This Tuesday in class I was given another great comedic scene! I am thrilled to be working on comedy. My new scene is from the sitcom “Girlfriends” and my character is Susan, a hip NY editor. The episode is entitled “New York Unbound”.
After the cold reading exercises, my classmates and I watch our scenes in class. I have to say, as much as I enjoy my craft, it is hard to watch myself on camera. I am my worst critic, picking on everything from my hair to the look on my face when I’m saying my lines. That’s why this on-camera class is so interesting. I’m learning what works and what does not work on camera.
Next week I will return to class with the scene memorized. I will work on the scene on-camera and Christinna will give me a couple things to “play with”. I can’t wait!
