For this blog post, I’m going to look over the past classes I’ve been to, because I’d like to spend a little more time talking about Stanislavsky. He quickly became fascinating to me, especially because of where I stand on the outside of acting. What interested me the most was how he pieced his system together, structuring it internally within himself and continuously evaluating its results. From research, his creative process seems relatively similar to mine. I’m a very internal person by nature, and so much of my experience is felt emotionally. While sensitivity can be a very powerful block to overcome when I get hurt, the fact that the feelings stay so strongly with me bleeds into my writing. The same goes for acting, I can sense that the potential is there for me to really take it somewhere. As a writer, I understand how so much of that can be worked into my performing, too. I can take the social interactions, character dynamics, and re-create them in my writing, but there is something that I can’t quite transfer into my performance, and even my everyday conversation. I haven’t quite figured out how to control the critical part of myself, because it consistently exceeds its purpose and turns into simple insecurity. In closing, I have all the parts I need to method act, but the only thing I’m missing is the determination and the courage to overcome failure. Persistence is something I need to introduce into many aspects of my life.
