Examples of "Good" and "Bad" acting
Let's face it. We see movies and television shows all the time. And some actors make it look SO easy! At least, the good ones do. Want to know the secret? The secret to acting is to "make it look like you are not acting!" Simple, right? Clearly, No! Some people have an easier time doing so than others. YOU KNOW BAD ACTING WHEN YOU SEE IT, and the ability to recognize it can be a powerful tool to help you avoid making the same mistakes. Observe the following video, and see what you think. Sure, chuckle at the absurdity. Then observe it a couple more times, and see if you can identify a few SPECIFIC reasons why the acting is what some may classify as "bad."
This really drives home the point of "less is more". Sometimes a subtle, honest delivery can be more impactful than screaming, slapping the floor, and throwing things. Your Central Players coaching staff ALWAYS encourages you to strive for a more realistic acting/presentation performance.
