My Method #1

My largest concern when tackling a film project is to communicate a tangible and organic story. While, arguably, most of fluidity of a film comes in post-production, probably as important is the performance of the actors. Key to this is how the director communicates what he wants and expects from the actor. If the director does not clarify what he/she desires from an actors performance, or if the actor lacks confidence in their action, this will naturally be portrayed on screen. This has become all the more evident to me since, so far, in this studio we have been using each other as actors, mostly likely none of whom are actors, let alone professional actors. A self-conscious performance reminds the audience that they are watching a performance and a movie, a confident performance makes the audience forget they are watching an actor.
