Who makes Blocking?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

all the experts suggest not using the actors for the stage blocking, so I ask me... who should make (simulate) the Actor movement and overall Blocking of the scene?


many thanks for a reply!

Please note that you need to use your full real name, it's one of the forum rules. You should contact Tim Tyler the site owner to make the change.

You use the real actors to block the scene because it affects their performance and where they stand or move will be worked out between the director and the actors. After the blocking rehearsal the positions are marked on the floor with tape and the actors step-off (usually to finish hair/make-up) and stand-ins are used for lighting and camera line-up.

What he said^^^

As far as being able to have a second team with a medium to low budget. I've been a part of and seen numerous low budget films that were able to acquire a second team/stand-ins. If the film looks promising enough and you have good people in charge of casting, it's definitely possible. There's a ton of actors looking to obtain credits and simply be on film sets/locations.
