    It's less than a month until this year's round of drama school auditions. I'm applying for RADA, LAMDA and GSMD. I need to learn four speeches because they all want different things and I know three out of four off by heart. The problem is that because of the time of year, my S.A.D has come back and had zapped all of my energy. I really want this but I cannot find an ounce of energy to rehearse and perfect my performance. It has become a vicious cycle and I'm getting more and more stressed and angry at myself because this is the big one I've been waiting for all year and I'm nowhere near ready to go. I've no idea how to get out of this toxic cycle. I know it's down to me but yelling at myself to do it isn't working. I'm actually having nightmares about being there and not knowing my lines now. Help!

  • Can someone help me write a monologue? It has to be about a character you don t see the viewpoint of from a fairy tale, fable, or folktale.?

    Best answer: How about the witch in Hansel and Gretel? She's living by herself in the forest and two little brats show up and start eating her house. Or the mice that get turned into horses to get Cinderella to the party. What happens to them afterward? They're mice again but still attached to a coach? UPDATE: As I... show more
    Best answer: How about the witch in Hansel and Gretel?
    She's living by herself in the forest and two little brats show up and start eating her house.
    Or the mice that get turned into horses to get Cinderella to the party. What happens to them afterward? They're mice again but still attached to a coach?


    UPDATE: As I recall Ellie doesn't get everything she wants. She can't have children. So you have to discuss that disappointment. How do she and her husband adjust to this? I'm not sure but I don't think the movie goes into their lives together much except to show that they were happy. So fill it in. Maybe she has a fulfilling career, or just enjoys cooking and gardening. She was perhaps worried about her husband when she gets sick. How would he do on his own?
    Then you have to decide if she had any awareness of the events after her death of if that's the end of the story for her.

    Best answer: A few - a very tiny percentage of actors - didn't go to drama school. They managed to get into the business through excellent contacts, extreme good looks and/or huge luck.
    The percentage of those is about the same as those who have won 50 million on the Lottery.
    Almost all professional actors have huge natural talent. It's an incredibly competitive business.
    If anyone thought that they could forget about learning to act, studying every aspect of acting, getting experience over many years of stage and film work, that would be extremely foolish.

  • Is film acting much more challenging than stage acting?

    Best answer: Both have their own challenges.

    Stage acting means you have one chance to get things right during a performance. Every word and movement must be memorized.

    Film acting is done in small takes for the most part and will be repeated several times. The body movements must be minimal and consistent but if a line is flubbed the whole bit can be restarted.

    Having done both, I much prefer stage acting. I find film work disjointed, repetitive and disconnected when compared to being on stage.

  • What are the differences between film acting and stage acting?

    Best answer: Film acting is about subtle nuances in vocal expression and micro-expressions in the face and body because of all the closeups.

    Best answer: Film acting is about subtle nuances in vocal expression and micro-expressions in the face and body because of all the closeups.

    Stage acting is about voice projection that doesn't allow for subtle nuances and exaggerated movements that people can see.

    Film acting can be done as many times as it takes to get right.

    Stage acting must be gotten right and/or improvised because there is no second take, no director yelling "cut."

    In some ways, film acting may require a lot more of the actor because more and more these days film actors are acting to a tennis ball in front of a green screen without any props or costumes or other actors or any visuals whatsoever to help them believe their character, which if they don't believe neither will the audience.

    Stage acting has the advantage of sets and costumes and other actors and the many things that help actors portray a believable character.

    There's more, but I'm tired of writing.
