How can directors support actors?: Creating a Short Film: 04 Working with Actors

Film directors can offer support to the actors in the cast on their movies by listening to them, and providing an open atmosphere for them to ask questions. It's also important to validate actors, especially during scenes with emotionally challenging performances. Directors should also understand the favored process of the actors in their cast, so they know how to work with those actors.
