I get a lot of questions from people starting out in filmmaking and acting.
And there’s one question in particular that I get from both groups of people that’s very similar.
From directors, it’s “How do I work with actors?”
From actors, it’s “How do I work with the director?”
Filmmaking is a very collaborative process, and it’s super important for the director and actors to be able to work together on a film set. For some reason this seems to be very uncomfortable for people starting out.
People are always questioning themselves…
Should I do this?
Should I not do that?
Will this make the director mad?
Will these people think I don’t know what I’m doing?
I’ve worked with lots of people on both sides of the camera, and I’ve learned a lot about how they work together.
I took what I’ve heard from experienced directors and actors and came up with a basic framework to guide you along the way.
Of course, there’s a lot of small things that you’ll only learn from the experience of working on set, and working with other people.
But these are some pretty basic ideas that can help get you going.
A list of DOs and DON’Ts that will better prepare you for working with people on a film set.
A “Golden Rules” of collaboration, if you will.
I’ve done this from the perspective of both an actor and a filmmaker, so it’s good information no matter what side of the camera you’re on.
