ACTING TIPS, FOR YOUR CAREER IN BOLLYWOOD – 11
( Through This I wish to share my insights as a trainer with my students and other acting aspirants)
LEARN TO COME ON THE MARK FOR LIGHT AND FOCUS.
While shooting a scene, when an actor has to move from one place to another in the frame or when he /she enters the frame, he /she has to reach a SPECIFIC MARK given to him by DOP’S ( camera man’s ) assistant. This mark is for appropriate light which he/she is receiving and for the focus. So that his/her image is absolutely sharp and clear.
It becomes very tricky for a novice to hit that mark with out looking at it. If he /she shifts his/her eyes to look at the mark, then that would be caught on the camera. So what should the actor do?
Our brain has a unique ability to register and record, spaces and distances. So come on the mark, look at the placements of lights, camera, the distance of your co actors from you, shut your eyes for a moment and mentally record the distances of these objects . Then go to your FIRST MARK and just walk to that ‘Specific mark’ which is also called the FINAL MARK and you will be surprised that you are right on it.
