Acting Exercises



Breathing Exercises- Start the practice by doing breathing exercises stable 2 minutes, breathing exercises with yoga 3 poses, breathing exercises with a short slow but steady routine (Slow dance, tai chi, walking back and forth).


Push up Punishment -Every time you mess up a line 10 Push ups (For the entire Acting Routines)


Sit up Punishment Everytime you miss a que for your line you do 10 Sit ups (For the entire Acting routines)


Does the Voice match? In this exercise the actors use different voices from characters placed in a box. First Practice talking in as many different accents as you can naturally remember. Next practice in the voice of the role you want to try out for next. Practice talking like people with different personality types. Practice speaking like people in position of authority. Practice speaking in a voice to everyone at practice. Now Pick the character voice out the box and in one on one conversations and group conversations compete with each person at practice until a winner is picked.


Hurricane Tongues- Use any tongue twister you know while acting like you are in the middle of the worst hurricane. Next Use any tongue twister you know like your are in a hurricane that is not dangerous. Pick your favourite line from a movie and act like your are in the worst hurricane. Next repeat the Line acting like you know this will be a hurricane that is not dangerous. Improvise lines when for a strange reason you find out its the day of the hurricane you knew nothing about. Practice safety routines in extreme situations like flood, someone injured from a flying object, The roof is torn off, lighting strikes the house; while using a tongue twister first, another favourite line, and finally while improvising.


Yoga Lines- While stretching in yoga poses speak the lines of the script.


Line Dancing- While speaking the lines of a script dance a freestyle dance at first and then practice the lines with more advanced dance steps.


Exagerated movements While speaking the lines of a script, tv show, Icon, Hero, or book; slowly do extreme movements for the first 2months of training and gradually perform quicker Exagerated movements.



Specific Movements- this exercise involves the Actor/ Actress performing specific movements like setting a table and repeating a simple line while performing a specific action with the props. As the months progress add more lines and change set,props, improvise and change script.

Squats while pretending to be another character for 4 sets of 30 seconds.


Career Acting-Career Acting involves the actor(s) and Actress(es) all acting as people in the same Career. The First One to mess up has to be the last one to pick the career role scenario.while the others compete until a champion is selected and they pick the Careers of all the other actors/actresses.


Heroes and Villians- Actors and Actresses are all selected to be a hero and a villian. Start by improvising the scene with your partner(s) and at the end repeat your favourite Super Hero Line or Super Villian line.


Fantasy Land – Repeat the Lines while acting as your favourite fantasy character in the scene. Improvise Lines for that character in roles( That Character as the Main character, Co Lead, Supporting cast, Extra) and scenes the director chooses. Practice being different types of Fantasy creatures in different Genres of film. Practice being your favourite nonhuman character and improvise lines in different scenes ( so imagine its a castle, a Wizard, mage, mystic, or witches house, A knights house, a black smiths house, Social Events, at work, Shopping, Narnia, a Magical ocean, a Magical forest, a Magical Dessert, or a Magical Frozen fortress).


Action Packed- The Director gives you an action like running for help, sports, breaking up a fight, jumping, dance competition, fighting and then hiding, fighting and then dieing, Fighting and making jokes. The first 3 runs are all improvised and the final two are with lines from your favourite movie or story.


Your Creation- Pick the age of the character, character personality, genre of film and act out scenes that you make up or how they would have been in your favourite movie.


Acting Appreciation and Respect

Acting is a craft passed down through the generations from each race in their own way the Europeans took a great respect for the craft and Developed it in to the greatest collection of art forms that is currently with us. The Acting Craft has created and captured many beautiful moments in history and imaginative wonders. The Craft has also been abused and used to promote racism, Hatred, Violence, Gender and preference stereo types in many society destroying ways. When i heard an Actor said the craft was for sissies i realized he did not know the Bravery it takes to Act in Roles In Life when Even only two fans desperately need it to be represented its best at cost to that actors or actresses; dreams, career, and life. Film is an Educational tool as well and its best lessons will always need its best Acting. Acting is for the brave and ignorance should never be accepted and promoted in such a wonderful craft. Acting is not just knowing your lines! It is understanding your role! Acting is not a competitive sport but a collaborative process that takes the entire team from you the Actors and Actresses to the entire film-making team that contributes to your success!

Da Rolle-Hanna Effect

Another Example of the Rolle-Hanna Effect is the way in which Cartoons and Animation can trick us into believing that the character(s) is(are) saying a specific line without having to have the exact lip movements associated with a word or sound. If we examine people with the same dialect for lip mechanics for different words and sounds there will be variation in the lip movements to generate that word or sound. Variation in tongue sizes, teeth sizes, lip sizes and other contributing vocal mechanic factors will play a factor in the variations of how an Individuals lips move to speak.
