Living Truthfully Under Imaginary Circumstances

"A Practical Handbook for the Actor" discusses the truth of the moment, which describes how an actor should react to a rehearsed scene as if it were the first time it was happening. This means no matter how many times you film your monologue, or practice, you should add improv whenever you can to make it as authentic as possible. (Number 1 Rule of Improv: never say no!) The chemistry of acting, no matter how similar the ingredients are from one another, can still produce a completely different reaction three, four, even seven times around, which keeps acting interesting!
Hope you guys get my idea :)

back on the bandwagon

Such an old saying, I know. but I feel like I'm getting old, not uploading videos for weeks.
If you're following my twitter, www.twitter.com/thatsophiakid, I'd assume you know I'm horribly sick
Even worse, I woke up this morning... with no voice. Should I take up American Sign Language or something because I swear, I need to film this video!
But besides me telling you guys all this kind of stuff, I want some requests!

What are some things you would like confirmed or explained about the industry? More about auditions? More about Disney? More about Acting Scouts and when they have these huge go-sees?

Youtube, thank you for making me laugh.

Basically, YouTube has decided to ever so intelligently "understand" what the person in a video is saying and translate it into words. You can try this out by going to almost any video and clicking the cc at the bottom bar. Let's just say it didn't really get the gist of it...

Yup guys, if you ever need to find auditions, honestly,
 just call mass in Seattle or call France.
