There are times when you are considering becoming an actor, or if you are already one, you might want to become a better actor.
Although this might be one of your goals, but you cannot be able to achieve this is you do not have any idea on where to begin.To investigate, there are certain processes that you need to follow so that you will be able to have the answers that you are looking for.
Since this is a new journey that you are going to be embarking with, allow me to share with you some of the experiences that I have.
A few years ago, I saw an ad that caught my attention and made my heart leap into space. The artistry that this black and white ad is made of, the look that it is giving off, and the name of the acting studio told me that I should enroll in it so that I can learn a lot from it. This studio is located on the 14th street somewhere in the west and I was in a hurry to climb the stairs to get there. What I have envisioned is for my life to change forever!
In the present, there are already many acting studios, acting techniques, and acting schools that you can choose from unlike before when choices are really limited. Even though research is now available for you, and there is already a wide variety for you to choose from, how you select would still be the same. You would still have to trust what feels right, what captivates you, speaks to you, grabs you, and lights you up.
To help you understand better some of the current techniques that are being mentioned in the chapter of the acting book that I have, “Transformational Acting”, let me abbreviate some words for you.
Here are some current methods and theatre history:
A great Russian director int he early 1900s together with a teacher was able to develop the system known as the method acting which took acting into an entirely different dimension.
How to imitate and master certain physical and vocal abilities is being practiced prior to this, as well as representational acting.
There was a new field of psychology that was then discovered that enable people to understand more about how a human behaves, and how to teach concepts of sense memory so that truth will be attained. This pave way for actors to make past emotions as a tool for acting. The magic “if” is being used to stimulate the imagination of the actor. The actor would try to put himself or herself in a situation that he or she might think is impossible to happen.
