Got the script for the summer project over the weekend. Started the character building.
Playing a ‘legendary musician’ type. You know how they say ‘find something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life’? It’s been a while since I’ve played an ‘uber cool’ type, so it’s been fun starting to build that out. Trying on (name withheld’s) vocal inflections; borrowing (name withheld’s) style and seeing what looks ‘natural’ on me. Watching clips of (name withheld) when he steps on the stage and owns the crowd for two hours. I enjoy this part and we’ll see what the director likes and the director doesn’t.
One of many guys I’m using for influence in the legendary performers catalog to start the week.
