There are times when you are considering becoming an actor, or if you are already one, you might want to become a better actor.
Nevertheless, you need to choose the best acting class from the best acting school, but how do you do that?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.
I have some personal experiences that I can share to you just to help you get a head start with your journey.
My heart jumped as soon as I was able to see an ad that certainly caught my attention many years ago. I was struck by the way the ad was made of based on a black and white philosophy, the look of the print was able to call my attention, and my curiosity was awakened because of the name of the studio that made me decide I want to be a part of it. On the west side of the 14th street is where the studio lies, and I climbed the stairs as fast as I could forgetting about everything else. I just want 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. And even if there are more varieties already and the modes of research are there for your use, how you choose would still be the same. It is to trust the instincts that you have when you are captivated, when you feel it is right, when you think it is trying to grab you, when it lights you up, and when you think it is speaking to you.
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.
Some of the current methods as well as some theatre history are:
There was an entirely different dimension that was made when the great Russian director together with a teacher was able to come up with a system of method acting in the early 1900s.
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.
