Directing: How to Communicate with Actors

Directing: How to Communicate with Actors

Improve your directing skills by learning effective methods for communicating with actors.

Thursday, May 21, 2015 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Ever directed a film or stage performance and just couldn’t get your concepts across to your actors? Ever been an actor who just couldn’t translate a director’s thoughts into what you needed for a character? In this course, you will not only learn to be a stronger director but also a better leader. This will be achieved through understanding how a professional actor thinks, knowing how to use your words instead of actions to get your thoughts across, and understanding how to listen as much as speak. This class will involve conversations on directing, video, real-time in class examples and physical actor exercises. Instructor: Evin C. Anderson
