Overview

The entertainment industry is a lot different now than it was fifty years ago. With the advent of the Internet, digital technology, and broadband communication, the twenty-first century actor will have to dip into a new bag of tricks, promoting himself and communicating in ways that previous generations could not possibly imagine. Acting Strategies for the Cyber Age provides the tools he needs to make that transition a profitable one.

A career guide for the twenty-first century actor, Acting Strategies for the Cyber Age connects the dots between the traditional values of the actor's art and the career necessities of the future. Urging actors to reconnect with their shamanistic roots as primary storyteller, Hooks offers essential advice on how to make long-range plans and select the proper acting training. It is not enough, for example, that a new actor study only acting technique. Now, he must understand the ins and outs of camera technique, film editing, motion capture, and the relationship between live action and animation. And because each actor's needs are different, Hooks offers personalized advice based upon age, gender, and circumstance, laying out what kind of training and promotional tools will be necessary.
