Lecture 1 Fundamental Skills Youtube video of Dustin Hoffman http://www.youtube.com/watch? (first three minutes) and Meryl Streep http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pha-aouBlo (start at 1m44sec in and to the end) talking about why people want to be actors. Look on youtube under Dustin Hoffman + Inside the Actors Studio block 9 and see what he says later in the interview about why he is an actor. All students handed in a questionnaire available on blackboard Course Documents. Discussion followed about the structure of the course and the other instructors were introduced. Then the class discussed fundamental skills. To be an actor one needs to have: Your own identity and self knowledge-awareness and attention Curiosity –being a detective. empathy with others-observation and personalization Imagination—the ability to respond to imaginary circumstances believably Ability to “read” others Spontaneity and open response to others Ability to say “Here I am, Look at me”
