New Fun Activity

I forgot to mention this! I meant to post about it here when I posted to my YouTube channel but I’m going to be trying to do this weekly. Every Wednesday or so I’m going to do a “cold read” of a script I have in a book or that I find online. I haven’t read any of the ones from my books beforehand, otherwise they wouldn’t be “cold reads”.

What is a cold read? When you go to audition you’ll sometimes have to do one of these. They give you a script you’ve not seen before, you get a moment to look it over, and then you do the scene. It can be difficult to do since you don’t get a lot of time to prepare. So how can you get better at it? Practice!

Practicing cold reads is one of my favorite activities. I find it to be tremendously fun. I thought I’d do some video recordings of my cold read practice. If you want to do a video too feel free to send it to me! I’d love to see it. I’d also love new scripts so if you know of any send them my way too.

Merry Christmas!

Happy holidays. I know there are a lot of denominations that celebrate this time of year, and New Years is coming up too, so if you are celebrating anything have fun and be safe.

I know it’s common to overindulge but if you do don’t drive drunk! It isn’t worth it. The price you’ll pay if you get into an accident or get caught is going to be far higher than if you just got a cab.
