Jesper Trier Gissel began training film actors at Nørgaards Højskole in 2006. He soon took his point of departure in the simple but powerful, intuitive approach developed by Harold Guskin and dedicated his work to develop a course which could stay as true as possible to Guskin’s principles while accomodating a classroom full of actors. "The Generous Actor" contains a complete description of the course he now teaches (including his exercise flow choreography) and also his thoughts on art and acting developed over years of both academic studies, acting, and especially training actors. At this point Gissel has turned out a number of actors appearing and starring in Danish television and movie theatres and has established an solid network of directors, actors, casters, and producers in the Danish movie and television business. "The Generous Actor" also contains endorsements from a number of actors, directors, and acting coaches calling Gissel’s work, ‘useful and liberating for readers and actors‘, ‘a non-method that avoids the restraining rules of technique and liberates the artistic creativity of the individual’ and ‘no bullshit acting’.Among these are Danish Academy Award Nominee , Claes Quaade and life-long producer/director, Steen Herdel.

Acting skills for television and film are significantly different from those for the theatre. The majority of actors find work in television and film, yet very few acting courses give suitable training for it. Malcolm Taylor talks the actor through the filming processes so a precise picture is built up of how a programme is rehearsed, filmed and edited. The author starts by defining the roles of both the agent and the casting director in the actor's life. He describes the variety of work available: corporate films, commercials, feature films, soap operas and situation comedy. In addition there are illuminating interviews with David Jason, Ralph Jago (Principal of the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art), Roger Carey (Agent), Gill Titchmarsh (Casting Director), Leonard Lewis (EastEnders Producer) and Lindsay Anderson.

"Denis is a great actor and he’s always been my inspiration, since I was a child... He’s the only person really in the world who I discuss acting with if I feel that I’m stuck. I love watching him still." - Ewan McGregor, from the foreword Drawing on his lifetime career in front of the camera (and sometimes behind it), Denis Lawson offers a wonderfully accessible introduction to acting for film and TV. For the young actor hoping to break into the industry - whether in a drama series, soap or sitcom - this book is the ultimate insider’s guide. The author takes us on a guided tour of the film or TV set from day one. We meet the various members of the crew, from the director of photography to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ADs, and learn what each of them does - and how to get the most from them in your work as an actor. Then comes the actual business of shooting the scenes, beginning with readthroughs and rehearsals (if there are any), on to hitting your mark and getting your eye-line right, finishing with the actor’s involvement in post-production. Throughout, Lawson takes the actor’s point of view, offering encouragement and enlightenment, as well as being refreshingly candid about some of the more inane procedures. Above all, he offers a magnificent array of tips and inside knowledge for coping with what can be a daunting experience for a hopeful young actor.
