Overview

"One of the most technically focused on-camera manuals on the market... Morris looks at the neuroscience behind human emotions and what the camera actually captures--from the mechanics of dialogue, voice, and physicality, to discovering your own form of naturalistic acting." -Backstage.com

The Science of On-Camera Acting, an approach engineered for working screen-actors, is now distilled in a guide to help professionals increase bookings, offers, and refine on-camera skills.

These techniques are not affiliated with classic acting methods based on outdated psychology models. It is not theoretical, pop-psychology, or actor therapy; these techniques are derived from experience, developed through experimentation, and implemented with the single goal of making better artists. Professional actors know they are in service to an audience, be it a casting director or millions of moviegoers and cable subscribers. This method teaches creative proficiency under real-world demands in a fickle industry.

Featuring exclusive insights from one of the most influential psychologists of the past century, Dr. Paul Ekman, this unique, streamlined, science-based approach offers mastery of naturalism, comedy, and complex character work in the short time actors have to prepare for auditions and bookings. At the same time, these techniques keep professionals out of their heads and grounded in the moment, with uninterrupted access to a rich reservoir of impulse that will make you standout in a highly competitive field.

Read The Science of On-Camera Acting before your next audition and learn why actors call it "the best book you can find on screen acting."
