Secrets of Screen Acting Reviews
While I'll likely never be in front of the camera, I've always enjoyed the behind-the-scenes specials and the audio commentary on DVDs and such. This book was a fascinating look at what's going on behind and around the camera.Helpful examples, the glossary, the fair examination of other schools of thought - all this and more are included in a well-organized and interesting format. I can't imagine any actor picking up Tucker's book and not at least be refreshed on a strong point if not outright learning something new. Listening to this book has changed the way I'll be watching TV for a while.David Lawrence did a fine job reading this book. Also, if you're getting the audio version of Secrets of Screen Acting, be sure to download the included PDF for visual references!--I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.--
This is a great introductory book about acting for the camera. The language is very accessible and it includes pictures to further illustrate the given information. The focus is on debunking the myths about screen acting and comparing screen acting to stage acting and highlighting their differences.
If you have some acting experience and are looking to do some camera-work, this book should be your bible.
This is good. A detailed straightforward outline for the business. Great job, a plus for any library. And I think any level. It's great for beginners but can always be used as a refresher with more experienced actors.
Entertaining. Philosophical. Funny. Practical. Tactical. Secrets of Screen Acting has been - and continues to be - a terrific resource for me as I work with characters who inhabit the world of screen acting.
