The most crucial relationship on a movie set is between the director responsible for the telling of a story and the actors entrusted with bringing that story’s characters to life.
Good communication between actor and director can mean the difference between a great film and a missed opportunity.
Directing Actors is a method for establishing creative, collaborative relationships between actors and directors that takes the reader on a journey through the complexities of the creative process itself.
Using simple, practical tools that both directors and actors can use immediately, Judith Weston shows you how to get the most out of rehearsals, troubleshoot poor performances and give directions that are clear, succinct and easy to follow.
