Movie Acting Tips
Aspiring actors, we have included a new range of movie acting tips which may help you approach the opening titles roles. Redd Inc Director Dan Krige has some inciteful tips which will definitely help you to hone your acting performance and get high ratings.
Tip 1 – Take a risk
Any good acting peformance involves getting you outside your normal comfort zone so you can inhabit another character.
Tip 2 – There is no such thing as a small part
The actor’s job is to convince the audience that the character you are portraying is a living, breathing person.
Tip 3 – Get feedback from others
Before you film your performance it’s a great idea to get feedback from others on how convincing you are. Start with your nearest and dearest and work your way up to total strangers.
Tip 4 – Research your character
Do some background research on the character you are going to portray. Watch people who are similar, visit places where they might hang out, watch movies where similar characters are being portrayed.
You can also find some more humorous (and not so humorous) tips which may or may not help you with your movie acting.
