Collaborating With Actors: A Directors Guide

Content Tabs

Designed for directors with some filmmaking experience, but little or no involvement in the performing arts, the course examines how actors are trained and the various methods they use in order to inhabit their characters and bring them vividly to life. 

What directors far too often lack is an understanding of the specific needs actors have in their efforts to help the director achieve her/his vision and a vocabulary with which to communicate effectively with their cast. This workshop aims to address that deficiency by helping participants to develop means of communications that are both concise and effective.

Additionally the course will demonstrate how the methodologies actors use can help the director make informed decisions on camera placement and visual language.
