Cut! The word the director uses when filming of a scene is complete, therefore it is apt in this scenario. No I'm not ending my blog but my Acting for Camera classes ended last week, this made me sad for now I have nothing to look forward to. However, I am planning on doing more... Continue Reading →



A "friend" said I was "Borderline Emotionally Manipulative" the other day, AFTER, I'd told them I was suicidal. They said they cared which is why they were saying to "get the self-pity out". I'm sorry, but how is that caring? What's worse is this person has been in a bad place before, so for them... Continue Reading →

Acting For Camera (Lesson 8)

Last night was the first of two nights where the filming for final pieces happened, my pairing happened to be up first. I knew my lines, the lights and the camera, I muddled them up, it was scary, less so than stage, but still scary. Getting the markers without looking, having a camera(s) in your...

Acting For Camera (Lesson 7)

Over halfway! That means it's getting to the "complicated" part. It's not that complicated really, just tiresome, like being on a real set I guess. Lots of sitting around, doing not alot, getting a sore bum because the floor isn't very comfy, yes there were chairs but for some reason, no-one was really using them.... Continue Reading →

Acting For Camera (Lesson 6)

Lesson 5 didn’t happen as I wasn’t well, hence the skipping to Lesson 6. I got a script via email the other day for Lesson 6, only to discover the person I’m doing the script with was not there and because I’d already analysed it I didn’t have much to do. I ran through it... Continue Reading →

Acting For Camera (Lesson 4)

Yesterday’s class was a ‘Master’ recording of our scripts that we had to learn the previous week, so the camera just kept rolling. We then watched them back, it was so uncomfortable watching myself on camera as well as hearing myself, I don’t like it, at all! May be you get used to it, may... Continue Reading →

Acting for Camera (Lesson 3)

Today was as fun as usual! Had to read our scripts, on camera, once was off camera just a normal script read and if you forgot your line just said line and whoever was holding the script said the first few words of the line. Then we did it on camera without it recording and... Continue Reading →

On the mend

Spent pretty much all weekend either asleep in bed or on the sofa, not sure if I had a cold or one of those evil 24 hour bug things, because I had the cold but also a temperature and just wanted to sleep, nothing else. Thankfully I'm feeling better today, much better actually, so I'm... Continue Reading →
