Screenwriting, Casting and Directing – Interview With Daniel Christian

June 29th, 2012

Q: Would you talk about the process of screenwriting?

A: Screenwriting is often seen as the idiot’s way of writing which is — “I like movies, there are a lot of bad movies around, I can make a less bad movie, so therefore I am capable of being a screenwriter.” People who approach it this way find the exit very quickly. They come to the first class with this fantasy of spending their lives writing, but when given an assignment to return to class with five pages, they don’t even get the first page written. Then it’s over and done.

It’s the same with acting. Many people think it’s easy. I’ve got a voice and a body, and I’ve seen some very not good actors, so therefore I can be an actor. They may get cast in something and have some initial success, but they’ll quickly run up against a wall and find the exit.

Q: How should actors interpret their character from a script?

A: When a character is compelling and the story is well written, the character has a direction. Not everything actors do is predetermined by the script. When the structure of a story is clear, actors know where they need to go — but how they get there is a choice. This is where actors use themselves and their craft. Let’s say the scene is of a romantic breakup and your character gets rejected. There are many ways that scene can work out. The character can try to save face by getting loud and belligerent or by becoming quiet and apologetic.

Some directors, especially young or inexperienced ones, may exhibit a limited emotional range and can be quick to use anger. Anger is probably the easiest emotion to play and write about. Other emotions are much more challenging, and create richer and more interesting responses and characters with greater depth. Actors should be free to suggest their ideas as to how they think their character would respond, and a director should be open to listening. The writer may be thinking, I want to do something other than having a bunch of angry people running around the whole time, but I don’t know how to get there.

Sometimes writers focus so much on one particular exchange between several characters that another character, who has to be in the room to listen, hasn’t been fully considered. The character is there for a purpose, but the writer may not have given any thought as to how that character should respond. As much of acting is reacting, that’s where the writer and director need to sit back and think — “How would a real person respond? What’s a better dramatic choice for this character than just sitting there?”

I recommend that writers take acting classes. I tell them — “Someone’s going to act the role you’re writing, aren’t they? Someone is going to read your words and, hopefully, get excited or angered by them. What would a real person do in those circumstances?” Writers need to think about that and often they don’t. They often forget that real people are going to play their characters. Screenwriters, especially, need to think about actors.

Q: What do directors look for when casting?

A: Directors are reliant on actors to bring qualities to the production that they, themselves, hadn’t thought of, and that’s why the casting is very important. During auditions or rehearsals, directors look for things they can’t define or have only a vague idea about. An actor might come into an audition and do something that satisfies that idea, but then another actor comes in and does something completely different and the director goes — “I never thought of that, I like it.” The actor who brought in something new might be the one to get cast.

Q: How should actors work with directors?

A: Directors are looked to as knowing everything. They really don’t. Sometimes directors’ only response to an actor is — “That’s not it,” but can’t tell the actors what it is they do want. That shows a certain shortcoming on the part of the director. “I’ll know it when I see it, but I can’t tell you what it is because I don’t know what it is.” That’s fairly useless because it leaves the actor hopping around on one foot. “Is it this? Or that? Or how about this?”

Directors must be the best actors on set. They have to be able to enter into that role. New or young directors may not realize that they, themselves, have to exercise their own acting ability in order to get the best out of their actors. It’s not enough for them to sit back and say — “No, that’s not it. That’s not it either, but you’ve got to listen to me because I’m the director,” yet their directing isn’t providing guidance. Directors can get caught up in their titles, and they can be very proud of those titles, but they haven’t really learned all the manifestations of what their roles are. Q: What else should actors know about directors?

A: An inexperienced director will feel more comfortable around another inexperienced person. A nervous and insecure 21-year-old director can feel intimidated by an experienced and really good actor, and may think — “oh, wow, I don’t know if I can direct that actor because he’s so good.” Another actor whose acting experience and ability is at about the same level as the director’s experience and ability may get hired instead.

Many directors and producers don’t understand actors and don’t spend the time with them that they should or could. They can become dismissive of actors because they’re not sure what to do and respond only with — “no, that’s not it,” or “yes, that’s it” but can’t provide much other than that. Sometimes when people are scared, they become rigid or arrogant. I saw that with graduate and undergraduate students I taught. When reaching a cavern, they reverted to — “I’m the director,” which does nothing but create a wall of hostility. They don’t fully understand yet what it really means to be the director.

Q: What do you want from actors you direct?

A: I want actors who come in with opinions about the character they’re playing. I don’t want to work with actors who are passive about the characters or the story, thinking — “I’m just going memorize my lines.” One of the worst things an actor can do is come in as a blank slate. I want actors who say — “I see it this way. I think the character would respond like this.” That’s helpful to a director who may then say — “Hey, that’s pretty good. I hadn’t thought of it like that.”

Actors should have clear understandings of their scenes and how they want to play them. Actors shouldn’t be bossy or overbearing in their opinions, but they shouldn’t rely solely on the director either. Actors who aren’t clear about the scene or character, should ask questions they’ve learned in workshop classes. Most of the time, directors will respond positively. The director most likely has been thinking about the lighting, the editing, how to go from one cut to the next, and hasn’t given much thought to the performance, which actually is everything.

Q: What do you think about rehearsals for film?

A: Rehearsing is just a matter of carving out blocks of time before shooting begins and it saves time and money in the long run. Making a film is time sensitive and expensive, and directors and producers often concentrate on the production aspects — rentals, permits, space, crew, and catering. They concentrate on all these details, which are important, except the one that everyone’s watching, which is the performance. They overlook the rehearsals and rehearsing is the cheapest thing to do. It costs hardly any money. You need a space, a few hours, some pizza and drinks. I spend a lot of time in rehearsal.

Q: In what ways does do you see this market differ from other markets, the good and the bad?

A: People come to D.C. for law and public policy, not to learn the arts. It’s not part of the fabric of this area yet. D.C. primarily has been a backdrop for political movies that come in from elsewhere. People trying to develop their talent don’t have the opportunity here for the growth they want, so they leave for Los Angeles and New York.

Because there’s no established film and video culture here, people tend to cast whoever is cheapest. That helps with the budget, but it doesn’t do much for quality. When people do a film here and cast whoever is willing to work most cheaply, the caliber stays the same. There’s no incentive for serious film actors to stay when people working for little or no money take their jobs.

Washington, D.C. is culturally rich and cinematic. Exciting homegrown projects that have nothing to do with Capitol Hill or the White House could spread like wildfire and attract the best of everybody. Everyone wants to be a part of something good. Right now, many actors can do a corporate film that they just sort of stepped into and didn’t work very hard to get. They have no incentive to get better. A demanding project that challenges local talent could raise the level of competition here to where the people who wanted to get better would have a reason to stay.

Mary Ann Sust is a Washington, D.C., writer and interviewer who has written and hosted articles and monthly columns on beauty and skincare, veterinary/public health issues, and arts and entertainment. She has worked as an actor and in casting at Central Casting USA. She is also an independent skincare consultant.
