A constant cry in drama both on screen and on stage is “Is it true? Is it real?” and even “Have the actors got the right thoughts in their heads?” After over fifty years of continuously directing actors in both live and recorded media, Patrick Tucker has come to the realisation that all these questions are based on a false understanding of what drama really is, and what the audience’s reaction to it really is.
In a groundbreaking presentation, he shows with pictures and film clips what actually goes on to convince the audience that what they are seeing is true – even though the truth is not what the main aim of the drama should be.
Who should attend?
This presentation is ideal for those who want to direct performances for the camera, who want to be performers on camera, or indeed anyone connected with or interested in screen drama who want to know more about what really goes on when creating those memorable characters we all enjoy watching so much on the screen.
