Publisher's Summary

Master your facial expressions.

Complete your on-camera training.

Change your life.

Contrary to popular belief, the camera doesn’t magically place emotion or thought on your face - you do.

Here’s the thing about facial communication...your face speaks an emotional, cognitive, and emblematic language. Knowing how to speak this language fluently and authentically is a skill and often the difference between booking the on-camera job or not.

Is this you?

  • Are you often told your facial expressions are too big, too small, too messy?
  • Does your face frequently fail to represent what you’re really feeling inside?
  • Do your headshots fail to capture who you really are?
  • Is your face uncontrollable - Can’t stop it from moving? Can’t get it to move?
  • Are you unable to figure out how to get what you feel and think on your face the way you intend?

Mastering how your face speaks to the camera starts here.

Acting: Face to Face: The Actor's Guide to Understanding How Your Face Communicates Emotion for TV and Filmis the first audiobook in a two-audiobook series about speaking what I call, “the language of the face”.

Our journey begins with:

  • Why only a small percentage of on-camera actors get the majority of the work
  • What those actors do differently than the rest
  • Why acting is an art of deception and why deception is the key to truthful acting
  • Why your facial messages may not be expressed the way we intend

Then we’ll take a deep dive into:

  • The science of emotions
  • The 3 ways emotions are facially expressed
  • How to identify your personal emotion creating and revealing strengths and weaknesses
  • The 4 steps to achieving “emotional alignment” - The balance between what you feel and what your face reveals

What’s new in the expanded 2nd edition?

  • Updated “myths and misconceptions” section
  • What we've learned from mask-wearing
  • Deeper dive into eye communication - what the eyes can and can’t say

Also added are three brand new sections including a mini version of the proprietary Emotion Screen Test (EST).

The EST is a guided in-depth self-evaluation of your own facial expressions. Its main purpose is to help you clearly evaluate your emotion creating and revealing strengths and weaknesses.

Are ready to finally complete your on-camera training?

I’m pretty certain you’ll love this comprehensive audiobook on facial communication because it’s easy to follow and the information you’ll take away may not only game-changing, it may very well be life-changing.

Let the journey begin...

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great tool to have for an actor.

This technique will help you survive the demands of film acting. If your face speaks the right information the camera catches it. After 10th take sometimes that's all you've got left, is your face. I've read this book and studied with John.
It's another level of acting.

Must-have audiobook

This is a must-have audiobook for a film/screen actor. John gives practical tips and tools on expressing emotions with your facial expressions. The audiobook and John's previous books have been a game-changer for me on camera. It has elevated my acting career to new levels. I now have the tools to express nonverbal truthful facial expressions on cue.

Also, the pdf is a great supplement to the audiobook!!!

The masks prove it's not "all in the eyes"

So, communication is all "in the eyes", huh? We saw that idea go down in dramatic flame with the mask wearing we started last April. Did you notice some people were exaggerating their eye expression - bulging a bit and other awkward indicators and gestures in order to communicate? Did you catch yourself doing it too? We need more than our eyes to effectively communicate our feelings and our message.
Real life vs acting life. Deception vs lying (there's a big difference as he explains). How does your face reveal emotions?

I met John Sudol in Vegas back in 2011 at his workshop and saw the obvious benefit to his keys of emotional reveal in facial communication both in real life and reel life. To understand and utilize his tools adds tremendous value in life. You learn how to be more emotionally aligned to accurately communicate your emotions and your message.

An actor has a substantial, colorful and extensive tool box and John's valuable keys fit nicely in the mix of things. Once you have the tools, you especially see how you'd be at a disadvantage and be missing out by not including them in your box.

What are you waiting for? You will make your life and your world a better place! Listen to this course!
