ABOUT THIS MODULE

The key to achieving excellent performances is good communication between the actors and the director. Like other industries, directing has its own language that allows a director to succinctly express his vision in a way the actors can embrace.
 
In this module, you will learn from Hollywood actors and directors on how to approach and work effectively with actors on set, how to deal with problematic actors, and how to communicate in the actor’s language.
 
Great performances are made from great collaborations - get everything you can out of your cast for the best movie possible.

It was a very well thought out video and I love the attention to detail and the fact that the subject matter focused on the
