To sit in a public place while you know you have an agenda enables you to slowly start to become aware of what stops you from simply observing yourself and your surroundings. Also, the act of self-discovery, so exciting to see on the screen, begins to emerge in this simple exercise. Can you observe when your ability to concentrate wavers and what impedes it? Are you willing to whittle away at the things that stand in your way? I always say it’s like being a sculptor.

It releases tension and uncovers things you didn’t know were there. ” It’s often when you have feelings that you can’t express. Sighing is often a flag signifying that emotions need to be expressed. • Don’t sit on the breath by allowing it to fall down into the navel area; keep the breath moving in the upper chest. Emotions are most easily expressed and released when the breath is high in the body. Just watch an excited or upset child’s breathing or a very angry person’s breath pattern, and you will see how the chest moves as if the emotion were riding on it.
The Voice and the Breath range is extremely important in the film world. Since the camera comes in very close to photograph your face, you must look believably like the age that you are playing. The age range usually runs in five- to ten-year spans around your real age. For instance, if you are thirty years old, then your age range runs approximately from twenty-five to thirty-five years old. Sometimes, the age range is less than ten years, depending on the person. It is rarely more. This doesn’t mean that you will never play a part outside of your age range, but for our purposes now, we will stay within it.
