Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Want A Job In Acting?
Why Don’t You Create Your Own?

While it is important to find a talent agent as a way to get a job in acting, today’s technology offers us many other possibilities so that it really is possible for one to create his/her own success! This page is dedicated to those videos with comments, acting tips or useful information for young, aspiring actors. What I want to show you with this page is that starting an acting career is much more than just getting headshots and résumés together and contacting agents. At the same time, by showing you these videos, I want to stimulate you to think about what is special about you that you could begin to present to the world, like some of the people you will see here below. Think about it. Being well-known and associated with something positive by thousands of people, just might be of some help in getting your career to take off. The more visible you are, the more likely it will be for someone to notice you.

You can do so many other things to bring your uniqueness to the public eye. Below you will find a the beginnings of some of my favorite videos by actors. They are not my favorites necessarily due to the content or the quality, but rather for what they represent. I applaud these actors and artists for trying to make things happen for themselves.

People Who Want A Job In Acting Making Things Happen For Themselves!

We Need Girlfriends: This online sitcom is a great example of what actors can do to try to create their own job in acting instead of sitting around waiting for something to happen! One of the guys in this program graduated from my acting school!

Viral Video Ideas:You could also create something truly unique and different that makes people want to pass it along for others to see. It's also a way to create a fan base. Of course you will want to incorporate your acting skills into it somehow, maybe in the way of a unique storyline or a unique and interesting character. With regard to creativity and the internet, there are no limits!

I Kissed a Vampire: Another web series made to look very professional. Personally it is not something that interest me, but that really isn't the point. The point is that this little web series had a following of more than one hundred thousand people who tuned into it and who couldn't wait for the next episode! I put this video on this page to stimulate some thought on your part.

2 Actresses Have Some Tips And Advice

Amber Gristak: Amber is a young actress, who is taking her career very seriously.

While we have not personally viewed all of Amber’s work, she is a working actress and aside from that, currently has 62 videos (as of January 3, 2008) on youtube.com.

This video lets us get a peek into one of her classes so that we can see the master at work. We also get a chance to hear what some famous actors have to say who had studied with her.

Physical Preparation For Acting Work On A Film: I found this video that shows how the actors were trained physically for the film “300”. The reason I wanted to have you watch this video is so you can see just how hard the work can be at times to prepare for a film. Do you think you could hang with these guys? Check it out.

The criteria for submission is that they supply useful information for visitors to this site to learn from and would fit in nicely with the content videos on this page. It is a great way for you to get recognition as well!
