I'm auditioning actors (tomorrow!) for a purely visual experimental short film. I obviously need to ensure that the actors can portray the emotions and feelings of the characters in a truthful way but I am struggling to come up with good techniques to try and get this result. I have them coming in in twos and all the improv stuff I can find online tends to be more comedy related than drama related.
If anyone had any ideas they would be very much appreciated.
If it helps, here's some of what i need the main character to convey at different times in the piece: being, harrowed/tormented/haunted by a memory/thought; intrigued by a new person in his life; being bored/despondent
