This workshop offers a rare opportunity to get behind the scenes of the work between the director and his actors. Kristina Wagenbauer will enable you to explore all the stages of directing actors, from the crucial choice of casting, to the rehearsals at the table and the work on set.  Through several concrete examples from her films, Kristina will present her work methodology to get the best out of her actors and actresses. You will develop your ability to communicate your intentions to the actors and actresses and to translate them in terms of framing.

Workshop is given in French but questions may be asked in English.

You are encouraged to write a short note describing your project / your experience / your expectations so that the instructor can guide you best before March, 24th.
