Starting a career in the arts takes a lot of hard work, years of training, a deep knowledge of the workings of the relevant industry and making contacts with the right people over the course of a great period of time. Right?
Well, not really. This is of course, one way to go. And for many, the training and the years of gaining a deeper understanding of the film or television industry can help them get ahead. However, for others, all it takes is a few auditions and they find themselves the lead in a film with no previous experience under their belt.So how can that be? Well, some people are just lucky enough to have the raw talent and mindset to wow the casting directors and producers and can do so without being furnished with the tips and techniques that others might need.
So, does this mean everyone could potentially be the next big thing? Well, technically, yes, although the better news is that you don’t have to be the next big thing to have a good, solid career in the arts. Whether you want to go to auditions for the lead in major movies or simply want to be an extra in a soap, there can be good money earned ing something you have always loved.The bonus is that forging a career in the arts doesn’t have to be make or break. You can happily hold down another job while you try your hand at auditioning and even just take on extras work to help you earn money whilst you learn about the industry.
