"Television and Film auditions have often been a challenge for me, particularly when you get one or two lines and definitely when there are no lines. Stuart's technique allowed me to take all my stage craft and apply it into making 30 seconds as full as an evening in the theater."
Tony award winner for Jelly's Last Jam, and Tony nominee and 2005 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Caroline or Change
2009 is coming to a close, and many of us will be assessing our accomplishments for the year. Too many times we make the mistake of only measuring the things we have NOT accomplished; and while this may be valuable in helping us set new goals for the year, it is important that we take a moment to appreciate and congratulate ourselves on the things we DID make happen. If you were in class, sent out marketing, continued networking, saw theater, television or film, attended auditions, or set foot in front of a camera or audience this year YOU MADE PROGRESS. You made an investment in your career that will one day pay off, even if it didn’t pay this year.
Be good to yourself, continuing to be encouraging and positive to yourself and to other artists. Coming from a place of gratitude makes your future success arrive faster… and you have a better time while you’re waiting for it.
I want to once again personally invite you all to my holiday concert! It’s the one time a year I perform: songs I’ve written and songs of the season. It’s a great family event that will bring you much needed holiday cheer. It’s at the Nate Holden Theater on Washington Blvd. Yes, tickets are $15 (we’re donating any profits to an educational scholarship), but PLEASE don’t stay away if you don’t have $15 (you can get them at www.stuartkrobinson.com). E-mail Kat at firstname.lastname@example.org – and be my guest if money is that tight. We’d love to see you all at the Robinson Creative Holiday Reception after the show in the lobby of the theater.
Let’s take this one chance to feel good about ourselves and the trying-but-wonderfully rewarding business we have chosen as our life’s work.
