HOW TO SET MARKS FOR ACTORS

This video is to show you the most common ways on How to Set Marks
for Actors. From using a "T" Shape mark , Toe Mark, Box Mark, Double
Toe Box mark... you can choose what works better for you and your
actors.
Using Marks for actors may seem like a waste a time, but it will actually save you time making sure the actors hit their mark every take.

Learning how to hit marks accurately and seamlessly is a vital component of good technique and something all actors must master.

The only time I don't use marks to mark the actors position is on wide
shots, instead I ask them to find references within the set props.

BONUS MOTIVATIONAL VIDEO

This inspiring motivational video was created with the single purpose to motivate people.

MOTIVATION is literally the desire to do things. It's the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It's the crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be.

Whats your motivation? 

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
