Legal Procedures and Terminology for Court Reporters and Paralegals / Edition 1

Paperback (Print)
Not Available on


Designed as an introduction to the fundamentals of acting at the undergraduate or high school level. It enhances individuals appreciation of the art of acting by helping them realize that they already possess, in principle, the basic skills of the actor: the ability to play a role, the ability to fulfill the sense of drama and to structure dramatic scenes, and the capacity to express emotion. Without losing its simplicity, directness, and enjoyable and readable style, this new revised and enlarged edition has benefited from extensive suggestions by teachers who have used it successfully. Drawing exercises and examples from students' everyday lives and from well-known films and television programs, Robert Benedetti succeeds in deducing dramatic principles from those experiences and then applying them to everyday life for artistic purpose. The Actor in You provides a direct, concise presentation and explanation of fundamentals for beginners, and includes both individual and group exercises throughout to help students realize and experience the basic skills of acting. It provides balanced coverage of acting for both stage and camera by drawing on principles from film and television and extending them to the stage. An introductory text for all those interested in learning and understanding the basic techniques of acting
