Directing Actors – The Power of Staging

The director-centric Travis Technique is a transformational approach to cinematic storytelling. The Travis Technique offers you innovative ways of working with actors to elicit instantaneous and authentic performances that translate brilliantly onto the screen. The Travis Technique will embolden you in the art of fearless storytelling and creating powerful, imaginative, character-driven films.

Staging (also called blocking) may be the most powerful, non-invasive, non-improvisational directing tool available. Unfortunately, it is also one of the least understood and frequently misused tools. The Travis Technique of Staging offers powerful ways to inject scenes with the obstacles and tensions that will generate the range of emotions you want your characters to experience.

Learn Mark Travis’ two phases of Staging:
  • Stage the characters within their environment to trigger the performances you want.
  • Adjust the staging for the cameras for the most compelling presentation of the scene.
