The art of theatre and specifically acting has been around since the Greeks. The tradition of orally passing down stories is not new, but technology advancements through the ages have given us the ability to record these stories to be able to be played on forever. As the world of cinema took off, so did different styles of filmmaking, and by proxy, the films created. The different subgroups have been heavily shaped by the people and cultures they belong to. This divide has left us with a question. What really are the differences in directorial styles across different cultures, and specifically how do the very different worlds of American and French filmmaking compare? Also, as aspiring acting professionals, how do these differences in technique and overall stylistic differences affect the work of the actors involved? By exploring these techniques we hope to further hone our craft and apply a foreign perspective to our acting.
