On Wednesday, Edward James Olmos took part in Film Independent's Directors Close-Up, in a panel entitled "The Actors: Getting Great Performances."

Mr. Olmos was joined by Filly Brown's co-directors, son Michael D. Olmos and Youssef Delara (who also wrote the screenplay), casting director Tracy "Twinkie" Bird, and film star Gina Rodriguez, whose performance was praised at the Sundance Film Festival.

The panelists discussed "what's behind a great performance" and discussed the ways actors, casting directors and directors "collaborate to achieve unforgettable film moments." The interactive session was moderated by actor Harry Lennix (Man of Steel, Ray).

Directors Close-Up is a series that "gives you an intimate look at the craft of directing straight from the visionaries behind the camera."
