Judith Weston has written two books: DIRECTING ACTORS, and THE FILM DIRECTOR'S INTUITION - for directors, actors, screenwriters - as well as others who may have wondered whether the techniques of actors and filmmakers might be useful in their everyday business and personal lives. Born in Maine, Judith grew up in New England, and by an early age was drafting brother, cousins, and neighborhood children into living room and back-yard theatrical productions. She dropped out of college in the '60s, and moved to New York City's East Village, working in a bank by day, and (off-hours) organizing "guerrilla theater" events such as the 1968 picketing of the Miss America Contest. When she moved to Berkeley, California in 1970, she started studying acting for real.

  1. :

    This is everything a director should know about working with actors.

  2. :

    I think that if Judith’s book were mandatory reading for all directors, the quality of the director-actor process would be transformed, and better drama would result.
