Starting out in Acting - Tips from Professional Actors

There is a lot of wonderful advice for new actors in the video below. Here are some highlights of my favorite comments:

David Furr (Broadway actor) says to do good work and be kind because then people will want to work with you again.

Zachary Levi (TV and Broadway star) suggests finding a great acting class or workshop that gets you in front of people in the industry with high profile showcases with real casting directors.

Jeff Daniels (Hollywood and Broadway Star) has three tips:
  1. Believe in yourself
  2. Find people who believe in you - build a team one person at a time
  3. Be in the right place at the right time AND be able to deliver!

5 Tips for Acting from Todd Bruno of Film Riot

Film Riot has a lot of great filmmaking tips which I watch on a regular basis and they had an acting video I wanted to share with you featuring one of their actors named Todd Bruno.

Todd says that the overall goal of an actor is to help the director get the shot they want. How do you do that? Check out the tips below:

Know your lines!

Manage time on set - always prepare during scene/set changes (socializing should not be the focus).

Fill every scene (awesome examples in video below). Think how can you make your one line count. You can add meaning behind doing nothing which will improve your screen time. A line can be performed many different ways by putting different thoughts behind what you're doing.

Help with continuity. This will make sure you keep your scene in the movie. Keep track of props, when you drink, eat, etc. Don’t mess with makeup, hair or props during the filming of a scene.

Translate what a director tells you. If the director wants you to be angry think of something that makes you angry to have it come across. Don't pretend to be angry or force it. Feel it. Find the honesty or truth in your performance by connecting to real emotions.

Free song lyrics Wishing no cost for composers and musicians

WISHING (song)

Lyrics by D. M. Larson

 

Have you made a wish?

I wish all the time.

I make the same wish,

Leaving worry behind.



Will my life transform
Will my wish come true
I weather the storm
Wishes help me through


CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

have my wish tonight..."



I go to wishing wells

With my lucky penny...

Casting magic spells

Along with so many



Treasure for the fish

Pennies in the well

Releasing my wish
My heart’s desire I tell


CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

have my wish tonight..."



Did you ever desire
Some wishes so bad
Swept up in a fire

Making you go mad


Tragedies of life
Weigh me down

I am still stuck  here...

In this life, I am bound    


CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,

have my wish tonight..."



But I won't stop wishing...

I can't stop this thirst

... give me some meaning...

I am over the worst


Please fulfill this need

for the peace I crave

Growing the seed

My soul you will save



CHORUS:

I welcome darkness

At the end of day

To the night’s first star

I will always say...

"Star light star bright,

first star I see this night...

I wish I may,

I wish I might,


have my wish tonight..."
