20 year independent film veteran, Fred Zara, teaches this course which is designed to help independent film directors gain a better understanding of how best to communicate and work with actors. Working with actors can be somewhat of a mystery for some filmmakers and it can also be intimidating to work with an experienced actor if you yourself do not have a lot of experience as a director.
If you are looking for more natural performances for your independent films to help you become a more effective storyteller, this course is for you. Some independent filmmakers simply do not have the necessary tools to help actors craft their characters and to best highlight the actor’s strengths.

Topics we will cover in this course are:

    • Things to do and not to do when working with actors
    • Communication tips when working with actors on set
    • Different ways to prepare with your Actors before shooting begins
    • How to use your words effectively
    • Other tips and things to try to help actors achieve their best performance
    • Strengthening the Director/Actor relationship

In this course students will learn how to collaborate better with their actors to help them achieve more believable performances in their films.
