We were watching monologues one day and Nevaeh picked out 4 of them she would like to do, this one “the not so perfect Child” was her favorite choice. I asked why. She said, “It was a challenge”. And I said oh, why is that? She stated, “It’s very emotional! I want to work with this one” for the next week she was rehearsing it and showing me what she could do. I was amazed she picked up on the emotions of the parts. We recorded a rehearsal where she was reading from the script. The next week in the studio we started shooting the Monologue and she had lost the feelings she once had. I’m not sure why? So we went into the edit room and watched her first rehearsal. She sat down watched the recording and then looked the script over and said she was now ready. We started shooting and she had changed herself into another character. After the shoot I asked her what happened from the first take to the second one. Her answer was, “I started out like we were filming a commercial or educational video where I was myself”. Then I realized, it’s not me, I am someone else and I became someone else to play the part with more emotion”.
