The Art and Business of Performing in TV Commercials - Expanded Edition. While television commercials often elicit groans from the viewer, they mean work for actors and can be the bread-and-butter backbone of an actor's career, providing a safety net of income while he or she climbs the ladder to greater success. And for those actors who achieve face-to-product recognition, commercial work can provide handsome residuals for years to come. While many books on the market include some information on commercial work, Acting in the Million Dollar Minute deals exclusively with the art and business of acting in commercials. Here the art is narrow: script terminology and procedure, commercial dialogue, camera staging, working the product, sample commercial scripts, and detailed analysis of how a commercial is actually shot; while the business side, reflecting the general industry, broadens to include training, photos, the resume, unions, actor-agency contracts, the interview, the screen test, callbacks, pay and working conditions, and a complete list of SAG and AFTRA offices. In this revised and updated edition, this book provides direction on how to: Decipher the meaning behind the commercial script; Begin and end every commercial performance; Get the auditioners' attention immediately when the camera begins rolling; Compel the auditioners, with the sheer force of your performance, to actually watch your playback tape; Take the camera from another actor (i.e. upstaging); Give the director a performance that makes his or her job easier in the editing room.

How to Live Like a Star Before You Become One. A guide for actors, and everyone else, to getting the best for less and surviving, thriving and living the good life in the Big Apple. Here is the ultimate guidebook for the hordes of aspiring young performers who arrive in the Big City determined to climb the ladder to stardom. But the purpose of Craig Wroe, an actor himself, is not to provide instruction on how to refine acting, singing or dancing talents or how to land a job in the chorus of The Producers. Plenty of other books do that. His aim is far broader - to help you survive in the crowded, frantic, expensive maelstrom that is New York. From finding a decent, reasonably inexpensive place to live to finding competent, reasonably inexpensive dental care, from getting computer training to organize your day-to-day existence to joining a gym to harden your body, from eating well to dressing better - all on a tight budget - there is virtually no aspect of life in New York that is not covered in this book. And it not only names names; it gives addresses and phone numbers as well. And keep in mind that newly-arrived lawyers, accountants, models, writers-you name them-need these things too.

Bravo, Shakespeare. Even today, his plays challenge celebrated actors to hone their skills and electrify audiences. Imagine the process actors undergo to recreate these spellbinding roles on stage. In an interview with the author, Kevin Kline declared that playing Shakespeare uses a different muscle group in your head. Actors Talk About Shakespeare features personal interviews with a stellar collection of prominent American, Canadian, and British performers of Shakespeare onstage, including Kevin Kline, Kenneth Branagh, Derek Jacobi, Stacy Keach, Zoe Caldwell, Martha Henry, William Hutt, Tony Church, Nicholas Pennell, and Geoff Hutchings. In conversations equivalent to a magician telling his secrets, Mary Z. Maher uncovers the actors' process. The book speaks to theater patrons, to actors both novice and experienced, and to educators who teach Shakespeare. Each chapter profiles a career in context, using the actor's words along with supporting research material. The result is a treasury of talents, tactics, and tales from veteran performers who return often to Shakespeare from careers in film and television. SERIES: Limelight. Media: Softcover. .

Acting and Singing with Archetypes      Add to Cart      View price.

The journeys in Acting and Singing with Archetypes are based on the Voices of the Archetypes and Myths workshops that Frankie Armstrong has conducted throughout Europe, Australia, and the United States. Primarily geared toward theatre teachers, directors, and theatre workshop leaders, this groundbreaking, interactive book - with an accompanying CD - shows actors and singers how to expand their creative choices by taking journeys to find the archetypes within themselves. Archetypes are universal essences that we all recognize: the Mother, the Lover, the Trickster, the Spiritual and Temporal Leader. Each one is not a fully developed character but rather its essence - images, forms, voices, bodies and psychological elements - around which a performer can organize a portrayal and begin full character development. The first part of the book contains sixteen archetype journeys. Each archetype journey is accompanied by preparatory explorations for the voice, body, and imagination. The CD, sung by Ms. Armstrong, provides songs and examples of vocal ornamentation to prepare and assist the journeyer. The second part of the book contains suggestions on how to apply the discoveries to real acting situations, explaining how to use the archetypes in the creation of multifaceted characters and in classroom explorations such as mask making, improvisation, monologue, scene and song work, and devising theatre.

Audio Sampler (includes actor script and listening CD). AUDSAMPLER. Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Bugsy Malone Junior is good, clean, comedic fun! Two gangs comprised completely of children square off in a 1920's rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the splurge gun (a weapon that shoots whip cream). Now Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster Limelight, when he becomes the last chance Fat Sam's gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love Blousey; but that just isn't in the cards for our hero. Bugsy Malone Junior includes a chorus, which may be expanded by adding as many members to Dandy Dan's and Fat Sam's gangs as your stage can accommodate. The Grand Slam Girls can also be expanded to incorporate more singing and dancing girls! Go to the Bugsy Malone JR. show page See other Broadway Junior musicals SERIES: Recorded Promo - Stockable.

This work composed by Rieding demands tonal beauty at an easy technical level, allows for temperament and effectively brings the soloist into the Limelight. This edition is part of the new Schott Student Edition series which offers varied literature at five different levels of difficulty,from 1 (easy) to 5 (difficult), for instrumental lessons. All editions of the series are available as printed editions or digitally as PDF download. SERIES: String. Media: Softcover. .

A Life in and Out of the Theatre. Director, scenic designer, producer, author, educator and pioneer, Norris Houghton has done virtually everything a non-actor can do in the theatre except write a play. His has been a long and wonderfully eventful life, lived among the gifted, the wise, the wealthy, and the powerful; Houghton writes of it with modesty and humor, with a keen eye for the illuminating detail, and with equal relish for the great occasions he created for himself and those into which he was thrust by uncanny circumstance. Above all, he looks back on his eight decades of achievement and failure with total and disarming honesty. The result for the reader is a fascinating journey through most of this century with a gentle but determined man who, in a very real way, has helped to change his world. SERIES: Limelight.

America's Longest-Running Play. Frequently called the Miracle on Sullivan Street (in New York's Greenwich Village), The Fantasticks has been the most-often performed musical around the world, setting more national and international longevity records than any musical in theater history. With the advent of the show's New York closing, Donald C. Farber and Robert Viagras have completely updated the 1991 edition of their best-selling book. The Amazing Story is the detailed history of how this fabulously successful show by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt came into being, and how and why it succeeded. In tracing the evolution of the show from an idea to a cultural phenomenon, the book takes readers through the countless auditions to attract backers, the search for theaters to hold tryouts (which indicated disaster), and eventual popular success. Among the actors who have performed in the musical are Anna Maria Alberghetti, Richard Chamberlain, Elliott Gould, Bert Lahr, Liza Minnelli, Robert Goulet, and Glenn Close. This updated edition includes new photos of the show's many productions and stars, recent interviews with performers, writers, and others associated with the musical, and suprising revelations that could not be told until the show's closing on Off Broadway.

Key Selections from the Film Noir Reader Series. In this essential study of film noir, editors Alain Silver and James Ursini select the most significant and influential articles on the movement from their highly respected Film Noir Reader series and assemble them into a single, convenient, heavily illustrated volume. Still included, of course, are many rare early articles and such seminal essays as Borde and Chaumeton's Towards a Definition of Film Noir from Panorama du Film Noir Americain, Paul Schrader's Notes on Film Noir, and Paint It Black: the Family Tree of the Film Noir by Raymond Durgnat. With newer studies such as Lounge Time by Vivian Sobchack, Manufacturing Heroines in Classic Noir Films by Sheri Chinen Biesen, and Voices from the Deep: Film Noir as Psychodrama J. P. Telotte, this collection of over 30 articles probes this most influential American film movement from varying angles: formalist, feminist, structuralist, sociological, and stylistic; narrative-thematic historical, and even from the point of view of a pure aficionado. There is something in this volume for every student or devotee of film noir. Plus like the readers that have proven an invaluable tool for academics planning a syllabus, it can serve as the most complete core text for any of the myriad of film noir courses taught throughout the world.

Film Noir Light and Shadow      Add to Cart      View price.

No image available.

Despite a glut of black and white filters, the digital revolution in videography has all but abandoned the art, science, beauty, and power of cinematic lighting that literally illuminated the Golden Age of motion pictures. Film Noir Light and Shadow explores an era before CGI - a time when every photon mattered and the lighting of a set served a grander purpose than simply rendering its subjects visible. Edited by Alain Silver and James Ursini, the duo behind numerous critically acclaimed studies of other aspects of noir, this anthology presents a series of essays that examine the visual style of the filmmakers of cinema's classic period. Some focus on individual pictures or directors; others discuss elements of style or sub-groups of movies within the movement. All are sharply focused on what makes the noir phenomenon unique in American - and global - cinematic history. Aside from highlighting the innovative work of its editors and their late colleague Robert Porfirio, Film Noir Light and Shadow also shares its light with a bevy of contributors who have written and edited their own books on the subject - a list of luminaries that includes Sheri Chinen Biesen, Shannon Clute and Richard Edwards, Julie Grossman, Delphine Letort, Robert Miklitsch, R. Barton Palmer, Homer Pettey, Marlisa Santos, Imogen Sara Smith, and Tony Williams. As befits the topic, this volume is lavishly illustrated with 500 images that capture the richness and breadth of the classic period's imagery, making it an ideal companion for students of the genre, film historians, sprocket fiends, and the retrospectively inclined.

The Crucial Films and Themes. The earlier Film Noir Readers, which now boast a combined sale of well over 30,000 copies, have all quite deliberately conveyed a sweeping overview of the classic period, demonstrating how broad and inclusive noir movies are. Film Noir Reader 4 moves in a different direction. Its purpose is to identify the key films and motifs of noir and to analyze in depth the prototypical pictures that, while vivid examples of certain cinematic themes, bend and break their molds to find new ways to enthrall and frighten us. Like its predecessors, Film Noir Reader 4 is generously illustrated and features essays by such respected film critics and scholars as Robin Wood, J.P. Telotte, R. Barton Palmer, and Robert Porfirio. All have as their purpose to explain why and how these classic films work; the way screenplay, direction, acting, cinematography, editing and all the other filmmaking crafts blended together to produce work that exemplifies both a particular movement in film history and the innovations that keep the noir style fresh and compelling.

Throughout this easy-to-read memoir, the author writes about his personal life interwoven with the lives of music legends, including Benny Goodman, Leonard Bernstein, and Igor Stravinsky, and ballet stars, such as Rudolf Nureyev, Margot Fonteyn, George Balachine, and prima ballerina for the Bolshoi Ballet, Maya Plisetskaya. His close personal and working relationship with Sol Hurok brought Mr. Gershunoff into the company of such diverse personalities as Warren Beatty, Natalie Wood, Howard Hughes, and the Kennedys. His involvement with the Soviet/American Cultural Exchange Program brought Gershunoff into the everyday lives of Soviet performers during a tension-filled time between the US and USSR.

Passing Dance Through Time. A critic and writer on dance for well over twenty years, Barbara Newman has gone in search of teachers and coaches, directors, choreographers and stagers - former dancers who had turned the focus of their own experience on others - to explain the state of ballet today. Among leaders of the dance world the author interviewed were Suki Schorer, Helgi Tomasson, Mark Morris, Violette Verdy and 14 other artists whose work she knew and respected, most of them active outside of New York and London. Newman is not interested in dance as an aesthetic abstraction, and the people who answered her questions were not speaking theoretically. On the contrary, her speculation and their responses bring an elusive subject down to earth, illuminating a process that reaches back in history and forward to today, though its dreams are of a world no one can imagine.

A Primer for Directors, Writers, Actors, and Producers. Originally conceived as a workbook for young directors, The Little Blue Book for Filmmakers has become a handbook for easy reference, with all the information a student director/actor/producer needs to create a film, from inception through production, to sales, distribution, and exhibition. The book discusses issues faced by all beginning filmmakers, with a historical perspective that explains problems and solutions that reach back to the invention of movies at the turn of the last century, and stretch forward to include new digital technology and the popularization of videography as global self-expression. A valuable addition to the shelves of all film school instructors who've not had years of practical experience working in the trade, it's also a syllabus in itself and can be the foundation for a course schedule. More important, it's something every film student will want to own as a reference and guide. SERIES: Limelight. Media: Softcover. .

Music Minus One Piano Deluxe 2-CD Set. This impressive concerto has rightfully earned its nickname of 'Olympian' or 'Emperor.' Written in 1786, it enjoys many of Mozart's more mature trademarks, as well as relying heavily on counterpoint, and offers tremendous opportunity to the soloist. The first movement is majestic and broad in its development; the 'Larghetto' second movement is especially lovely, with a highly ornamented solo part; and the third movement is very free and wildly cheerful. Listen to virtuoso Bruce Levy perform the concerto with the Plovdiv Philharmonic and then step into the Limelight and try it on for size under the baton of Maestro Todorov - you will discover first-hand that this truly is one of Mozart's most enjoyable concerti. This deluxe 2CD set includes a second slow-tempo practice version of the accompaniments to help you get up to speed. Includes an authoritative, newly engraved music score printed on high-quality ivory paper, and a compact disc containing a complete reference recording in digital stereo, with soloist, followed by a second version in digital stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist; and a second compact disc containing the complete version of the concerto followed by a -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes.

No image available.

A Chorus Line, the biggest Broadway hit of its generation, is returning to Times Square in a major fall 2006 revival. The show is based on a remarkable series of taped discussions made in the mid 1970s with some of the top gypsies (veteran Broadway dancers), many of whom went on to play characters based on themselves in the Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical. In many ways, On the Line: The Creation of A Chorus Line is a continuation of the show itself. In this collective oral history, the 19 original cast members tell how they got involved with the project, how they labored through the months of workshops that shaped it, and what its success has meant for their lives and careers. They paint intimate and frank portraits of co-creators Michael Bennett, Joseph Papp, Ed Kleban - and each other. Originally published in 1990, the book has been updated to continue telling their stories over the past 16 years. Wayne Cilento (I Can Do That) has become a Tony-winning choreographer of shows like Wicked and Aida; Kelly Bishop (Can the adults smoke?) has become a TV star; Trish Garland has become a California fitness guru, and so forth.

Purple Rain: Music on Film explores in detail the behind-the-scenes struggles and triumphs of the film's making, from the trouble casting a female lead to star opposite Prince, to concerns that the movie's urban vibe and sound wouldn't play in Peoria. Featuring extensive new interviews with the film's director, producer, and assistant editor, Purple Rain reveals a 1980s cult-classic as you've never seen, heard or experienced it before.

Great Movie Speeches. If I want to send a message, I'll call Western Union. This famous line has been attributed to various movie moguls, yet while these moguls ruled the Hollywood studio system, movies were in the midst of a golden age of dialogue. Films included more messages, ideas, themes, and pontifications than they ever have since. Although producers trembled at commands from the front office, writers (the low men and women on the totem pole) went quietly to their typewriters and, as the subversive revolutionaries that most writers are, turned out prose that did send messages. How could they resist? They had the biggest and best platform in the world: Hollywood movies. The 200 speeches collected in Ready for My Close-Up! are from some of the best - and a few of the worst - films ever made. From Groucho Marx's I shot an elephant in my pajamas to Julia Roberts's What it takes to be a movie star, here is the wit and wisdom of the great Hollywood screenwriters. SERIES: Limelight.
