An Actor s Work Book Excerpt:

Stanislavski’s ‘system’ has dominated actor-training in the West since his writings were first translated into English in the 1920s and 30s. His systematic attempt to outline a psycho-physical technique for acting single-handedly revolutionized standards of acting in the theatre. Until now, readers and students have had to contend with inaccurate, misleading and difficult-to-read English-language versions. Some of the mistranslations have resulted in profound distortions in the way his system has been interpreted and taught. At last, Jean Benedetti has succeeded in translating Stanislavski’s huge manual into a lively, fascinating and accurate text in English. He has remained faithful to the author's original intentions, putting the two books previously known as An Actor Prepares and Building A Character back together into one volume, and in a colloquial and readable style for today's actors. The result is a major contribution to the theatre, and a service to one of the great innovators of the twentieth century.

A Mouthful of Money Book Excerpt:

The Indian Voice Over Industry has evolved into a significantly professional and diverse field over the years. But what is still missing is written and formalized literature - be it articles, blogs, magazines or books by industry professionals that detail every aspect, technique, process, etc. This book is a humble attempt to document several facets of the voicing world, especially, in the Indian context. Not all aspiring voice-over artists can afford personal coaching and mentoring, even if they have the passion and talent in them. When one enters the market without any formal training, it is as good as playing blindfolded darts. Often when someone explores the market but struggles to live up to the expectations, they give up and quit. This book hopes to demystify the art of voice acting and provide a platform for all budding voice-over artists to have a chance at becoming the next industry expert. A ready reckoner, this is a textbook for aspiring voice-over artists to understand the nuances of the voice, learn plenty of vocal exercises, voice culture, vocal tricks, and thus learn the knack of earning money with their voice.

The Shakespeare Toolkit Book Excerpt:

Brian Rose has condensed decades of acting and teaching Shakespeare into a set of tools to increase actors’ confidence in playing characters more truthfully. The Toolkit begins by treating verse-dialogue as sentences – finding the common ground between daily speech and Shakespeare’s carefully crafted language. By seeing the verse as sentences embodying thoughts, the actor is freer to speak them as if they were their own. They become less alien as verse and less intimidating than when tagged as “Shakespeare.”

Asian American Actors Book Excerpt:

The acting profession is increasingly drawing more and more actors of Asian descent. Yet, even with the success of television programs (Martial Law), films (Mulan), and even Broadway plays (Miss Saigon) that include Asian characters, there are still limited roles for these actors. In the past, Asian characters like Charlie Chan and Fu Manchu were played by non-Asian actors in makeup. Many of the roles available for Asians today tend to be stereotypical: kung-fu sidekicks, emasculated or gang-member males, sexually accessible females, comic characters with a poor command of English. Seldom are Asian actors cast in race-neutral roles. Despite these obstacles, many excellent Asian actors continue to seek their places on screen and stage. This analysis of Asian American opportunities and experiences in the acting profession features the narratives of both aspiring and established Asian-American actors, providing a detailed examination of the opportunities, prejudices, and fears they face and the goals they set for themselves. The book covers the insights of both New York and Hollywood based actors, both the well known and the up-and-coming, and includes photographs, bibliography and index.
