There’s a dance that happens between director and actor. The right partnership can be magic!
For our February meeting we will go beyond casting and talk about building the relationship between the director and the actor during pre-production and on set.
We have an amazing panel lined up. We will be joined by Los Angeles based Billy Cowart, actor and acting teacher (www.wcistudios.com); San Diego based Terry Ross, director, actor and acting teacher (www.actingprofessionally.com); and by Los Angeles based actor Merrick McCartha (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3295021/).
Topics for the panel discussion include:
How the director can best communicate their vision of the project and the character to the actor
An actor's process for bringing the character to life including development of the backstory
What type of information the director can provide to add nuance to the backstory
On set, how the director can best communicate and coach when needed including what is helpful for an actor to hear and what is not helpful
The panel will be moderated by award winning producer and writer Jane Hare (www.linkedin.com/in/janehare)
