9780240805078: The Art of Film Acting: A Guide For Actors and Directors

This guide for actors and directors develops a valid method for training performers to act from their core--whether they are cold reading, auditioning, or performing for film or television. This book teaches actors how to achieve and respond to believable and honest emotions before the camera, and it maintains that the key to a successful performance lies in how the actors relate to one another and to the circumstances. Exercises, including script examples, throughout the book give readers an easy resource for practicing the principles outlined.

The Art of Film Acting applies a classic stage acting method (Stanislavsky) to the more intimate medium of performing before a camera, teaching readers to experience an emotion rather than to indicate it.

From the Inside Flap:

"Jeremiah provides profound insight into the simple truth of this craft. No acting. No ideas. Yet from this attentive void, alchemy is achieved as you learn to let the audience witness you experience another actor. Above plot, language, even intent, you'll realize achieving emotional truth through connectivity becomes paramount for storytelling. Jeremiah Comey is not just making better actors, but better filmmakers."—Billy Zane, actor in over 70 movies and TV shows, including Titanic, Memphis Bell, Tombstone, "Boston Public," and "Twin Peaks"

"The Art of Film Acting is a rare insight into what it takes to become a successful actor. Acting is playing. The Art of Film Acting is a great step-by-step approach in showing you how to free yourself from opinions to become organic in your work."—Adrian Paul, actor, director, and producer. Credits include Tracker, Storm Watch, and Highlander.
