Session 2: Acting in Cinema | What difference does it make that film actors play to a camera instead of a live audience, or that what we perceive as a single performance is typically many performances edited together? How do human actors compete with animals, things, and cinema’s wider environments in film as opposed to theater? This seminar takes stock of the film actor as a force of narrative, a master of technique, and as an entity uniquely produced by film style. Led by Claire Sisco King
