What’s your character’s Personality Type?

by | Oct 27, 2016 | Blog

What’s your character’s Personality Type? Have you ever picked up an audition script and thought, “Yes! This is exactly the way I would think and act,”? Most likely, you and your character share the same personality type. On the other hand, have you looked at a scene and wondered, “Why would my character do that? It makes no sense!” If your character’s behavior doesn’t make sense to you, odds are you have a different personality type. In our class series, Audition Game Pro, one of our most important steps is to identify the Personality Type of your character. In an ideal world, you would have plenty of time to explore the psyche, motivation, and worldview of your character. But let’s be real. The turn around time on an audition can be less than 24 hours (in some cases much less!). If you’re going in for a character who’s personality type is far removed from who you are, it can feel impossible to create a compelling audition in a short amount of time. Enter the Personality Type Funsheet. Check out today’s video to find out the 4 Main Personality Types you’ll encounter in every script that comes your way… Now download the Personality Type Funsheet. Use it to identify your character’s main personality type, and traits. This will help you quickly create audition choices in alignment with your character’s personality traits (especially when it’s different from your natural way of being). This funsheet is directly from the Audition Game Pro Digital program (and we usually save it for students of the class) so get it while you can! Leave a comment. What personality type are you? How can this funsheet...

3 Ways to Play Powerful Characters

by | Sep 29, 2016 | Blog

3 Ways to Play Powerful Characters These days TV shows and movies are full of fantasy, superheroes, and magic. So many characters have crazy powers or see Strange(r) Things 😉  These genres present a new challenge: How to create a powerful character in your audition? After all, in the audition stage it’s just you in a room… No special effects, No badass costumes, No Dragons.     So how can you really embody that kind of character all by yourself? Check out these 3 tips to get you powered up! 1. Stillness: Too much movement can read as nervousness or weakness on camera. Pay attention to how powerful people move, they do not waste energy. If they move, it’s with purpose. And they have no problem staying still – it projects confidence. Pro tip: Make sure to watch your posture as well – Powerful people stand (or sit) tall! 2. Time: People who have true power take their time. It’s their world, their rules, and they set the pace. A mark of true power is never letting anyone else rush you. 3. Calm: Power is about control – so don’t let your enemies see you sweat! Even when someone is trying to get to you, maintaining your calm is something powerful people excel at. Nothing truly threatens them because they have the…you guessed it! Power. Want to see a MASTER of projecting power? Watch Emilia Clarke on Game of Thrones (Spoiler Ahead):  Even though she is physically smaller than her opponents, she’s always the most powerful person in the room. She’s grounded and still, never flinches at threats, and takes her time to show SHE is the one in charge: https://youtu.be/eXJ8dsTUKAw?t=3m10s https://youtu.be/KvqzywRDsSw?t=2m43s...
