Fearlessness

As artists we choose different mediums to express ourselves. Actors choose acting as their medium to share some deep need or secret or story. And it seems safer because we are sharing through our character’s story – so it may feel like a mask, but….

The paradox is that when we actually have to get up in class, or in front of the camera, and be vulnerable and use our character’s story to express our own, we get scared and hide. Fascinating – because we are the ones who chose the profession of “being vulnerable.”

How do you move past this block and create vulnerable performances, which are fulfilling to you and your audience? You have to develop fearlessness.  You must be a fearless artist and take risks.  Think about it: the very best performances are when you feel someone spilling their guts out. Look at this year’s Academy Award-winning performances: Lupita Nyong’o, Amy Adams, Jared Leto. (Actually, look at every year’s Academy Award nominee list.)  My opinion is when an actor really goes out on a limb and risks great vulnerability it is usually their best work. A great example is Matthew McConaughey: Dallas Buyers Club. He put a lot on the line for that movie, including his own money. He was vulnerable in multiple ways – his money, his healthy, his soul – and see how it paid off.

So the question becomes: What do you need to create a vulnerable performance?

If you’re an actor or know someone who is feel free to share this article with those you believe could benefit from it. Thank you.

And risk being vulnerable right here. Share your experience as a fearless or fearful actor. Who knows, your input just might make the difference in preparing and inspiring someone to deliver the performance of a lifetime.

LIVE THE DREAM YOU WERE BORN TO

Acting should be simple. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. If you are an actor, or know someone who is, and you need a safe place to be yourself and to be challenged to continually grow and share vulnerable performances, Intentional Acting may be the right class for you.
There is no better moment than now to make the intention to take full control of your acting career and live the dream you were born to.

How many actors do you know run their career like a business? True, it’s not something you hear much about when it comes to the essentials necessary for being a working actor. But if you are committed to having a long, fulfilling career it’s essential you see it through the eyes of a business owner.

A Business Decision

Acting is your business and you need to run it like a business. The more you run it like a business, the better your results. As you start to understand your bottom line you will start to understand how agents, managers, producers and casting directors think.

For example, it’s not easy to go in for an audition and not get the role. It stings. But when you reinterpret that as a business decision it becomes much easier to not take it personally when you don’t get cast.

Ask yourself this: “If I were the CEO of multi-million dollar business and had a $100,000 to give to an actor would I give it to me?” Of course you say “Yeah, baby!” But think like a CEO and ask yourself these questions:

  1. Is my product (me, my audition skills, acting chops) at the top of its game, the best it can be?
  2. Do I have a budget for my business?
  3. Do I have a business plan?
  4. Do I have a marketing plan?
  5. Do I have a team (i.e. agent, manager, acting coach, lawyer) in place that is excited about working for me?
  6. Do I have a target list of business relationships with whom I’m networking? (i.e. casting directors and producers – people who can hire me.)
  7. Do I know my statistics regarding my auditions, callbacks, and bookings?

If you answer “No” to any of questions you will see a major area of opportunity to strengthen the business of your career.

You might think, “The Casting Director doesn’t care about any of this.”  Wanna bet? They do, because they want professional actors not desperate actors. If you have a budget, a business plan, a marketing plan  – you won’t be desperate. If you have great relationships and they know you’re networking – Casting Directors want to know who you know. They want to cast the next Brad Pitt or Jennifer Lawrence.  So act like stars now in your real life and treat your acting career seriously like a business.

There is no better time than right now to start thinking and acting like you are the CEO of your business. Because you are.

One of the ways professionals know that a famous painting is real is by its flaws. The more perfect the painting is, the more evident that it is not authentic. Many say, that it is the flaws that make the painting so beautiful. This is also true in acting.

Charlise Theron and Hallie Berry didn’t get their Oscars for being beautiful, perfect, and in control. They got it for their roles in MONSTER and MONSTER’S BALL where they were literally considered monsters of one sort or another. I bet, if you asked them how they felt while doing the roles, they  would say they felt afraid, uncomfortable, and vulnerable.

Are you willing to be uncomfortable in your scene work, or do you pick safe choices which lack a personal emotional investment? When you feel vulnerable during or after a scene, do you consider it a sign that you’re on target or do you stop the scene, change intentions, or quit class?

Be willing to fail, look imperfect, be vulnerable. Spend some time getting comfortable with uncomfortable feelings. This willingness will expand your emotional range and allow you to be truly authentic. And that’s who will book the job – the authentic you.

Share your thoughts on this topic – are you willing?
