9780099471974: Shooting The Actor

A companion volume to Being an Actor, Callow's classic text about the experience of acting in the theatre, Shooting the Actor reveals the truth about film acting. The book describes his film work, from Amadeus to Four Weddings and a Funeral, from Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls to Shakespeare in Love.

Its centrepiece is a hilarious and sometimes agonising account of the making of Manifesto, shot in the former Yugoslavia. When Callow first met the film's director Dušan Makavejev to discuss the movie, they both got on famously. Months later the two were barely speaking. Insightful and always entertaining, Shooting the Actor reveals more than any formal guide could about the process of film-making and the highly complex nature of being both actor and director.

Review:

"A rare book: a genuinely frank and self-revealing account of an actor's nightmare made real. Comic and even touching" (Sir Richard Eyre)

"The tale is breathless... works up a gallop" ( Observer)

From the Publisher:

The classic account of filmmaking gone wrong, completely revised and expanded to include new material on the making of A Room with a View, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love and the 2002 Oscar Award winner for Best Foreign Film, No Man's Land.
