This video is to show you the most common ways on How to Set Marks
for Actors. From using a "T" Shape mark , Toe Mark, Box Mark, Double
Toe Box mark... you can choose what works better for you and your
actors.
Using Marks for actors may seem like a waste a time, but it will actually save you time making sure the actors hit their mark every take.

Learning how to hit marks accurately and seamlessly is a vital component of good technique and something all actors must master.

The only time I don't use marks to mark the actors position is on wide
shots, instead I ask them to find references within the set props.
