- Acting lessons for Actors and Directors. Analyze scripts and manage successful castings.
Produced by George Lucas and Randal Kleiser, this series of lectures are excerpts from Nina Foch’s directing class conducted at the University of Southern California in 2002. The lectures, organized into sections, cover script analysis, casting, directing, and acting. Spend some time watching Nina, learn from her and implement her ideas into your own work. You’ll be amazed how far she can take you.
Who can benefit from Nina Foch’s course? Directors? Absolutely. Actors? Yes. But, it’s equally valuable for writers, editors, producers, and anyone with more than a passing interest in the art and craft of filmmaking. This material can be used for an entire course, as part of a course, or a rich reference source to immerse yourself in your craft.
- Filmmakers, Actors, Teachers, Students, Animators, Singers, Lecturers and anyone with a passion for the craft of cinema
Learn how to create the circumstances and places the characters are coming from and where they are going.
Generalities can kill a performance. This exercise teaches how being specific can make an audience believe in the truth of the scene.
Nina boiled down the essence of delivering a line into three specific words. When an actor follows these steps, in order, the line will be delivered more believably than they would if simply memorized and repeated.
In these scene analyses, watch Nina force her students to examine every frame, every detail, every moment, and every line of their scenes. Some of her words may seem harsh, or unfair. But, Nina always states that when you make a film, you have to live with these details for the rest of your life.
