Another day in Hollywoodland! I am so fortunate.

Posted by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro (Creator)

Another incredible day in Hollywoodland!! 3 day workshop with Joan Scheckel blew my mind out of my head - one of the most awkward, challenging, weird, incredible experiences of my creative life to date. Directing is a JOB; a really complicated, magical, incredible alchemist job, that I am learning how to ACTUALLY DO, step by step, beat by beat until it's memorized in my body. And doing really uncomfortable acting exercises, kissing people I wouldn't normally kiss, showing sides of myself I am terrified to show, learning how to NOT smile... WEIRD, HARD, INTENSE. Just the same level of horrifying stuff I am about to ask my actors to do. Great lesson in empathy.  Makes me crazy excited to properly break down my script, cast and MAKE!

Knackered OUT.
