  • 1Description

Elevate your skills to the next level by learning Stanislavsky's classic method approach in The Art of Film Acting: A Guide For Actors and Directors, a Focal Press book by Jeremiah Comey. The 304-page volume applies Stanislavsky's famous stage acting philosophy to the medium of film and television, training you to express emotions openly and honestly and to respond to your fellow actors believably. The end result is that you will be experiencing feelings truthfully, rather than simply indicating them. The lessons herein are applicable to cold reading, auditioning, and actually performing in a film or TV show. Comey maintains that the key to a successful performance lies in the way the actors relate to one another and to the circumstances. Exercises, including script examples, throughout the book provide an accessible resource for practicing the principles explained.
