Fun little lesson on acting from Ian McKellen on the show Extras.

Laughed my ass off after watching that. Funniest part is it is pretty much what acting is. Learn the lines and pretend to be the character.

365 Sketches

Posted by Brian Paris on Jan 19, 2009 in Blog

Joe Janes, a teacher at Second City, is taking up a big challenge today. He has committed to writing a sketch a day, everyday for a year. He is planning on posting his drafts every night along with commentary about the process. I am looking forward to reading every day. Because he is committed to doing this as a teaching exercise also, I think that there will be a lot gained by everyone reading as well as what he himself learns. I only had him as a substitute once in my writing class, but have enjoyed reading his blog ever since. So get a fast start on what may become the best learning resource for sketch writing, check out his blog at Bite and Smile.
