Film and Media Studies has long lacked a critical framework for analysing screen acting independent of an actor’s performance. Although Media Studies traditions like Star Studies place actors at the centre of their analyses, performance analysis’ investment in the cultural semiotics often overlooks or elides the acting work behind that performance. To break the conflation of screen performance with screen acting and thereby to ascribe some creativity agency to the actor, Dan Leberg approaches screen acting as a practice. His research combines theoretical and ethnographic methodologies to approach screen acting from the actor outwards towards the audience.
