The modern technique to bring tears
Please note that even a serial director may appreciate if you can bring out tears with emotions instantly.
How to bring tears?1
Make sure you're not dehydrated. If you are, it will be more difficult for the tears come out.
Hold your eyelids open with your fingers, stay like this for 2 minutes.
Do not get your face into a weird position that feels uncomfortable; instead, relax the muscles in your face.
Think of something sad e.g.
Try to expose your eyes to the air as much as possible. Keep your eyes open as long as you can. Don't close them until tears form under your eyes. Keeping your eyes open will dry them out, making them sting. This is good. Don't close your eyes when they start to hurt or no tears will form.
Try crying along to a movie where the actor is crying, for practice.
Make a crying face, which usually involves closing your eyes. Make wrinkles or creases. Turn the corners of your lips down a little. Try to force the inner corners of your eyebrows upwards. Wrinkle up your chin like people do right before they start a shout or call out noisily
Try yawning repeatedly. This can make your eyes water.
Sometimes you can cry by breathing into the back of your throat rather than down your windpipe, this is how yawning can make you cry as well. Or it might just make you yawn...
Put some Zandu/Vicks balm under your eyes. It may sting, but it is so realistic. Keep it ready with you beforehand.
Try pinching hard in some sensitive parts of your body like the space between your thumb and pointer finger or under your eye and tears will automatically flow down
The most effective way to instantly get your eyes to water, I find, is if you stick your finger down your throat until you gag. However, do not do it more than 3 or 4 times as it could make you throw up.
Good luck for crying
