“I have a lot of sympathy for actors.”
Brett Simmons is a writer/director of film and television, working on projects that include “Husk”, “You Might Be The Killer” and the CW tv series “Pandora.
He went to school at Chapman University in Southern California and has actually…wait for it…taken acting classes so he says he gets actors and “understands where they’re coming from.” The problem with most directors, as he sees it, is that when they are trained they are directing other directors…not actors. So when it comes time to work with actors on set or even in the audition room, they may not have a fluid and easy relationship to those actors.
Hear how Brett overcomes that and what he says makes actors stand out in the audition room in this episode.
