A guide by Istoryteller

Products sampled from this guide:
Great acting is not acting. It is being. You have to be the person you are playing. This comes from figuring out why people do the things they do, in all situations and putting yourself in their place. The writers and directors working today make great acting performances difficult because their work is not well characterized. The charactersí actions donít add up. Conversely, a well-characterized story can make great acting performance automatic. The actions add up for the actors and they are able to be the characters they are playing. Itís all about the writing. Learn the secret of acting from Marlon Brando. Experience mine with Errol Flynn. Learn how to communicate without speaking. Discover why the biggest stars are the greatest seducers. Learn how to identify great storytelling and directing.
