When it was first published in 1993, Secrets of Screen Acting broke
new ground in explaining how acting for the camera is different
from acting on stage. Reaction time is altered, physical timing and
placement are reconceived, and the proportions of the digital frame
itself become the measure of all things, so the director must
conceptualize each image in terms of this new rectangle and actors
must 'fit' into the frame. Based on a revolutionary non-Method
approach to acting, this book shows what actually works: how an
actor, an announcer--anyone working in front of the cameras--gives
excellent performances on screen.Instead of starting with what is
real and trying to wrestle that onto the screen, Patrick Tucker
explains how to work with the realities of a shoot and work from
there towards the real. His step-by-step guide to the elements of
effective screen acting is an extension and explanation of a
lifetime of work in the field, containing over 50 acting exercises
and the tried-and-tested Screen Acting Checklist. As well as being
completely updated to cover new techniques, film references and
insights, this third edition now includes a set of Film Clip Time
Codes for each film. These not only itemise the films discussed in
each chapter, but also pinpoint the precise moments where each
example can be found so that students, teachers, and professional
actors can refer to them quickly and easily.
