Are film actors favored over theatre actors?

Asked by: SegBeg
  • Own experience & Majority

    Out of mij own experience film actors are more favored already in the media. Who does not know Arnold Schwarzenegger?
    Everybody else voted yes. There is an Oscar event for film actors. Can theater actors win an Oscar? And do you know of any event such important for theater actors?

  • Yes they are.

    Film are actors are definatley favored over theatre actors when I think both jobs are highly difficult. But I think theatre acting is a bit more difficult than film acting because a a live performance cannot afford to have any mistakes in it whereas if you make a a mistake in a film, you can just re-film the scene until you get it right whereas in a live performance you don't get that chance. And also in theatre it is a lot more difficult to pull of those special effects than in film because it is live so there is no editing footage to make it look real- the actors have to do so. I think theatre actors deserve more publicity and respect than they already do

  • Much better experience.

    Distance plays a big part in the experience. In a movie, you can get a more real feeling of the scene. Because you can view the actors from close range, you can see real expressions that you could not from a seat at a play. To compensate for this, stage actors must exaggerate their performance. To use larger movement to represent emotion. For instance, on screen, you could see sadness just from the look on an actors face but on stage, they must portray sadness by loudly crying out in a less natural way. Even sound is tricky. For instance, having the audience hear a whisper.
    Another factor is setting. In a movie, you can progress from one area to another seamlessly due to editing. On stage, it is very difficult and could be confusing for the audience. On screen, especially with today's technology, you can create just about any believable environment, but on stage, your limited to the size of the stage and those who create the background.
    Because their medium is much more believable to the audience, film actors tend to be favored over theater (stage) actors.

  • No I disagree

    Plays and theatre are much better than the movie rubbish ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
