Motive for thought (con't)

The undying search for truth and authenticity for the actor or other creative warriors.

...so it may serve as a base by which they build the emotional life of the characters they are portraying. , removing the sense of obligation that comes along with having to say words that often are not their own.

 

We build a character up in layers from this starting point. Giving over the feeling, touched by this deep instinctual need, to the journey of the character, his or her motivation and intentions as they exist in the circumstances provided by the scene.

 

But, how do we get in touch with this deep instinctual need... by recalling a time in our life when we really needed something.

 

A time where a need that was never met, one that remains unsatiated will be the strongest but one may use most anything to touch the feeling of vulnerability associated with such a time.
