Today we had self directed all day and I spent most of the morning looking at an audition script for the Media students project. I also went to see Lewis for a singing lesson, he gave me some tips on how to improve volume for example leaning back and grounding yourself, test your posture against a wall and he also told me I need to get used to the timings so for the rest of the day I spent annotating my script, I find that this really helps me for memorizing lines and remembering what I did when it felt comfortable. I was also listening to the song and counting the beats between each line.
In the first and second verse there is two beats between each line and when it moves to the chorus there is only a brief beat, I need to listen to the song more and to stop practicing it Capella style so I can get the timings right.
During lunch I went to the media students to audition for a part in their project. It was only a short scene but I really felt the emotion of the character and I did some character research and I tried to act cold but the scene was written for the character to be in love, so I needed to warm up.
