• Should England burn the Bayauex tapestry when it comes here?

    Best answer: We have seen a few of the tapestries hanging in the Louvre. Some of the more remarkable things on earth. It would take hours to study just one and see what is in them, and the way things change. One, in particular, in one corner had an image of a dog crapping. Evidently, we are much more dainty than back then. ... show more

    Did a google search to see if I could find it and sure, enough, the first image was it.

    Best answer: I'm going to assume you're asking about a professional acting career. The first thing you have to do is give up the fantasy that kids are "discovered" and given an acting career. That's not how the industry works. Doesn't mean that you can't be a professional actor - it means that you have to accept that this is a business, not a lottery or some type of TV competition show. People are in it to make money, not make your dreams come true. Companies are not searching the country for the right kid to reward with an acting career. They invest a lot of money in their productions and they trust that investment to trained and experienced professionals. See my answer to this question to understand the casting process better - https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20180113191620AAnmy5a

    Along those lines, attempting a professional acting career basically means that you and your family are starting and running your own business where you (and your skills) are products to be marketed and sold. Yes - your parents HAVE to be involved. A professional career involved legal issues (contracts, unions, taxes, entertainment work permits, Coogan trust accounts, etc); marketing (head shots, resumes, show reel, website, social media) and networking. It will be your parents responsibility (and eventually yours) to understand all these things so informed decisions can be made about your career (and to avoid the many scams and rip-offs). We are talking a huge investment of time, effort and money with no guarantee that you'll get any role and this is true even if you're not trying for Disney or other "big" things. It is NOT as simple as just getting an agent and going on auditions for any professional work.

    There is no one way to become an actor. There are no set of steps you can go through and "poof" you're an actor. It is an extremely competitive and unstable career. To give you an idea - there are currently 20,000 child actors with agents just in LA. California issues about 50,000 entertainment work permits every 6 months for kids wanting to work in the industry. Again - doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't attempt a professional career, it's just emphasizing the importance of your parents learning how the business works to help make good decisions for you and for you to think about exactly WHY you want to attempt a professional career at this point. Because if you're looking for fame, attention, money, if you want be someone else or escape a boring/hard life - you will be disappointment. And frankly, right now might not be a good time for you to attempt a professional career. It might not be good for you or your family - so this is something you need to talk with your parents about. And if you really are passionate about acting, you will have more opportunities and a bigger variety of roles if you focus on acting classes and non-professional work (school plays, community theater, student films and the like).

    A couple of websites to help you and your parents better understand what is all involved in attempting a professional acting career: https://www.backstage.com/backstage-guides/how-become-child-actor/ and http://bizparentz.org/

    So talk to your parents and let them do some research. In the meantime you can have fun learning and growing as an actor and performer! Afterall, this is what you love. Some things you can do:
    - Take acting classes, do a summer theater camp, look for quality training from respected instructors. Voice and dance lessons can be fun too.
    - Audition for what you can: school plays, community theater, church shows
    - Join drama club
    - Join other performance groups like choir, band, orchestra or dance troupe
    - Compete in forensic speech/drama contests
    - Read plays and scripts of all kinds and keep an eye out for characters you love and monologues you want to develop and perform them for friends and family
    - Have your parents contact local film schools and ask how they find actors for student films and check those sources. Check out the website of your local film commission to see if there are any opportunities. Have your parents look into joining backstage, actors access or casting networks to find out about low-to-no-pay projects (like student films) that you could submit to for experience.
    - Get together with friends to make your own projects for fun.
    - Embrace learning all different things - you never know when you can use something in acting.

    So again - you work on learning and growing as an actor and performer. Your parents can research the business end of things and then you guys can talk to see if now it the right time for you to attempt a professional career or if it might be better to wait until you're older.

    Good luck.

    Best answer: The basics of acting - analyzing a script, building a character - are the same regardless of the medium used. The techniques are different - one is not harder or easier, just different.

    Not every theater production is in a huge auditorium - there's theater in the round and black box theater and technology advances have made it easier to incorporate mics in a production. Cameras pick up more and so actors can use nuanced facial expressions and their eyes more on camera. But then you have more use of computer graphics in movies with green screen which require different body movements. And different genres of theater and movies require different things from actors.

    Which is why trained actors know how to control their voice and body to adapt to the various mediums and requirements for a production.

    ETA: Having acting both on stage and in front of a camera, I did think of one difference . Film acting is much more monotonous (and boring in my opinion). With stage acting you get the energy of the audience, you get immediate feedback and you tell a story from beginning to end. For film acting, a script is broken out into scenes and scenes are filmed out of order. Plus the same short scene is filmed 10, 20 sometimes 30 times. And it's not just problems with a flubbed line but it could be sound, lighting or other technical issues. And one scene is filmed from different angles - wide shot, mid shot, close up, reaction shot, etc. So you do a 2-minute scene 5-10 times then you wait an hour or two while the move the equipment around and film the exact same scene 5-10 more times and then another break and you do it again. And you have to do it the same every time for continuity. So if you say a line and lift a glass with your left hand, you have to lift the glass with the left hand on the same line in the same way every time (so that things can be edited together later). And the 20th time you do it you have to make it seem as fresh as the first time. It really is monotonous.

    Best answer: Talk to them - which means you Have to listen to them. Why do they have a problem with you playing a female? Then you try to addres their concerns. For example, you can assure them you won't get bullied. You could explain to them that if you played a bully in a play it wouldn't mean or make you a bully and the like. That you are who you are regardless of a role you play. Assure them you will keep up with your school work.

    Then point out that you can learn many life skills from being involved in theater and acting. You can learn public speaking, leadership, teamwork, resilience, and other things.

    Hopefully that will be enough to convince them.

    So I’m a 22 year old who graduated college 2 years ago as a Physical therapist assistant. After working for two years I don’t think this is something I can do for the rest of my life. I’ve decided to take a beginners acting class at a local community college to see if I like it/am any good, and if a career in acting is a realistic thing for me. I’ve always loved the idea of acting as a child but was shy and none of my friends would ever do the school musicals with me and I was too scared to do it alone. I’m not as shy as I was when I was younger but I still don’t talk a lot. My mom is supportive of this decision I’ve made to try out acting, but I’m scared if I actually choose to pursue this. What I’m asking is do you think acting is a realistic goal for someone with absolutely no experience? I’ll take non credit classes but I don’t plan on going back to college for a degree in acting/theater. Do you thinks it’s possible to try to become an actor while working a full time job with the degree I already have to pay for my student loans and everything? Please let me know some opinions. I’ve always wanted to act but my shyness kept me from it.

    Best answer: To be honest, I think it's quite probable that you'll fail, especially if you have some fantasy that you can just show up in LA and hope to be discovered or something. That's not how the industry works.

    It's show BUSINESS. People invest a lot of money in the projects and they trust that investment to trained and experienced professionals. There are not a bunch of open auditions you can go to. For most professional work you have to be invited to audition, usually through an agent. And you can't just hire an agent, it's more like they choose you.

    Legitimate agents are paid a percentage of what an actor makes (never pay an agent up front). They're not looking for actors with potential. They need actors with the talent, training, experience and business sense to book professional jobs right now.

    On top of that, there's the issue of the SAG-AFTRA. Most good jobs in LA are union jobs. And again, you can't just join the union you have to have a specific type of experience to be eligible to join.

    Why don't you get some acting training and experience and research to learn more about the business end of the industry before you move out to LA. It might make more sense to try acting in a smaller market first.

    Good luck.
