body language



  1. Learn body language.
  2. Audience is watching body language, not dialogue.
  3. Body language: (animals sense fear). Get the emotion going.
  4. Body language: (He grabs her, he is drowning in life.) It has to be in every moment.
  5. Conversation is behavior, do things that say things, it is body language. Add behavior, it tells you more than dialogue.
  6. In body language do it once, audience won't stand repetition.
  7. Watch out for certainty, we don't know what is going to happen. Look for real and sound real. Give up insecurity, also can't play from line to line. Films are about body language, conflict and moment to moment.
  8. We have to see body language, make everything physical.

"In the end, it can't look like acting."
