Allowing mistakes: Creating a Short Film: 04 Working with Actors

During acting rehearsals, it's important for directors to allow the cast to be more open and loose, and to allow them to make mistakes; to push too hard, or be too gentle; to try a variety of alternate ways to play a scene. Allowing mistakes while rehearsing allows actors to explore options and be more creative with the performance of the character.
