I live a very adventure filled life, anything involving an adrenaline rush is just what i love. Ever since i was young i have been outgoing, adventurous, athletic, and coordinated. I have always been a very fast learner and am willing to try just about anything and most likely become good at, i love sports including team sports and extreme sports. Growing up i was always getting injured from doing crazy things that sometimes probably were not the smartest things to do, but it has made me the person i am today. I played baseball from when i was about 6 to my freshman year of high school but then i moved on to hip hop dancing and mixed martial arts, but i was mainly a boxer. I am currently working towards getting my skydive and scuba diving certifications. I plan to travel the world and get paid while i do it because there is an entire beautiful planet out there that we just happen to be able to live on and i will not die knowing i only saw one small part.

After 21 days of filming in the beautiful Dunkirk, NY on the shoreline of Lake Erie, the feature film Lighthouse Unmanned goes into post production. It's been a pleasure getting to know and collaborate with such a talented, motivated, and generous cast and crew. As things slow down ever so slightly in leu of the Holiday Seasons, I'm finding myself both thankful for the opportunities that have allowed me to travel these past four months and the experiences they've provided to both re-connect with old friends, connect with new ones, and to work in the craft I am fortunate enough to call my profession. I'll be continuing on my re-writes for the feature I'm writing (set to begin filming in Summer/Fall of 2017), but in the meantime, I'm already on the hunt for the next collaboration that gives me cause to travel and opportunity to grow as an actor.

<p> I started my life as an Extra. I studied ancient arts in culture and studied civilisations of lifestyle and how movement of dance helps the art or performance in general. I spent countless  hrs  of studying dance and movement, the fundamental basic to acting. A performer has to appear natural  to his craft. As well on screen which gives screen presence and a natural  gift not only for acting, but to learn the movement of ballet , tribal dance and soul. The African people have rhythm and often natural warm people, who have a heart of Gold, to learn their culture and other cultures, is a learning stick, the Chinese theatre is where martial arts legend Bruce lee started his training, his movement is refined, and the actor has to be refined when approaching scripts as well at auditions,a performer has to learn to be well mannered of his craft. and nurture it like the ancient Chinese. Monks.and be genuinely honest when  auditing for a role </p>

<p> In a character study blog page on my web-site. I like to write down a 'report' on myself when I am close to First night, anyway. It's kind of a memory exercise on how I have built up the character, and what I am doing to retain it during the run of the production. I am hoping that, by writing this down and sharing it with readers, I am showing a professional approach to characterisation that shows people how I adapt my training to the production itself.</p> <p> Of course, it also allows me to add new content to the website itself, which is a key to better rankings. Let me know what you think:</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="!character-study-blog/c1bn4">Vancouver Middle-Aged Character Actor</a></p>

<p> I have taken acting classes, watched every movie and show I could get my hands on, and have studied the subject for as long as I can remember. I have professionally spoke publicly, but I want to progress to acting. I feel like an acting career will help me grow and become what I was meant to be, because I am often told that acting is the perfect profession for me and I would like to indulge in it.</p>

<p> Auditions are rough. Particularly if you suffer from nerves. </p> <p> I suffer from nerves. They make my voice strained and my breathing shallow. I go pale and I shake. My performance is sort of wooden and inconsistent, or consistently bad. </p> <p> I admit I am not the best judge of my own performance, ever, but I know how it feels, and I know that the auditions I am relaxed and confident are the auditions that I get the gig from. </p> <p> So how can you control something like 'nerves?' </p> <p> ATTITUDE! </p> <p> When I am nervous and performing badly, I can't really blame my nerves. Nerves can, of course, ruin even the best laid plans. However, nerves are the result of stimulus that can manifest itself as excitement or anxiety. If I'm nervous during an audition and my throat goes dry, even if Im prepared, that's going to make things difficult for me. But If I interpret my dry throat as a sign that I'm excited, I can overcome them with confidence and energy. With the right attitude, shaking, a palid complexion and a dry throat can be channeled into your performance and even into your character.</p> <p> Nerves are often a sign that I haven't prepared properly. </p> <p> PREPARATION!</p> <p> Learn the lines:</p> <p> Which casting director isn't going to be impressed or at least relieved that you learnt the lines? Even if you weren't required to. And how much better do you feel when you're acting with someone and making eye contact, putting meaning into the lines, rather than just reading off the page? No matter how good you are at cold reading, it's usually so much more dynamic and a better performance if you learn the lines! </p> <p> Explore character: </p> <p> It doesn't have to be a whole character bio but at least be familiar with your character on more than the superficial level. You need to know the character's objective and motivations. Don't be that guy who just lifts the character's Facebook profile. Use your personal experience, your knowledge of humanity and any relevant research to inform your characterisation. Be familiar with the language of the character. If they speak French, you'd better know what those lines mean. </p> <p> Optimise your tool:</p> <p> You need to practice breathing deep full breaths from your diaphragm. That will help with the nerves and when you're breathing properly you won't be able to hold as much tension in your throat: that will help with the small high pitched weak voice that nerves bestow upon you. Loosen your jaw. Shake your body. Take the feeling of butterflies in your tummy or tingling in your limbs and use it to energise you. Start to treat your symptoms of nervousness as your dynamic edge, trust that these feelings will empower you and help your performance and go away when they have done their job. Use it as a sign that you need to concentrate and focus on your character and lines. </p> <p> Put yourself in a position to take charge of the room:</p> <p> Be on time. Be personable, accessable and professional. Familiarise yourself with the space. Claim your performance space. Take your time. Interpret the character from a place of authenticity and authority. Take direction. Lead the interview. Relax. Keep in mind that you are auditioning them, too. Be self-assured. There are no mistakes, just exercises and opportunities.</p> <p> Dress for the part:</p> <p> Don't bring a costume just keep the role in mind and present your interpretation of the character. Dress comfortably, though. If you don't wear heels but your character does, you'll have plenty of time to learn to walk in heels later, for now, just wear something that portrays a similar sense of sexiness, professionalism or whatever it is that high heels are supposed to represent. </p> <p> I don't do this everytime. Sometimes I do it and don't get a callback. Other times I don't do it and do get a callback. But this is best practice for actors, anyway. </p> <p> I was told by a director that I respect very much that my voice lets me down. That's my weakness. Because he was honest with me I am able to improve this. Next time it won't be my weakness. Hopefully, I won't have one.  But he also said that my nerves affected me so much that he didn't know what I was capable of in performance. Directors are used to seeing nerves. They don't judge you for being nervous. They want you to do well and they understand anxiety. But you have to perform through your nerves because sometimes directors simply can't see what you're capable of behind the nerves. If your nervousness is seriously cramping your style and the above strategies of attitude adjustment and preparation don't help there are still things you can try. Don't give up.</p> <p> Hypnosis or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help to calm your nerves and overcome their symptoms. It is a long term answer and is only as effective as the doctor and patient. But it could have empowering and dramatic results.</p> <p> A Beta-blocker is a drug that is often prescribed to musicians and stops nervousness. Apparently it feels like you're uninspired and it's difficult to truly guage your performance. It's a short term, temporary measure. It would require extensive preparation to overcome the feeling of being uninspired but actors are notoriously bad are rating their own performances accurately so this probably wouldn't affect that aspect too much. This would be the most effective and immediate answer to nerves. </p> <p> Nothing beats practice. Audition often and you'll eventually audition well. I know my nerves are never as bad during a performance because we've run the performance many times. But it might be worthwhile acknowledging that sometimes my performance can be lacklustre because I don't have nerves.</p> <p> Remember: nerves aren't all bad. Sometimes they provide that little spark that lights up the whole show! </p> <p> Tell me how you manage your nerves, I'm always desperate for more strategies!</p>

<p> Creative people just don't get paid enough! </p> <p> Our work is sought for by thousands in a million different ways but not valued enough to monetize. Why?</p> <p> My best friend is a writer. He has two novels, hundreds of short stories, poems and feature articles published and has written a number of short films and feature films, many of which he has made. He is an expert at After Effects, editing and cinematography. He's also a freelancer. That makes his life tricky because when he searches for jobs online or even with existing contacts, he's competing with hundreds of less experienced or expert individuals that desperately want to make a name for themself and will do the same job (possibly of an inferior standard but possibly very well done, too) for free. FREE! Who can compete with that? </p> <p> And the internet hasn't helped. It's made finding work and jobs that do exist easier but every man and his dog is looking for the same work, regardless of qualification or quality of their portfolio. There's also the little problem of so much online media not being monetized so even if they rely on the work of writers, the writer's shouldn't expect to be paid. I find this appalling. But it's the cause of some major paradoxes. Mainstream magazines that do pay are commissioning work from unimaginative, uneducated writers who don't even know how to use spell check- why? I don't know, you tell me! And prestigious magazines and quarterlies that do rely on quality material and have very fussy guidelines don't often pay you for your work. Why? I DON'T FREAKING KNOW!!!!</p> <p> According to an article online (as a consumer I use online materials because they're free and up to date: could be a contributing factor) writers are getting paid an average of $11 000 a year. That's full time writers. Getting below the poverty line for their years and years worth of training, experience and expertise. That's not cool! </p> <p> But it's not restricted to writers. Film makers, including actors, are constantly being sought after to produce work for free so they can have something for their showreel. Something for their portfolio. Another line for their CV! After two and a half years of freebies I've got quite enough lines on my CV, thanks. And I've got hours and hours of student and experimental film footage with poor lighting and even poorer sound quality for my awesome showreel, thanks. When are you going to start paying us, guys? </p> <p> I'm personally quite content. I get paid for my acting work more often than not these days. I am able to pick and choose projects that I'm genuinely interested in and believe in the quality of the work than just to get experience. My apprenticeship is heading toward its conclusion. But I'm still doing a lot of jobs free and I know a lot of actors that are still working almost exclusively free. So what can we do about it?</p> <p> Stop. </p> <p> Yes, at first they'll just go to that annoying actress that will do anything for anyone because she wants the experience and has unending time and energy. But eventually she'll get fed up with it too, and she'll have been in everything and the producers and bands and commercials and event holders will be fed up with her. In short, if we boycott non-paying producers then they'll only get beginners to do their free of charge work and eventually, not immediately, our cry for financial validation will be heard. </p> <p> They will only keep asking us to work for free as long as they know that we will. Don't silently stand back from unpaid offers. Decline and express exactly why you're declining. This is your job and you deserve to be paid. If they want mate's rates they'd better be a mate, otherwise it's full fee paying places only, buddy. </p> <p> Here is the link to some articles, free of charge, that make this point even more eloquently. </p> <p> By an essayist called Tim,</p> <p> And in response:</p> <p> A big deal:</p> <p> Some food for thought about where you get your content:</p> <p> So make a stand. </p> <p> Peace.</p> <p>  </p> <p> MK</p>

<p> You would be forgiven for thinking that I'm a narcissist. A couple of years ago I thought I might have Histrionic Personality Disorder. Apparently this is a common diagnosis among actresses and an even more common misdiagnosis. Anyway, I don't have HPD but if I did, I probably wouldn't be that diffferent to how I am now. </p> <p> I opened a discussion with some creative artistic people at a Perth Actors Collective post-workshop networking drink about my theory (that was stolen from many greater thinkers) that each creative profession, indeed each profession, has a pet psychological disorder. </p> <p> I was speaking to a practicing lawyer-come-actor when I asked her what the lawyer's neurosis was. There was stunned silence until I explained my theory. Happily the mentor/tutor knew what I was referring to and backed up my argument. Apparently lawyers suffer from narcissisim too, and anxiety. </p> <p> So the discussion continued and we concluded that, probably, actors were predisposed to narcissism, writers to melancholy and depression, directors to narcissim, anxiety and melancholy. So directors relate best to depressed lawyers. </p> <p> This is a broad generalisation. An exercise in prejudice. And I only engage with it for fun because really, I feel indignant at the way that actresses in particular are perceived as hysterical, precious poppets. In a recent farce that my partner was cast in, the male characters kept referring to actresses in a pejorative sense, "You know actresses... you know what they're like..." It's fine for comedy, but not in real life, and unfortunately too many industry members have the impression that this cliche is based on reality. Maybe in Hollywood, though I doubt that, too. I'm an actress, and proud of it, but I am not hysterical or precious or particularly narcissistic. In fact, I'd say most actors that I'm familiar with (and I use actors to encompass all sexes and genders) actually struggle with low self-esteem, self-doubt, depression, anxiety, rage and boredom, without ever becoming narcissistic or hysterical or precious. The way that performers are treated like somehow because they express themselves creatively through their bodies that they are shallow and don't experience genuine or valid emotional lives is the farce. The way that we are often rejected and marginalised because of our creative choices is the disorder. But it's a social disorder, not a neurological disorder. The fact that Mr. Paxman thinks that pointing out that Russel Brand is an actor and comedian will discredit and disqualify him from being a political commentator is sadly symptomatic of our society's attidude. </p> <p> We don't like celebrity activists because we feel like they're taking advantage of their position in the media to preach. Or, even worse, they've only adopted a cause to raise their profile further or make themselves look good.</p> <p> But who gives a crap? If a lawyer feels passionately about something and uses their resources to contribute to the cause no one bats an eyelid. They'd get negative feedback if they DIDN'T abuse their postition for a good cause. If a teacher does it, same story. Accountant, same story... so why are actors expected to shut up unless they've been handed a script? </p> <p> As actors we get a lot of flack for being 'divas' even though all the actors I know are compassionate, warm, self-deprecating and professional individuals. I don't think we are narcissists. We use our egos as shields because we exist in a paradigm that demands that we're constantly begging to be picked by other more powerful individuals. We depend on others approving of us to get work, most human beings don't have this situation to the same extent as actors. So if we come across as full of ourselves, we're just trying to fool the panel behind the audition desk. </p> <p> For an insight into the mind of a professional Australian actor of film, TV and theatre catch this Catching Sight interview with Geoff Miethe. </p> <p></p>

<p> I don't know if you know but my early years were spent watching films that were really too mature for me and usually with the sound down so my step-father could listen to his FM stereo on high volume. I got quite good at lip-reading. It's a skill but it fades without practice. </p> <p> One of the films that I got to watch, several times and with the sound on audible, if not full, volume was <em>Moll Flanders. </em>This film was written and directed by Pen Densham. I met Pen, entirely by accident, at a conference in LA. I'm not a funky LA starlet or even a particularly ambitious Perth actor who made the trek to LA to meet with casting directors or audition for the pilot season. I did do an hour's acting coaching with Stan Kirsch (Ricky from Highlander) which was great, but mostly I was there for a holiday and a few promotional gigs with my boyfriend for his newly released Master Shots eBooks. I just happened to feature in the enhanced video illustrations. </p> <p> So I was at the Story conference at the Michael Wiese stall, having a breather in between floods of potential Master Shots customers when I started chatting to the author of Riding the Alligator. Pen, as he introduced himself, was friendly and effusive about his passion for story and the professional creative lifestyle but quietly spoken. And very tall. That's not relevant, sure, but as a short-assed pixie, it will be my lasting impression of the 'Englishman by birth, Canadian by choice, American by circumstance.'</p> <p> A few weeks later I opened his book and by the time I got through the introduction, I was squealing, "Chris! Pen wrote and directed Moll Flanders! MOLL FLANDERS!" He smiled and nodded. This was clearly a big deal to me. To be honest, I probably shouldn't have been that starstruck (as delayed as it was) because Chris is the best selling author of Master Shots and is quite the celebrity himself. And I loved his films Pilotage and The Sculptor's Ritual. But this was the writer and director of MOLL bloody FLANDERS! I couldn't help but be all impressed and affected. </p> <p> And it's because Robin Wright's portrayal of Moll that I wanted to be an orphan, nun, charity worker, prostitute, live model, mother, shipwreck survivor and milionaire!  (Sorry about the spoilers! But at least the first time you watch it you get to have the sound up.) That's awesome team work. Pen and Robin Wright created my most cherished character (until Lay-Lu in The Fifth Element, but Moll wasn't usurped, just accompanied)!</p> <p> So of course, I had to email Pen. And unexpectedly he answered. He is such a humble and genuine man, it is such a pleasure to know him and I really do encourage you to become familiar with his work because he is so passionate and talented. He is also a fantastic motivator and encourager and in that strain I invite you to read his blog contribution, which also links to his other contributions on creativity and success! </p> <p></p> <p> Love, </p> <p> MK</p> <p> *Pen as in writing and Pen as in Pen Densham! Get it? </p>
