Masterclass: How To Get Actors To Do What You Want: Part I
How To Get Actors To Do What You Want: Part I
Season 1  |  Episode 7  |  Foxtel Arts  |  October 20, 2016

At the very core of the craft of directing is working with actors. Central to the Bobby Roth method of directing is to prepare as extensively as possible in preparation in order to be available to the actors during production. During production, time is especially precious, and actors require great attention and sensitivity to deliver their best performances. In this double-episode, we take an extended look at the question Bobby is most frequently asked by students and young film makers: how do you get actors to do what you want? Interviews with more than twenty leading actors shed a diverse array of insights into what is expected of directors and the best strategies for building productive working relationships with them.
