Are you really prepared to be an on-camera actor? It’s a valid question since most actors will fail if they are not. Do you feel confident- in control of how your face expresses your more intimate thoughts and feelings when you’re in front of the camera?

Are you able to adjust them on demand? Do you know how intensely you’re experiencing an emotion internally and how intensely it’s being revealed- not just in your body and voice, but on your face? You see, almost all actors are trained for the stage.

Stage Training relies on the body and voice to communicate thought and feeling. On-camera acting relies on the body, voice and face. Unless you know how to control how your face expresses your thoughts, feelings and emotions you are a stage-trained actor and may not be fully prepared to work in front of the camera.

Acting Face to Face 2: How to Create Genuine Emotion for TV and Film (AFF2) is Book 2 in the Acting: Face to Face Series. It picks up right where Acting: Face to Face, Book 1, left off- with the path to Emotional Alignment.

The actor who has the tools and skills to create and control how and what their face communicates is the actor most suited to work in front of the camera. (First Edition) Acting Face to Face: the Actor’s Guide to Understanding How Your Face Communicates Emotion for TV and Film is the first book to define the significant difference between acting for the stage and acting for the camera.

That difference being how your face communicates thought, feeling and emotion. Acting Face to Face is also the first book in a series about the Language of the Face – or how the face communicates nonverbally. This book is particularly useful for actors transitioning from stage to screen, by clearly defining the difference.

On stage, you communicate with your body and voice; on camera, you need to add a third means of communication your face. When you understand this difference, you also understand why only a small percentage of actors get the majority of on-camera work.

Acting Face to Face reveals the tools you’ll need to level the playing field. Acting Face to Face exposes the myths and misconceptions about on-camera while addressing some of the major challenges most actors face when relying solely on their stage-acting training to work in front of the camera.
