 My agent loved the self tapes I sent in. My performance was IN the room not my head. It was vital and edgy because I gave myself permission to reveal the full me. No hiding behind my voice. No introspection. Just present. 

...our session had a profound effect on everything.

I knew my voice/energy was trapped and as we discussed was beginning to bring it forward in my VO sessions, however using the trigger word ‘shoulders’ and visualising the Lotus flower has released not only physical tension but emotional.

My agent loved the self tapes I sent in. My performance was IN the room not my head. It was vital and edgy because I gave myself permission to reveal the full me. No hiding behind my voice. No introspection. Just present.

I saw it immediately. It has also freed up my singing. That chakra point has been so closed and fearful for so many years that by bringing attention to it I have found a new way of communicating.

I’m open, freer and direct! I always wondered why I had to repeat myself when in a group and it was because I never really wanted to be heard. On Saturday night my partner turned round and said I was too loud! I just thought…at last! Everyone heard me.

I love it and want to thank you for holding up a mirror and helping me unlock this vital instrument. It really has been an awakening in the true sense of the word.

Have a wonderful week.

Keep in touch and thank you for helping me discover the missing piece in my creative jigsaw.

I’m so happy and have discovered more energy in my body. I can feel when I’m sitting in the back of my head and feel closed. Then I think. Shoulders. Lotus. It’s a new energetic present me.

Isn’t life beautifully surprising!

Warmest,

Richard.

I was struggling with staying positive, having faith in my work and the future of my career, and a lot of unconscious habits that got in the way of my potential...

I got very very busy during the course, with offers of work and auditions.

The visualisations are now a part of my life and I am much more Faith Full, with much more self belief, and much more awareness of the negative thoughts. I have eliminated the fear of success and fear of failure that debilitated me...I became much more caring towards my self tapes. Much more work and care went into them and I sent auditions and tapes in that I was genuinely proud of. It was also a wonderful refresher on craft. It also affected how I communicated with industry people, my agent, etc...I am much more positive. I believe in myself more, I don't get upset by the ups and downs quite so much, I am more in the present.

In the time that I worked with you Nick, I booked 4 jobs and earned over £20k!!

 

This allowed me to pay off my credit card (which was something I wanted to do) I can now comfortably afford my own apartment for another year and I have savings + have money to fly home to see my family in New Zealand! 

I am so much happier and my career took off fairly quickly once I started implementing the daily changes and really saw myself succeeding!

By shifting my beliefs and making it a daily practice to work on my taping skills, self worth and confidence I am doing MUCH better auditions and therefore booking higher paid better quality work. My relationship with myself and others has improved greatly and I am so glad to have the support for the other Activate members.

The group was a safe space, a fun space! I don't think I could have had this level of growth without learning from them too. I wake up each day knowing that I have choices. I am excited for each day and I feel like I am living more which is a promise I made to my Dad before he died.

That I would live a life free and full of enriching experiences. Activate has definitely been that for me. ❤️

 

 
 

Previously what stopped me was fear of the unknown, poor self-image, low self-esteem, lack of commitment and focus, lack of exercise and self-care

I had weight issues which were causing health issues, negative thinking, no faith in myself and my abilities, a hang up about my age (I’m too old and knackered), thinking that if I gave myself permission to succeed and be paid, I would be seen as greedy and therefore I refused myself permission and did nothing. Now out of all that from having gone through the ACTivate programme I have shifted quite a lot. Weight-wise I’ve dropped 7.7 kg and as a result my health issues are diminishing rapidly.

This was possible because I have learned through ACTivate techniques on how to focus and maintain that focus. I have learned how to commit. My self-esteem has shot up. I no longer have a hang-up about my age. I recognise and appreciate my talents and capabilities.❤️

I am approaching self tapes in a much calmer way and am beginning to feel more relaxed in the process...

I became aware that some deep rooted values I was holding onto have hindered me and I was previously totally unaware of the values that I was holding onto. I am succeeding in replacing my old set of values with new ones. I have discovered some new things about my acting ability!

I am feeling a lot more focussed and positive about my acting career and feel that change is, at last, possible...

 #Takeaway "...How To Break Down Screenplay and Sides' This video was jam packed with useful information Nick! I realised that I had not been breaking down my sides enough and there's so much more I can extract from the material. I need to work on this and practice with sides in between auditions so that when it comes to a real audition I can do the work quickly and thoroughly...."

 

I approach things in a calmer frame of mind and am happier within myself. I just go for things rather than worry and dissect them first...

I enjoy self taping now. I'm realising after many years of rejection and hurt, that people like me and find me fun! I've been prioritising better and I don't compare but go for what is me.

I have much to give and contribute which has given me a sense of well being - I take risks rather than analyse  - I am not responsible for other people and I don't have to spend time with toxic people

Mandy

And again, this is a magical tool. I was listening to it for several days while preparing...

...for a self tape audition. What ever comes out of this audition, I was at my best and gave 100%. Hanni Heinrich x

 

Now I feel I can take on the world...

Yes I feel more empowered in my mind. I know what I need to do to make me a A list Actor. I have a sense of strength and courage. It’s giving me a brilliant foundation to having a successful career and being a more positive person...

Much lighter in myself...

#wins For me it’s got to be a new found excitement when I am doing a self tape I never had that feeling before, I used to get all Antsy and uptight.. But now it’s a completely different story because I am using my ACTivate tools to help me now! ⚡️

 

 #Win I am genuinely feeling a real shift and the techniques we are learning are becoming second nature for me, and part of my daily routine. I find myself doing the 3 deep breaths automatically before the camera turns over and also asking for what I need on set (without fear) so that I can do my job. Feeling confident and happy! ❤️
#Aha 'Always give yourself 5% more energy than you think you need!' I used this on set today and it was amazing! I even shared this with a couple other actors!

 

 #ahas Lighten the hell up!! I am an upbeat person. I found I have been taking myself and everything so seriously. Since I realised this earlier today I feel like a weight has been lifted off me.  I love acting my job is so fun. I started creating from that place and ended up doing a self tape from a piece I had written a while ago only PERFECT. Yay. Also Comparison is the thief of joy stopping looking at everyone else and staying in my own lane. And that used to be a huge trigger for me... ❤️  🌟. 🚀


#wins I got to see two cuts of my film Reflex and I felt so proud of what I have achieved & spent two hours talking with the director & came up with a new scene that helps move the story along.

#wins Giving myself credit shifting my focusing on to what I am achieving. Rediscovering my love of writing for myself 😎. 🎥 🏆 
 #Takeaway 'How To Break Down Screenplay and Sequences' This video was jam packed with useful information Nick! I realised that I had not been breaking down my sides enough and there's so much more I can extract from the material. I need to work on this and practice with sides in between auditions so that when it comes to a real audition I can do the work quickly and thoroughly.

 #Aha I was also getting caught out with bear traps (particularly the vortex) in my sides. I will continue to work on this.
Thank you for your advice Nick really helpful! For me this goes hand in hand with giving myself permission. 😎

#Win I filmed my scenes today and smashed it! I used my process to get into the zone, I had fun AND did a great job. I'm having such a valuable, rewarding experience on this job!

And suddenly just like that all my fears are gone. 

 Its first time I don't just know and feel it .. I am it.

#ahas I have had an epiphany! :) I was in a slump this week -  felt like I was going backwards.  As Andrea mentioned, we had a lovely chat on Tuesday and we both started reminding each other of lots of things that were actually changing. Then, the amazing work I got to do in class for me to jump off that cliff! But I felt the big things weren't shifting and it was getting me down. 

Suddenly felt all the work Nick has been doing with us these past few weeks came into line.  I suddenly remembered my need to be an actor when I was a child. It was deeper than a want or a dream. 

When doing the Energetic Signature, My empowering moment was when I was doing a monologue on stage to full house.  And I thought about what I said in class that I don't get nervous on stage.  I realise that when acting on stage I am 100% present.  The audience is 100% present and we as actors are completely living the scene there and there in real time.  Everyone in that theatre is in the zone and the energy is indescribable.  I feel like my soul is soaring. 

 I realised I dont see screen acting same way because its recorded, it is judged, it held onto, it can haunt me and its usually me on my own looking at myself and pulling me to pieces. Its all in my head! Then I realised whats missing..2 things.

1. I need to act like noone is looking when I am self taping and see the camera as a part of my eyes bringing the story in. and

2. the professional set. 

If I was on a professional set I would have all that wonder of real life, everyone in the zone in the scene.  And suddenly just like that all my fears are gone. 

 It's the first time I don't just know and feel it ... I am it.
