Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Mastering Your Expressions as a Model

I've discussed this before on the blog, but I always found this clip of actress Mary Elizabeth WInstead instructive in this regard. This is a screen test of Winstead for the character of Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim). In it, the directors asks her to go through an array of expressions for the camera. First, the camera says something cute to her, then thaws the ice, pisses her off, and finally she "over" the camera. Watch as Winstead goes through this full panoply of expressions without even breaking a sweat. Remember, practice makes perfect people, but as a model you should have your arsenal of expressions down.
