Why Actors Use Independent Activities
Acting craft requires concentration. Independent Activities are also called Meisner Activities or Independent Doings. They are the involved doing that Actors achieve results by concentrating upon. You could be building a house of cards for your nephews science project or fixing a broken tire to your motorcycle. The more Actors are involved the more seems to come out of them from their Talent.
Independent Activities Builds Concentration
Active concentration causes Actors to forget about their acting and leap into the interaction of Doing. The creativity of involvement is the key that unlocks internal emotion from within. The artistic Actor finds ways to improve their scenes by finding doings that match the context and meaning of their acting scene work.
Independent Films Requires Actors Doing
The often missed about details of Acting Activities are the difference between faking and reality in film. Really fixing that tire for your wife’s motorcycle expressing meaning while the doing is involved. This sparks Independent Films scenes to have context of inner emotional life and texture. Films that require actors to be involved often have more involved audiences.
Doing is Interaction to the Film Actor
The key to doing is to understand: Doing is Interaction. If you are doing a doing just to match a motion to a scene instead try to do a doing to interact within the imaginary circumstances. By involved doing of interaction your talent will leap into human exchange. The Director will feel your performance because your performance will be a real-time experience.
Big Names Practice with Independent Activities
It is an absolute fact that Big Names practice with Independent Activities. As small knit as the film industry is often Actors are given parts because of their work ethic and who they know. After receiving news of an upcoming part Actors will hit rehearsals and classroom training to find life within themselves of what they know they will need in the film.
Big Names take Leaps with Big Independent Activities that build up their concentration and focus. Being able to complete the task of truthfully getting a completion of a Doing done builds up the Actors confidence.
Theatrical names also rehearse and utilize Independent Activities to both find work in acting and rehearse after the investor has given the green light.

Acting classes are for famous people and not so famous people. Indie Films often create an intentional obstacle for the Actors to capture reactions for the filming. In successful films the acting process of how an Actor rehearsals shows the habitual outlet of their acting.
If you add the pressure of getting and activity done in your acting you gain the weight of pressure that an imaginary circumstance requires you within a scene. The perfect condition to construct for yourself in your rehearsals are creative similarities to your scenes. This means to set up improvisations that will have you given task to heighten your focus.

The Star of an Independent Actor is their Doing
Many Actors look at themselves as the Star of pictures or Independent Films. However if you focus on the doing you can get to work on what makes moments happen within your Imaginary Circumstances. Your job is not to think of yourself but rather to add value to the production. If you are considering things within yourself that add to the production you are definitely going to be an asset to the production. Too often scenes that Actors think are fantastic get left out of the final edit because they treated themselves like the star instead of treating the interaction as the star of the picture.
By focusing on talent you will help yourself work as well as you are able with your full abilities.
