THINKING ABOUT ACTING
• Watching a scene without audio can often draw your attention to how acting contributes to the narrative.
• Consider how the facial expression, eye movement and gestures of an actor contribute to the narrative.
• How an actor delivers a line is important. The words may have one meaning, their delivery another.
• Acting is often used in conjunction with other production elements. Close-ups are often used by directors to emphasise the expression on an actor’s face.
