Acting for Film: Truth 24 Times a Second
Why do some actors compel our attention on the screen while others never catch our imaginations? What makes film acting different from acting on stage or TV? Acting For Film is a unique guide designed for actors already working in film, for those who want to, as well as for directors, teachers and anyone interested in film acting.
The author uses her wide experience as an acting and voice coach on major movies to offer insights into the film acting process. She provides tasks, techniques and tips that are designed specifically for film: there's advice to make the first-time film actor feel at home on set, tips on the casting process, how to cope with auditions, on-camera techniques, schedules and shooting order, as well as specific advice from film crews to help an actor's performance. This practical workbook combines exercises and anecdotes in an informal and accessible style, making it the indispensable guide for anyone wishing to light up the silver screen.

This is the best acting book I have ever read. Packed full of knowledge,it is full of really great advice about the film industry and gives you so many different ideas on how to approach a script,being in the moment and how to really be real on screen. Every area is covered from nerves to voice work. It is a bible that the actor can refer back to over and over again.
