  • Determining if you are activated
    Are you having thoughts or feelings stimulated further or are they expanding within you?
  • Patience to wait till feelings develop into emotion
    Knowing the difference between having a fleeting moment or an emotion is key.
  • If an overwhelm or exhilaration comes over you and you feel activated or more awake in that certain area something has started working within
  • Put your attention into the Imaginary Circumstance (switch from real life stimulation to imaginary entry)
  • Start an action, a knock on the door or an interaction in your acting.

There are all kinds of trouble shooting techniques in Steps of Emotional Preparation.

Adding Motivation in acting

One trouble shooting technique in Steps of Emotional Preparation is to add Motivation. Add Motivation after you have already felt your emotional activation occur.

Adding Motivation in acting will enhance your experience once entering the Imaginary Circumstance. Motivation will catalyst the emotion or feelings to carry over into the work of the imaginary circumstances.

Adding Motivation at the exact time after you have determined that you have activated an emotion or a strong feeling is key in timing. Otherwise you will be testing differences that may compete with your focus during the Emotional Preparation period.

Basically wait till near the end of your Emotional Preparation Process to add motivation to enhance carrying of life into the imaginary circumstances of acting.

Steps Of Emotional Preparation – First Moment

Preparing Steps of Emotional Preparation for use for the First Moment at the Door or the beginning of a scene is a Traditional way to use Emotions.

Unfortunately, many times Actors only catch an instinct or a fleeting feeling and by the time they DO the Interaction of their acting work it was like they had not even done Emotional Preparation.

The KEY to Emotional Preparation is to 1. Find Emotion and 2. Activate Emotion before doing the Interaction of your acting.

MANY Acting Students as well as Professional Actors forget to activate their Emotions which Simon calls Emotional Activation.

Relying on a process as you introduce this work to yourself is a smart idea as it can help to baseline your learning and development. A Consistent way of achieving Emotional Preparation is to be certain you are doing the hard work of working with Emotions First.

Teacher – This balancing of Steps of Emotional Preparation depths is an element that you continue to adjust. Sometimes the emotional Preparation seems active but in relationship to the other person it is not as strong. Explore that reality and continue to adjust to each other.
Great Directors, only great ones will help you to adjust your depth in your Emotional Preparation, but it is rare to find ones that good enough knowing the work well enough to be able to do that. You must learn in your training to adjust your own Emotional Preparation frequencies and depths.
