Naked Cinema : Working with Actors, Paperback / softback Book

Naked Cinema : Working with Actors Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Sally Potter has been renowned for her rapport with actors, and for the luminous performances she works with them to produce.

Now she strips bare the art and craft of directing actors for the camera, from casting a film to the moment of first screening when the work goes public. A brilliant writer for the screen, here Potter shows herself to be expert at translating the experience of film directing to the page.

She addresses us in prose that is both unsentimental and inspired, tracing the energies that pass between actor, director and audience; shaping for the reader the acts of transmission and imagination, performance and witness, the sum of which make up a film. In addition to the core text, the book contains interviews with actors with whom Sally Potter has worked, whose voices will counterpoint Sally Potter's, and will inform and illuminate the reader's sense of her work.

Those interviewed include: Julie Christie, Jude Law, Judi Dench, Simon Abkarian, Annette Benning, Timothy Spall, Steve Buscemi, Riz Ahmed, Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, and Lily Cole.
