15.02.2017 - Peter Cowie, Heidi Levitt, Timothy Spall
Instead of Sally Potter, her casting director Heidi Levitt will join Timothy Spall to discuss how to help actors show emotional intimacy on set. As viewers of films we experience along with our protagonists, sharing with them their birth, their first love, fighting and death. In these profound moments, the filmic world transports the viewer to a sometimes beautiful, sometimes shocking place of intimacy. In particular screenwriters, directors and actors must exercise great courage and self-reflection to convey this sensitivity. Director Sally Potter (The Party, Competition) is a master of translating the most inner self of a character into her stories and onto the screen through the close, yet never exploitative relationship she establishes with her performers. In conversation with British actor and frequent collaborator Timothy Spall, Potter reveals how to make the film set a place for sense and sensitivity.
