Learn to transfer your skills from the theater to the camera in this second edition of Film and Television Acting: From Stage to Screen, a Focal Press book by Ian Bernard. This 176-page paperback provides an analysis of the differences between theater and film/TV acting, with specific approaches for making the transition to on-camera work. It offers solid techniques for creating natural, believable performances, including tips on listening and reacting, blocking and business, character, focus, the close-up, and comedy as they pertain to acting in front of a camera. This second edition is revised and updated with scenes from "Cheers" and "Seinfeld" to help you practice the specific techniques explained by the author. It also includes interviews with actors who have successfully made the stage-to-screen transition, such as Don Murray, Norman Jewison, and Glenn Jordan. Additionally, there is a chapter-length interview with John Lithgow and a foreword by Jack Lemmon.
