What they didn't teach you in acting school... | The Casting Corner

What they didn't teach you in acting school... | The Casting Corner | drama acting | Scoop.it

A straightforward discussion from Casting Director, Mark Sikes, on how difficult it really is to succeed in the "business" part of show business. He also offers smart, practical advice on various things you should know and actions you should be taking to increase your chances of breaking through and sustaining a professional acting career. No sugarcoating here; he just tells it as he sees it.

 

By the way, while Mark is an on-camera director, most of hs observations apply to voice acting and voiceover auditions, too. 

 

Mark Sikes: "Hollywood isn't fair. There are people in Hollywood who will have advantages over you that are not based on their talent. Welcome to the life of an adult. Things aren't always fair. Focus on your strengths to make you more competitive and remember that plenty of actors made it in this business that didn't have any of those advantages so you can, too."

Some really interesting thoughts

Renae Phillips's curator insight, May 7, 2013 8:08 PM

They say Drama is just acting and has nothing to do with the real world, but i disagree strongly.  When have you been in a situation in the real world where you had to think fast on your feet and improvise?  Where have you used what you learnt in drama to help you get what you want in life? Drama is all about action reaction and plays a strong role in your everyday life.
