Acting Techniques

Modern Acting traces itself back to Constantin Stanislavki in turn-of-the-century Russia. His teachings inspired most of the most commonly taught acting methods today including the Meisner, Adler and Strasberg systems. Other theater practitioners developed movement based systems of acting technique, while others developed a presentational acting style fitting to epic theater and theater of the absurd. This book introduces all these styles and the people who developed them into finely honed systems of art.


Theater veteran and acting teacher Joanna Merlin has written the definitive guide to auditioning for stage and screen, bringing to it a valuable dual perspective. She has spent her career on both sides of the auditioning process, both as an award-winning casting director who has worked with Harold Prince, Bernard Bertolucci, and James Ivory, and as an accomplished actor herself.

If you speak and read well, have a good imagination and are in search of a career that you can truly get excited about – you need to read this book.


Acting For Commercials

Acting in commercials can be among the most important types of work for an actor, both for the valuable visibility and the regular income involved. Despite this, few actors take the time to properly adapt and apply their skills for commercial work. This revised book provides hints addressing the challenges of appearing on camera, including: how to focus performance on the selling message; understanding and exploiting advertisers’ stereotypes; balancing control and improvisation in a brief time; analyzing advertising copy; and vocal problems.
