Is there such a thing as acting too big for the camera or too small for the stage?
While certain styles of acting can be said to appeal to one medium or the other, the major thing to consider here is believability. Does the performance read true? I find that in the ever-changing and expanding entertainment industry, there is space for "big" acting and "small" acting, regardless of the medium that the performance utilizes. Truth is the determining factor and truth is the result of a prepared actor.
How does preparing one’s voice for the work of presenting differ from preparing one’s body?
Because the voice and body are infinitely connected, you can hardly prep one without prepping the other. This means that when we warm up our voice, the body is already being warmed up inadvertently, and vice versa. Once we're able to see for ourselves how the voice and body are one, communicating becomes a lot easier and more efficient.
