Here’s a monologue that was filmed the other day. The mic is pretty loud for this one, but I’m pretty pleased with how clear the picture is. The monologue is from the film “When Harry Met Sally” – when Sally is reflecting on one of her failed relationships.
Small Domestic Acts Monologue
Wow, it’s been too long since my last post! Things have been crazy busy for me, but I’m working on restructuring my schedule so I’ll have more time for my personal projects. I’m going to dive back into the 100 Monologues project. I have written a few more pieces, but have yet to practice and film them.
Recently I took another acting for film class. Above is one of the monologues I worked on for the class. At the end of the course, the teacher brought in his heavy-duty camera and mic to record our monologues. The above piece is from the play “Small Domestic Acts.”
The class definitely inspired me to get to work with more of my own projects. So you should definitely keep an eye out for more videos coming soon…
Acting for Film Class
I recently took an “Acting for Film” class. We mainly focused on performing monologues for film as well as the stage. Each class we’d work on a different scene or monologue. Then during one of our last classes, we picked a monlogue that we performed while the teacher shot footage of us outside as well as inside.
With the footage from outside, since it was night, my teacher set up some pretty bright lights. I’m a bit disappointed that my face looks washed out on one side, making my head look more rounded. Nevertheless, I enjoyed getting to see what I look like on camera. Below is the footage from outside:
I’ve realized that you learn quite a bit when you film yourself acting and then take a look at the footage. It’s a lot like stepping away from a painting so you can get a better idea of the bigger picture – of how things come together as a whole. My 100 Monologues project will really help me hone my skills since I plan to film each monologue. That way I can critique my work and get a better idea of what I need to do in order to improve.
