Cine Acting Workshop
How to Face Camera
(Learning Acting Technically for T.V & Cinema.)

Understanding camera, lights & blocking of the movements (character & the camera) as per the latest techniques helps the actor a lot while working on screen. Also, basics of shot taking & direction techniques help to perform at best of one's talent.

Though, the basics of acting always remains the same but without proper knowledge of technical aspects, even a capable actor might fall flat if the medium differs from Stage to T.V. or Films.

A good stage actor might fail to give expected results in front of a camera. He might appear too loud if proportion of distance between him & camera is not kept in mind. Moreover, even audience (i.e.camera) & lights are not static like stage audience. Similarly, T.V./Cine artist might give a similar kind of disappointinmg results on stage. So, understanding the three mediums i.e. Stage, T.V. & Films & moulding the performance style for the same becomes really essential for any professional actor.

DTCA's Cine acting workshop introduces & explains the three mediums, concentrating more on learning acting technically for T.V. & Cinama.
