An Actors Life For Me

Many hopefuls dream of becoming an actor/actress and making themselves known by appearing on the big screen and staring in movies.

BUT

The creative industry is a tough nut to crack and without the knowledge and insight of what to do and how to set off, you are tripping before the first hurdle.

Knowledge is the key to climbing that Everest that is the creative ladder.

It can be done with persistence, consistence and determination without these you are going to get very disappointed.

You have to put one foot in-front of the other and gather knowledge and new skills as you go along.

Train, train and train - you have to refine your skills so that you become a master at your craft and make acting become second nature.

Once you have found suitable training, really push yourself mentally and physically to see what is possible.

When you gain knowledge and are constantly pushing new boundaries you will be better prepared to approach industry professionals, such as agents who will work with you to get acting work.

BUT........remember you must always promote yourself and make sure people know where to find you and see samples of your work.

Industry professionals want to see how you perform and look physically, so a great place to start is by getting a headshot (pretty much industry standard).  

This will allow you to put a face to your name and let the industry professionals see who you are and if you suit any possible castings.

Oh and the headshots should be 10*8, this is an industry requirement and make sure you get digital copies for online usage too.

This is a great place to start - my headshots will be posted in this article so you can see examples.

Also a good idea is to gather any images from shows you have performed in so you can post on social media - here are a few of mine for example:

Next you must create a show reel - this is to show your representation on screen and how you perform/speak.

There are a few ways to gain material - you can gather footage as you go along, which can take a while or you can have a show reel created by a company.
