Fact or Fiction
This section is in two main parts; for performers in a fictional story (actors) and for people appearing in vision in a non-fiction story (presenters). There are many graduations of ‘non-fiction’ – I suppose a the skills of a television chef are more related to acting than news reporting. And where a dramatised documentary fits in is even more complicated.
If in doubt, study both sections. In fact, I recommend that everybody working in film and television, especially people with directing ambitions, should learn as much as possible about all the jobs involved.
Presenting for Fun and Profit. It’s a curious sort of life. There’s more than a bit of acting in there. Here are a few bits and pieces about the parts that are different from thespianising.
