The technicalities, form of enactment is different, also this depends upon the character and designing of a play, like proscenium (the stage of an ancient Greek or Roman theater) theatre is different, has its own style or pattern, commercial and street play is different. Similarly, on TV and films things are different. Acting is same but the pattern of acting form is different of all three mediums”.
