it was fun in class to imagine feeling and touching something that really did not exist.. at home when i tried the same exercise, this time physically touching my laptop with my eyes closed, I felt as if I am "seeing" it in a different way than usual. it brought to mind that we so often take the gift of our senses for granted.. thank you for helping me realize how lucky I am to have all my senses intact..
Today at 2:00 a.m. I was sitting in my room contemplating what to write about. All that I could think about was how much fun I've had throughout the first week of class. My mother has always told me how good I would be at acting mostly because I'm somewhat good at impressions, at least she thinks so. I've never really considered a job in acting because I never thought I would be any good at it but throughout class I've started to tone in on different aspects of how a good actor works by noticing his surroundings and listening to everything that is going on around him. I'm looking forward to class today so that I can learn more about how to become a good actor.
My day alright so if were supposed to write about anything I guess I'll write about why I like my favorite actors because this is an acting class. My two favorite actors are Jamie Kennedy and Matt Damon. I like the two for completly different reasons but I guess thats because sometimes i'm in the mood for a comedy and sometimes I'm in the mood for a drama. I just am astounded at how similar my sense of humor is with Jamie Kennedy's. If I was told to write the script that I would consider the best ever it is Malibu's Most Wanted. I wouldn't change a thing. That is the perfect role for me and he was amazing in it. I also loved the Jamie Kennedy expiriment. I would have to say Matt Damon is my favorite serious actor because he can play so many different roles. He broke in playing a misguided genious in Good Will Hunting then moved on to movies like Rounders where he played a card hustler and became a action hero in the Bourne Supremecy. He also starred in the Ocean's 11 series where he teamed up with a who's who cast of Hollywood actors I just wish they could have written Jamie Kennedy in somewhere.
so im not going to lie but i really liked the mirror exercise. i've done it a few times in the past and i don't think i had enjoyed it as much as i did on tuesday. it felt really relaxing to me and i really felt myself getting into it which was a really cool feeling. i was staring straight into the eyes of my partner and i almost felt like we were one person as we shared the same movements and i think that that feeling of connection and comfort was just really soothing for me. the motions i performed did remind me of drills we would do in the pool and i really like being in the water which also calms me down. so i think the fluid movements of my body and the connection between my partner was amazing and i can't wait to do it again.
