From Actor to ‘Action!’

Date: Saturday, 6/10

The transition from “in front of” to “behind” the camera is simultaneously a natural and complicated move. An actor’s primary focus is on a performance and character, while a director collaborates with a multitude of departments to craft the entire episode. Join some of your favorite TV faces as they discuss what drove them to take on this new role, the struggles (and perks) of creative collaborations, and how their perspectives and experiences as performers informed their new job.

Panelists: Kyra Sedgwick (Story of a Girl), Patrick J. Adams (Suits), Adam Arkin (Justified), Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica), Ken Olin (thirtysomething)
Moderator: Mandi Bierly (Yahoo! TV)
