“After the third time this actor approached me, I decided I would never cast him again.”
“I got a real inside peek into what this actor was really thinking. She forgot she was still mic’d and I was wearing my headsets.”
“This actor was extremely talented. But he hosed me in post with his performance.”
These are thoughts of a working film director. You can learn to save time, money and heartache in post, while cementing your reputation as a seasoned, veteran actor.
Announcing a new workshop for Acting: A Director’s POV! Join us Saturday April 12, 2014 for a 3 1/2 hours, hands-on workshop, from a director to an actor. Register here.
Daniel Millican, writer/director for five feature films has worked with Adam Baldwin, Lou Diamond Phillips, Sean Patrick Flanery, Joey Lauren Adams, Mimi Rogers and more. On casting his last film in NYC, he realized there is a huge bias against using local actors. As he explored the reasons why, he discovered some acting industry keys that can help local actors land the bigger film roles and avoid the mistakes that would leave them on the cutting room floor, or worse.
In this workshop, Millican will take the actors through exercises to illustrate these performance keys, concentrating on what they mean from the director’s point of view.
Cost is $89 and you can register for a morning session (8:30 to noon) or the afternoon session (1pm to 4:30). Class size is limited to 15. Click here to register and save your spot.
