    on-camera

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from 29 Gifts by Cami Walker:

    "He's really hustling to get his voice-acting career rolling in L. A. It'll get even more intense soon when he starts auditioning for on-camera television commercials to all his voiceover work."

    What is a "on-camera" television commercial?

    It's one where this man gets his face on TV - as opposed to "voice-acting" or "voice-over work" where it is only his voice that is being used.

    Does this mean he is actually auditioning for an acting job instead of a voiceover job?

    He will not be physically being filmed by a camera--I believe that what they mean is, to use another phrase, "on-air"--his voice will be being used for real performances shown to a real audience, rather than, say, performing as voice acts at theaters and such.

    Yes, it's possible it's supposed to mean that.
    " ... he starts auditioning for voice-over work for live television commercials." It's a strange way of saying it.
