All filmmakers should know how to direct actors in their dramas, as well as presenters in their documentaries.
What actually is acting? What makes a good film actor? What is the difference between a stage performance and one for the camera?
Which is easier? Which do actors prefer? What do actors need from the director and crew – and other actors? Whose character is it anyway - the director’s or the actor’s - or the editor’s?
How should you cast film actors?
What should directors NOT do to actors?
This will be an interactive discussion in which local actors will try to answer the questions above, and any more that you may have.
This year’s Zoom presentations are now being made available on line. The first batch has been uploaded and more will be added as they are produced. Their permanent home is the new ‘presentations’ option under ‘’RESOURCES’ on the top menu.
