Can you reach extreme emotions consistently?


Can you reach extreme emotions with ease? Even under pressure?

When I say extreme emotion, I'm talking tears, rage, Shakespearian drama. ;) Some scenes demand that, and as an actor, you'll need to be able to provide it... take after take… after take!

That can be a pretty lofty request for some people, and I hear many actors say they will work on this skill only once it's requested of them, and not before. If it's not needed right this minute, they don't think it’s necessary to have it under their belt yet.

Another common scenario is when an actor is actually prepared for intense scenes, but then there are delays on set or the energy with their partner or Director wasn't great, and by the time it's their turn to shine, they cannot deliver. They are already spent.

The entertainment industry is definitely a pressure cooker, and with so many moving parts on a set (and in that #actorslife), things are bound to not go according to plan. But being a part of it was a choice you made, so you need to be down for what it is like, which is unstructured, chaotic, and fast-paced.

Here’s how to prepare ahead of time.

When you watch my free training, you’ll discover…

  1. You need to plan for the worst because your job as an actor is to navigate the unpredictable circumstances of the industry and still open up your instrument and show up for your character.

  2. Train your instrument for extreme emotions like an athlete prepares for the Olympics.

  3. It’s essential that you get comfortable with your own extreme emotions and release yourself from the way you’ve been conditioned to act by authority figures your whole life.

Watch the training below now.

After you watch the training, I’d love for you to join in the conversation happening in our private Facebook Group. You’ll also get access to more videos and resources, and connect with HUNDREDS of like-minded actors across the globe.

If you’re not already a member, be sure to request to join ASAP.

See you there!
