Get Real

Author: Preston Smith

The best reactions are real reactions. Reactions that aren’t planned are real. When you plan a reaction you usually stop listening to what your scene partner is doing or saying.

Be honest and real. If something that is said in a scene shocks you, say it, act shocked. If something in the scene makes you sad, act sad… don’t ignore those natural impulses that hit you in a scene.

If you are “in character” and emotionally invested in the scene… natural reactions will keep the reality of the scene and will help you find the funny, not force the funny.
