How to Direct Non-Professional Actors
We all want to work on films and commercial productions where we have the budget and the creative that allows for casting calls, talent agents and professional actors to deliver inspired performances. But in reality many creative concepts these days call for "real talent," another way of saying using real people vs. professional actors. After years of experience working with and without professional actors as talent, I have found that despite having non-pros as actors, you can still evoke great performances. In fact, when a good directing job is achieved, you may find the real-person performance is the most authentic, from-the-heart acting on camera. And if anything, directing non-professionals is great practice in a more forgiving environment for your directing skills.

Stock Photography: Then & Now
above image: Ernest Borgnine & Sid Avery by Ron AveryIn the 1970s, my dad, photographer Sid Avery started making fine art prints to sell at galleries. He had to dig the originals out of storage where they were collecting dust. It was the first time in decades that he had seen some of these images. It was during this process that he discovered that he only had 20% of the images he ever shot. It turns out that the magazines or clients that he worked with never returned the originals or they were stolen. He started to talk to his friends in the business and found out that they were having similar issues. No one really knew what to do with the material. Some of these photographers thought of what they did as a job. A great job but once it was over, they didn’t all see the value in the negatives. Some guys just threw away their originals not thinking that anyone would be interested or that they were worth anything.
