• Is Acting Really Difficult?

    Best answer: It takes intelligence, conviction and passion. These amount to talent. The only way to tell if you have talent is to get involved in some amateur productions. It won't be wasted time, believe me. Another route is to act in student films. Most often they don't pay, but you need to get experience somehow.... show more

    For me the difficult part about acting is committing to a run of say, 50 performances in a row. I don't know how I would respond to such a challenge.

  • How do you deal with jealousy as an actor?

    Best answer: You should stop acting altogether. You don't have the right personality. Actors get rejected all the time - it's just part of the job. Typically, even a professional actor will get rejected from 99 out of 100 auditions. If you can't be happy for those who get good roles and graciously accept any... show more

    If you can't be happy for those who get good roles and graciously accept any roles you DO get, stop trying.
    It's unhealthy for you to feel like this.

    while many have higher education in acting, theater, etc, not many do as well. the majority feel it's a learn on the job type training, as you're always improving your craft as a filmmaker. so that is something else to consider.

  • Are Theatre Shows Recorded?

    Best answer: Almost every professional show is recorded, however, the majority are recorded for archive purposes. That is usually one static camera at the back of the auditorium and the result is quite grainy and poor. They are not for showing to the public - they are merely a record.

    Best answer: Almost every professional show is recorded, however, the majority are recorded for archive purposes. That is usually one static camera at the back of the auditorium and the result is quite grainy and poor. They are not for showing to the public - they are merely a record. There are some companies such as The National and RSC and English National Opera who get a show professionally filmed and recorded. These are the ones which are either streamed live in cinemas and sometimes that same show is recorded at the same time for another showing which is "as live". I have only seen one so far and it was brilliant. There was a mix of distant and close up shots so the audience didn't feel that they were missing out on seeing facial expressions.

Obviously the set may make a difference to the view, but you can get a good idea. Scroll down on the link for the seat reviews.

  • Poll: why does my one night stand want to know if I’m going to keep the baby??

    Best answer: He wants to know if you're going to juice him for child support for 18+ years for a child that neither of you intended to create. It's a pretty valid concern.

    Hello, I m 17 turning 18 in a few months. I am currently in college doing 3 levels, history, sociology and English. I finished my gcses a year ago. However I really want to get into acting and it s something I have always thought about but have never done anything about it... I was wondering where would I start as I m not really sure how it works. I have no experience in drama/ never went to a theatre or drama school, I haven t studied or learnt drama in gcses or a levels, nothing. I have whatsoever no experience. So I just wondering how other actors/actresses go about this, do I need to study it in uni, go college, go to a drama school? And how do I get in? Thank you for reading this!

  • Should i just give up?

    Best answer: Without seeing and hearing you act, we can't tell you if you have any talent or not. Some people could have the best training on earth for 50 years and still be terrible actors. Or it might be that the people who are getting bigger roles are just better than you. Or it could be that if you see ensemble roles... show more
    Best answer: Without seeing and hearing you act, we can't tell you if you have any talent or not.
    Some people could have the best training on earth for 50 years and still be terrible actors.
    Or it might be that the people who are getting bigger roles are just better than you.

    Or it could be that if you see ensemble roles as being 'pity' roles and aren't putting 100% effort into them and are not really performing them, the directors might well be assuming that you can't act at all, having seen you standing there - looking bored, not in character and with a bad attitude.

    Failing to turn up to rehearsals is telling your directors that you're unreliable and you aren't interested enough to be given a speaking role..

    If you'd like to continue acting after you leave school, which can't be far off, audition for a small role in your nearest good community theatre's next production. See what happens.
    There, you'd get cast according to your perceived ability by totally unbiased people.

    I suspect it's your attitude that's the problem, so have a think, accept that ensemble roles are not 'pathetic' or 'pity' roles, put huge effort into your next role, whatever it is and never, ever miss a rehearsal!

    It was my childhood dream to become an actress. However, I kind of drifted apart from it because writing got in the way. I’m about to graduate Communication Arts next year and I want to try acting. I already tried acting on stage once for our theater class. One thing that makes me think twice is the effort that I need to do in order to survive in the fiel including its cost. I have to go to dermatologists and salons to take care of how I look; I need to go to acting workshops and auditions with hundreds or thousands of people to get myself out there. However, there is no assurance that I will be the actress I aspire to be despite all efforts. Does anybody here have stories to tell? Advice to me? Answers? I’d appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

  • How do you fake a good sinister laugh when voice acting?

    Best answer: You don't fake it, unless you want it to sound phony or you're looking for something stereotypical and unorigional. If that's the case then just listen to what you think is a "good" sinister laugh (I'm sure you can find one on the Internet). Then work to imitate it. See most voice... show more

    See most voice actors don't imitate - they create. They would first create a sinister character and then laugh as the character would laugh. This is why voice actors get acting training - because there is more then one kind of "good" sinister laugh (with good being a very subjective term).

  • Does Acting Matter?

    Best answer: "house of cards" (American version) is a soap opera. The British version (which includes :House of Cards, To Play the King and The Final Cut) was far superior.

    West Wing was episodic -- a series of more or less stand-alone stories (except for the last season)

  • Why do poor actors and actress resent being given line reads? Don't they know if they were better at their job they wouldn't need them?

    Best answer: They don't like to be considered so unskilled they're given line reads. They all want to be considered talented enough and well enough known that their previous work is all they need to get a part.

  • What's the diff between acting school and voice acting school, and taking acting courses online vs. taking voice acting courses online?

    Best answer: If you took a course online you would be missing out on a whole heap of valuable lessons which come along with working with a group of people. How can you learn properly when you have no one to bounce of, watch and learn from? How do you learn team work when there is no team? I suspect that voice acting schools... show more
    Best answer: If you took a course online you would be missing out on a whole heap of valuable lessons which come along with working with a group of people. How can you learn properly when you have no one to bounce of, watch and learn from? How do you learn team work when there is no team?

    I suspect that voice acting schools are an addition for actors, not the whole thing. To gain from it, you would need to already have acting experience and be using the course to fine tune the voice, not as a means to get work by solely taking the one course.
    At acting school, you learn about the business of acting, not just how to portray a character. You would be wasting money by missing out on the experience of acting school. Don't try to skip stages. There are millions of wannabees out there. Be the one who has the experience and knowledge. There are no short cuts.
