Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The author discovered on his first day of acting for a TV movie that years of experience in stage acting and graduate education can be inadequate for the technical requirements of film acting. He wrote this book in the hopes that other actors making the transition from stage to film will be better prepared. The goal here is as much to familiarize the actor with the basics as to develop acting techniques. Two-thirds of the book is written in dialog form. A "guardian angel" introduces an actor new to movies to the artistic and technical crew and their respective roles and responsibilities. The "angel" also provides insight for the actor on how to work technically with the camera in order to meet the demands of film. While the dialog style becomes tiring, there is a lot of good information here. Recommended.-J. Sara Paulk, Satilla Regional Lib., Douglas, Ga.
