What is the best way to find ideas for writing?
Start with what interests you. What are you into? What kind of movies or books do you like? What kind of stories interest you? Don't reach to tell a story that you think someone else wants to hear. Start with what you like, with what excites and interests you and you cannot go wrong.
Subject: Film and Theater
What is the most important thing when doing a scene?
Your scene partner! Rather than focusing on yourself and the words you want to get out, focus on making an impact on your scene partner. What is your objective in the scene? How are they reacting? Staying in the moment and connected to your partner is infinitely more important than any of the words.
What is the starting point for learning to be a better speaker and communicator?
The body! The first thing I always work on with people looking to become better speakers and communicators is getting control of their body. The importance of strong breath, a strong stance and a strong voice cannot be over-stated when it comes to feeling confident getting your points across.
