As a television actor, Bryant Foster Seals has spent the past decade working on increasing his camera appeal. And no, that doesn’t mean he has been spending all of his time in the gym. While he exercises to maintain an attractive physique, the type of conditioning we are talking about here isn’t done in a weight room, but rather in a studio. Learning how to act in front of a camera means responding to emotional cues in a natural and immediate manner that sells your character’s emotions to the viewer. Below are some tips on how you can accomplish this difficult task.
Study Your Characters
First, studying your characters is a matter of knowing exactly the type of person your producer and director want you to be in front of the camera. They will usually determine if you are capable of being this person in the audition; but once you are in front of the camera keeping your job is up to you.
Know How to Project Emotion
Not only do good actors portray how a character fells to their audience, but they also sell the ideas that cause that emotion, which ultimately causes the viewers to become emotionally invested in the character. Projecting emotions is a matter of practicing your acting as well as having the courage to abandon your personal emotional state and be fully immersed in that of the character.
