modern vs. old-fashioned acting


           The modern way to act is to learn all of the principles of acting, then forget that you know them.

           In modern acting, the gesture is smaller and left unfinished: the ragged edge.

           In modern acting, acting is for the camera 98% of the time.

           Key to modern art is what I call the ragged edge. The same goes for modern acting.

           The emphasis is on behavior first, the dialogue is secondary.


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