This is more of a question for directors, but it can be directed at other actors as well. How common is it for directors to email actors back and tell them that though they didn't get the gig, but they are keeping their info to reach out for future projects? This has happened 3 times in the last 6 months. I do need to add that these directors have made good on their promises and have reached out for me to audition and participate in their projects. I'm just curious how often that happens and what causes the directors to notify us actors snd say "not this time, but I have the perfect part for you to try later."?
Do any of you actors out there ever feel like a cash cow? I recently attended the get scene challenge from get scene studio in Atlanta. Before the class is over we were introduced to actors spark. Essentially a pathway to grow your career idk seemed very salesman like and can’t think of why shelling out a monthly fee to get infront of casting directors that will sign the actors they were going to anyway based on need of roster. Idk maybe that sounds bitter but I just see more and more “take this course” “take this workshop”
I’m not a voice actor whatsoever but something popped in my head and I had to ask. I believe the voice actor that voices Marge from The Simpsons developed bumps on her throat which affect her ability to do the voice like it’s always sounded, its very close but still a little off. My question is with this new ai tech, we’ve seen incredible deep fakes and voice deep fakes, could they or would they use ai in the future to deep fake voices in scenarios where an actor dies or isn’t available? Probably would have to license the voice from the actor (which is a whole other convo lol). Ai just needs data the more the better, and if you feed it the thousands of hours of voice recordings from the actor that played Marge, over time I think it would get near perfect at doing the voice. DISCLAIMER I don’t want this to happen and don’t want voice actors out of work, just a question and something to think about for the future of voice acting. Thanks.
So, I currently live in a town of 2,400 people and have almost zero people around me that are as obsessed about this craft as I am. I have been in this field for about 3 years, and I have only grown closer to it. I just live in the middle of absolutely nowhere and have to move to the city in order to make these connections, hear about the upcoming projects, meet the people. However, moving across the country alone is a bit of an obstacle, especially with no idea what to expect. This has been at the forefront of my mind for years so financially I have been saving in my college years, and have a good amount of sitting capital for moving and a couple months to acclimate and begin meeting people, and training with acting coaches. I was hoping to gain any knowledge possible on this subject. 1. What locations are best/safest to live in? 2. What events are good for meeting other actors? 3. Where is a good place to work at and is flexible with auditions? 4. What agencies or representation should I seek? 5. How do I find a place to live at? 6. Am I stupid? (haha) 7. What sites are most often used to find auditions or just some small modeling or background work? Any information or insight is appreciated on these topics, thank you so much!
I’m in a conundrum . I live in So cal by default- so I’m automatically up against all the actors here. I have had little to no luck as a beginner. My lease is going to be up soon and I was planning on moving to LA. I already have lived there for school but moved back during Covid. So it wouldn’t be the first time I lived there and I know I love the city. I can afford it but will I even get work? I’m concerned about my lack of experience and the amount of competition. I don’t really know what to do. Do I spend more money to move to a City with an acting scene but less competition so I can get started? Or just keep living in so cal?
Im a decent voice actor in english, i can change my tone and do different accents well enough for ny purpose (dnd games). But i cant seem to do it at all in ny natuve language, hebrew. Anyone had this problem? Anyne can help?
How special was it to see Michelle Yeoh shatter that glass ceiling and make history as the first Asian performer to win the Academy Award for Best Actress? Both Michelle and Ke Huy Quan's speeches were so moving and impactful for different reasons. I couldn't help the tears. If you haven't had the chance yet, you should check out Michelle's interview from the Oscar's Press Room last night. I've included the link below. It's so inspirational!"Don't give up. Never give up. Don't let anyone put you in a box."- Michelle Yeohhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bs6eqrK6NHM
I've been told by basically everyone I talk to online & in person that my voice is really nice and they're always think I'm a Twitch Streamer or voice actor or something. I've talked to my wife for awhile about starting some sort of Voice Acting career but I'm not sure that's actually the way I should go. I don't have a great range, and can't imitate voices very well. The best impression I can do is the really deep "Raid: Shadow Legends" voice which gets a chuckle out of most people. Is "Voice Acting" the right call here? What else should I do? It feels like a waste to not do anything when every video game/Discord lobby I join I have people complimenting me on my voice but at the same time I don't feel like I'm talented/have enough range to do voice acting :(
I’m considering becoming an actor when older and don’t know how to start as I don’t want to be a singing dancing actor but I want to be serious and star in something like the last of us- or possibly be a funny actor?
I hire actors from time to time and other creative professionals, and count many among my friends. What I don't understand is why so few actors who are working hard to 'make it' and get work do not have personal web pages and URLs. They make it very difficult to be found and for others to recommend them. Many eventually get an agent and then, it seems, expect their agent to do everything for them. Agents triage time, and tend to do more for their clients who are more in demand. It's the business. In my view, as someone who occasionally hires creative professionals including actors, I'd like to be able visit a personal web page. I also know what's involved in a personal web page. I have one. But, perhaps I'm missing something here.
Long time lurker here looking for some advice. I’ve prowled this subreddit looking for people with similar situations to me, but I feel I need to put my entire situation out there to get some advice on how to move forward. I really want to be an actor. Like I want it so bad it hurts. Early last year I was the lead in a production put on by a big theatre company and then immediately got cast to be the lead in a huge indie feature film, of which I won an award for best actor at a major film festival it was entered into. I thought that would snowball my start of my career as an actor, but i haven’t been cast in anything since. Now I don’t know how to move forward. I was attending community college and recently transferred to a local state school I could commute to because it was the only option that would allow me to come out of school with no debt, but I haven’t had any opportunity for acting over the last year and it’s been killing me. I applied to schools in LA but did not get in, so ultimately I went local to save money and I figured my connections might help me land more roles, but they haven’t. If I’m being honest, I don’t even want a degree. I would rather attend an acting conservatory in Los Angeles or a film program that’s production based but I know that’s not realistic due to costs and time. I’m on track to graduate Spring 2024 when I’ll be 23, turning 24 later in the year. I know it makes sense for me to finish my degree (Creative Media) but I know I’m getting older so the thought of dropping it all and either going into a conservatory or switching schools entirely so I can act while I’m there occupies my mind daily. Other than occasional auditions, there is no opportunity around me to take classes or even join an improv group. I even tried starting one, but it did not work out. I feel stuck at this school and I honestly don’t even think it will help me get a job in my field when I graduate and move. I got accepted to the performing arts major at CSU Long Beach for fall admission, so I’ve been considering attending there instead. My hesitation comes from having much more debt, pushing my graduation a whole year when I’m already graduating late, and arguably obtaining a worse major for regular job searching and survivability. I’m just looking for opinions on what others might do in my situation. I’m so desperate to continue my acting career because being stagnant while I’m in school is killing me but I don’t want to screw myself over in the process. Any advice or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks
I live in Jacksonville, FL and need advice for building a career as an actor. Other than acting classes, I am lost.
Had a tv pilot audition, I had a really hard time with one of the scenes for some reason. The scene the character is running and at each new location screams something, sometimes the same few lines in a row. obviously I couldn’t run so I just had a little trouble keeping up the energy. I worked on it for hours but I can not get anything I like, should I still submit it? There were 2 other scenes I did that I was super happy with, just the last one was tough for me I’m also a horror actor, this type of scene is literally what I do. I’m so frustrated with the fact I can’t get it right
(NYC based) I’m new to acting and I’ve read a lot of famous actors were a part of “such-and-such theater group” early in their careers. How do I seek out one that would be good for me and what is the process like to join? Is this something that’s good for newer actors to do or is being a part of such a thing only for trained actors? Thank you!
Hello, I’m a new actor that just got started a year ago. I’m in my university’s theater company but over the summer break I want to take a high quality acting class near me. I’m currently deciding between the Meisner Technique Studio in SF or Studio A.C.T, the adult acting classes that American Conservatory Theatre offers. Has anyone taken either of these classes and how was it? Thank you so much!
As title says, but I live in MD, and I feel like it’s impossible. If I were in NY, TX, or CA I feel like it would be possible. But does it matter where I like? I feel like MD doesn’t have a lot of places
Hello. I am an acting teacher with a specialty in Shakespeare and I would like to develop an online group of students. I have a couple of in-person students now, but I live in a small town where demand is low. Do you have any recommendations for finding students who are interested in online coaching/acting lessons? I feel like we're always talking about marketing ourselves as actors, but how do you market yourself as a teacher? ​ Any advice is appreciated. ​ *\[I have been through the FAQ and have done some searching, and haven't found anything on this topic already -- please direct me to the right post if this is a redundant/unwelcome question!\]*
I’m an working actor in Australia. I’ve recently been having a few issues with my agent, namely that he’s been saying since the start/middle of 2022 that the industry has been “quiet” for everyone. Is this really true? Are there just not many roles going at the moment? What are your experiences, whether you’re an actor in Australia or otherwise I’d love to hear. This is causing a lot of tension on my end. I’ve been submitted for approx 20 projects since last year on Showcast. For Casting networks I can’t download my submission report but I suspect it’s similar. Should I move on?
When I’m acting, I don’t feel like the character. I’m acting mad, sad, etc. but I don’t feel like I’m acting it. I just feel like I’m myself, and every word isn’t coming from the character but me. Do you have any tips to not feel like this?
Hey guys I'm looking to book an actress and she's signed under CAA. What's the best way to email CAA about this? Do you have any templates. Please help!
I have understood that in acting training teachers want you to experience the emotions that you are to act out on stage. Although Meisner is not method acting it uses emotional preparation so it still asks you to experience the emotions. I am a person who hate the idea of "you should feel the emotions that you are acting out on a stage". I haven't really come across a teacher who said that you do not have to feel the emotions. Is modern acting all about experiencing the emotions of your character? Should I never become an actor?
I'm heading into day 3 of 3 on a fairly intense short film shoot, involving some heavy emotional moments of fear, greed, anger, euphoria, and a lot of physicality; chase and fight scenes. I'm so proud of the work we're doing on this, and so happy to be a part of the project, but it got me wondering how actors make it through even longer shoots, whether it's something stunt-heavy like a John Wick/Mission Impossible/etc. movie, or something with a brutal schedule like a network show, or both. So, my fellow actors, what are your go-to tips for self-care and sustainability, mainly physical but emotional too, on intense/grueling shoots?
I'm a directo and i'm working with an actor who speaks only Spanish and English, and his character is a German who knows very little Spanish. The original idea is to do a dubbing after filming and put the voice of a native speaker over the pure German lines. But I find that during rehearsals it would be good to at least have him say it so that the lips match better with what he says.
I'm an award-winning, British actor, screenwriter and film director, and I'll be touring the Balkans next months. Would any actors, filmmakers, critics or enthusiasts be interested in meeting up? It's always fun to meet people who love films and theatre, and it would be a great chance to make connections for potential future work. I'll be visiting Ljubljana, Sarajevo, Podgorica, Pristina and Belgrade between 6th and 11th April. Potentially also Tirana, Skopje and Zagreb if I have time.
Im in toronto for a few weeks filming a project and I know this is mainly for acting but as an actor I've found that I do a lot of picture taking and posing. I'd really like to stop feeling so awkward when it comes to taking pictures for photoshoots or posters and was wondering if anyone new any good posing/modelling classes on how to pose better while I'm here? Thanks!! Even if they're online. Thank u!
What’s the hardest thing about being an actor for YOU, as a unique individual. This can include lifestyle, craft, process, auditions, business, etc. Open to multiple different answers.
Hey! I'm a 16yo male and have an incredible and amazing passion for acting, for years I have been determined to do whatever it takes to be on the big screen as a full time job. I need all the advice and references I can get. How do I pursue this? I will do whatever it takes. Thanks a ton!
I’ve always had great difficulty maintaining relationships on a consistent basis. I’ve never been all that great with friendships, relationships, and the likes of such. I’ve always been sort of a loner. I’ve always been socially awkward, and to combat this, I’ve always preferred to just keep to myself rather than step on any one’s toes or rub anyone the wrong way because I lack proficient social skills. I’ve heard it’s all about connections in this business, so how can I (a socially-awkward, reclusive loner) make, maintain and keep connections and polish up the ones I’ve got now so that I can have good connections? Any habits, schedules, or tips you guys can lend me would be great.
**Hello everyone!** I figure this is a good place to ask for recommendations for *online-working* voice over coaches. More specifically in those teaching Commercial and Narration. I'm an actor in my metropolitan hometown and I figure there is a market here to gain experience and begin a resume that isn't quite as competitive as the larger markets. I'm looking for someone that is blunt, knowledgeable, reputable, and will really hammer me in to shape. **Thank you for your time.**
I’m a new actress, whose managed to book around 10 things (thankfully) since the new year - I’ve recently gotten a request to be a background extra for a Tyler Perry commercial and landed an audition for an Amazon prime video series coming out. When do you know if you’re ready for an agent and how do I really get my foot in the door to speak to one?
Hi Guys, i made this little shortfilm and i wanted to share it with you in hopes to maybe get some feedback. If you are a working actor i would love to hear your thiughts on how i can improve :D i just want to learn and any help is greatley appriciated. Thanks :D Best regards https://youtu.be/b8JcZIn3VH0
As I begin my journey into Voice Acting, I have done exercises from the theater days to prepare. What other things do you all do to prepare your voice for any type of acting and what helps you solidly put yourself into your characters shoes?
I was an actor from my teens to my late twenties but left it all behind about ten years ago. I miss it dearly and want to get back to it but it’s been so long that I’m not sure where to start. I live in London so that’s a good start; but I can’t seem to find any weekly acting classes for a reasonable price. Does anyone know of any acting classes in London they would recommend?
Guys . I have a question. In all of the movies I’ve watched of al pacino. It seems he’s not a versatile actor. Care to weigh in
Every class I find is filled with beginners. I've taken so many classes and I"m super unimpressed with most of them. I finally got into Ted Slubersky's on camera class, and it was great, getting to see actors at a higher level than me perform, it was motivating. I was heartbroken to realize it ended after 4 weeks. What is even the point of doing a 4 week class and that's it? attract clients for private coaching? i don't get it. I want to invest in the right teachers longterm so that they know me and my work so I can truly get better. All the on-going classes i find are either with teachers that I wouldn't want to pay money to study with, and the good teachers only do these 4-week classes that aren't on-going. It's super frustrating. What else can I check out here? I'm going to do a zoom class with a reputable LA teacher at some point, but I MUCH prefer in-person classes in NYC so I can meet other people and make friends and shit, thats pretty much impossible to do in a zoom class. What are the best teachers in NYC? Who did you study with that changed things for you and helped you improve? Other than Bob Krakower, who is impossible to get into a new student workshop, i've literally been trying for years, who else is an advanced on-camera class? And don't say heidi marshall she charges $550 for a 4 week 3 hour zoom class, absolutely outrageous and offensive pricing for what?
Especially to student filmmakers which I see doing this the most often. Requesting essentially a self tape before the self tape is a waste of time and honestly a little disrespectful. How does an actor even know they have the looks for the part? The whole point of a casting director is to select those who physically look right for the role, narrow down the pool of applicants, and then proceed from there.
Hiya reddit, I'm coming back onto the VO scene after a ten year hiatus in the stage world and wanted to sanity check something I heard from a reputable coach. Ten years ago, my process was Pro Tools + De-esser + compression + (occasional) gates + EQ, and very occasionally something more involved. I took a semester of audio engineering at the local community college and got competent if not expert at Pro Tools. My coach referred to this as 'sprinkling fairy dust' on an audition. Then she said that this isn't a good idea anymore: that the producers want everybody's audio as raw and clean as possible so that they can do that stuff and not have to deal with (# of actors in a piece \* different ideas about what constitutes fairy dust) combinations of 'stuff' people have done to their recordings. This makes sense to me but it leaves me wondering: what DO you use for DAW for, besides a record button and basic editing (adding/removing silence, normalizing levels). Part of me rebels at having a piece recorded that needs, say, a de-esser, and not using one! Also, is the equation different for recording a final versus an audition? I feel like 'leave it alone for post' makes more sense once you have the gig and they know the actors they're dealing with; but it's not like they're going to go edit an audition you sent, so what's the justification for a minimalist approach to editing in an audition piece, besides 'I have 100 of these to record and don't want to go down the perfectionist rabbit hole on any of them' Thank you!
Hi! I’m in my first play in a week and they want a 50 word bio for the programme to go with our headshots. Even the samples they sent us had actors referring to their previous work though. As this is my first performance, what sort of thing should I write?
It seems like most major actors got their first roles when they were between the ages of 14-18. And most celebrities got famous at a similar age. I am 20 now and am feeling like I have missed the chance to start my acting career. I know I could get some roles, but it feels like it’s too late for me to work towards a leading role in a major picture.
This is a Sag-Aftra agency … I was on the phone with the agent for 1 hour and 30 minutes and he basically was telling me their “moto” of their agency and educating me about the industry (some information that I already knew, and some I didn’t) He then looked at my resume and said I lacked training (I have on-camera, voice,improv, and theater class) as training, he said since I’m young that casting directors will be more lenient but he started recommending these classes which I believe he may be getting a cut from it because the class is owned by one of he’s clients and he post him alot. And then said I needed new pictures because you can see the “lights in my eyes” like what???? That’s suppose to happen so my eyes won’t look dead. He didn’t recommend me anyone until I emailed them a couple hours later saying I found a photographer to take my new pictures, and then he emailed me back sending me a different photographer saying I should check them out like Umm okay ??? Next.. he says I need knew footage (I use my recent self tape for my reels) I honestly forgot what he complained about, but he said that my acting was good so idk ??? He gave me advice about correcting my resume such as capitalizing certain words, putting the production name instead of the characters name etc… so I appreciate that. At the end of the meeting he said once I do all this, then he would be interested in potentially signing me. The meeting happened on Monday and he emailed me yesterday basically telling me to hurry because this is a good season for young actors like me that play teenagers to get booked. If you were me, would you sign with them or wait a couple months to re-submit to other agencies.
Basically since I started creating online comedy sketches a guy I know who has to the ‘only’ actor/ filmmaker out of everyone has started suddenly doing comedy sketches too. He has never done anything like it before but now suddenly here it is and I’m also noticing similarities between my characters and sketches each week. He also won’t collaborate if I ask.
So I didn't get this from a good or reputable source, it was some dude I met in one of my FB groups, I've since blocked him but when I told him about wanting to lose weight, etc and always (even when I was young and thinner) wanted to be more of a sexy, bombshell type, this dude suggested I should become a character actor. He wasn't a looker himself and seemed to have unrealistic goals for himself considering his back story and the FB group we met in was for oppressed, poor people, etc. He was 42 and I'm 39, so I guess you can say we both had dreams that weren't recognized ever. IMO, he had no clue how the industry worked by the way he talked to me and gave me advice, etc. For the record, I'm not actually planning to break into Hollywood at my age, etc but I still want to become famous somehow before I die, etc. But his advice got me wondering tonight, why is it, "unattractive people" are encouraged to become character actors in Hollywood?
How can you overcome or subvert your limitations as an actor?
I recently have moved to Atlanta GA for my professional acting career to succeed. I turned 24 this February and before submitting to agents I got new professional headshots , uploaded my reel footage , monologue clips onto my casting networks and actors access and want to book my first professional work in Spanish soap operas and have also been taking acting classes consistently. Is it bad if I’m eager to become a working actor and doing all the right things to pursue this career ? I’m doing all the right things also have had panic attacks. I’m open to meeting new acting friends to help me
**It’s A Big Club And You Ain't in It: How Pay-to-Play Casting Workshops Rob Society of** **Theater Arts, Imperil Our Culture As a Whole, And How We Can Fix It** By Jalopi Sunshine The Theater is the oldest temple of humankind. It is truly sacred. Older than God, older than religion. Older than culture. It is a Temple. Acting is one of the oldest professions. It is in our primal nature to tell stories, mimic creatures we saw in the wild, and regale our tribe with tall tales to inspire, uplift, make us laugh, or warn us of danger. Theater is sacred, it is primal, carnal, and hardwired into our consciousness. It is how we evolved. I am here to write to all the actors of the world, to all the struggling brilliant artists out there that have so much to give and are obscured by shadows, to warn you, and the public, that culture itself is in peril and decline. There is a dynamic within our industry that is both counterintuitive in terms of producing content and work, and barely hides the blatantly predatory, mafioso, and exploitive practice of pay-to-play castings. Actors, generally speaking do not make a lot of money, we are all generally hustling, working a survival job, or two, to support our art form. If we do get paid for actually acting, it is likely gone within a week or two. I want you to imagine a world where every time you wanted to find a job you had to slide some cash to the hiring manager to simply be in the room or zoom. I want you to imagine what kind of society that would create. It’s a dystopian fever dream, or for all of you Triangle Farmers, a pyramid scheme. That is precisely what is happening within the acting community today. As a casting director, your job is to find the right people for the right role, that is what you do, that is your role, and more importantly your responsibility. Our job as actors is to perform with the best of our abilities and pray to Dionysus that we execute the role in a way that is true to the story being told. So if I were to analyze this logically, and try to make sense of this, I must pose this question: Why are we paying you to do your job? What can you possibly gain from 75$ out the pocket of a starving artist and another human beings hopes and dreams? The way I see things, by showing up, and performing, we are your raison d’être. Why are you charging us to help you do your job? We know you are getting paid by someone, but is the compensation for your labor so insufficient that you must squeeze an extra two hundred dollars here and there from people who are simply trying to do their job? Or is it simply greed and the almighty dollar bill? Is it a way of gatekeeping so that the people who actually land roles are simply the elite? Why? We have a word for this, plutocracy. Here’s why this is counterintuitive on the casting side: you aren’t seeing people that can breathe literal life into the stories and roles they take on. The consequences of this are dire, and apparently for some, very lucrative if you can put your conscience in your back pocket long enough to prey on people’s hopes and dreams. But it also poses a danger for the sacred crafts of storytelling, acting, and theater, because thousands of characters are simply not on your radar. If we need diversity for your productions, it is there, we are there, right under your nose, knocking on the door with a welcoming hand. Are you really going to allow shortsighted greed to eclipse what could be an opportunity to cement your legacy as someone who opened the door for someone who’s performance inspires the primal catharsis of a well played character, and uplifts humanity? This seems silly to me, and I pity you. As actors, we choose this life, out of respect for the craft and those that came before us we will toil ad infinitum. But we also have a responsibility to protect this ancient ritual from forces that seek to exploit our craft and bastardize our art for some petty pocket money. We are all responsible for this mess. And it must be fixed, and soon, or I fear that our sacred ancient ritual will be hollowed out, gutted, and placed on the sacrificial altar of the almighty dollar. The solution to this conundrum is kind, compassionate, easily doable and beneficial for everyone: Stop exploiting our labor. Stop nickel and diming our laborers who simply wish to perform to the best of our abilities and give everyone who bravely throws their hat in the ring a fighting chance. We too are workers. End pay to play Casting Director Workshops. It is wrong, it is unethical, far too common, and it is predacious. End the exploitation of artists who simply want to share their sacred gift to the world. It’s going to be okay. I promise you, the works that will be created and the people who give life to the characters will not disappoint.
Hi guys, I have previously posted here and had some young actors reach out to me in DM's asking for advice about acting in NYC. One in particular started asking me about NYC acting classes and the business and it ended up becoming a discussion about law school lol, you know who you are. I had to get a new Reddit handle which is almost identical to my last reddit name moq9981. I didnt know if you deleted your account it was permenanet on Reddit (unlike Instagram). As such I lost all my old DM's and didn't make a record of who I was talking to. If any of you guys still have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me again and I would be more than happy to answer any questions.
Hey Reddit, I was always wondering about burps cartoons and how were they done. I was was told that you can tell that a voice actor burps for a cartoon character is when the burp has the exact same pitch from the voice actor and if it sounds natural vs exaggerated. However, a few clips come into mind where I'm not sure if the voice actors were doing it or not. Some of the links I have are just a few examples of when I'm not sure it's the voice actor is actually burping or not. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OU1KdkVIDg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgEK7zHiuuM (0:43-0:45, the last 2 before she tells them to cut it out.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epEtKOhYlsc (0:22-0:24) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lh8WDvpRR84 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ifr8ySwJT9E (1:50-2:31) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h895ZCuS-MQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw6P2Vipf1Y(The last one) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ06QNv_o30 I was wondering if you can help a fellow redditor out too see if the burps are coming from the voice actors or not. This maybe a weird request, but help is sure appreciated.
I’ve never acted so I’m still learning. Would love some tips.
I chanced upon this really great article from Brene Brown, and it got me thinking - as an actor, we often find ourselves craving an environment that allows us to be vulnerable. The question is, how have directors fostered vulnerability without burdening you with too much personal information?The article is not directly film-related, and yet I felt myself immediately applying it to my experience acting and being directed. What do you think?

Hi everyone, first time posting on here, but I saw on social media that Flairbox are running a monologue competition, and each entry is **guaranteed to get feedback from an industry professional.** It's to raise funds for Turkey and Syria, and it's open until the 16th March. I think you can be from anywhere in the world. The casting directors will pick their favourite one and also the one with the most 'claps' will win acting industry prizes too. Here's my entry and the details to enter!
