Acting Tips for Beginners
No one, not directors, casting agents, or your fellow performers really like performing with someone who doesn’t take direction. This action can often say more about you than you wish.
Learn how to learn from others
Learning by watching is a very powerful tool. When you watch others perform don’t just see it as entertainment, but an educational experience. This is even better if you are watching those artists you are working with.
Don’t just be the guy or girl who can play the young love interest. Get your hands dirty and try something out of what you or others perceive as your ‘type’. You might find you like being the straight man, the villain or the comic relief.
Take some classes
Talent and drive can come very naturally, but to harness these things it’s good to actually learn what to do, and how you can do it. Classes, both group classes and private can take you leaps and bounds in your abilities in all genres.
