I Found the Actor focuses rather humorously on finding the actor inside of you even if you didn’t know it was there. Again and again you are enticed, teased to win the tussle that will eventually make you stronger. The stage is yours if you are willing to grow, observe, think and go for it. Let go of all preconceived ideas, dust the cobwebs and explode into an actor who is well able. The message is simple, understand for yourself what it is going to take to be an actor and then do it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Knower Peace.

What´s unusual about this audiobook on acting? Jesse Vint wrote this book because he found, strangely enough, almost no books about film acting by people who have actually made a living at acting in film. Almost all are written by non-professional actors. It´s tantamount to learning from the sailor who has never been to sea, the soldier who has never been to war, or the cowboy who has never ridden a horse. In other words, they are coffee-shop geniuses. Jesse is a veteran of over 100 films and television shows. He has also produced, directed, and written full-length feature films that have played throughout the world. Quote from Oscar Nominee, David Carradine, from his book about the shooting of Quentin Tarantino´s film, Kill Bill: ´´Jesse Vint is a very cool and wise dude.´´ Jesse shows actors how to internalize. Once they listen to this audiobook, they will have a clarity about acting and what it is that they have never had before, regardless of how long they´ve studied. Jesse covers subjects such as: What makes a star Traps in acting Rehearsals The essence of script analysis: moving the information from head to heart Locating your hot buttons Strategy for stressful auditions The problem of anticipation Preparation before the director says ´´action´´ Jesse says that the writer provides the words, the director is the cinematic storyteller, and it is the actor´s job to activate his soul in a manner consistent with the character. That is what an actor gets paid for. An actor can speak with an accent, walk with a limp, or strap on a false nose, but these things mean absolutely nothing if the part is not internalized. If the actor does these things without internalizing, then that´s not acting - that´s Halloween. A movie is not everyday life - it is a compression of highly intense experiences. An actor must know the engine that´s driving him 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jesse Vint. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/104401/bk_acx0_104401_sample.mp3.

This is a story from the In the Ravine and Other Stories collection. Anton Chekhov, one of the finest masters of what is acknowledged as a difficult genre. There is the richly comic ´´Oh! The Public´´ about a hassled ticket inspector, a wry look at morals and manners in ´´The Chorus Girl´´, and the melancholic tale of a cab driver in ´´Misery´´. Perhaps the finest of all is the novella ´´In The Ravine´´, a minutely observed look at life in a village through the eyes of one family. All the characters come to life with their foibles, their strengths, and their hopes. Kenneth Branagh uses his natural talent for characterisation to bring this village to life. The other short stories in this collection are: ´´The Trousseau´´, ´´A Story Without a Title´´, ´´Children´´, ´´Fat and Thin´´, ´´The Beggar´´, ´´Hush!´´, ´´The Orator´´, and ´´An Actor´s End´´. 1.
