Judith Weston is an American author, script analyst, actress and teacher. She has written the great book: Directing Actors: Creating Memorable Performances for Film and Television.
The book is the first book of its kind. Other books on directing may contain a chapter on working with actors. This is the only one to investigate in detail what Judith calls “that sometimes painful, often frustrating, but potentially exhilarating relationship” between director and actor.
Since its publication “DIRECTING ACTORS” has become one of the top-selling directing books. Experienced and successful directors love it as much as new directors, and it has become required reading at Hollywood studios, as well as at all the major film schools.
