We had another great Ongoing Scene Study for Film & TV class on Tuesday night.
We took a look at our previous work and talked about what we noticed and how we felt about it. I commented on what I think could make the work stronger and we went from that discussion to talking about the first two letters of The CAPTURES Method - C - commitment and change and A - authenticity and action. We took a few notes on our worksheet about how we could implement these concepts into our work and/or life. I mentioned how The CAPTURES Method tools can be used for acting and in everyday living.
We got in front of the camera and worked on our scenes and noticed how important it was to keep from blinking unless it was absolutely necessary. I mentioned that when watching films and television, notice how the lead actors often blink the least. Blinking is often reserved to tell story rather than as an automatic response. I talked about how we have to get good at crafting every aspect of the story we are telling in front of the camera. I also mentioned how we live in STORY like fish live in water. We can't exist without STORY!

I'm looking forward to working with everyone this Tuesday. Keep up the good work! We'll continue with a few more concepts from The CAPTURES Method and keep working on the scenes. I encourage all of you to reach out to each other and see if you'd like to work with each other at some point.
Breathe in. Breathe out. And...ACTION!
