Should I do theater if I want to act in film?

Act in film.

Chances are if you want to be an actor you might have dabbled in high school drama and theater.  If this is the case, you already have a background in theater and you can use this experience for your resume.

Theater acting is different from film acting in a variety of ways.

So, if theater acting is different from film acting, why should I even do theater?  Isn’t that a waste of my time?  

Well my friends, agents want to see three things on your resume.  
  • They want to see that you have training (outside of high school theater 101).  
  • They want to see film experience (see the chapter on student films).  
  • They also expect to see stage acting.  

The purpose of you reading this book is to help you start acting now and help you accumulate credits to have something of substance to show your potential agent.

Legit talent agents only make money when you make money. They don’t charge you up-front for working with you. If you don’t book and earn money, they won’t make money.  

Agents are hesitant to work with actors who do not have training credits or experience credits on their resume. Agents want to see that you have hustle, that they can market you and that you will know how to do the get the gig and do the work and get paid.  

Let’s get you ready to be a stage actor.  Find casting notices and auditions for community or church plays even if you want to focus on film acting.  

In my e-book we have an entire chapter with the resources you need to get started in theater acting at the back of my e-book Getting an Agent in Texas.
