About this deal

Caine teaches you how to properly prepare for a shoot, focus on your performance and not others', how to act on and off set, becoming another character, how to deal with directors, and how to invent yourself as an actor.

Most of the acting topics that are covered in the book are explained in more detail in the masterclass.Sir Michael Caine, CBE was born Maurice Joseph Micklewaite near Elephant and Castle in South London. I was hoping for more insight on techniques in front of the camera - similar to Michael Caine's great acting masterclass from 1987 (I believe), which can be found on YouTube. I questioned this with the seller and he - Gary from Quantum Leap - assured me there should be no problem. So many things kept in the dark brought to light I never thought about in film acting and Caine’s stories, analogies, etc.

Caine always loves to talk about his rough-and-tumble cockney upbringing; I guess I can't blame him.Mr Caine knows exactly what he’s doing and his advice is the most helpful I’ve found so far on acting for the camera. Michael Caine teaches the art of movie acting to five young actors, who perform scenes from Alfie (1966), Deathtrap (1982) and Educating Rita (1983). Me parece que equilibró bastante bien las historias personales (con las que varias veces me reí bastante), las opiniones, consejos sobre la técnica y el trabajo en equipo. Caine plays an agent described as a ‘trickster, insubordinate, someone who refused to follow the rules. This is definitely invaluable material for anyone who wants to go into film (and in some ways theatre) from all aspects or anyone who’s every wanted a detailed idea of what a makes a film actor a professional.

He was insolent, good-humoured and wore thick dark glasses, which was unusual for male leads of the day. He is a major Hollywood film star and two-time Academy Award winner with a career spanning over sixty years. I've been fascinated by filmmaking in recent years (especially after watching the Korean drama Alchemy of Souls) and want to learn as much as possible about what goes on behind the scenes.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. I burst with excitement when I got the role and was sweaty and nervous; convinced I was going to blow it - and this book helped me through it. The film may ignite a strong emotional response, you may even lose yourself in the story and feel the turmoil, the thrills and the fear of a character, much more than even a book, as it’s a visual and auditory soundscape.

A keen awareness of picture continuity is essential in insuring an actor's valuable time on screen, in addition to increasing a thespian's chances of being hired again. I had already learned most of his lessons in terms of film sets but it was a nice refresher and reminder especially about not getting in people's way. He tells you about competitveness bewteen actors that some thrive on, but he does not like to be competitive and does not think it helps his acting career to be like that. Michael Caine talks about his experiences and offers valuable advice to actors who have little experience on set. I did very much enjoy what Caine had to say, even when I did not understand what he was talking about.In this book actor Michael Caine describes being a leading actor in films, he says that his job is the carry the entire film and give life to the filmmaker’s vision. At the time he is watching a pornographic film that has his school girl niece being taken advantage of by corrupt adults. This book is particularly helpful to actors who are crossing over from theater acting to film acting. Acting students attending auditions now might face a completely different landscape when it comes to auditions and getting parts. His first major starring roles, beginning in the 1960s, include 'Zulu,' 'The Ipcress File,' and 'Alfie.
