Subject: Film and Theater
Regarding modern Film and Theatre mediums, what is the primary difference in how they are presented to an audience?
As opposed to traditional stationary filming, which was heavily influenced by theatre in style and consisted of very few overall camera shots, modern film has transitioned towards a standard that essentially chooses to present a story to its audience/viewers through more of an intimate perspective. Most directors choose to treat the camera as an additional character taking in what is occurring in-scene throughout the film. Theatre, however, has been traditionally general In setting with regard to perspective since it’s origination. The stage, placement and blocking of both actors and props are organized for an entire capacity audience to see simultaneously. Theatrical productions are presented from a singularly surrounded focal point of view, a concept commonly referred to as ‘the outside, looking in’.

English is certainly not the most complicated language when it comes to overall structure, but the use and mis/placement of a single term can drastically alter a message and it’s conveyance.
