Characterization question

I posted this question in the screenwriting lounge, but I thought this would be a good place to.

I finished the first draft of a script which has in it a 17 year-old-girl with DID (multiple personalities disorder). I'm getting ready to do my first revision and I was thinking about whether or not I sh Expand post

I think it is a goid idea to add a hint or two about what might be coming, is a good idea. It builds up suspense towards the climax without giving away too much prematurity. Leave the rest to the actress. Let us know how it goes.

Reel

Hey what's up Stage 32. As actors we know a major tool in getting booked is having a reel to showcase your work. Can anyone help me connect with someone that does reels in the LA area?

Stephen Foster

and you can contact Paul Preston. https://www.facebook.com/DigitalMindProductions/

Clark Lewis

Thanks for the info.

G.S. Ford

I'd be happy to film a scene for you.

The Greatest Monologues

Okay, clearly we are all going to have our own opinions, but I'd LOVE to hear from you - what do you think are some of the best monologues? You can choose either written, performed or both.

Do you agree with this list? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Urqg0Krm0A...

My monologue that I always keep in my back pocket is Tim Roth in 4 Rooms. One of my favorites, when he quits his job right before he enters the penthouse suite with Quentin Tarantino.

I manned up this year!

I took this down time to put together pitches for my screenplays and got the footage from all my indie work! This made me feel so awesome after the hell of 2019!

What's the best acting advice you've ever received?

I'm collecting the best acting advice to potentially be included in my 2nd e-book, Awesome Scripts For Young Actors (13-30 yrs). So what's the absolute first thing that comes to mind when you think of helpful acting advice. Cheers for your inspiration!

Sarah Dawn Kelly

Especially with Screen Acting, it is VITAL that you listen to the other actor-the audience will learn from your reactions more than the words being spoken.

"Don't be afraid to fail." Took me a while to really hold on to but you think about all the great performances, how many different iterations of that character did the actor fail with until they got it right?

Hi flash. If I was interested. Would we be able to read the script before hand? I have dyslexia and so I’d need to read it a few time before I read it out loud.

Question

Hi everyone! Quick question, when emailing a headshot and resume, is it best in pdf or Microsoft word, or does it not matter? Thanks :)

Kahlid Elijah Tapia

I've always done it in PDF. You never know what settings a person's computer will be at and a MS Word document can be easily disorganized.

Mikul Robins

yes, pdf almost anybody can open these days

Samantha Bowling

Thank you! I will definitely start submitting everything in PDF! :)

Mike Williams

Personally; I agree with pdf also. I've found many people are now split between being Macs and PCs...and although there is a word version for Mac, most use pages and that just doesn't translate at all to those who use PCs...like people like me who can't let go

Stephen Anthony Bailey

PDF always. You never know what the person has on their computer and you never want them to open your file and it be all jumbled! Always play it safe.

Also, a side note. Always be as simple and clear...
