Photo Double Acting Tips

Using an acting double can be incredibly useful in certain scenes. These tips will help you make the most of your actor's skill and get the best results possible when using a photo double.

  1. Be mindful of how much time you're taking up with set-ups - It's essential to ensure that your photo double is comfortable and able to take on the scene without sacrificing too much time for other shots or takes. Consider their needs first, as they are essential to keeping production running smoothly.
  2. Choose a double that looks like your actor - For the transition from one shot to another to look believable, it's essential that the photo double looks as similar as possible to the actor. Try to match their skin tone, hair color, and body type as closely as possible when selecting.
  3. Make sure the double is familiar with the material. It's essential that the photo double is well-versed in the script so they can deliver precise lines and portray a realistic version of your actor's performance. Provide an overview of the scene and answer any questions they may have before shooting.
  4. Have someone else present during takes - An extra set of eyes on stage will ensure that all shots are accurately captured and help keep everyone focused on getting the best take possible from your double.
  5. Get creative with angles - Don't be afraid to experiment with different angles when shooting scenes that involve your photo double. This will help create a more dynamic shot and lead to a more exciting scene overall.
