Damon with Actors in Action
It was a really great class.
Damon was really professional, although I think I asked so many questions that he wasn't able to get all the things that he wanted to into the lesson. Sorry, Damon.
But the questions that he answered were very helpful.
He is both a teacher and an agent. You may remember that I wrote about him in the post about Meals for Monologues. He was the one that laughed during my monologue which really validated my efforts during that moment of heightened anxiety.
One of the things I was surprised to hear was that almost every time people will ask you to tell them about yourself. He suggested writing up a two minute blip about yourself, memorize it and try to think of at least one thing that will make you memorable to add to the blip so they have something to associate with you.
I think this is really great information. I am working on my blip and memorable piece of information.
There was a lot more. I think I will be going agains sometime in April.
When I got there expecting to pay the fee, he told me the first class is free! Awesome, right?!
This is not a paid endorsement. Just my own experience.
