Acting for Film Actors
Acting for Film Actors is a more subtle and intricate activity. The enumerations of subtle activities have to reflect off of the others within the film for it to work. Achieving the balance of being able to tightly work-off others is key in Acting for Film.
On stage the activities of the actors can over amplify and still work out. In many cases stage actors need to amplify their actions and demeanors, although not always the case.
Speaking out in expressive ways and being able to express yourself taking in the fullness of the stage is critical.

Acting for Film is different and more subtle. The Actor’s intension and ability to resonate that intension between your set surrounding and partnering actors is incredible.
In many cases the scenes intensity is the dramatic element. Intensity in scene work is an element that needs to be dealt with care. On a stage often the intention of the Actor can be looser and still be received by the audience.
Film Acting’s ability to communicate is a sensitive art form. The personalism that is available in details is a sought-after craft. It takes trust to establish the ability to personify during acting.

Relaxing is the Art form of Film
Gaining the ability to relax means that you are comfortable enough for your intensions to be read that are both your conscious intentions and your unconscious intensions.
Fake Acting will ensue if you are a narcissist. You do not and cannot get into a situation where you are trying to control your unconscious efforts. What the camera see’s is only partially your ability to influence. The reality of Acting for Film is that your unconscious doings are being recorded and captured by the camera.

If you are not able to relax and allow the images of the camera to film, you entirely than maybe you should consider a different career. The incredibleness of watching stars become stars is watching their process of relaxation as their career develops.
It is very interesting to see how an Actor develops their craft of relaxation in films over a 5-year period or longer. Many Actors will not develop this relaxation and those are the ones that are often presented in the industry through whatever negotiation they are involved in. They have no talent to relax or interest in allowing the camera to see what they are beyond what they want to present to the camera.
Emotional Preparation is a long topic and I have two books written that need editing before publication. The intricate topic of how the Actor for centuries has prepared goes well beyond the Hollywood feud of Realistic vs. Stylized Acting differences.
Emotional Preparation is typically taught to prepare the Actor for Film and for the beginning of the scenes functioning. There is a carry-over of that emotional charge throughout the film when it becomes activated by activities within the scene.
Gaining the ability to Emotional Prepare takes time and practice. Some people trains using Emotional Preparation to improve their sensibilities during acting. It softens their ability to have more than just a plain reality coloring them emotionally to achieve a deeper experience.
It is almost necessary for film to use Emotional Preparation. If you watch or were around the Rogers sets when Wayne was filming, you can see that John Wayne was never using Emotional Techniques Ever. But he was well aware his need to stay relaxed on film. During the Roy Rogers days the dames would bring the emotion and Wayne would be protective which gave the chemistry that existed.
New Neophyte Actors (actors with no experience) act to the point of doing but not the point of being. They do the scenes to execute the scenes the way that was done on the Rogers sets back in the day. This industry is more about selling ideas presented than any kind of artistic inclusions.
Making a scene about water rights to cover up the Hollywood gossip was a normal activity and use of entertainment film roles. The business of Hollywood doesn’t often have time for art, craft, or Emotional Preparation.
Acting for film requires more than just doing actions on screen. Doing actions on screen were the original film tests of the silent film era which were stored at what became the playhouse playboy mansion in later years to cover up ww2 bel air activities.
If this industry ever was caught for all it was involved in and it was taken out by barge into the ocean, it would sink so fast people would think it completely disappeared.
Do Not Present Yourself on Camera
Typically, presenting to the camera during a film scene will look like obvious acting. However, presentation with purpose can be very inviting.
Hopefully you have figured out how to relax and allow your real activities to be seen by the camera sometimes 2 feet from your face. Then understand that the inclusion of ideals is another thing to get into. It is not the preaching of ideals that most do in films that work.
Back negotiations are what drives entertainment creation. Stepping above the ruckus of your film set is the only option as an Actor. Acting for Film means not gaining the ability to ignore what occurs in the scene at the cost of selling the producers ideas.
Acting is about selling ideas and fictional histories on a business level, on an artistic level it is about emotion and artistry. The real ability for Acting for Film comes from finding your point of view and being able to be honest in your responses to the stimuli in your scenes.
Unless there is a subtext that is crafted, which is rare, that you are to present yourself in a certain way in a scene be as natural as possible.
Crafting a subtext for film is an achievable purpose which can really add to your own discovery as well as the project.
Involvement is Key
The main ingredient within the films that make them work is interaction. There is an openness that Actors work out if they figure out acting. Acting for Film often enables a test of their openness.
Openness of the Actor is an Involvement Key. Gaining the keys to acting is the gaining the keys to having real and truthful responses within your scenes. Even when you are filming scenes multiple times it is possible to keep productive in your spontaneity.
Emotions that you can put into involvement is another definition of what is talent.
