Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

The Right Duet Acting Scene...For You

Choosing The Right Duet Acting Scene

The first thing that you want to do when you are preparing a duet acting scene is to choose material that you respond to personally. This is not to be underestimated; not only will you be spending a lot of time working on this scene, but also be mindful of what stories you feel particularly drawn to because this usually means that you will have a strength in telling them. This doesn’t mean that the scene you choose actually has to have occurred in your life but if you already have a point of view about telling a certain story it will really strengthen your acting.

For example some people love telling the tale of the underdog, others understand and can really relate to a goodbye scene or maybe a scene that deals with death. Others still should really make the most of their natural comedic timing. The main thing to remember is if you choose wisely you will really stand out from the crowd. Once you have done this it is time to get started preparing.

Aside from the importance of choosing the right scene for you, it is also important to choose the right scene partner. Make sure you choose someone who will compliment you and your acting, but most importantly choose someone who is commited to learning the lines, and who is also as committed as you to give the best performance they can.
