about short rehearsal time?
Think that fluffing your lines will be the end of your career? Are you
afraid you'll be typecast? Is there such a thing as acting too much?
should a stage actor adjust performance for a camera? And how should an
actor behave backstage?
Actor's Survival Handbook
gives you answers to all these questions and many more. Written with
and humor, this utterly essential tool speaks to every actor's deepest
concerns. Drawing upon their years of experience on stage, backstage,
with the camera, Patrick Tucker and Christine Ozanne offer forthright
on topics from breathing to props, commitment to learning lines,
response to simply landing the job in the first place. The book is rich
with examples - both technical and inspirational. And because a
and an actor won't always agree, the two writers sometimes even offer
responses to a dilemma, giving the reader both an actor's take and a
take on a particular point.
