I once had a very powerful agent at a major agency with movie star clients. At the time, I was a “soap star” client making a hefty six figure income. He stopped me one day and asked if I wanted to move on, get to the next level. I thought he was talking about leaving the agency and HIM. No I said, things are going well. He took me aside in his office and we had a heart-to-heart.
“If you want to get to the next level in your career you have to finish your Soap contract and never do another soap!” I was stunned. “Tell them –the agency- that you’ll turn down any future offers. You only want to do Primetime TV and Film roles. You have to say NO!” At the time, I didn’t see it clearly. I thought he was crazy.
money is good, but a six figure income! do not have to walk, right? And I appreciate the roles that I have, I have been nominated for an Emmy! ” He smiled, shrugged and let it go. Obviously I was not going to be a movie star. He scratched his short list. He encouraged me as another actress in the starring role in a movie, I wanted to do. When the call came for the test / test screen, I was on the set of TV series # 1-8 day clock during the night in jail. The actress went to another hearing in my head, got the part and was very successful, a big star. As I understood where he came from.
Sense memory is the most important method of operation.
Sense Memory Sense memory is re-living sensations that were experienced through the five senses. Strasberg stressed the term re-living and not just remembering. The difference lies between knowing something and truly recreating it. That difference is substantiated by psychology.
Have you heard of psychosomatic illness and hypochondria. The mind can do to manifest symptoms and reactions of the body is sick. This applies even if the body is not sick. Sense memory exercises are designed to train him to be, because the body’s response focusing on stimuli associated with the experience of the situation.
Sense memory is using your memory of real objects to create sensory objects on stage. You need a great deal on concentration to create a sensory object. When you can create a sensory object, you can invoke a “real” response. You will be re-living a sensory experience and not demonstrating an experience. From this stimulus that you know isn’t real, suddenly all the other false things become real and you start behaving truthfully. The audience will believe the performance is real because the actor believes it is real. Sense memory creates great truth performance, which is the actors “ability to experience”.
For example, do you know the smell of movie theatre popcorn? When you think of it, do you recall the last movie you saw in the theatre? Does the memory of the smell help trigger other memories? By concentration on the smell, can you recall other aspects of your trip to the theatre? Does concentrating on the smell remind you of the sights and sounds of the theatre? Do the sense memories you recall help you remember the movie, the date and other details? You have recalled the sense memory of the smell of popcorn to re-live the experience of going to the movies.
Smell is the sense most closely associated with memory. It has been shown that smell helps triggers memory recall. Smells become associated with vivid memories.
You must concentrate on the sensory object and it’s stimuli. Do not concentrate on trying to elicit an emotion. Through practice you will learn what sensory objects produce the desired emotional response. Then you must simple devote your focus to produce the sensory object without regard for the emotion. The emotional response will follow naturally.
Again, the choice of the sensory object for a scene is up to you. Ideally, you should choose an object that you have practiced with and you know will provide the appropiate emotional response. If possible, make your choice relevant to the scene as well. The more sensory objects you have practiced, and the more scenes you work, the more skilled you will become. Dozens of scenes are waiting for you to use at the website below. You can download them instantly.
My very worse client…ever…became one of my biggest successes! Is he a movie star? Yes! Is he a household name? Almost! Is he Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise? Not quite! But I respect his privacy as I do with all my clients so he shall remain anonymous for now. When an actor requests an interview for the opportunity to work with me as a Career Coaching client, I always require a headshot and resume first. Is this person serious about their career? I ask. Do they have marketing tools? training? talent? Do I want to spend months of my time helping them? Jason didn’t have any of the above. He had one quality, PERSISTENCE. Even without the requisite resume/headshot he called and pleaded about 20 times tricking my assistant to get through to me on the phone until I gave him an appointment. We met. It was scary. He carried enough weapons to set off alarms in any high rise building in NYC, except mine obviously. He seemed young and enthusiastic but totally ignorant of what an acting career entailed. But the scary part was-He lived almost on the street. He said he had just quit his “gang” but had scars and tattoos all over his face, neck, baldhead, hands…well, it was fascinating! It was hard to understand what he was saying except when he said “my dream-acting career-movies”. Those were almost the only words I could understand. After we met and spoke, I gave him a list of things to do. I told him to take 6 months and complete everything on the list or not come back. These were the things on Jason’s list:Get into an acting class or two, Get speech training,Get a headshot, Get cast in a few off-off b’way plays to build a resume and credits, Lose about 40 pounds-too much pizza and beer, I thought Grow in his hair-he had a young boyish face and was only 18 but looked 28 with the bald head and the weightGet some kind of wardrobe other than army guerilla fatigues and a blood-stained t-shirt…Work on his incomprehensible accent. He was almost impossible to understand and I don’t mean mumbling like the charming Sylvester Stallone. I mean, impossible to understand more than one or two words in a sentence. And the guy wants to be an actor? A communicator?“If you do all these things, you can come back and we’ll talk,” I told him. He answered with confidence, “Whatever it takes!” That I understood. I thought if I wrote out all these requests he’d re-consider acting as a career or just go away. But, no. He came back in 6 months. His hair was grown in, no tattoos-ANYWHERE! He had them removed. That must have been difficult or painful!He was wearing a Ralph Lauren blue oxford shirt and khakis, expensive designer shoes and an Armani jacket. He had a resume which stated he had studied with 4 of New York’s most respected acting teachers. He must have been in class 7 days a week. And he must have spent thousands on voice and speech training. Must have. I could understand what he was saying. He sounded almost like an actor from the Royal Shakespeare Company. He looked like he was about to enter Harvard. I was stunned. This was a guy from the streets who’d been in knife fights and a gang when he last had shown up for an interview. How did you do it, Jason? He just laughed gleefully. He knew I was impressed. “Whatever it takes! He said. I calculated that he must have spent at least $10-20,000 in the last 6 months. God knows where and how he got the funds. I didn’t ask. “Now, can I be your client?” He asked. He performed his monologue for me. He did 5 monologues-one was with an Italian accent, one was Shakespeare, one a sitcom. He was excellent. And he was funny! He could do comedy. I laughed and I actually cried. I was so touched that he did all that. And I was impressed. He really wants to fulfill his dream. “You can be my client,” I said. ” How much? I’ll pay you…whatever it takes!”For FREE, I said…you deserve it. I’ll go to work for you. ”And we did. We wrote scripts for him and shot a demo reel-in 3 very different challenging roles. He was brilliant in each. He must have taken an on-camera class as well. I sent him to our photographer for current headshots. I introduced him to agents and managers at the LA Marathon, which he attended a month later. He got something like 12 offers for representation with major agents and we had to decide with whom he would sign. He got a film within 2 weeks –his screen test blew them away and then another film role and another. This was about 4 years ago. He appeared as a guest star in a few top TV primetime shows-always unbelieveably good. But just a few weeks ago I saw him at a preview screening of a film he’s in. “Jason…it’s amazing …what you’ve done!” Congratulations! I said. “Thanks…only with your help!” he said. What can I tell my other career coaching clients about you? What do you want me to say to them?He laughed and mumbled,”smvlsmvmnvfmm!”What? I couldn’t understand him-it was the way he used to speak. He was putting me on…and laughing. “Whatever it takes!” He winked and walked on. The press scurried to follow as did fans seeking his autograph. So, I tell my current clients…if Jason can do it…what excuse do you have?Successful Marketing!GwynGwyn Gilliss is the Executive Director of TAM, The Actor’s Market, a marketing firm for actors.
