Description


Collaborating with actors is, for many filmmakers, the last frontier--the scariest part and the part they long for--the human part, the place where connection happens. Directing Actors: 25th Anniversary Edition covers the challenges of the actor-director relationship--the pitfalls of "result direction"; breaking down a script; how to prepare for casting sessions; when, how and whether to rehearse--but with updated references, expanded ideas, more detailed chapters on rehearsal and script analysis (using a scene from The Matrix)--and a whole new chapter on directing children. For twenty-five years the industry standard for instilling confidence in filmmakers, Directing Actors perseveres in its mission--to bring directors, actors and writers deeper into the exhilarating task of creating characters the world will not forget.
