Client called with a great idea, the next big thing! "What if you did a series on YouTube, about astrology?" “Like Bare Foot Astrology?” "No, you don’t get it! Like, explain the signs a little, then have a link back to you! People can get a reading then! “Don’t you see? Put it up on [...]

Shakespeare’s Advice

From Peter Hall’s Shakespeare’s Advice to the Players – Shakespeare tells the actors when to go fast and when to go slow; when to come in on cue, and when to accent a particular word or series of words. He tells the actor much else; and he always tells him when to do it (provided [...]
