Olivia's Style - My Blog
Check out what I've been up to in my busy, crazy, silly, funny, peppy, jazzy life! Find out what I like to do and read about my life as an actress and a giver.
I know what you're thinking. Stamera is not a real word. But in my world Stamera means stage and camera acting. You need training for both, but they are different ways of acting.
Camera acting has to be believable and your actions and movements have to be small to stay in frame. On camera, the set is an actual place - a restaurant, a house or a school - and with all the equipment and crew it can be a little cramped.
When you are acting on stage you should use the entire stage. So big actions are important, but it still has to be believable. I have been working on all these things for a play I will be in this Christmas. On stage you have to face the audience, so where you stand and how you talk to the other actors sometimes feels a little weird. When I do both types of acting I use my face, my body, my eyes and my voice to make the scene believable.
Here are a few shots of me doing both stage and camera acting. Now that's what I call STAMERA!
