VO4TA: Consistent

 

I've asserted here that if an actor makes a strong choice, when they then read a script three times in a row (playing that one choice) I can guarantee it'll come out differently every single time.

HPK:  Nope.

VO4TA: That "Perfect" Thing - Again

It's a very "actory" thing to say; that desire to perfect something before moving on to something new.  

 

VO4TA: A Tag

 

Here's a tag. I wrote it.  It's not a very good one.  

"Make your choice today."
