Actors Acting

I just came accross this interesting video series by the New York Times, have to share.

They asked 14 actors to show us what acting is in a few gentures with a few props, with no real story. (Although you find yourself making up a story in your head from their movements.)

Please watch the videos, they are beautiful: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/12/12/magazine/14actors.html#14

While the acting is amazing I think it’s also important to pay attention to the costume, camera angles, lighting and sound.  Would they be so dramatic in colour?  In a straight on static camera frame?  Without sound?

What do you think?
