About this deal

At the time he is watching a pornographic film that has his school girl niece being taken advantage of by corrupt adults. 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.

Dalla viva voce di un grande attore, quello che chi sta dietro la macchina da presa dovrebbe sapere. This new revised and expanded edition features great photos throughout, with chapters on: Preparation, In Front of the Camera - Before You Shoot, The Take, Characters, Directors, On Being a Star, and much more. Although he makes several references to other actors' bad behaviors, the only person he names by name is Anthony Quinn. 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.I also have to add that one of the main treats i took from reading this short gem was how Caine, as big a movie actor as he is, imparts his knowledge with such warmth.

So many things kept in the dark brought to light I never thought about in film acting and Caine’s stories, analogies, etc. 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. I was a Cockney boy and obviously didn’t fit anybody’s idea of what an actor was supposed to be, so I decided to put together elements that added up to a memorable package. Michael Caine teaches the art of movie acting to five young actors, who perform scenes from Alfie (1966), Deathtrap (1982) and Educating Rita (1983). I actually have no imminent plans to appear in a movie, so I didn't really need the advice given here.He talks about entering sets where he only had one line to speak, waiting for hours to say that one line and that many stars on the film sets could be very arrogant and refused to talk to anyone below them.

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. Un acercamiento totalmente amigable para el actor en formación e incluso meros aficionados a dicho arte; donde no sólo cuenta su propia experiencia frente a la cámara, sino que comparte consejos que pueden tener impacto en la carrera propia para bien o para mal. When sitting around set, waiting for the lighting professionals to make it just right, I'll turn to my fellow actors and say: "We're paid to wait.

I questioned this with the seller and he - Gary from Quantum Leap - assured me there should be no problem. A professional killer crying about the loss of innocence and the brutality of human beings, which sends him into a savage rage of anger. Caine uses humor and personal experiences from the start to the height of his career to impart knowledge about the do’s and dont’s of the acting business. I would say that is an astute observation for some films; dramas, adventures, thrillers, and comedy can be a form of escapism. If anyone is interested in a recommendation, Bobbie O'Steen's The Invisible Cut: How Editors Make Movie Magic seems like a good start, although I'm still reading the first chapter.

Sir Michael Caine, CBE was born Maurice Joseph Micklewaite near Elephant and Castle in South London. Then word spread that I was quite amenable, so I became “that easy-to-work-with working-class actor who wears glasses and smokes a cigar. Rather than try explaining everything with endless details, Michael Caine just gives it to the reader plain and simple, which is the reason why i truly appreciate this book. The film world allows the viewer to feel a heightened sense of excitement and participation with the fictional characters. Most of the acting topics that are covered in the book are explained in more detail in the masterclass.

His first major starring roles, beginning in the 1960s, include 'Zulu,' 'The Ipcress File,' and 'Alfie. This book is easy to read and full of interesting information about acting, the film world and technical information as well as personal stories by Michael Caine. 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.
