The Best Techniques Of An Amazing Actor

Any actor wanting to improve, and any film editor wanting inspiration should watch this video.

‘Westworld: what makes Anthony Hopkins great’ dissects a few minutes of a scene from the HBO show Westworld. It’s such a gem for any actor seeking to figure out how to perfect their craft.

Six emotions in seven seconds. This is what makes Anthony Hopkins great. I love this video, not as an actor, but as an editor.

My job requires sifting through footage and numerous performances before actually choosing which one to use.

When an actor, like Anthony Hopkins, knows not only how to act but REACT in his character, it works wonders for the editor. This gives them many options to use for the final cut.

An actor’s performance can make or break a story. Hopkins’ character is a perfect example of how the show is projected forward into the success that it is because of his abilities as an actor.
