  • How can you tell good acting from bad acting?

    Best answer: Consider how the performance makes you feel. Good acting will incite an appropriate response from you - anger, laughter, inspiration, sadness. (Bad drama makes you laugh when you should cry, bad comedy makes you cry instead of laugh and really bad acting makes you yawn.) Are you noticing how... show more
    Best answer: Consider how the performance makes you feel. Good acting will incite an appropriate response from you - anger, laughter, inspiration, sadness. (Bad drama makes you laugh when you should cry, bad comedy makes you cry instead of laugh and really bad acting makes you yawn.)

    Are you noticing how comfortable/uncomfortable the chair is or how the popcorn tastes or are you lost in the story? With good acting, you forget you're watching a movie and get caught up in the characters and the story.

    Do you feel like the actor is going through what the character is going through? If the actor can make you feel like he's really been punched or more importantly that he really is scared or in love that's good acting. If you think he's faking it, that's bad acting.

    Did the actor surprise you with choices that fits the character and story? Bad acting is predictable. The emotions, reactions, pacing are all just what you expect. Good acting is not predictable. Maybe the actor expresses anger quietly instead of loudly or expresses grief differently then crying and wailing, or maybe there's a hint of vulnerability in his eye when he's trying to be tough. This means good actors are willing to make themselves vulnerable in their performance - willing to take risks. Bad actors are guarded.

    Good acting is reactive and good actors listen and you can see them listen and respond to what is happening in the scene. Bad actors are only acting when they're saying their lines. You can see good acting even when the actor is not speaking..

    Good actors know how to use their voice and body to convey a character. Bad actors just say their lines and move to their marks. Good actors move and talk in expressive ways.

    Of course, this is all subjective. Judging good acting and bad acting is subjective since different people have different tastes. But that's how I generally evaluate good acting.

  • Background or main?? I was on set for a commercial. Filmed scenes. Make up done. Director instructions and lighting for me. Will I appear ?

    Best answer: We have no idea - depends on how they choose to edit it. You could be cut completely.

    But hopefully you have a good experience being on set and filming. It gave you some real experience and maybe you learned some things regardless of what the final product is.

Yes, you re probably saying to yourself "Well then you re not meant for being in the theater industry." But I took a drama class last year and I did a play and I was completely fine acting in front of an audience, but when I try and do something in front of a bunch of kids, I get terrified. Theater seems hard to get into. What does it take to be in the theater industry? What s it like? Please be nice. I can get very sensitive to stuff easily.

  • I kinda want to become an actor?

    Best answer: First, if you've never done any acting you can't possibly even know if you'd enjoy it or have any talent. Thinking it might be the right career for you before you've actually tried it doesn't make sense! If you want to try, join an acting school and start learning. After a while, join a... show more
    Best answer: First, if you've never done any acting you can't possibly even know if you'd enjoy it or have any talent.
    Thinking it might be the right career for you before you've actually tried it doesn't make sense!
    If you want to try, join an acting school and start learning.
    After a while, join a community theatre and get some real experience.

    But do understand that it takes huge talent and on average about seven years of top-quality training and stage/film experience before you might get signed by an agent and get any real auditions. And even after all that, the best you've probably ever get is about ten days' paid acting work a year, in small roles in small productions.
    You's also have to be strong enough to accept constant criticism, rejection, mockery and failure. Yes - you would be judged ALL the time. It's part of the job.
    Being shy isn't a problem if you can leave your shyness behind when you stand up to act. Most of the actors I know are quite shy, but as soon as they start to act, they come alive!
    Give it a try - see if you like it enough to put up with all that!

    There is a drama club at my university and I am kind of sort of interested in acting in a play or two. Nothing too serious, just for fun. I have no experience(in drama, acting etc) and I don't sing. If they ask me to sing then I won't. I don't understand the concept of singing, I sound terrible and I don't even hmm along to songs. I am much more interested in acting. I also have social anxiety and I am generally a very nervous person. There is an audition coming up in a few days for a play. Should I go? There will be other people with more confidence, experience and knowledge. Is it worth a try? Just thinking about being on the spot is freaking me out.

  • Do actors provide input to the writers?

    Do actors have any say at all as far as how their characters will be portrayed and in which direction they will be taken or are they at the complete mercy of the writers?

  • Are Hollywood and TV executives wrong to cast normal human actors to play superheroes?

    Best answer: Hollywood does cast superheros but they keep their identities secret out of respect for their loved ones, obviously. The few times there have been leaks, people's lived were ruined. This is a very serious issue and I dont appreciate you making light of it with this post.

    Best answer: SHORT ANSWER: You don't. You can try acting at a non-professional level and that's a good way to star acting. But the acting business/professional acting is not interested in inexperience/untrained actors. Sorry.

    LONG ANSWER: The only people in the acting business interested in experienced actors are the scams and rip-off who prey on naive wannabes who mistakenly think they can just be "discovered". Companies invest a lot of money in their productions and trust that investment to trained and experienced professionals. They don't hold open auditions that anyone can go to. For most professional work you have to be invited to audition, usually through an agent.

    How professional casting works is this. The company hires a casting director (CD) to find qualified actors to audition. The CD writes a "breakdown" - a description of the project and the roles to be cast. These breakdowns are made available to talent agents, not to the general public. Agents review the breakdowns and submit the appropriate actors to audition. To submit means to send in an actor's professional headshot and resume listing their acting training, experience, special skills and links to a show reel demonstrating their previous screen work. If the CD is interested, they contact the agent to schedule an audition. And most professional productions in the US are union productions, which means preference will be give to actors who are members of the SAG-AFTRA actor's union.

    You can't just hire an agent - it's more like they choose you. Legitimate agents are paid a percentage of what an actor makes - never pay an agent up front. Since they only make money if an actor books a professional job, they are VERY picky about who they take on a clients. They need actors who have demonstrated that they can work at a professional level through their training and experience. And you can't just join an actor's union. You need a specific type of experience to be eligible to join.

    All of this is why you're not going to get into the acting business without any acting experience.

    But don't give up hope! If you're interested in acting (instead of trying to find some quick way to fame) you should give it a try. Take some acting classes. Audition for things like community theater and student films. Find out if you really love the work of acting - auditioning, analyzing a script, building a character, memorizing lines and blocking, rehearsing, taking direction, working with a cast and crew, as well as performing. And see if you are exceptionally good at it. If you can't get cast in community theater or a student film it's not going to be any easier at a more professional level.

    Once you have some training and experience, you can research the business end of acting. Understand the casting process, legal issues (contracts, taxes, unions, work permits and trust accounts for minors), marketing (headshots, resume, show reel, websites, social media, etc) and networking. It's show business, not a lottery. People are not just discovered off the street and given an acting career. A professional acting career is like starting and running a business where you are a product to be marketed and sold. You (or your parents if you're a minor) must be willing to step-up and take responsibility for any career you attempt.

    Good luck.

They had video of model and acting and they had professional model from Disney showing us how to walk on runway before the tryout. I was really excited for audition and I just did this for fun. They picked 6 out of 15 and I was one of them. They gave a booklet about the other audition and told us we don't have to pay and we can just give them my own portfolio that I did a month ago. Is this scam or actual professional company?
