Directing nonactors: Creating a Short Film: 04 Working with Actors

An amateur actor or non-actor is commonly found in independent film productions, or on student films. How do you direct non-actors? Amateurs are directed in the same way professional actors are - by trying to elicit a genuine performance. This is done by helping the actors find scene objectives, and giving them objective-oriented direction, while avoiding result-oriented direction.
