One of my favorite things to discuss/research/ponder/reflect upon is presence. I firmly believe that learning how to be present and practicing presence is one of the best ways you can improve your acting, your artistry, and your life. The next few posts will be geared at this concept, so make sure you come by again; but, in the meantime, I wanted to share three of my favorite videos about presence.
The first two videos are Patsy Rodenburg, a voice and speech teacher instructor; the last video is Amy Cuddy, a social psychologist.
Enjoy, and happy creating :)
The ACTIVE ACTOR
You are probably wondering this blog is about. Well, it's about anything that everything that I find inspiring, helpful, and curiosity building.
Curiosity is my favorite state of being, and I've become a treasure hunter and a trash hoarder, collecting all sorts of articles, artwork, and accessories that fuel my inspiration and creativity.
This will also be a place for me to document my life as an actor and coach in Los Angeles. If performing is your passion, I hope that this blog becomes a place for you to learn from my mistakes, grow from my accomplishments, laugh at my witless choices, and share in this crazy, unpredictable, beautiful, life in the arts.
