If you want to get into the acting industry, you first
need to learn about it. The acting industry is not made up of just actors
– the acting industry is made up the entire entertainment industry.
Just like any other industry, the acting industry has millions of people
employed to produce, market, and distribute a product to consumers.
There are not simply actors within the acting industry.
For actors to exist and prosper, there are many other people in the
acting industry – there are truck drivers, lawyers, accountants,
landscapers, lawyers, chefs, and computer programmers. Pretty much any
career you can think of can fit into the acting industry. There are
also the people that you more generally think of being in the acting
industry, like producers, directors, musicians, cinematographers, and
To get into the acting industry, you need to find out as much as you
can about it, and then go into it headfirst. You need exposure. You
need promotion. You need as many people as possible to see and recognize
your work. The acting industry is one of the most competitive industries
in the world. It is hard to find your spot in the acting industry –
it is even harder to keep that spot.
To get into the acting industry does not have to mean that you will
immediately have your face up on the big screen. In fact, you may never
get it up there, nor may you want to. You can get started in (and even
stay doing) theater, commercials, soap operas, voice-overs, or acting
as a host. All of these jobs are part of the acting industry, and they
could be your break into it.
Just remember. Do not give up. You can not be successful in the acting
industry after only being in it for a day.
