Op-Ed: My Experience in Transitioning from Stage to Film Acting
On stage, you’re required to “fill the room” with your presence. Bigger, grander, bolder gestures are encouraged. If you don’t project your voice, the audience members in the back rows may not be able to hear you, especially if you aren’t provided a microphone. In a black box theater, the distance may only be 30 feet. In theaters like the Gershwin Theatre in New York City, the distance is exponentially larger.
