Let 'em have it!

For my latest project, I'm still working on being the no-nonsense, in your face, unapologetic police captain. It is definitely a challenge for me, but I've gotten great feedback on where to improve to bring the character to life. With the last five minutes of class yesterday, I tried it out on a student being a stand in and performed some of my lines. They said, "Mr. Wellman, that was good, but let him have it. Really have it. Yell at him!" I took a moment, and then did it. They applauded my performance and believed my words, actions, and facial expressions. Great fun!
