WHAT'S YOUR EMOTIONAL TYPE & HOW CAN IT DOUBLE YOUR AUDITIONS
TrueStory there is no reason why you should not be working in TV/Film once you've gotten the training.
The two biggest struggles I hear from actors over and over again is
**1. I can't get representation so I can get into TV/Film Auditions**
**2. My agent/manager doesn't send me out enough so I can't show the game changers what I can do**
These have been my struggles as well. I went through many agents before I found the right fit.
And here's how I did it: Using the emotional type exercise.
I figured if I could figure out what I was good at; then package that idea, then the first agent/manager that got it and saw that as a smart strategy was going to be the winner.
And it worked.
**I go out for my physical type maybe TWICE A MONTH. **
**When I go out for my emotional type, I go out TWICE A WEEK for TV/Film and put myself on tape constantly...**
Yeah, I know...it's crazy...
But I found that once I started teaching it to my clients, it worked like crazy....
They not only started signing with agents and manager, but they started booking series regulars & recurring roles on TV shows and movies.
So, I thought, I got something for you.
Something to get rid of that sinking feeling during pilot season of
_My god, I'm missing out....everyone is getting seen for stuff but me. My reps suck._
_F****, I just saw 3 roles I would be perfect for...I mean I would kill in those roles if only I my rep could have gotten me to audition for them...WTF..._
Yes, this is a well-known actor pain in the ass....
But I have news for you:

How Angela Lewis Inspired Me to Finally Teach This Class
How will Figuring Out My Emotional Type Get Me An Agent & More Lucrative Auditions
**1. Getting a KickAss Agent Who Sends Me on Tons of Auditions**
Create a list of targeted agents who are looking for what you have to sell. Then spend 3 months targeting them.
Targeting them means giving them ways to see what you can do as an actor: hence, the emotional chords. You need to create a space where they can see you work your magical emotional chords.
Let's talk about Mandy's process for a moment because this is exactly what she did.
Click here to here Mandy's story
**2. Booking a speaking role with depth & range**
You need people in power: Film/TV directors, casting directors, managers, agents seeing your on camera work.
You need to create a place where they can see you do industry standard on camera work that is brillant.
You get brillant on Camera auditions and reels when you choose material that directly corresponds with your four major emotional types. This is where your best, most confident, most unself-conscious work is. So, figure out your chords and choose scenes for your reel that go deep into those chords. That way, you'll have the kind of roles you're looking for already on tape to pitch to an agent and manager to ensure they keep looking for deep roles like that for you.
**3. Getting Your Face in front of the camera for TV/Film Auditions**
There's lots of ways to to this...the problem is actors don't have a press kit with a clear brand of what they sell, a business strategy to present to agents/managers on how to get them auditions and they don't target people in power for an intense 2 month period to build relationships.
And even if you do get someone's attention or a meeting, if you walk in without your business strategy, they will not sign you.
We already know your physical type, but that's only going to make you money for a limited amount of time and agents/managers know that.
If you walk in the room with a clear, clean press kit (headshot, resume, reel, website, one page) and a vision as well as a tight script for agents/managers to use to get your more auditions using your emotional type, they will bite.
You're solving a problem for them AND THAT MEANS EVERYBODY MAKES MONEY.
**4. Getting an Agent/Representation**
Research, Target who you want to work with and then show up to a meeting with a plan for them that will get them excited to work with you.
**5. Booking a Series Regular, Recurring, Guest Star, Co-Star on a Pilot
Getting a Great Reel in front of agents, managers and casting directors showing you doing work from your emotional chords on your reel from top 25 shows running right now.

How do you create a reel with no credits

**5. Learning How to Audition for Different Genres**

How the Emotional Chords Exercise Works
Okay, I'm going to walk you through this process step-by-step.
1. You're only going out for black woman number four and when you get to the audition, there are 20 other black women ages 20-60 auditioning for the same role: this is a problem.
OR you're a petite woman who looks like an ingenue litle sister, but your soul is a basass super agent or marvel kickass ninja justice fighter but you can't get seen for any of those roles because you're tiny and everyone wants to make you the kid sister.
Not finding work that speaks to what you're good at is a problem...
Start looking at character breakdowns by looking for emotional types. For example,
20 something brunette with an attitude could be anybody
**Emotional Type Breakdown**
but a man or woman who constantly shuts themselves off from love fearing their vulnerability will somehow dimininish them or get them irrevocably hurt so they use their anger to distract and repel anyone from getting close....
Ts a whole different kettle of fish....that's an emotional type and that person could look like anyone (straight, gay, black, purple, white, asian...any age)
Let's Identify Your Four Major Emotional Types
Create a list of your top 100 movies and/or TV shows.
Pick a couple of shows that have really got you hooked and watch an entire season following the character or situation you feel most strongly about.
Either a character you despise or a character who everytime, she has a problem...her struggle to overcome it brings on intense feelings for you: tears, laughter, joy, relief....
These feelings should be feelings that surprise you and happen ALOT...
You know you're on to something when you describe this scene to a friend, you become emotional and vulnerable...just talking about it.
Now that you've followed that character for an entire season, you should have a pretty good idea of what their recurring emotional chord is.
Write that down.
Write down what their major struggle is
What lesson do they continually fail to learn
What triggers them to act in ways that work against them
How do they continually get in their own way
How do you feel when they make mistakes and fall short of their potential.
Write down that feeling
Write that down because
That's your emotional chord...that is something you understand.
Whatever their major recurring battle is, is something you've struggled with and conquered or are in the process of conquering...that battle is your chord.
Its a set of emotional lessons that your heart understands and your soul has such empathy for a character experiencing the same thing that you could play that character with your eyes closed.
You will find as you go through your list that that same chord pops up again and again. That's totally normal.
If you need to mix it up to find the other 3 major chords, then do that by watching different genres: comedy, theatre, books, poems, musical lyrics, musicals.
And if you're still stuck, here's a super useful trick: choose characters who are physically completely different from you.
Get as far away from your physical type as possible. Choose someone who is a different age, race, gender, sexual orientation, historic time period.
You name it...that will help you start looking at the psychology of the character which is where his/her emotional chords are the clearest and the juiciest.
Once you have your Four Major Emotional Chords, now you're ready to package them for your agents and managers.
Create an emotional type page.
This page should have four photos of you that represent each of your four emotional types
Each emotional type should be represented by a particular color. Go to
Then build a simple website around that emotional type page with a main page with your contact info, headshot, resume.
UPDATE your Imdb and FB pages to match the website. Then do a mass NYC mailing and try to get appointments after sending folks your reel.
Or consider joining the BadAssActor Showcase 2017 to get in front of 20 agents, managers, casting directors. But you have to audition for this class and/or take April's on camera or emotional type class to get into this showcase.
Or do your own showcase
Or book a fancy NYC role in a theatre company that gets reviewed by the times and use that role and that review to send out a press kit and get folks to give you meetings.
But once you get to that meeting, if you don't have a press kit and a strategy like the Emotional Chords technique, chances of getting signed are slim at best.
OMG April!!!! I first just wanted to send you some Love!!!
You have no idea how you are changing my life. You give so much. So much of yourself. So much information. So much lovejoyfiercenessgetyourshittogethernoexcusesnurturingwithoutcoddling bad assness. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Sometimes you are giving so much to so many that I can't keep up, so it's taken me some time, but I am always working.... your videos cracked open a block for me in one night...tonight.
A video about the emotional chords. I have been wrestling with those damn emotional chords for Months now. I have to say, I was very discouraged. Going through all those movies to find the right 10 moments is very daunting. I never did it. But I Have been doing a combination of going back and watching stuff, remembering/thinking of the moments/scenes/characters that shook me, analyzing the characters I've been cast as and which ones I fell in love with, and observing myself as I walk through life. And something about that video tonight, made me burst into tears, and then (what I think are) my 4 emotional chords came pouring out like liquid diamonds in the desert sun! All bright and shiny!!!
I'm so close. And that is very exciting So, thank you, April. You are everything.
