6-Word Stories as Acting Practice (Edge Studio Tip)

Another great blog today by Edge Studio. I may use the concept of this one in class this semester. We sort of do with one exercise, but this post really lays it out clearly with more examples.


It asks the question – how many ways can you read a 6-word story?

The answer is A LOT of different ways using pacing, pauses, emotion, stress, and character. Each take should bring more and more story to the words. Try it. Record it. Play it back. Listen for the differences. Didn’t hear any? Then you need to work on your self-evaluation skills.
