    Acting Exercises. Why do them?
    Below is a brief example of an exercise which assists the actor in developing the most important skill
    in the craft of acting. The ability to live in a moment to moment reality with his fellow actor on a level that transcends dialogue.  What communicates on stage (and off stage) is behavior.  What a person/character says  (text)  is often in direct contradiction to what is actually going on between two people. 
    "It's between the lines/text where the performance occurs." 

    The exercise below is one of many that develop this ability.

    "It's between the lines/text where the performance occurs."

    Below – is an actual scene where, if you look closely, you will see:

    A 'connection' between the actors (Anthony Mendolia & Jon Bryden) beyond the words they are speaking. 

    It's through the practice of specific acting exercises that these actors have acquired this most essential skill.

    Actors Showreels!

    What is a showreel?  A Showreel is a short video that shows how you look & sound on camera. 
    You’ll find that most directors & agents want to see a clip from your showreel to get some idea of how you look & perform to camera.  If doing a showreel is something that may interest you – you can access all information and also see a 'sample' showreel by clicking on pic here —>
