill ” of being “YOU.”
SO, you “ACTORS,” if “YOU” think your “Something Special,” because your an “ACTOR,” then…”YOUR” not “YOU.”
“Great Acting” like “Great Performances” bore’s the “Shit” out of me. A “Great performance” is watching some “poor shmuck” struggling to “survive” the “Shit” life throws at them.
SO, if you found this TOO long and Boring, then “YOU” think your “Something Special,” the first Law of Zen…”NOTHING SPECIAL.”
