So I am going to ACTF tomorrow, and I still haven't figured out what my sm approach is. What are they talking about? HELP!

I've never been to ACTF, but I'd assume they are looking your philosophy, your style. My current SM on the production I'm LX for is rather authoritarian. She tends to make a lot of pronouncements and declarative statements--you will do this and I expect that. I am more likely to treat cast and crew as equals on my team--we're all going to work together, I'm here to keep you safe and will expect you to help me help you. I love going to work every day. It's my Happy Place. How do you approach your job?

Basically what they are looking for is a basic one page analysis of the process....looking at what you learned, how you grew, and what you learned that you have to continue to work on....Its an important part of the competition but they are really going to look at your book and your organizational structure...I am not sure what region you are in our how your region structures your competition but in Region VII a lot of weight is put on your interview and presentation.....
Its kinda crazy that I came across your post tonight....I have received the SM national fellowship for the past two years and would be happy to help you in anyway....let me know....

I went, and though I didn't win anything, they think I have a lot of potential. My director/teacher is also being considered to be chair or vice chair of Louisiana as well as vice chair for playwriting. I hope to do better next year and I learned a lot. I will be sure to keep in touch with you as time progresses.  ;D
