Om boka

Both Sides of the Movie Camera

"Each screen director has a different path getting to the point when "Action!" and "Cut!!" are everyday occurrences, but the books on Directing and Acting tend to look and read the same. Anthony Barnett has come up with a new approach in his book with Q & A, answering the questions that will come up from potential directors and actors, rather than just giving them a slab of instructions.




He has also tackled one of the hardest bottlenecks in the training of directors and actors, which is finding and giving them suitable texts to work on. The numerous scripts to be found in his book will be of immense value to the lecturer and student alike, as they can now easily find appropriate material to put pictures onto.




Just as different working directors found different paths to working on a shoot, so this book finds different ways of helping potential directors and actors on their own journey".

Patrick Tucker, director of over 200 dramas for the screen. Author of Secrets of Screen Acting (3rd Edition Routledge 2014) Secrets of Screen Directing (Routledge 2019)

DIRECTOR: "I want to direct this screenplay. Having read it I can visualise exactly how I want it to be viewed. I can see how each character needs to look and speak. I'm going to be responsible for both sides of the camera - but how?"
ACTOR: "I've been cast in this film. I'm nervous about acting on screen. I've heard that there's a difference between that and stage acting. I want to give a screen performance - but how?"
