Film Acting and Voice Projection

If you're a stage actor trying to break into film acting, here's an acting tip for you: Don't worry about projecting your voice.

In film acting, less is more when it comes to voice projection. On the stage, your voice needs to reach the back of the theater. But on a movie set, microphones will pick up even the quietest whisper.

The director will let you know if he wants you to speak softly or shout your lines as befits the story or your character, but you don't have to worry about not being audible. Keep your voice volume at a normal level unless told to do otherwise. This will prevent you from overacting, and you'll be able to deliver a more natural performance.
