Directing Actors - 25th Anniversary Edition: Creating Memorable Performances for Film and Television

Item is in stock Hurry, Only 1 Left! Item is out of stock Item is unavailable

Directing Actors - 25th Anniversary Edition: Creating Memorable Performances for Film and Television discusses the challenges of the actor-director relationship.

Many filmmakers look forward to working with actors, because it is both the scariest and most rewarding part of their work - the place where connections occur. The pitfalls of “result direction”; preparing for casting sessions, when, how, and whether to rehearse, plus more detailed chapters on rehearsal and script analysis (with an example from The Matrix) as well as a whole chapter on directing children. Directing Actors continues to instill confidence in filmmakers for nearly twenty-five years, bringing directors, actors, and writers deeper into the exhilarating task of creating characters the world will never forget.

Since 1985, Judith Weston has taught directors, actors, and writers. Her students include: Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Birdman, Biutiful, Amores Perros; Ava DuVernay, When They See Us, Andrew Stanton, WALL-E, The Sopranos.
