Stanislavski in Practice - the Film, Part Two: Work on a Role extends and completes the work begun in Part One: Work on the Actor. Nick O'Brien takes a practical approach to the second part of Stanislavski's system, the actor's work on a role, with exercises based on those used by Stanislavski at the Moscow Art Theatre. A close companion to O'Brien's bestselling book for students, Stanislavski In Practice, this DVD follows eight students exploring key areas of the system and - crucially - focusses on the student's process of observing, experiencing and learning, as well as on the teacher's instruction. As the film progresses we see the students build their understanding and develop new skills and resources. It is an invaluable alternative or supplement to reading the book and practicing the exercises in class, in a workshop or at home. As a step-by-step and user-friendly guide to working with Stanislavski's system, this is an unparalleled package of resources for anyone looking to develop as an actor.
