Aloha Actors, When the audience of students at Pace University got the chance to ask questions, Clooney offered wise words on the art of acting.

On auditioning: “Actors tend to get in their own way, a lot. A lot of times you will do things that will screw up your audition process. I was very bad at auditioning, and I always went in to it saying ‘God I hope I don’t screw this up.’ But at the same time, the directors are saying, ‘God, I hope this person is the savior.’ You have to remember is that the worst thing that could happen is you don’t get the job you don’t already have.”

On getting emotional take after take: “Sometimes you don’t get there. I’ve worked with actors when there’s no time, mostly on television, with director who is only result oriented and says ‘I need you to cry here.’ There are times when you’re just not going to get there. But remember that on film and TV you only need to get it right once. The minute you let go, you always do well.”

One of Clooney’s final pieces of advice to actors was, “Confidence is one of the big things you’re selling.” Clearly, Clooney is taking that advice and running with it, because he oozed confidence up there with Lipton (and for good reason).

Overall, this was a great show. Clooney was great, I learned new things, I laughed, I cried, I learned Clooney likes to say “shitzu.” http://www.neontommy.com/news/2012/01/george-clooney-admits-im-hair...

WAYNE WARD , SAG/AFTRA - AN APPROACH TO ACTING

OVER THE YEARS I HAVE DEVELOPED MY OWN “APPROACH”...

“Intuitive Performance”
”NO “ACTING”, PLEASE!”...SIMPLY...BELIEVE!...BECOME!...AND...BE!...

I BASE MY PROCESS ON STANISLAVSKY...AND ON THE METHOD...
WITH A BIT OF SHURTLEFF...MEISNER...AND HAGEN THROWN IN...

I BELIEVE IN AUTHENTIC PERFORMANCE...THAT WHICH COMES FROM 3-DIMENSIONAL EMOTIONAL CHOICES MADE FOR THE CHARACTERS...

NEVER TRY TO DO ANYTHING AS THE ACTOR....BUT ONLY AS THE CHARACTER...WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE THE “ACTOR” @ WORK… ONLY THE “CHARACTER” @ WORK...

ALL OF THE LEGENDARY ACTING ‘TECHNIQUES’ ARE MERELY “PROCESSES”...TO HELP THE ACTOR GET INTO THE “Life-Moment” OF THE CHARACTER.

I BELIEVE THE ACTOR NEEDS TO WORK FROM “WITHIN”...AND THAT ALL DIALOGUE BEGINS “WITHIN”...IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO KNOW...WHERE THE DIALOGUE COMES FROM... THAN IT IS TO KNOW THE DIALOGUE ITSELF...

THE ACTOR SIMPLY NEEDS TO...LISTEN AS THE CHARACTER...AND REACT AS THE CHARACTER...THEN DELIVER THE NEXT “LIFE MOMENT”…WITHOUT “INDICATING”…

DETERMINE Emotionally :

The STORY...The SEQUENCE OF EVENTS...

The SILENT DIALOGUE...The SECOND BEFORE

I BELIEVE THAT ACTING NEEDS TO BE AN ENSEMBLE EXPERIENCE....BETWEEN THE CHARACTERS...NEVER ALONE...

I BELIEVE IN SILENT DIALOGUE...THAT WHICH THE CHARACTER IS THINKING AND FEELING...BUT NOT SAYING...
SILENT DIALOGUE. AND THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE CHARCTERS CREATES MEMORABLE...AND LASTING PERFORMANCE..

I BELIEVE IT NEEDS TO BE AN ”EFFORTLESS”...“EASY” PROCESS...
GETTING THE “SCRIPT” AND THE “ACTOR”...OUT OF THE WAY...!

DISCOVER YOUR CHARACTER LURKING IN THE CORNERS OF YOUR MIND...BE YOURSELF...IN THAT STORY...INSIDE THAT CHARACTER...
AND ALWAYS YOUR IMAGINATIVE SELF!... Wayne

Tips From Casting Directors :: Happy Thanksgiving!

Don't look down at the paper all through the reading. Put your thumb next to the line you're reading for reference. Look quickly at the line and commit it to memory, then look up and deliver it. Let the director see your expressions. If your lines are too long to commit to memory at a glance, go ahead and repeat the process. But whatever you do, don't bury your head in the script.
Listen! Sometime you have an idea about the character by glancing at the script, but the director may have another idea. If the director describes the character and the situation to you, listen! Don't try to sneak a peek at your lines. It's better to understand what the director is looking for than to focus on the next line.
While you're reading, focus on the person who's reading with you. Look at what you have to say, then communicate with the other actor. Don't read the lines to the camera, the casting director, or anyone else that is in the room. Read only to the person who reads with you.
If it is a stage production, don't be afraid to use space and movement during cold readings. Follow your instincts. If it's a screen reading, don't move a lot, stay within your frame, unless your were instructed otherwise.
Listen to your partner's line rather than reading ahead. Much of acting is reacting, and your silent response is often as important as ,much as your spoken one. Let the director see your reactions.
Be conscious of your posture. Everything about you should play the role--not just your voice.
If asked to read in a different way, take it as a compliment not a criticism.
Don't apologize, or request to start over. A casting director looks how you deal with the situation, not only with the text. Take your time if you made a mistake, then make it a part of the character.
