Abstract

This statement of my process is a written description and analysis of my personal approach to developing a role or character for a performance. My approach to character development is vastly different today than it was three years ago. This statement of process describes the core of my work as an artist and what I value as an artist. It is an in depth perspective of what I do as a performer. It is what I value in acting, what I find relevant, and a personal evaluation on where I lie in attempting to achieve those aesthetics. It is the process and product that I currently value and pursue; its strengths and weaknesses, and what I would like to change about it in the future. In better clarifying what my process is, I can define what the missing elements are and uncover my work for the future.
