Directing Actors For Indie Filmmakers

Independent filmmakers are more than just directors. They play a major role in just about every job category on the crew list. Most filmmakers are so consumed with the actual logistics and making sure that they get "coverage" they can work with in post that the art of working with actors is sometimes lost. Time is precious on most shoots and you must plan the appropriate time you need to allow your actors to perform at their best. This webinar will walk through the steps of how you can create a better environment for your actors and actually get better performances from your actors with just a few changes in the way you currently work.
