Which do you prefer or find more realistic?
I was thinking about this for a few weeks since I went to an acting camp and I was reminded of it last week when I went to see Les Miserables on stage. I felt I should ask here on what form of drama do you prefer.
Personally, I feel that seeing a stage performance seems to feel bigger than going to a movie. It seems like a special occasion. The audience most of the time seems to be a lot better as well. I also can't help but feel more appreciative towards the actors in a play rather than a movie. Maybe that's just because I like to perform in plays with my school.
Another thing is that plays still feel more realistic most of the time. You're watching the story with your own eyes, rather than viewing it being played back on a screen. CGI effetcs in movies don't seem to help either.
