Should I take this acting program?

QUESTION: with regard to this specific acting program in LA.

I am 18,live in the UK and have applied to study Drama at
University in September. I have signed up to a company called XXX XXXXXXX (I’m hiding the name on purpose.) that helps actors from all over the world to come to LA, train at Stella Adler and audition in front of 30 of the best agents, plus much more. They have replied to me saying they are interested. Would you recommend to go ahead with a company like this? If so, I can always defer my entry at university.

ANSWER:

My advice is, that if that is your only plan to getting your career started, that you should go ahead with the university now. Before you choose a school, you should look around first.

Before you do that, you should understand some basic things about the acting business and know what it will mean for you. Things like this.

and this

I’ll also give you the first month’s module to my Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course:

http://www.actingcareerquickstart.com/Module_1_Free-Gift.html
If you haven’t taken the necessary steps to ensure that you are preparing to have a successful start to your acting career, then it’s a waste of time and money.
Either go to school. OR Make a serious commitment to do those three things you saw on the video link above to get your career started.

And if you really want to commit, then do this. It’s the fastest way I know to get started.

How you start an acting career: 3 Things you need to do to start an acting career

Here’s how you start an acting career. These are the first three things you need to do!

 

I’m not going to offer you acting lessons, because I am not an acting teacher.

I can’t possibly know if you are doing this for the right reasons. Only you can know that.

But I can help you with the third thing you need to do to start your acting career.

So…are you doing these three things or not? Leave a comment here below.

 

The fastest way to start an acting career

This is the absolute fastest way I know of to start an acting career as quickly as possible!

If you can’t find a mentor on your own, know that The Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course is a mentorship program that takes you through every step of not only learning the acting business, but actually DOING it. When you finish the course and if you have followed everything we do in it, you will have created the base for acting career success. That means you will have created all your marketing materials, know how to get yourself seen in the industry, made contacts and more importantly built relationships with key industry professionals, know how to get lots of auditions, how to increase your chances of booking off the auditions you do get and lots more.

Most students have already started getting acting work well before finishing the course. Here are just a couple of examples.

My First Three Months (in my acting career)

Download your free gift here: My First Three Months Story

I’ve met a lot of people over the last few years here online who come to me because they are struggling to start their acting career.

  • They don’t have an agent.
  • Can’t get one.
  • No luck finding auditions.
  • They find one audition once every blue moon!
  • Many get one acting job every few months. Some get a job once a year.

The reason I built my websites for new actors is because I see it over and over again. The problem isn’t that they don’t want to get more acting auditions and acting work. The problem is that they don’t know how to do it!

How is is possible to get more than 37 auditions, book 10 acting jobs and make almost $4,000 in just 10 weeks? I did that [fname] and I want to share with you how I did it. (I actually worked on 8 of those jobs during the 10 weeks and the other 2 after the three month period was over.(

Originally My First Three Months of my acting career story was meant to be one of the bonuses in the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course and it still is. It is the very first bonus students receive in the first month. At the beginning of this New Year, I have decided to give it to you now, before you enroll in the course. It’s my gift to you.

So here it is. It’s a 40-page ebook, that you can download.

Click here to download the ebook.

  • It’s detailed.
  • It’s easy to read.
  • It’s a quick read.
  • It’s information I wish someone would have told me before I got started acting.
  • It’s my story.
  • It’s my gift to you.
  • If you have been struggling to start your acting career, once you start reading it, you won’t be able to put it down until you finish it!

In the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course, I teach you how to do everything I did in those three months and more. I teach you everything I know and that I did to get those 37 auditions, book those10 acting jobs that made me almost $4,000 in that short time frame. I teach you how you too can get more acting auditions, get more acting work and actually start making some money a lot quicker than you might think!

I’ll close by saying that if you are really serious about starting an acting career, in other words, if starting an acting career is REALLY important to you and you don’t already have a coach or a mentor, the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course and I are just a couple of clicks away.

Can you help me with my acting talent?

Can you help me with my acting talent? That was a question I received just a few days ago. Here was my answer to that question.

If you want help with your acting career I can help you.
If you want to learn the craft of acting or have help to
build your acting talent, I'm not an acting teacher, but
my home-study course will point you in the right direction.

You have to decide three things.
1. How serious are you about wanting to learn what you need
to know to start an acting career? That means, are you
willing and able to invest some money to get started?
2. How quickly do you want to get started? Do you want to
already be acting within the next six months or can it be
longer than that?
3. How hard are you willing to work to start your acting
career?

The reason I ask you these questions is this.
There are a lot of people out there who SAY they want
to start an acting career, but who really aren't willing
to do what it takes to get started.

In that case, I send people to my free information website
called www.actingcareerstartup.com and there they can find
all and any kind of information they need to get started.
What I have found though is that 97% of those people never
get very far, because they don't know what to do with that
information. It's too much and they don't know what to do
first. There is no one to bounce ideas off of and to coach
them along in the process.

The people who are serious have another option with me. That
is the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course, which
provides step-by-step instruction on video and also with
personal coaching from me each month.
It requires an investment of $37 per month for six months,
which is a total of $222 over the six months. The people
who apply what they learn in the course earn that money back
on their first acting job even BEFORE THE COURSE IS FINISHED.
http://www.actingcareerquickstart.com/ACQSSales3.html#v3

You asked the question about talent. Acting talent is
important in an acting career, but unfortunately it is
just a small part of the whole puzzle that you need in
order to be successful. To help you better understand
this point, have a look at this video and
see why acting talent alone isn't enough.

Good luck to you!

  • a free type, headshot, cover letter and resume evaluation done by me personally: participants send me their materials and I evaluate them and give a recommendation on how they can market themselves to ensure the best success rate possible from their efforts, (a $29 value!)
  • free downloadable mp3 audio files of ALL the videos in the course to listen to on your iPhone, iPod, smart phone or other audio device, (a $69 value!)

What starting an acting career can be like if you work hard

Starting an acting career

Brent Bauer

Acting Career Quick Start Graduate Brent Bauer

If you want to know what it’s like when you really get your acting career going at the beginning, here is a snapshot of what it can be like for you too if you are currently not getting any auditions or acting work and are not sure how to make things happen for yourself. This is one of the continuous updates I get from Brent Bauer, a graduate of the Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course.

Hey Tony,     Stating an acting career is a lot of work, but it can be very rewarding. How have you been? Today marked a big day for me in my acting career. I did my first mailing to casting directors and a few agents. It was quite a great feeling walking out of the post office knowing that they were in the mail.  A lot of work was involved with researching each one and including something about them in each cover letter but it was so worth it.  I included my headshot/resume, cover letter, and a self-addressed stamped postcard.  I also just got another role in a movie and just got contacted about being in another project.  Tomorrow, I have an audition as well.  The great thing is that it’s only the beginning.  I really look forward to the journey.  I think one reason why actors fail is that they only look at the destination of making it. They don’t enjoy the ride of getting there.  I am all for the journey; each step I treasure it for what it is.  I recently looked back at everything I’ve accomplished just since taking this course.  It is so awesome to see how far I’ve come along since then.  There’s plenty more to come!

[After a few weeks]

Since the last time, I’ve been doing quite a few projects.  I started a commercial class with a casting director who has a very good reputation in my area and gets quite a bit of work.  Through her, she got me a gig for a local car commercial.  I got a really nice close-up of me in a car!  The commercial has been playing constantly which has been very exciting.  I also did work on a commercial for Dick’s Sporting Goods for their holiday commercial.  It was an all night shoot (11pm-7am) but was so worth it.  I also have recently been cast in another film that will be filming the beginning of next year.  Also, I just got representation from an agent and also invited to attend an Open Call with another agency.  A few weeks ago, I also sent my first postcard to all casting directors and agents I sent my info to.  Within the next week, I’ll be sending another postcard to them about my recent updates as well as wishing them a Happy Holiday.

I personally am proud to know that what have created is working for those who are willing to work hard while starting an acting career and follow the program step-by-step as it was meant to be followed.

Good job Brent!

A Very Positive Acting Career Quick Start Student!

Message from an Acting Career Quick Start student

I would like to share with you a message that I just received from one of my students.
He is doing great things in the program and getting incredible results. Brent Bauer
is his name. He is getting regular auditions and getting regular acting work.
One of the reasons that he get’s these kinds of results is, because he is extremely
positive and a great example to follow.

“Hey Tony,

start an acting career
Acting Career Quick Start Home-Study Course Graduate is getting regular auditions and regular acting jobs!

I’ve been doing pretty good.  Keeping busy. I have an Open Call tomorrow for another agent that’s more local and an audition next week for a film.  I’m also going to a wrap party tomorrow for one of the films I recently finished and finishing up another film by next weekend.  With the Open Call I’m going to, I recently did previous work with this agent when she needed an extra for a commercial a few weeks ago.  Today, she contacted me about possibly auditioning for a SAG commercial.  Right now, I’m on hold for a Monday audition if they want to see anymore (they had callbacks today but might want to see more talent).  Regardless, that’s a good thing, right?”

 

This is what he wrote me at the end of his last mail to me.

“Tonight I had an audition for a musical. I’ll let you in on a secret: I don’t do musicals. So…why would I go to the audition? Because it was uncomfortable. When I’m at film auditions, I’m confident. I know what I can bring to the table, and I represent that character. It’s comfortable. Doing a musical piece with a pianist? Not so much. That’s what made it great. Did I screw up my song? You bet…. I was completely off with the music and all over the place. Am I going to beat myself up over it? No. Did I fail? Perhaps. That’s great. In everything, it’s good to sometimes do things that make you uncomfortable. It’s good to fail. Bill Gates says that if you want to be successful, double your failure rate. I had a great experience that no one can take away from me. Failure makes you stronger. In this business of acting, failure is a part of life. That’s what makes you enjoy your acting career successes even more. On a side note, I did nail my monologue!”

A positive mental attitude can do wonders for your acting career!
Brent is proof of that.
