This Month’s Focus

Part Five: Never Settle For The First Taste Of Success

Today’s Class

Sensory Transformation

Today’s Target

​​One of the largest character unknowns is our perception of the world around us.

There are constant reminders of being on a set, or in an audition room, or being watched by an audience.

Constant tastes of the actor’s world proving the unknowns of our character.

This week we’re expanding our craft with a teammate for our tastebuds, a pal for our perception … a Sensei of Sensory Transformation. (Hey-o!)

A powerful tool for seeing through the eyes of our character.

Hearing through the ears of our character.

Smelling through their nose.

Everytime. Everywhere. No matter the real-world distraction.
