From Our Editors

Directing Actors is a method for establishing collaborative relationships with actors, getting the most out of rehearsals, recognizing and fixing poor performances, and developing your actors' creativity. Ms. Weston discusses what constitutes a good performance, what actors want from a director, what directors do wrong, script analysis and preparation, how actors work, and the director/actor relationship. This book, based on the author's twenty years of professional acting and eight years of teaching Acting for Directors, is the first book to directly address film and television directors about working with actors. Contains both a Bibliography and an Index."After living on movie sets for over fifteen years, Judith's class opened a door for me to an aspect of that creative process about which I had never really been aware -- acting". -- Ron Judkins, Production Sound Mixer, Jurassic Park, Sehindler's List
