How LaKeith Stanfield Broke Into Hollywood [FULL INTERVIEW]

Actor LaKeith Stanfield shares his beginning desire to be an actor, making a long (2 hour plus) train ride from Victorville, CA to Los Angeles, CA for numerous auditions in the early days of his career. He touches on how he began Googling how to act and where to find acting work as a way to learn more about the profession. LaKeith also talks about the bias of other actors who may have received classical training versus an intuitive, practiced acting style.

Stuff we use:

CAMERA – This is the camera we have used to film 90+% of our interviews (over 200 interviews and counting) It continues to be our workhorse –

LENS – Most people ask us what camera we use, no one ever asks about the lens which filmmakers always tell us is more important. This lens was a big investment for us and one we wish we could have made sooner. Started using this lens at the end of 2013 –

AUDIO

Rode VideoMic Pro – The Rode mic helps us capture our backup audio. It also helps us sync up our audio in post

Audio Recorder – If we had to do it all over again, this is probably the first item we would have bought –

LIGHTS – Although we like to use as much natural light as we can, we often enhance the lighting with this small portable light. We have two of them and they have saved us a number of times –

COMPUTER – Our favorite computer, we each have one and have used various models since 2010 –

EDITING – We upgraded our editing suite this year and we’re glad we did! This has improved our workflow and the quality of our work. Having new software also helps when we have a problem, it’s easy to search and find a solution –
