Standing Up on Stage Volume 2 Personality Pieces by Scott Alexander - DVD
Volume Two - Personality Pieces
In this second of five volumes, Scott teaches you how to craft a piece of magic that instantly identifies your character to an audience. We explore why your second effect should let the audience in on your personality to create and set the tone for the rest of your performance. In the Director's Guide section, Scott also discusses the importance of using simple lighting in many situations from a grand stage to a hotel ballroom, because if they can't see you, they can't enjoy you. This DVD contains the second of three "Style Star" sessions to help you lock in on your character, and how this should inform everything from your trick selection to your publicity materials.
On this DVD, there are four examples of personality tricks described and explained in full detail, including:
A needle and a balloon collide in an explosion of personality and character.
