BuzzFeed Videoshoot Acting Tips for You!

  1. Before the Shoot: Research your character and practice their lines as much as possible. Spend time with the script to understand your personality's motivations, wants, and needs. Make sure you are fully aware of the context in which your scenes take place so that you can better inform your acting choices.
  2. During the Shoot: Listen carefully to directions from the director, cinematographer, and other crew members for guidance on how best to deliver a scene. Take direction well and be open to changes or adjustments if necessary. Also, pay close attention to cues such as camera angles, lighting, etc., as these can influence how you should act out any particular scene.
  3. After the Shoot: Stay mindful of what went well and where you could have done better in each scene. Review any footage so you can continue to hone your craft, as the best actors never stop learning. Also, be aware of your inner experience - how did you feel after each take or from different choices or perspectives? It can help inform future performances and give insight into areas for improvement.
  4. Miscellaneous Tips: Always arrive prepared with a positive attitude and an eagerness to try something new. Have confidence in yourself and trust that even if mistakes are made on set, it is all part of the creative process, and things can be worked out in post-production if necessary.
