Lines 2 Memory Line learning AppLines 2 Memory (App)

Lines2Memory from The Stage is the line-learning app  we’ve all been waiting for and that I wish I’d thought to develop, because it’s going to be huge. You record a scene and can play back just the other characters’ lines, or have yours played too. It’s packed with more features than I was able to even experiment with on first use, but they include leaving a gap for you to repeat your own lines, playing pre-determined sections, or looping either one scene or all those you have recorded from a single script. It really is that simple, and that clever. More details…

If you’re interested in offering a product, service or acting resource for private review and potential recommendation, please get in touch. I will not promote services I don’t believe in. I don’t even want to keep the product. And I won’t publish a review. So if I don’t like what you offer, nobody need ever know.

Positive vibes only…

Curated by Jason Broderick, the guy who designed this very site, WFTC is the place to find advice on everything from finance to keeping track of audition material, choosing a headshot photographer to networking.

He was smart enough to be telling his readers/subscribers about the podcast very early in the game, so kudos for that. To find out what else you’ve been missing out on, visit the site at www.waitingforthecall.co.uk
