Passing on a great set of posts on the basic tools of acting

October 24, 2011

This one will take you a while to get through, but it’s well worth it!

In Part I, Bruce Miller talks about script analysis, synthesis, feeling versus doing, playing an action, and the craft of acting

In Part II, he talks further about conflict as the engine of drama, and matching physical action with the character you’re playing.

In Part III, he discusses the importance of listening and gives the classic Meisner approach to practicing listening.

These articles are a tremendous resource for you and your actors as you breathe life into your material.
