Understanding logic of the script – what is the script saying to you.
Identify it's meaning, and how you relate to the script and the role.
Simplify your choices, and stick to them. – keep it simple
and play it straight, avoid distractions, and focus on your choices.
The 4 most important steps to identify and remember are:
1. What is it I want? Start off with 'I want something'
make it what you want.
2. What is the purpose of my role? – to convince, to seduce etc.
3. What is the most challenging part of the scene?
and what makes it so. Who's against me? What's against me?
4. Understanding beats and changes and how they might
possibly obscure my objectives.

Invite only - Shooting episodes from film and TV
Step One – script will be given to actors for following week.
A director will be assigned to that group with me involved in the process.
First week will be concentrating on character work – physicality and
detail of the character, props, clothing, and relationship to the role.
Blocking the scenes with details from learning to do close ups to mid shots to wide shots.
Week shoot, script and feedback from director with real breakdowns from what worked to what didn't work and then from myself and listen to criticism without being defensive.
