Something a bit different this week on Actortim;
Presenting VideoTim, a brand new YouTube channel dedicated to new and unique monologues and performances!
I have decided to fill the time between acting jobs by presenting new work online. I prefer to keep myself busy and stay in practice as much as possible but, without a stage on which to perform, I have no feedback and no audience. Well VideoTim will put pay to that!
This isn’t a replacement for a showreel; I am in the process of putting a full one of those together and I’ll be sharing it as soon as it’s prepared. No, this is more an experiment in staying sharp and encouraging the development of new monologues.
Y’see, VideoTim is an open channel where writers are encouraged to get in touch and send in new monologues for me to perform. Viewers are then encouraged to comment on the results and to suggest changes; it’s completely interactive.
With that in mind, if you have a monologue of between 1 and 5 minutes in length that you would like to see put into action on screen, email it in to firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d really love to read it – and if I like it, it could be the very next VideoTim presentation! Share the news and encourage others to contribute!
Oh, and don’t forget to comment on the video’s yourself and to share them as widely as possible.
Without further ado, here’s a quick introduction followed by the very first video; An Invitation to Dinner. Enjoy!
