December 8, 2006, Newsletter Issue #42: Drama Strategy

Tip of the Week

A simple strategy for creating honest drama is through the use of mantras. While you are acting in a scene, recite an appropriate motivational phrase over and over again in your head. The mantra will subconsciously affect your performance, making it seem more natural. For example, if you are playing a love scene, you may want to try reciting, "I love you," in your head during the scene. The mantra will help to add depth to your character.
