Improving as an Actor in a Competitive Industry

Progressing in the modeling and acting industry is going to be challenging for you at first. You may have to start out with smaller roles or smaller modeling shoots, but all of this will allow you to build up a portfolio and resume that will open more doors for you. It will also give you the chance to develop a reputation in the industry and a bigger following.

One of the first steps in becoming an actor is to study up on famous actors.  Know your competition, and know what steps successful actors took to get where they are today.  Sure, some actors were born into the business as child actors and made their way to the top, but that is not the case for many.

Treat Auditions Like Rehearsals

Auditions are a great place to work on your skill-set.  The more auditions you attend, the more experience you will gain.  You will mostly likely not earn the lead role in a movie or commercial on your first try, but trying is the key.  Don’t get down on yourself for, some of the biggest stars were denied several times before they finally made it big.  Did you know Steven Spielberg was rejected by the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television three separate times?  He has now won three Oscars, seven Golden Globes and eleven Emmys.  This is just one example of the hundreds of actors that were denied.  Denial is key to building your character and gaining experience so that you can improve.

No matter the outcome, each audition is good practice for you in gaining experience in a tough industry. You will learn more about yourself as an actor or model and you will get the opportunity to meet many people in the industry this way.
