This subject explores the actor/director relationship. It introduces students to the approaches and practices of working with actors to rehearse and achieve screen performances. Furthermore, it seeks to demystify 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, Method, and British, upon which many actors build their performance techniques.
