What type of communication do you normally establish with directors?
COLLABORATION IS KEY - BRINGING LIFE TO THE DIRECTORS VISION IS IMPORTANT BUT ALSO BRINGING YOURSELF TO THE ROLE IS KEY
I prefer directors who take risks with casting actors for different roles rather than stereotype. Directors are different and i can communicate with any kind of director even if they don't have time to coach actors. However ones who coach you and are interested in playing with the roles and getting out the best of you are the best!
It's important to have an open and trusting relationship with your director. You need to sing from the same hymn sheet and be able to have as honest a conversation about how you can share and merge your vision for the project as possible.
talking usually helps I find..
I have all ears open on the director. If I have any suggestions and or/ questions, I would ask the director instead of shouting it out loud. Most of the time, I am a kind spirited and amiable manner.
verbal communication, so I can talk to them whenever if I am having trouble in a scene or have questions
The process of filmmaking changes from project to project, but I try to establish a collaborative line of communication. When a director allows the process to be shared, the actor feels less like a puppet and more like a hand of the creator. Paul Shapiro, a notable television director (and friend), was the first director I'd worked with who would allow his actors room to breathe and explore (figuratively speaking), and that's the kind of experience I aspire to moving forward.
I like to be on a friendly basis with my directors. Perhaps we only talk while on set or rehearsal, but I think it is important to have a friendly connection in order to get the best understanding from the production.
I try to establish and honest and supportive relationship that goes both ways.
The communication i have with the directors I have worked with is open. They are the director and they have a vision it is your job to bring that vision to life with honesty and passion.
I've learned through directing & working w/ a lot of directors that it's usually best to try to figure things out & direct yourself as an actor as much as possible until or unless the director tells you otherwise,....
I really love the collaboration. Feeling like you're on the same team working towards a common goal. I want a director to be specific about what he or she wants while also being open to hearing any ideas that I have. We're both telling the same story, we just have different responsibilities, but they tie together.
They'll generally let me do what I want until they don't like something. Then they'll give notes and I'll make adjustments.
Personal phone calls, meetings.
