Overview

So, you want to be in motion pictures?

Or television? Or theater? Or any visual arts medium?

This is the dream of many. It all looks so glamorous up on stage or screen. The money seems to be ample, the work plentiful as new stations and networks pop up every year.

The truth is that the performing arts is not only hard work, its also hard to find. Theres a lot of competition from people with the same dream you have. Much of it can be knowing the right person, securing the important contact, even being related to someone in the business. But much of the success achieved is by being in the right place at the right time. Some of that you dont have any control over. Other aspects of it you do, and it is here where this booklet concentrates on pointing you in the right direction so that if you have the desire to work hard at the craft, you can work your way up to the level you dream about.

Acting is a tough profession. The finished product may look easy up on the screen, but thatch the deceptive brilliance of the actor or actress. It takes an immense amount of work to play a role and have it look so natural you think its easy to bring off. There are hours and hours of rehearsals, take after take of scene shots, a lot of standing around and waiting in short, anything but what most people think. Its also not a question of hopping aboard an airplane and flying out to Hollywood, walking into a studio and checking the auditions list to see what parts you can try out for that day.

Acting is an art and theres much to be learned and experience to be had first! Acting isnt the only way to make money in the performing arts.

If you manage to become a contestant on a game show, you can earn a few dollars. If you can write, you might be interested in screenwriting. Good scripts are hard to come by. Producers and actors are always on the lookout for wellwritten, interesting scripts with mass appeal. Performing arts is a people business.

It also has a great future. In the United States, 98 of households have a television while nearly 100 have a radio. In a typical week, nine out of ten citizens are exposed to radio and television. The television is on for an average of 7 hours per day; the radio 2 hours per day! With this type of demand, there will always be a need for performers and new material which should be a source of inspiration for you.

This booklet will be a primer for some of the opportunities that exist in the performing arts business.

Reading this information will give you a head start into making a dent in this career path. If you have the desire, you can make the effort. Wanting to do something badly enough means youre halfway to accomplishing your task. Thats the great thing about America dreams can come true if youre willing to
