Remember, Emotions Affect Attitudes and Behaviors of a character in a script
How to plan and prepare!
- Develop a strong habit of "observation" and concentration of watching people keenly say on the road, bust stand, garden, shops. Note emotions and attitudes exhibited.
- Note down or record on mobile such observation
- Maintain a mental data bank by practicing what you have observed
- When the need arises to create a character from a script, imagine "IF I AM THAT PERSON" how will I behave?
Which produces laughter, makes people happy and gives pleasure. In emotions which are comical, everything is at a higher level, faster and illogical. A bizarre, unexpected and opposite responses could be funny. You need a presence of mind and great timing to play comedy!
