green light, red light




The Art of Directing green light and red light.

The third eye watch for:

What should the character be doing?

Director gives green light and red light. Must tell the story.

Self indulgent by actors. Don't let actors take over the scene.
Good moves coming from the actors.

Director hire talented people, then give them their head. Actors are not lonely.


     Red light: phony and fake.



     Green light: honest and real.

     Director measure the actors truth. Did the audience accept it. Is it going the way of the story? Director gives red light if it is phony or fake.

"In the end, it can't look like acting."
