“THE ALCHEMY OF ACTING”
After many heartfelt dialogues with fellow actors, Lisa had the idea of writing a book about the “alchemy” of acting for performers as well as those who deal with performers or anyone interested in human interaction, storytelling and metaphysics. Lisa has had some fascinating metaphysical experiences while acting (and there are plenty of photos of Lisa with unexplained phenomena). She studied all the acting techniques of all the great masters and primarily uses the Michael Chekhov Technique. The current global interest in spirituality, supernatural and metaphysical storytelling is at a all time high never before seen across all formats. So the timing is perfect for this project!
Then Lisa’s vision evolved into the idea of also doing a single documentary film with actors discussing this fascinating topic and sharing their stories on camera. Lisa tossed this idea around to some of her actor friends and after the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response by all of them…and them also saying they knew of someone else who’d want to do it…resulted in it snowballing into a docuseries because there are simply too many people with too many amazing stories to fit it all into a single documentary under 2 hours.
Then, Lisa had the idea of taking portrait photos of these actors (many high-profile) while shooting the on-camera interviews and making a special oversized coffee table book of beautiful portraits (with quotes and bios of the featured actors). Some of the proceeds would then be donated to a charity. Lisa asked her very dear photographer friend if he’d do the portraits and work on this book with her. He immediately said, “YES!” Well, this friend is the legendary photographer Dr. Andy Gotts MBE who is famous for his celebrity portraits and campaigns. Below is just a little bit about this enormous talent who is now a part of this project. You can read more about Andy and view his work on his website: AndyGotts.com
- The National Portrait Gallery holds a selection of his photographs in their permanent collection and in 2009 Gotts was honored with the presentation of the Fox Talbot Award.
- In 2011 Gotts was conferred the degree Doctor of Arts by De Montfort University and he is a former President of the British Institute of Professional Photographers.
- 2012 saw Gotts appointed MBE in the Queen’s New Years Honours List.
- Gotts is noted for his magnum opus ‘Degrees’ which was inspired by the game, the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon; BAFTA – ‘Behind The Mask’ and the Monty Python reunion.
- BEHIND THE MASK: The biggest collection of BAFTA-winning actor portraiture ever assembled to take over entire west wing of Somerset House.
- SAVE THE ARCTIC with VIVIAN WESTWOOD (GREENPEACE)
- Current projects for 2019 includes ‘iCons’ for the Elton John AIDS Foundation as well as a personal project ‘UNSEEN’ which features 100 photographic contact-sheets.
If you have a favorite actor that you’d like to see in this project, email Lisa with your suggestion and we will take it into consideration. Announcements will be coming soon and more info as soon as we have it. Thanks!
