"Let’s Go On" from Rhapsody on Uke! (by Felicia Day)

Friday video is here! I decided to use that ukelele I talked about a few weeks ago and try it out! I play a song from that weird video game we played on Co-Optitude this week, “Rhapsody”.

Really enjoyed learning the chords, maybe I’ll do it again sometime :)

she is adorable

I often get asked if I have any tips on how to work on improvising when not in class or rehearsal. Here’s what I do:

1. Watch a lot of Netflix. Video helps me imagine the environment when I’m in a scene. I tie the scene back to something I’ve watched in the past. Suddenly, I don’t have to invent…

Great advice :) Practice life is true for acting at well. You can’t just bury yourself in your art.

Is Method Acting Destroying Actors?

Richard Brody on why modern acting asks too much of performers: http://nyr.kr/1gT34GP

“An actor’s attempted excavation of her own deepest and harshest experiences to lend them to characters adds a dimension of self-revelation (even if only to oneself), of wounds reopened and memories relived, that would make for agony in therapy.”

Yes.
