You Have To Want IT!

Wanting IT!

When you decided to become an actor you have made a decision some might find fascinating or a big mistake.  Those of us that have chosen to follow our dreams know this all to well.

Everyday when you wake up, it’s up to you.  You have to motivate yourself to find different ways to promote your talents and seek out creative outlets to fuel your dreams.

This is tricky…

If you watch programs about actors and singers, anything creative they show you the times they are having fun, relaxing waiting for the next gig or movie to come along.  That’s great…  That is what you strive for.  That’s what making it is all about.

BUT…

When you are first starting out in your career it’s hard to stay motivated and focused, especially here in LA.  Everything here, tends to pull your focus from what you strive for.  Don’t get me wrong, LA is great, but always keep in mind your creative drive and passion.

Don’t Get Comfortable.  

Let me explain….  Once you get comfortable you start to loose focus and that’s natural.  But, remember you only have six months, here at HWFAA, to prove not only to yourself, but those people that you have back home that you can pursue and achieve your passion to become a working actor, doing plays, indie films and shorts, commercials and anything else that you can show off your wares to.

It Goes Fast

I have said it once and I’ll say it again…

Six months seems like a long time, but in LA those 6 months are like dog years, so really you only have a short amount of time to get yourself together, perfecting your craft and prepping for the very near future.

So…  Stay focused…  Don’t get to comfortable…  And get ready for the best 6 months of your new life…

Following Your Passion

Following Your Passion

Deciding to become an actor or actress might sound crazy to some, but to you it’s a natural progression to share who you are with the world.  You just have to find the right place to start.

Los Angeles

Coming to LA sounds like a scene from a movie.  Things here move fast.  It’s a big place that connects all people from all walks of life.  When you move here it can be overwhelming…  Intimidating, really.

As an actor it is harder because you don’t know where to start, developing your craft, getting into classes and looking for experience on set or on stage.  That’s where we come in…

At Hollywood Film & Acting Academy, we are here to help you get adjusted to life not only as an actor, but life in LA!  We help nurture your passion and begin to turn it into a career.  We cut out the time you would spend searching for housing, classes and trying to learn how to market yourself to casting directors.

Being an actor or actress takes motivation, preparation and persistence.  Preparation is something we can help you with…  Motivation and persistence is something you have to bring with you and hold on to.  I’ll save that for the next entry.

Until then…

If Acting Is Your Passion…

Intro to Acting

So many people have different passions that span from cooking and baking to decorating and designing.  Things you can tangibly see how your are progressing and you can track your growth and knowledge…  

But with acting it’s different, no one can see any outward growth in an actor until they present their craft.  

If your just beginning your life as an actor, this might be difficult because you don’t know where to start or how to begin.  Everyday people come to Los Angeles to begin their pursuit of that dream.   Actors and Actress’s spend more than their fair share of their time just looking at what will give them the knowledge they need to start auditioning, trying to meet agents and begin to build a demo reel.  Sounds like alot of work to do…  Right?  Right!

That’s where we come in.  

HWFAA gives you the knowledge and training you need to navigate the open waters here in LA and the entertainment industry.  If you are a beginner looking to pursue your career in the entertainment capital of the world or if you have been in LA, going through more acting classes you care to admit, HWFAA can help save you time and money.

It’s about the complete package.  Not just your talent!

It’s true, Talent is what it’s about, but in Hollywood you have to have a whole package.  This is what we do.  Between  acting and marketing techniques you will stay busy honing your craft and putting yourself out to casting directors and agents.

Because 6 months moves fast, you will want to do everything you will need to get done before you leave HWFAA.  It moves faster than you think.

This is your time to learn and grow as an artist and as a person.  Learning about who you are and who you want to be.  HWFAA let’s you do that.
