FITV12-201: Directing Actors

Description

This subject explores the actor/director relationship. It introduces students to the approaches and practices of working with actors to rehearse and achieve powerful screen performances. Furthermore, it demystifies how actors approach their work, the language they use to discuss their work, and the theoretical models developed over the past century, such as Stanislavski, Brecht, and Method, upon which most actors build their performance techniques.
