At STS Film Academy, we believe acting is "living truthfully under imaginary circumstances" whether onstage or on-camera.  However, even though the foundations of acting are the same for both, the techniques for believable performance are different.  The on-camera actor needs to adjust physically, vocally, and mentally to various camera shots; match his/her physical movements from one shot to the next; maintain extreme focus, concentration and imagination on a busy set; and perform believably with the highest possible stakes in a state of ease and readiness.  Get an inside glimpse into how it's done in this unique forum provided by the STS Film Academy.
