The Dangerously Powerful 4 Learning Acting Exercises At Home

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 01:58:00 +0000

Prabhas- Great Telugu actor of Baahubali who learned recommended acting at homeDue to my personal reasons, I can't join an acting school or a coach. Any solution?I belong to a middle-class family and can't afford Mumbai's expensive schools. Can you help?I have been cheated by an acting school at Old MHADA, Andheri-west, Mumbai with a promise to give me a break in the films. Now, I want to learn acting at home. Are there some exercises?--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Acting Alone And PracticeI’ve had a number of emails recently about acting students who are in a situation where they can’t be in a class for various reasons - whether it’s financial, location, or other, and want to do exercises to keep themselves in the work.First of all, I would emphasize strongly how important it is to have a good teacher or coach or a good acting school (where a teacher gives personal attention) to work with. One guy that observes you, identifies your emotional issues, physical movements and has the expertise to help you break your shortcomings and spends time with you.My Highly Recommended Exercises1. Three phone Calls The sceneIn this exercise, you are in your scene, either you are getting ready to leave or have come back from outside. You will make or receive three phone calls. Each call needs to be very different, with a different subject and tone, to three different people. You are in these phone calls while in the “doing”, meaning you are doing something at home during the call. Imagine and create the other person, and hear their side of the conversation. Get totally involved yourself in the call, hear them, respond to them, and complete the call, while doing your other work (like arranging something, changing clothes, dusting etc). As you complete the call you continue your activity and the second call, either one you make or receive. A second phone call with another person with a different life…. Then a third call. When finished, you leave or go back to your activity.Notes: Your other people that you can create should be A. some close one with whom you have a genuine emotional relationship like a love mate, friend, mother; B. Maybe some stranger or a creditor with whom you may enter into a conflict. Listen to them. Take your time. Make them important, and be creative. Find something that you can be really interesting. Do this while “in the doing something at home or a place” or getting ready to go somewhere. This exercise is about specifics, activity, and living truthfully in the moment. Review the calls – are you being real or “too dramatic”? truthful? fake? Give the phone calls contrast. These should be people you have a very different emotional point of view about. Show your range of emotions, actions, and reactions. Don’t make them all the same. Keep each call to no more than 2 minutes. Practice, time yourself, and rehearse with yourself.Example:I get home and am getting ready for bed, and see that I have a message. I read the message; it’s my mother… again. I return the call. She’s complaining about something. I feel guilty and irritated when I speak to her. I talk with her for a bit and hang up….. I continue to get ready and then call a woman I’m interested in, I’m quite nervous, I like her and don’t know if she likes me. I chat her up a bit and then ask her out Friday night…..I continue and make a third call. It’s to a friend who has to give my money back which I loaned him long back. You can practice this by yourself, with a friend, even shoot on mobile video camera yourself and review it. Again, the best is a good “eye” watching you and giving notes and feedback is best.Do this once a week if you are self-acting.2. Film An Imaginary Audition:Set-up a camera, cell phone, or webcam to capture your performanceFind and prepare a monologue ( say about 10-15 lines from a storybook, newspaper or just create a scene with someone), get ready as you would for an auditionCho[...]

Want To Join Big List Of Losers? Don't Get Monologue | 14 Tips

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 01:21:00 +0000

feedsharkI don't know how to prepare a monolog for auditions and failing. Can you help?Is a bad monolog or no monolog the reason of rejections in auditions?How important is for an actor to prepare a monolog?--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------How to select a monolog?What monolog should I use for my audition?How to prepare Hindi monolog?How long should be a monolog?What precautions should I take for preparing monolog?What Is a Monologue?If you have a friend or relative who likes to hear himself talk, you already know what a monologue is.  It is an uninterrupted, one-sided conversation in which a person — a college professor, your drunk friend at a wedding anniversary party— addresses a specific audience. Dating back to ancient Greek drama, where they played an essential role, monologues remain the main feature of plays and films. Monologues provide character development, give an explanation, or identify key themes.Nowadays it's a trend with casting directors to ask an actor appearing for audition to give a monologFollow these winning tips when choosing oneFinding good audition material seems to be a pain in the ass for many actors. I began to fully appreciate how actors kill selection chances. Many actors simply choose bad audition monologs for themselves. The reality is, if you are going to audition for films and TV (also especially for theater), monologs are going to be required of you fairly regularly. You can help yourself immensely if you follow some simple tips.1. Know your "type" and be realistic about it.A good way of discovering this to ask other actor friends, your acting coach and people in the industry. If you choose a piece that is something you’d "LIKE to do" as opposed to something that truly suits you, you are unlikely to stand out among the competition- there will be plenty of others who are type same casting type, better looking and more experienced or better prepared for the same audition                  2. Know your age range Again, be realistic about this and ask friends, your acting coach or people in the industry for honest opinions about your screen age then stick to that age range. For example, if your screen age is 23 to 30 and if you prepare or select a monolog spoken by 60 years old man, well then you know it would be absolutely out of the place and the casting directors would notice instantly.3. Enter the room with confidenceIf hands are offered, shake them. Look the auditors in the eyes during introductions i. Introduce yourself and let them know what piece you are doing and who the source/s. Remember to smile and show off your confidence.4. Short And SweetA monolog that’s between 1 minute to 2 minutes is great. More than that is beginning to push it too much. A monolog audition should work to spark the auditor’s imagination, not be an attempt to cram everything you can do with a one piece of text.5. ImagineSimply put, your monolog should express as if you are talking something to your scene partner whether partner present to absent. In this way, every monolog is actually a dialogue, a give and take between you and a silent, invisible scene partner.6. Don't tell just a storyThis is related to #2. So often actors create monologs which simply tell a story or reflect on a memory. These pieces become inactive 99% of the time and highlight the matter rather than you.7. Avoid pieces that are full of violence, sex or offensive languageRemember that an audition is, after all, a job interview. Often the casting director doesn't know anything about you apart from what we see in the audition. "A lot of offensive language or pieces that contain descriptions of graphic violent or sexual acts are just in bad taste at an audition8. Entertain auditioners No one in the industry wants to watch an actor working really hard to impress them with their "acting" especially if the piece is boring or mediocre. Choose a monolo[...]

Rejected! You're Crap Like 100 Others | Can't Create A Character

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 02:43:00 +0000

Jim Carrey the world's greatest comedian getting repeated rejections before successWhy so many actors including me rejected in auditions?I' quitting. Getting repeated rejections in auditions. Any solution?My school never taught me how to avoid repeated audition failure and get a role. Can You help?How to become film and TV serial actor by being selected in auditions?Answering These 7 simple questions and preparing well can make you succeed in auditions  The other side is that an actor who puts in the time and energy will definitely have a greater understanding of their character and their personal acting technique.Take them, learn them, and think about them. That is why Stanislavski asked them.There are so many different acting techniques that finding a process that works for you can be confusing and difficult. Ironically, most acting books and teachers use similar principles based on Stanislavski's system. This is because Constantin Stanislavski is considered, even today as 'The father of modern acting' and every acting technique created in the current era continues to get influenced by 'Father Stan.' For young actors, I'm giving an understanding of Stanislavski’s 7 questions which will be an invaluable foundation upon which to build a 'character' the actor intends to play.As A Character AskWho am I?Start with the basics and then fill in the gaps with your imagination. Pick apart the script to find out what type of person your character is; what they look like, what they believe, how others describe them and so on. Think about your character’s past and the significant events/people that influenced them and made them who they are in the script.Where am I?The script will usually tell you where you are but the important thing for an actor is to consider how the character feels about the place they are in. Characters act differently in public than they do in private. People move differently when they are cold vs. when they are too hot. The space your character occupies can determine how they behave during a scene.What time is it?Year, season, month, day, and time of day should all be described. Then, think about how the specific time of the play changes the character’s action. If it’s night, looks or says in the upper regions of Himachal Pradesh in extreme winter, physical reactions and dialog delivery may change.What do I want?This is a character’s primary motivation for everything they do in a scene. All actions should be executed with the goal of getting what you want from the other characters in the scene. This is also called a character’s objective.Why do I want it?There must be a driving force behind your objectives on stage and on film screen and that is your justification. We all had reasons for doing what we do and characters are no different. Give your character a convincing reason for acting and you automatically generate high stakes which lead to tension.How will I get what I want?Imagine. Use your dialogue, movements, and gestures to try to influence the other characters to give you what you want i.e. accomplish your objective. This is also called a character’s tactic. If one tactic fails, try a new one and see if that works.What must I overcome to get what I want?There may be always something in the script stopping characters from achieving their objective so as to create a drama. Usually, there is someone or something in the outside world impeding a character’s advancement and also some internal conflict with which they struggle. Find what it/they are and fight against them with the scene. This is also called a character’s obstacle.Source[...]

Why Actors Should Play Lottery

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 02:05:00 +0000

An actor's dreams and imaginationWhy am I not becoming a good actor?I'm getting roles but not becoming a Bollywood star. What's the reason?I can't imagine playing different types of characters' What to do?When I play a script in auditions, I become tense and look false. Why and what to do?SolutionDevelop The Power Of Imagination, Dream, And Practice Characters At HomeBuy Lottery Ticket, Imagine Becoming Rich And Famous--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Why Playing Lottery Made Me A Good Actor?Hi,I'm an International Award-Winning Character Actor (Guiana 1838), and an acting coachPage From My Life DiaryAs an aspiring actor a few years back.... "Like many millions of other people, I bought a lottery ticket on Monday. With a jackpot worth of Rs.10 Crores, I couldn’t resist. But as I handed over that cash, I felt shame. I felt as if I'm being looked by scornful eyes and judged. In my head, I heard the voices of dozens of friends and family shouting at me, “You just threw that money away!” They told me how ridiculous I was being, how insanely long the odds of winning are and to not get my hopes up. They are familiar voices. They pop up regularly in my life, in moments when I find myself beginning to fantasize and daydream. They are the voices of reason. Of the rational. Of control. And they are trying to ruin my acting. I have spent most of my life fighting with my mind’s weird strict direction to through life out of control. It is extremely easy for me to think negatively, to turn the smallest discomfort into as if I'm gonna die. In my head, a failed effort easily turns into a fear and a doom. An unexpected knock on the door quickly escalates into a devil entering. My mind likes to just run away. I’m constantly fighting against it because, most of the time, it leads into some terrible direction so I have to do everything in my power to bring myself back to reality just to calm myself down. This escapism away from realizing my dreams to become a good actor is nothing but a myth.  Less often, I will find myself fantasizing about an opportunity that comes my way to be a successful actor. When a big audition comes along, a life-changing kind of project-I will find myself drifting away into a fantasy, a colorful futureI imagine hearing how proud people are of meI imagine traveling to incredible places to film my scenes.I imagine the crew and the director gave me a standing ovation on my performance in a scene shotI imagine my beautiful female co-stars congratulating me after a shotI imagine depositing Rs. 10 Lakhs in my bank accountMy vacations to incredible tourist places in India and abroad and staying Taj or Hilton And when I get caught up, I hear those voices telling me to get ahold of myself, to calm down, to come back to my safe and routine life. The voices, the voices of therapists and friends and family, voices of those who have my best interest in mind, try to restore control.The world trains us to lead a less complicated and a safe life. We get messages to calm down and not get worked up all the time. The life teaches us to keep our heads down and follows the logical, rational path. Perhaps this may be correct. It would be a tough world if everyone was constantly in contact with the extreme things that could happen in every moment. It would be equally impossible to go to work if we followed every fantasy and dream. So we tame our imagination. But we actors cannot. We actors must learn to tap into the depth of our imaginations in order to fulfill the depth of the roles we play. We have to remember that every moment in our life as an "Avatar" has tremendous potential, that we can alter our lives by following the impulses others would try to forget. We must own the reality that some days we lose what we love to be and other days are full of new opportunities to fulfill what we love to be. Films and plays are not about the days where you wake [...]

From A Rat to Top Dog | 4 Lessons Learned And Changed Self

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 12:55:00 +0000

From a struggler to Bollywood star- Nawazuddin Siddiqi How Was I A Stupid Actor?5 years of struggle, rejections, depleted finances, mounting credits, criticism, mockery... it was everything terrible which compelled me to chicken out from my dream to be a great actor. Then I met an actor cum an acting coach and that changed my life. I pondered, analyzed my 5 years of struggle, practiced and changed.Here  are my observations and tips to all actorsThe day I was struck by how similar the rules to acting are to the rules of success in life.After being labeled as a "Struggler" for long, the day had come when either I find the reason and change myself or quit acting. After analyzing my past of 5 years, asking close ADs and my acting coach,  I found that much like attaining success,  good acting is far from easy. The brighter side is, with the power of imagination, observation and regular practice, any one can be an excellent actor and be a believable on camera.1. Forget Self And  Self-Consciousness by Concentrating On "The Other”Here what I mean by "The Other" is reacting to your experience at the "moment" either in real in life or in a "imaginary moment" in a film scene or on stage. This is by reacting truthfully to what you have sensed through your 5 senses(see, smell, taste, listen and by touching)To varying degrees, humans are all the same. We are preoccupied with ourselves and what others think of us can lead to occasional irritating thoughts to crippling anxiety In acting, the number one rule is to lose self-consciousness, your "self", Archetype. Bad acting is often the result of self-awareness. It’s easy to tell when the actor is concerned with how they look, enjoying the sound of their voice or how they are performing. These thoughts take the actor way from the audience, and the actor loses being in a character and his credibilityActors can avoid this pitfall by shifting their concerns on some object on the set, or on watching and really listening to co actor. By responding to what they see and focusing on their partner’s reactions, actors may forget that they are "acting".  By placing   focus on the other person could be the best way to achieve goal on-stage or for the camera-by responding to the people. Listen and I mean really listen and respond naturally. 2. Focus On Controlling What You Can Control Not everything.  That may look fakeOnce, when I was attending class by Scott Zigler.  I noticed he always emphasizes that “ deliberate indication” is a sign of bad acting. When an audience watches a performance, it is easy to feel and tell if the actor is truly angry or just trying to act angry (hence “indicating” anger). To avoid this, actors need to STOP thinking that they need to "act".   For example to “feel” angry,  some will be trying desperately to "act" and the viewers will immediately feel them as "artificial". However, these actors can take at least "actions" which are within their control. For example, It is not my "attempt" to appear angry, but with my action like body language and gestures generated truthfully when you listen carefully and focusing on what and how my character will react may cause me to be angry.3. It's Not What You Say But How You SayI used to become frustrated during rehearsal when I felt that the lines in the script were awkward or out of character.However, good actors do not need to rely on the words of the script. The lines are simply the means to the character’s goal, and the actual words are not nearly as important as the tone of voice, inflection, body language and emotions behind them. For example, the words “I love you” can be used to really tell someone: “I care about you”. The audience is humans and can detect the slightest emotional signs — from the worry in someone[...]

Which habits made them Bollywood stars?How To Get Into Bollywood Film Industry?How To Become A Bollywood Actor/Actress?How Can I Be A Bollywood Star?I Want To Be A Bollywood Star. Help meStop Being A Struggler!Learn 10 Habits To Become A Bollywood Star1. Constantly Question EverythingWhen you’re taught something, don’t write it down, accept it as fact and vomit it out the same way later. Instead, as stars have done is to really dig it and turn upside down. If you don’t ask questions, are you really learning?2. Allow your thoughts to wanderToday Bollywood stars knew and did some of their best thinking while day-dreaming and letting his thoughts drift. When you feel stuck, especially when thinking about what to and how to do, allow yourself to lose focus and let your mind go somewhere else.3. Have varied interestsMany successful actors of films and TV dance, sing, play musical instruments, learned martial arts,  kept a pretty fascinating social life and studied non-stop. For some of you, this may seem mind-blowing and difficult but remember it’s important to be versatile when it comes to your interests and hobbies. You learn so much just by being interested in a multitude of things. It’s also a great way to give yourself a break from one subject ie "acting" when it starts to overburden you. It can help and inspire you when you feel stuck or depressed because of prolonged struggle, financial instability and frequent rejections and criticism.4. Figure out how you learn bestThe Bollywood stars knew, to succeed a never ending training is absolutely essential to be on top. They identified the following major areas of learning:Learning and updating acting craftHow to build body and look HOTHow to have an excellent proficiency in spoken Hindi and a reasonable English vocabulary.How to market and promote their acting career with all the contemporary toolsHow to be an excellent public relation guyHow to manage financesHow to have a thick skinHow to develop the ability to struggle for a long period 5. Surround yourself with brilliant, successful peopleLike everything in life, it’s easiest to be inspired to do something when you surround yourself with people who are especially good at that thing. When it comes to education and learning, do as stars did and surround you with successful actors, good casting directors, directors or assist. directors of any age and hobbies or develop in you, their hobbies to help you to be in their friend circle. Also, develop a habit of reading. Pick up some good books not only on acting but on how to be successful and happy in life and on other self-development subjects.6. Think for yourselfIn today’s world, we get so caught up in other peoples’ opinions. We think everything we do, right down to the coffee we drink, is important and is under the scrutiny of others. The Bollywood stars do notice but don’t get caught up in what other people think or say. Don’t write or argue with people you are associated and make it a habit.  Develop a habit of thinking for yourself and in the real world, not under imaginary situations, social media, and people. Make learning as your major interest and a second nature.7. Don’t give in to life's dramatic situationsThe film stars were never concerned with, well, any of the events going on around him! If they weren’t directly interesting to them, they would pretty much leave these events alone.

How To Bomb Competition And Be A Legendary King Actor

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 08:56:00 +0000

Destroy!Actor And Acting-How To Master Acting To Be A Legendary ActorThe growth as an actor and growth as a human being are similar(synonymous). The objective should be to learning with tools, professional training with the discipline to grow. Most importantly, To learn how to develop the limitless human imagination in their task of studying and bringing a script to life. IndividualThe 4 Basics To Destroy Competition1. Development Into A BombAn actor's talent is in him. He should discover, identify and learn how to develop itTo think them  and not on anybody's suggestionRespect their own ideas and values(unique ideas which have been developed over an entire lifetime)To be an independent and intelligent actor determined to train their mind, bodies, voice, and spirits to achieve their goals (Learn how to set goals)2. The Lethal Weapon Of  ImaginationAn actor's imaginations are the most powerful source to create even unimaginative.To bring a film or a theater play and characters to life. the actor must be able to create from his own living experiences or by a considerable period of observation of anything he feels by his 5 senses(See, smell, taste, hear and touch). The classic example is of a great actor-Lee J Cobb.3. The Ultimate Plan:  "And....Action!" Drama in a film or a theater depends on "Doing" rather than 'Saying' or Just 'Feeling'.However, an actor's approach strongly depends on connecting these together by creating a drama(conflict) between him and other characters or with 'given circumstances' in a story. This drama should not be between his own various shades of life(Me and myself)  which may push him into an isolation in the story. These actions especially in for the camera should be subtle, creative and expressive (with eyes and face).4. The Preperation: Script InterpretationA story by a writer and recreated as a screen play for film or a script for a play once submitted is a unique object with its own life and has a tremendous potential to 'impact'on the minds of the audience.To play it is not in words but in you.It's an actor's responsibility  to respect the script with deep and repeated readings, To know where the script is leading the characterUnderstanding  the character's environment(situation in a scene where the actor is performing)Understanding changes in emotions, conflicts and rhythm and tempoAll of the above becomes easier if he has or developed the power of the imagination to incredible heights. Finally, for an actor to achieve a true excellence, a clear objective, resolution, determination, and sacrifice becomes essentialInspired by an article from great acting teacher and author-Stella Adler My opinionA Legendary ActorA legendary actor is an individual that is worth remembering throughout years to come even after this actor has died. An actor who has attained this status leaves an unforgettable mark on others in some way. The actor's story is told over and over again and he or she is remembered throughout history. He or she leaves a morally based legacy for others to remember instead of anything of monetary value.They Develop And PossessCourage, will power, strength, wisdom and freedom, passion and positive attitude towards acting, more so towards life as well as with death, are all the qualities you need to strive for this unforgettable status in history. Have a warm heart, a broad mind, and an important mission to put all this in simple terms.Do not mix this up with just becoming a famous actor. It is true that some famous actors are legendary, but other famous people may only have fame for a short time and for the wrong reasons~Your Acting coach[...]

Force Your Selection-Legally | Learn 9 Ways To Play "Character"

Playing Character-Stab Tension before Audition | Be The King Of The KillAre You Trying Desperately To Portray A Character And Failing?Then You Aren't A Good ActorStab And Kill TensionNobody Tells You9 Truthful Observations How Actors Should Really Get Into CharacterThe Character You PlayStunning performance! Hrithik Roshan Playing gray haired mentally challenged character1.The mechanics and science of human nature and its implications to acting are staggering.Case in point is a "Character" and how to portray without discussing “character” from an acting standpoint.2. What “character”(in the story) really is from a truthful, practical sociological point of view?3. It’s you. And “you” as a human with a typical archetype who reacts and changes from different circumstances. Period. That’s what creates different “you’s.”Hot tea is spilled on you at Coffee Cafe Day. A different you are triggered.You ask your partner to marry you. She declines. A different you are triggered.A stranger asks you for directions. A different you are triggered.4.  “Character” in a screen play, then, isn’t what we think it is or, rather, what we want it to be".5. It isn’t a stable, easily identifiable set of closely related traits, and it only seems that way because of a flaw in the way our brains are organized. A character is more like a bundle of habits and tendencies and interests, on the circumstance in story and situation. The reason that most of us seem to have a consistent character is that most of us are really good at controlling and changing our environment. If not then we may leave and go to other”6. So just like in life, circumstances and context in a story trigger the many-sided characters out of us. Sometimes we like them, sometimes we don’t. Then why in 90% of actors, the portrayal of a character looks unreal, artificial as if trying desperately hard to be in a character?7. In my strong opinion as an experienced actor and an acting coach for the many years, if we can learn while creating a character, how to analyze and judge them less, we can reach them easily and more and become everything of a character we want: fearless, vulnerable, expressed, and instant transformative. Just like we aspire to in life.8. While creating a character in us everything comes from the inside(feeling and accepting) and so we come out so and so. But keep in mind- for sure it's also true, the outside triggers our insides- for example 'using physical gestures similar to a character in a given circumstance in a story for a convincing.9. This second consideration may help those actors poor in imagination, dreaming, high emotional sensitivity and self-transformation. An inborn Thick Skinned? Personally, I don't think so.To know more and to learn to play a character superbly, join  us [...]

Award winning director Director Mira Nair to an actor in a shoot...Struggling for long as an actor with no success?Often Failing in Bollywood and TV serial auditions?Only getting small roles, no big success?How to remove audition nervousness and a fear of forgetting lines?The culprit for all the aboveRead this small scene below and know the causePoor memorization?How learning lines can impress your audition and give a great shot in a film scene2 great stepsA ScreenplayVishwashghaat- A BetrayalFADE IN:INT. RAMESH HOUSE DRAWING ROOM- DAYJOERamesh, Ramesh, give my money back my's not "friend". It's "father".  Listen, I know you’re actually very good... but things like brain fog and forgetting important things are your huge barrier. Learn how to memorize. Will call you later.  Poor Memorization Is One Of The Major Reasons Why Good Actors Fail How Learning Lines Helps You To Create A Truthful Great Genuine PerformanceAfter my experience with many actors with an excellence in acting craft who unfortunately failed miserably either in auditions or while on filming a scene, I have come to the conclusion of one of the major reason being a poor portrayal of the character due to a nervousness triggered by forgetting lines.So, is a poor characterization by poor memorization or forgetfulness? I did considerable research to find out the best solution and though this may not be the only right way, here it's for you to tryLearning Lines ( Script)Step 1.Read your script focused deeply, without looking up, loudly even if you know it and repeatedlyThen three times without a wandering mind on bed before falling asleepAnd three times as you get up in the morningGo step by step In stage 1,  memorize first 3 lines. Cover these lines with some card and see you know them. Similarly then go to stage 2 and onwardsStart again from the beginning if you forget any lineDon't worry about creating a character, situation, tempo rhythm or emotions. These will follow once perfect with lines. This may be worked later if needed"Script Rehearser Free" app from google play is a good tool which helps you to record other characters'lines and leave space on your ownAfter recording your dialogues, listen to it in waiting rooms, driving, traveling on subway-metro, bus, while walking, jogging or anywhereReplace the lines of a song you remember to script lines. For example "Happy birthday to..." or "twinkle twinkle little star" and sing loudlyWrite lines in the air and speak themType lines while speaking them in different font size and in colors on Desktop or laptop.Step 2.Creating CharacterOnce you have memorized your script to a level becoming your second nature, start working on the script for creating a characterBreakdown the line by line as per the psychology of the characterQuestions to asked ( better, let the character answer-by you imagining to be the character)What is the backstory of  the scene and of the characterWhat is a character's objective and how is he/she achieving it?Why the character is saying things the way they areWhat the importance isWhat are the circumstances and situation in the sceneHow the character is showing emotions while speaking (love, sadness, happiness, anger, hate, distaste, wonderment, like-dislike, distrust, peace etc)Write down motives and action required for each line while speaking themNow imagine and try to transform self into character and speak your dialogs in a given circumstances of the scene. Get natural beats and feel it.Write keywords of each line in the margin of the script and make notes on the blank opposite page. Read them every time as neededI know this [...]

Neglect failure Sure, there may be many setbacks along the way to achieving an actor's ultimate goal of being a star actor and happy. However, each failure is but a lesson to be learned, and reignites his passion and drive to push forward in pursuit of his final goal.As soon as you make the commitment to becoming successful and a great actor--no matter what, your entire point of view on life will shift to one of self-centered, selfish taking advantage of every opportunity to result oriented and leave no stone unturned that comes your way. A failure of any magnitude is nothing but a speed bump along your journey to the top. When I became an actor. nobody really cared, I relooked myself up, reinvented, and kept going...because there is no other option.Failure doesn't mean you have failed. Only you haven't succeeded yet. so go on struggling till you get what you aimed at.2. Be passionateAn actor without passion, you're destined for failure amidst all the challenges you'll experience on the road to success. Your work needs to be something you love in order to outperform your millions of competitors in the long run. In fact, you are responsible to yourself not to indulge in any activity that leaves you feeling anything less than most joyful regularly.Don't expect to be completely in love with every aspect of your acting.If you follow your imagination, observation, curiosity, engage in your interests, and seek answers to the questions that matter most to you, there's nothing that can stop you from being the best in your field.3. Follow your curiositiesThe examples areWhat?Where?When?Whom?You get powerful lessons through finding the answers of the above leading to testing new ideas. As an actor, it will make you a creative performer.4. Dive deeply in your interestsWhat are your hobbies outside of acting work? Chances are your enjoyment of writing, making music, fencing, cooking, playing some game, teaching, or helping others that benefit other people. This will lay a foundation in you a ve[...]

Character Building Is Tailoring | Learn How To Stitch Suit

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 04:32:00 +0000

Feed Shark Acting is like stitching a suit | Bollywood actors with top Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio in suitsAn actor must consider 'Acting' as stitching character's suitHere is an example of an imaginary situation to explain a character buildingScreen Play (Script)THE TAILORFade in:INT. TAILOR'S SHOP-DAYA character (could be anybody-hero/heroin, villain, doctor, businessman, professor, taxi-driver etc.) walks into a tailor's shop.                                                 CharacterTailor master, stitch a good suit to look impressive and memorableActor TailorOkay. Tell about about you. I mean your physical, mental and social profileCharacterMy objective is to look good and convincing. You create it. He is my story and what have I to do. Read, analyse carefully and create (gives a script to the tailor)Actor TailorOkay. I will do my bestFade out--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Creating Your Character Is Like Tailoring A Suit“The first season of a show, the character is written and the actor is kind of putting on a suit. As the show progresses, the actors start to tailor the suits for themselves, and the writers start writing to the actors’ strengths…. If the actor is not helping inform the writers and they’re not able to go, ‘I feel this way about my character,’ the actor is not growing into the part.”Authenticity In Stitching SuitCasting directors or film TV directors hate watching people perform and feeling like they’re ‘acting’—acting like they’re frustrated, acting annoyed. Every character expresses their anger or hurt differently. Sometimes actors come in and try to show a universal way that they’re hurt or they’re mad, but it doesn’t necessarily tell a director/viewers what this character does when they get upset.You can give a stunning performance and expect appreciationBut it doesn't happen-you don't get selectedYou have overlookedWho decides how a film or a scene will succeedWho gives a break to youWhat they want in a characterHow are you meeting those requirements better than hundredsWho pays youCaution: Are You The Boss?You’re running the scene literally. You’re going to say ‘Hey, this is what you’re now going to watch on the screen.’ You have stitched the best suit (character) as per what you think the viewers will love. But it doesn't happen that way. You fail to impress casting directors, The difference is between what you think is good and what is required from a casting director point of viewActors Must Trust What’s On The ScriptAs a casting director or as a scene director you want actors to make interesting choices, but you also want them to do what’s in the script- objective, how a script achieves those objectives, beginning-middle, and end, rhythm, and tempo, given situation etc. Have you considered this while stitching the suit?Explore Deeper And Then CreateYou’re obviously finding characters after your vivid power of imagination-a deep psychological analysis and then breaking up of the physical, mental and social profile of the character. Then you try to transform yourself into this newly created life of the character.Don't go by preaching of an acting school or try to play safe. Feel Insecure. Don't be afraid to go wrong. Be imaginative, wild and vivid. Sure, you will be a wonderful tailorIn[...]

9 Solid Reasons Why You Can't Become An Actor? The Solution

Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age. WikipediaWhen most people think of actors they think of Hollywood or Bollywood actors who perform in blockbuster films, and this is often the ultimate aspiration of anyone dreaming of a career in acting. Without knowing requirements and whether you can meet them, this is bullshit!~Irrfan KhanUnless If You Have The Passion9 questions to ask yourself is why you want to become an actor?Is it because you want to be famous?Is it because you think you are more handsome or prettier than those actors who are famous today?You get dreams of stardom?Nobody asks for a degree, diploma, acting school? You like to be chased by fans and several film |TV reporters?You want to be called a star?You want to be rich?Sign autographs?Want handsome guys or pretty girls following you all the time?LogicalI think it would make sense to me when this feeling comes from an aspiring actor:“I want to be an actor because I love to act”, I like to entertain people”. "I feel joy in acts I do”. "I feel no tiredness, I think I am made for this. I don’t care how I look or sound. I just love to act”. "I feel I achieved success every time when my audience stands up and applause".It is difficult to achieve a high level of success in the field of acting if you link success with money, fame, stardom etc.. the majority of actors perform in smaller productions, often starting out in advertisements or as extras on television shows or films.Career LimitsThere are many actors who make a successful career out of so-called "bit parts" and never have a featuring role as a leading actor.Others who achieve great success very early in their careers, become household names, and get many major roles. The majority of actors will have a career that is somewhere in-between these two limits.

Change Your Acting Life In 5 Minutes | 9 Blows To Impress Film Folks

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 13:00:00 +0000

Karan Johar-"Great film producers love actors who impress them instantly"!How To Become A Successful Actor In 5 Minutes With 9 Punches“I’ve never told in my school"~ Marlon Brando ( Hollywood Legend)As for communication is concerned, we’re taught the basics of communication early in the classroom. To be able to read, write, and speak effectively, we had to learn vocabulary, grammar, spelling, handwriting, and pronunciation.Today, especially in cine industry, how to deal and talk goes much further than school education of the written or spoken word. The purpose of communication is to build and grow connections with others at better than just contacting and talking. It is at an emotional level.Therefore if you want to build up contacts with casting director, coordinators, producers, directors, TV channels and film production houses, the earlier you master communication skills, the better for you.So, are you really serious to fulfill your dreams of becoming a successful actor, better read and practice  the cheat-sheet to the 9 essential communication skills your school and parents missed:1. Showing warmth | sympathyPeople don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.Empathy makes us human. You connect with others much better when you show understanding, appreciation, sympathy, and compassion in your communication.How-to do it:Be present with the person and feel what he feels. When someone opens up with his problems, see it from his point of view. Suspend your own judgment of what’s right or wrong. Listen to his emotions. Reflect back his susceptibility by sharing yours. Ask questions to go deeper into his world. Give encouragement. Offer to help if possible. Show the kindness and compassion you would hope to receive from someone else when in a similar situation.2. Resolving conflictThis is the "how to defuse a bomb" under top communication skills. Left unchecked, conflict can leave contacts, communication, relationships constantly turbulent and painful. Avoiding conflict altogether isn’t a solution either, as you’ll often be simmering with restrained frustration and resentment. Conflict often happens as a result of poor communication. To resolve such conflict, you’d need better communication skills.How-to do it:Respond, but never react. When you react to a conflict situation, you allow emotions to lead your words and actions. Responding to the situation means you keep emotions in check and focus on the problem, not the person. Let the other party know your intention to work out a mutually acceptable solution. Clearly and calmly communicate what you want from the situation and listen to the other party’s views. Understand what counts as a ‘win’? winning the argument or winning the other person over?. The two are very different.3. Asking great questionsTo be a better communicator, don’t try to be the person with all the right answers. Instead, be the one who asks all the right questions, but not one to embarrass anyone. When you ask great questions, you show that you’re eager to engage and open to exploring more into the topic. They encourage the other party to share more of his opinions, stimulate discussion, and even create new ideas. He won’t forget you in a hurry.How-to do it:Ask questions that could lead to interesting answers. To do that, keep your questions open-ended, that is, they cannot be answered with a simple [...]
