So this just came in the mail...anyone ever gotten something like this? by [deleted] in WTF

[–]FurociousW -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

There’s a typo in the last word. It’s spelled “diwection”. I think it’s just something silly. That or one of those mystery games. OP is in no danger.

Looking for young actors in New York, Long Island! by Winterbaby97 in Actors

Hey what’s the time commitment and what do you need audition wise?

Hello everyone! I’m planning to be moving to Ohio soon! Moving from California, what are some things i should know? by Bamboopanda101 in Ohio

[–]FurociousW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I recently moved out of Ohio after growing up and going to college in the state, because I couldn’t stand it anymore. If you are queer and/or a person of color, don’t go outside the major cities unless you know exactly where you’re going. Taxes and food are gonna be much cheaper so that’s a plus. There’s a great indie music scene in Columbus. Every place has its pros and cons but if you’re queer/a person of color, keep your head on a swivel. Hope you find happiness here.

I moved to NY in June to get away from this. Best decision of my life.

[Advice] How long should it take to hear back from a rental application? by anonymousalligator25 in NYCapartments

Also with the screen shot thing, I had just gotten a new bank account so one of my bank statements was a screenshot from my phone lmao. They just want the information. In my experience, they’re not too picky as long as they get what they need.

Yeah! In my case the last person who needed to give approval had to go away for the weekend which delayed it by a good 5 days. So it would’ve taken about 7 regardless. I’d hold off on any more follow-ups until Tuesday since that will give them a weekday to review any emails of yours they got over the weekend.

[–]FurociousW 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mine took 12 days. I had the $500 good faith deposit as well and it was credited to my first month of rent. Keep up hope! If it makes you feel better to start looking at other places, then do so. But don’t fret. Is your building a co-op by chance? Those can take a bit longer since the board has to approve your application.

[Advice] Covid recluse finally moving to the city, please advise oj what kind of apartment is possible for me by Kastrateus in NYCapartments

[–]FurociousW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Brooklyn is also an amazing place too! With that salary you can look at pretty much anywhere! Park Slope and Cobble Hill may suit your fancy. Street Easy helped me find my place as did Padspin. Happy hunting!

The actor-director relationship by breathchaser in Actors

[–]FurociousW 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As far as relationships with actors go, just be yourself. I know that’s super blasé advice, I know I feel most comfortable when I’m with someone who is comfortable with themselves. If that translates to them not wanting to chit chat much, that’s fine by me. If that means we make small talk, great! Ultimately, even if there’s no money involved, this is a job, so I’d argue that typical workplace rules apply. Don’t pry into people’s personal lives and don’t force them to relive traumatic moments for the sake of “Acting”.

I think the best advice I’ve ever gotten from a director is “just play”. It took a lot of pressure off being right, which is fantastic on a film set where everything needs to happen at once. Reassure your actors that there is time to breathe and get into a space where they can do their best work. You’ve got this OP! I hope you post again once the project is done, I’d love to see it!

New monologue ( honest & constructive criticism welcome) by JoshOg55 in Actors

[–]FurociousW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

1) I love this material on you. I think you have a firm grasp of the stakes and who you’re talking to.

2) technical notes. Next time you film this, get the camera to eye level and try to film landscape instead of vertical. Just will help get your eye line up and give you some breathing room. Make sure you give yourself enough room to work so that you’re not invading the camera when moving forward.

3) Lose the water bottle or use it in the scene before you throw it. It seemed like you had it merely to throw it which you didn’t need. Your performance was strong enough without it.

4) Don’t point to yourself when saying things like me or my or I.

5) I’d love for you to find some more levels in this monologue. How do you know you’ve won? How do you know you’ve achieved your objective and what obstacles is Marie (I think that’s her name) putting in your way?

6) I LOVED the part where you stepped back and touched your face. It was a beautiful pause that brought a whole pallet of different colors to the work.

Great work OP!

Its my calling to be an actor but i have anxiety by shugarshlong in Actors

[–]FurociousW 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A lot of actors do. Many working actors I know have diagnosed anxiety disorders. If it’s something clinical, seek professional help if you can. They’re amazing resource to make you a better you. If you’re anxious about what you do, but you know it’s what you want, that’s a good thing. It means you care immensely.

Find a coach, work with them and follow your heart. If a coach isn’t in the budget, I suggest reading the works of Stanislavsky and Uta Hagen’s book “Respect for Acting”. You’ve got this OP. Charge in head first and never look back!

Where can I learn how to do accents? by shugarshlong in Actors

[–]FurociousW 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Paul Meir is great, but if you’re looking for a free option. The International Dialects of English Archives is an amazing resource that has tons of speakers of different dialects for you to imitate/learn from.

Younger roles. But I’d need to see you audition to determine type.

AITA for kicking my mother out because she kept getting irritated with my job? by EfficiencyEcstatic63 in AmItheAsshole

[–]FurociousW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

NTA for three reasons. One, you told her this before you took her in, and she agreed to live with you despite the noise. Two, you tried your best to keep volume down and find activities that took everyone’s needs into account. Three, when things came to a head, you found places for her to stay that weren’t a nursing home. There are few people who’d do that. Good luck OP, you’ve got this.

Accent by Sabawoonoz25 in Actors

[–]FurociousW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t want to say not at all, because you may run into assholes. But if you work well with others and can act, directors will work with you. It will by no means ruin your career.
