Directing Actors with Peter D. Marshall

Working with actors can be one of the most rewarding experiences for a film director - or one of the most traumatic! And the difference between a good experience and a bad experience usually comes down to one word: TRUST!

Actors begin by trusting the director - and it's the director's trust to lose. If an actor feels they cannot trust the director to know a good performance from a bad performance, the actor will begin to monitor his own performances.

And when an actor begins to watch himself, he begins to direct himself - and when he does this, he starts to become Director Proof.

The main objective of this Directing Actors workshop is to demonstrate how directors and actors can work effectively together to build trust; to maximize performance on set; and understand how to work together cooperatively in a tense, time-sensitive and often challenging creative environment.

Directing Actors Workshop with Peter D. Marshall

On Day One, the focus will be on the Director's script preparation, as well as live demonstrations of the audition process, the script read-through and the cast rehearsal.

On Day Two, the class will be divided into groups and have the opportunity to participate in directing a scene with professional actors. Each scene will be recorded and played back for discussion and review.
