Review:

"I suppose if I had to say that someone discovered me, it would be Ian Bernard."
Harrison Ford, Actor

"{Film and Television Acting} is extremely valuable and rare. There really is a need for it. My first experience with film was quite difficult and I've seen that over and over again with actors who have never been on camera before."
John Lithgow, Actor

From the Author:

a very practical non-academic and real world approach.
This is a hands- on practical way to transfer stage training to acting for film and TV. It doesn't matter what method of acting you use, the book tells what happens on movies sets and how you can adapt your training to those circumstances. A new chapter with John Lithgow offers new insights to what the stage actor encounters when he or she first arrives on a movie set.
