EMOTIONAL PREPARATION

The third Level of this work is “Emotional Preparation”.
Emotional Preparation is that thing the actor does with himself before he enters the scene to alter his inner emotional condition. Why does the actor alter it? To create an emotional state that’s appropriate to the circumstances that happened before the scene begins. Meisner said this is the most delicate work of an actor and it takes time to master!

The big question is where will the actor draw his emotional preparation from? And this is where it gets interesting! You will derive your preparations from a very powerful resource which you’ve been using all your life, probably without even realizing it. And that resource is your imagination!

This is a very healthy way in - through fantasizing, daydreaming, using the actor’s imagination! It is very freeing for an actor to do this because he is not locked into what has actually happened to him. It isn’t a question of what did happen, but what might happen, what could be that activates an actor. Once an actor says what if, he can start to daydream and daydreams are as limitless as the imagination itself.

You will learn a specific process of how to use your imagination with people and things that have real meaning to you to alter you emotional condition. It’s a delicate journey and worth every step!

I look forward to taking it with you!
See you soon,
Steven
