A bit of repeating, which (appropriately) is hard. Not technique hard. Doing hard.
Some of the things that are sticking with me from tonight:
The goal is not to be a character made for a scene -- it's to be a person living out moment.Oh, and I hate hate hate next week's class. Hate it.
I'm adding things to my toolbox that work, and getting rid of things that don't.
Life experience is temporary, so don't use it.
The minute I stopped lying, I became the greatest actor I will be. Now it's just about raising the stakes.
Acting is athletic.
In class, we take sides. That's what actors do -- we take sides.
I will never be done repeating. Eventually, I'll be repeating through the eyes of my character. That's when I know I've got this stuff down -- I'll know that I've got this when something I repeat affects me in a way it would not in real life.
