Bryan Cranston on acting, inadvertently explains how all creatives can focus and perform
I’m a big enough Bryan Cranston fan that I’d probably tune in to hear him read nutrition labels off cereal boxes.
Here he thoughtfully explains his successful shift from mere ‘job seeker’ to a more fully engaged professional by focusing his efforts squarely on the need at hand.
Creatives don’t audition the same way, thankfully, but the analogy neatly relates a script to a creative brief: understand exactly what the job demands, demonstrate your expertise, and show how that will serve goals and interests in that moment.
Words to work by. Thanks, Mr. C.
