How To Write An Audition Script

Hi pals! This is the blog post version of my YouTube video on the same topic (hopefully making this information more accessible for different kinds of learners as well as easier to come back to the check things by having different formats available) I just wanted to go through some things that are really small and simple that help an actor understand your script and character, as well as make it easier for them to learn lines and be more beneficial for the production team. My own training in performing arts and acting, my experience trying to get back into acting and performing in recent years (and the things I have noticed happen quite a lot), as well as my own experience with my Creative Writing BA where we studied script writing etc. have informed this blog and my video. The wording may vary slightly but the gist should remain the same! This is for amateur productions or student led productions, this includes film and stage. I think we all have things we can learn from different roles within our industry which can help inform how we work and make things easier and run more smoothly overall.

Why I Do This At Christmas

Hi pals I wanted to talk about why I hand write and post christmas cards (and sometimes a little gift) this time of year. It takes a lot of energy to remember, and to physically write cards, and it costs to buy cards and post them around the UK and Europe. Are you or your friends even religious? Not particularly. Didn't you say you hated cards, found them pointless, and a waste of money? Yep... What's the point when you can send a message or an e-card? Well, here's my why.

Trans & Nonbinary Music Artist Recommendations

m enjoying compiling lists of music, games, podcasts, youtubers, books, etc. with different themes, and this was one I wanted to share. Some of the people included are well known, some are less well known. I looked at some other lists, and most of them included the same five people or were all genres I don't really listen to myself even though I have a broad and eclectic music taste.
