Acting: how to get noticed (seriously)

by Redd Blog on August 26, 2010


Serious Tips for Actors
1. Contextualise: everyone wants to be a star; everyone wants all the attention on them, that’s natural. However if you can view your role in the context of the whole film – you’re probably going to deliver a performance that feels “real”, or at least believable

2. Stand out: The other side of the coin is that we’ve got a lot of people delivering the same or similar dialogue – so remember you’ll be appearing on a small screen in the movie, make sure you’re eye-catching

3. Pick a tone and a mood: you could go with Arnold Stain’s harrowing but brilliant style above or vagabe’s hilarious entry – the only limit is your imagination

4. Enter more than one submission:  guys, just because an entry you sent in isn’t get the love of your peeps it’s by no means game over – have another go! Have another dozen goes. Try every single style you can think of

5. Get your friends to rate you! Hell, get your enemies to rate you. Just get those numbers up and you will be in a movie!
