Backstage – The Difference Between Working Onstage + On Camera, BY PHILIP HERNÁNDEZ

Because I work regularly in both mediums, I’m often asked how acting onstage and acting on camera are different. This week, I was on set shooting episodes of “The Path,” “Law and Order: SVU,” and “Bull” so between costume fittings, makeup, hair, camera setups and craft services, I pondered the question and wrote down my thoughts.

The good news is, whether you’re onstage or on camera, your internal work is the same. You still have to know who you are physically and emotionally, what you need, and what you’re willing to do to get it. You also have to know how you feel about everything you talk about and everyone you talk to. There’s more than that, of course, but it’s a good place to start.

The big difference between acting onstage and on camera has to do with distance. On camera, most of the time your scene partner isn’t more than a few feet away from you so you just talk with them like no one’s watching. Read Entire Artice Here

Variety – Viceland Will Relaunch Primetime With Nightly Live Two-Hour Variety Show, BY MICHAEL SCHNEIDER

F— it, Viceland is doing it live. The cable network will revamp its primetime lineup next month to launch a nightly two-hour live show that will serve as a showcase of sorts for all things Vice.

“Vice Live” will air Mondays through Thursdays from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET, starting Feb. 25, and reps Viceland’s most ambitious programming initiative to date.

“Our audience lives in the world of very live, and instant, gratification,” Viceland president Guy Slattery exclusively told Variety. “Being live is also a bit more dangerous and makes us a bit more vulnerable. People are going to see things happening in real time. They’ll be watching the show while we’re making the show.”

“Vice Live” will be hosted by a panel of four up-and-comers: comedian/actress Marie Faustin, Houston-based underground hip-hop artist Fat Tony, comedian/director Sandy Honig, and writer/comedian Zack Fox. But other Vice contributors will also be seen on the show, such as’s Dee Nasty, Eve Peyser, Lee Adams, and Taji Ameen. Read Entire Artice Here
