TIP TUESDAY: GUNS 101, Part 2

IMG_2104.jpg

If you receive an audition where there is a gunshot, have someone make a sound.

It does not and really should not sound like a gunshot, but you as an actor need a sound to react to in the moment. In fact, you just made your job exponentially more difficult by trying to play that you have been shot with nothing to respond to. Use a book on a table, slam a door, give me (and you) some kind of sound.
