Directing Humans

As a technically and visually minded creator, this book has been unbelievably insightful into the heart, soul, and humanity of filmmaking. While this is just a first step in learning how to direct actors, after this book I feel confident enough to start making mistakes.

Fantastic tool for directors and also actors

I am an actor/director and found that the information within this book is essential and incredibly insightful. It collects multiple techniques and methods and apply them in a way that is crash and easy to follow.

I also have the printed book version, and the audio version is updated and adapted in a great way and read by Judith herself so it is like being in a private coaching session with her.

Highly recommend

Wished I had the physical book!!

Great read! There are a lot of great tips and experiences. It was great that there were examples of actors/actresses of when ideas were applicable.

This book changed my life.

I read the book ten years ago and decided to hear the audio version as a refresher and boy am I glad I did it.
If you want to direct or have been directing and want to change things up this is a must listen.
Thank you Judith 🙏😊

Narration too hard to listen to

Not all authors make good narrators, and unfortunately, this is the case here. The halting and choppy narration is so distracting I keep losing focus and though I am more than halfway through the book, I couldn't really tell you much about the content. It's probably better read than listened to, but I have found other books that I prefer and am not likely to buy the paperback nor finish the audio.
