Why it’s time to Quit Acting!

THE QUIT ACTING PHILOSOPHY

Nobody becomes an actor for the love of rejection . You became an actor because when you first discovered it – it was fun. Tools and techniques are created to make what you are doing easier. So, if what you are doing isn’t making  it easier. YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!

Every role you will ever be asked to play at its core is a human being. They say it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill. you have been a human being all of your life. This means you mastered the skill of acting when you were 1 year and 53 and 2/3 days.

ACTING IS TRUTH. And truth by it’s very definition can not be created and it is not imagined. And nothing can become the truth. It is either true or untrue.  The truth can only be revealed.  So, why would the actor spend all their time trying to create, imagine or become a character?

When you Quit Acting you don’t work at  “putting on” a character. You  remove what is keeping your  truth of the character  being seen. What remains is an actor PRESENT. This is when the actor stops doing  a scene or playing a part and is simply BEING in the moment.

 are you ready to Quit Acting

Learning to act from your natural instincts is easy. Allowing yourself to trust it may take a little practice.

With over 30 years experience working in both the creative and business sides of the entertainment industry-  I cant guarantee that when you Quit Acting you will book the next big block buster.

But, I can guarantee  when you Quit Acting you can’t question your talent. You can’t say you don’t fully understand your character, don’t have enough information, or enough time to prepare.  When you Quit Acting you will never forget a line. You  will never waste another audition dealing with a bad  reader or scene partner who doesn’t give you anything to work off of.

As an acting coach my job is not to teach you the “right” way to act. My job  is to show you that if what you are doing for your acting career isn’t getting the right results, or just doesn’t feel right to you-That’s not the way you’re supposed to be acting.

actors and dyslexia

“Only those who think different can truly make a difference.”
Albert Einstein

Nobody see’s thinks, or perceives the world in the same way. Nobody. Whether someone is  diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Sensory Perception Disorder and/or dyslexia, labeled right brained, left brained, or whole brained dominant, visual, kinesthetic or audio, or as an INDIGO or Chrystal child, it’s  important to understand that one size does not and need not fit all, especially in the creative world of acting.

And all the “label” means is that you think, process, or communicate to some degree or another different than others.  Which BTW makes you better equipped as an actor. No offense boring “normals.” As someone who also deals with dyslexia and other learning challenges, Laura tailors individual acting techniques and processes  to your unique learning style.

Tom Cruise, Robin Williams, Keira Knightly, Robert  Downey Jr, didn’t listen when told they could not be actors because of their learning challenges. And neither should you!
