Ten popular and acclaimed film directors whose film careers began in front of the cameras candidly offer their insights into the all-important and generally underexplored subject of directing actors. Each actor/director discusses filmmaking as observed from and practiced on both sides of the camera and offers unique, invaluable guidelines and tips on casting, rehearsing, communicating and working with actors, and the whole of the moviemaking process. The interviewees are Jodie Foster, Mel Gibson, Kevin Bacon, Pollack, Leonard Nimoy, Ron Maxwell, Richard Benjamin, Melanie Mayron, Kevin Hooks and Paul Mazursky.
