Ep.028 - A Journey into the Mind of the Actor
Last week, we talked about great actors and their characteristics; such as intuition and instinct, taking risks and letting your guard down, experiencing empathy and feeling what your character feels, being versatile and flexible, being vulnerable to the experiences of your character, having camaraderie with your scene partners, having passion - the kind of passion that can’t be taught.
These are certain traits that filmmakers look for in a great actor - I encourage you to check out EP26 for more information on just key identifying features of a GREAT ACTOR.
This week we’re going to continue exploring acting, but we’re gonna get a bit more nerdy about it and dig deeper into the psychology of performance.
