Practical Insights into the Acting Process from People Who Actually Know What They’re Talking About
We're drowning in celebrity interviews on Late Night shows (and elsewhere), but those interviews are, for the most part, really about marketing/entertainment. If you’re an actor who wants to get better at what you do, hearing an actor’s hilarious stories about gluten free craft service (or what have you) isn’t that useful. You want to know how actors do their thing and get better, so you can follow suit. Eyeline seems to be striving to fill that need in a way that's candid, funny and non-pretentious. Looking forward to more episodes!
An Actor’s Podcast
What makes this podcast unique is that it’s not just people talking about their highs/lows, it’s the mental process that surrounds those times. Therapeutic, funny, and relatable to folks not in “the biz” too.
Love this. Meaty. Look forward to hearing more episodes as they come out. I think it's good for people both in and outside of "the biz."
