My Passion for Acting…

I have always had a passion for acting. From when I first started when I was six until now. I have fallen in love with it.  I think I love Acting so much because it is becoming a character that is a part of you. It is a way to express emotions, show thoughts, and be yourself.

When I first started acting, I was shy and spoke very quietly. Now, I am more myself and acting has brought me contentment and energy that I have never had before.

For my career in the future, I would love to act. My dream has always been to become a movie actress, so this is what I am pursuing.  I want to become a movie actress because you can be a character that is a part of your life. I think that it would be AMAZING to do this so if you have any tips for becoming one, comment down below.

I first started this blog so I could share my path with all of you and to help you strive for something that you have always dreamed of. Whether it is engineering, science, animals, etc. Pursue your passion!

Whatever makes you happy is your passion. It is part of who you are so chase it.

Theatre: How to Project

Projecting is one of those things that takes time to get the hang of it. When you first start acting, you aren’t used to using your voice in a way in which everyone can hear. Some people have an even harder time than others because they are shy or speak very quietly.

Here are some quick tips on how to project:

Step 1: Don’t be afraid to use your voice. In theatre, your voice is your tool. You use it to express emotions and to tell a story. Use your voice and great results will come out of it.

Step 2: Don’t scream. Projection is not a scream. It comes from your lungs and very deep in your throat. When you speak your chest is contributing to a big portion of your projection. Then think about speaking loudly, in a very clear voice.

Step 3: Practice in front of a mirror. See yourself physically speaking loudly. Also speak in front of other people and get tips for them. Most of the time you can’t hear yourself so try to have other people hear it for you.

Step 4: Hear your voice bounce back while you are performing. Most stages (that are indoor) have a concave looking circle at the back of the theatre. This was purposefully made so the actors could hear their voice bounce back. This sounds sort of like an echo. So, if you can hear your voice bounce back then you are speaking loud enough for everyone to hear. If not, try to speak a little louder.

 

How to: Draw an Eye

Ever wanted to draw that realistic eye. Here is a few steps to show you how:

Step 1: To draw a realistic eye you first want to outline the shape of the eye. This step does not have to be perfect. Draw lightly and try to get the basic shape of the eye.

Step 2: Draw the inner circle of the eye. This should be light and not in the middle of the eye. It should come from the eyelid and stretch all the way until almost touching the bottom of the eye.

Step 3: Draw the Pupil and highlight a square in the eye.

Step 4: Next Fill in the Pupil with a light grey and draw the eyelid. This should be close to the eye and very dark.

Step 5: All that is next is lots of shading and highlighting. Remember: Start light and gradually shade darker. The top of the inner circle of the eye should be dark since it is shaded by the eyelid.

Step 6: Add the eyelashes and swoop them up to make a 3D effect. Don’t add too many eyelashes and keep it simple.

Step 7: Add some depth to the inner of the pupil and shade the corners of the eye and the eyelid.

Step 8: Your finished! Congrats! Keep working on your eye if you don’t feel like it is perfect. Practice makes perfect, after all.

Sketches and a Poem: Squid

The Squid:

The Squid dove deep

Into the inky, blue sea

With light shimmering in its eyes

It looked terrified

Swimming fast

Not looking back

The squid disappeared into the black night

Where no one could see

And everyone was free

The Squid stayed with its heart content

Hidden under the pressure of the sea
