How to Become a Professional Film Actor
1.Get a good film acting school Even though you may be a born actor, you need a good acting school. You’ll want to have a big or small resume before you get an agent. Ask your acting coach if he can tell you about upcoming plays and films.
2.Now is the time to get a headshot/beautiful. Make sure you get a picture taken by a professional headshot photographer. Remember, this is your calling card! Headshots are expensive but you get what you pay for. Once you find a photographer and have your photos taken, you’ll need to get them printed. This is also expensive but absolutely necessary.
3.Video your acting (at home or in real performances) and start to build up enough material to edit together a Show Reel (also called Demo Reel).your ‘calling card’ as an actor. Put your Show Reel online (on Youtube or your own acting website) so that you can send Casting Directors, Managers, Producers or Agents a simple email link to assess your talent.
4.If you go to school, audition for parts in school plays and skits for practice so you can get better and become noticed in your city or your school.
