    Looking for suggestions on any short videos on directing that I can use in my Acting/Directing class.  Would like to cover items such as scene selection, blocking, etc.
    Thanks!

    I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but the American Theatre Wing has a terrific collection of Working in the Theatre videos:

    You are so thoughtful to help with this search.  What I am really looking for are some short videos that walk students thru the process of:
    1. scene selection/analysis
    2. blocking
    3. rehearsing actors
    My class this year is comprised mostly of novice performers.
