Act Right: A Manual for the On-camera Actor
My first day of work as the star of a television movie was a study in what an actor shouldnt do. I wanted to make sure other actors dont go through the same nightmare, said Erin. When youre confident about the technical details, youre free to create as an actor. If you do a brilliant scene but it winds up on the cutting room floor because you dont know how to match, whose fault is it really? One of our goals in writing this book, said Mara, who created and produced the hit BBC series Milford-Haven, was to help actors see what a collaborative business this is. None of us work alone. The more we know about crew members jobs, the more intelligent we can be about our own work. Were tired of actors getting a bad rap for not being professional. The book finishes with a glossary of the code words spoken in the entertainment business, which are presented here as a tongue-in-cheek and yet encyclopedic tome of information. Open the book at random and read a great anecdote or look up an obscure word. But we think you want to read it from cover to cover. Only then will you be able to Act Right.
