Amanda has been a guest on the fourth episode of the DGC Podcast. Produced by the Directors Guild of Canada National Directors Division, the DGC Podcast lets filmmakers discuss their craft. With Amanda having experience both in front and behind the camera, the episode focuses on tools to communicate with actors as a director. Amanda talks about her first directing experience in Stargate, what is important to her as a director, what to do when losing actors, mistakes directors make, working with child actors and what to do when the actors struggle with emotional/sensitive scenes. She particularly emphasizes the importance of creating a safe space to get a good performance. Listen to the half-hour podcast at Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
