Panorama Academy believes that acting is more than one talent
Regardless of job titles and roles, all work in the creative film industry is all about one and the same thing: telling a good and moving story. However, how to do it and what part you have in it is on the way to becoming far more fluid than it has been so far  – the creative forces must unite.
