  • Ep 12: PLAY FUCKING LOUD w/ Lewis Baumander Apr 21 2018
    Life is nuanced and contradictory, we make the rules up as we go. As actors, we collect tips, tricks and tools to help us slide in and out of the mindsets of different characters on a day-to-day basis, but there is no single method or format that works for all actors across the board. Becoming an actor means becoming a student of as many lifetimes as is possible in order to continually build up your mosaicked understanding of the human condition. We’ve learned just as much about ourselves as we have about our scene work from inside the classrooms of our long-time coach, mentor and friend, Lewis Baumander. Lewis is busier than anyone we know, so we’re especially thankful that he took the time to sit and chat with us about Story, where it comes from and how it differs from culture to culture. He’s the kind of person who knows how to remind you of your own innate abilities and leaves you wanting to drop all the bullshit in your life and pay more attention to the matters that matter. Surround yourself with the people who nudge you towards your dreams because, let’s be honest, they’re the least likely to fuck you up. Here’s one of the best of ‘em! Enjoy!
