On Monday, January 18, 2010, the Austin Film Meet gathered at the Rude Mechanicals' Off Center theatre in Austin, Texas, for an amazing presentation by Meisner instructor CC Courtney. More than 60 people attended and two scenes and one monologue were performed.
Of course, Austin Film Meet events are always better in person, but luckily Val Gameiro generously recorded the event for those who weren't able to make it. Watch below and you will learn some great tips on how to work direct your actors to outstanding performances. Feel free to share this, but please link to the blog page (http://www.austinfilmmeet.com/blog/2010/01/26/cccourtney/), not just the videos, so everyone gets appropriate credit.
