Becoming a Film Actor

Many young performers dream of becoming movie stars. (Not many seem to dream of a career on the stage, unless it's in Broadway musicals.) It makes logical sense, then that they should study acting, and film schools seem the perfect place to get that necessary education.

A film acting school is a great place to get started, especially since the education you will receive here is geared specifically toward performing in front of a camera, and not on a large stage. (They are very different disciplines!) You wll learn techniques like how to "hit your mark," vocal adjustments, and makeup for the screen.

You can find film acting schools by searching the Internet, or by reading the trades (like Backstage ) to find out which schools are in your area and when the next round of auditions will take place.
