100% Guaranteed Acting Career Sucess!
You know what I hate … well lots of things actually , homophobia, transphobia, racism, war , duplicitous lying self serving politicians, tv programmes going on one series too many, VAR …you know all the obvious ones oh and cherries ( ugh ! Glacé, Morello, whatever, the fruit of the devil in my humble opinion ) ….yeah I hate all the obvious things … but when it comes to our industry one thing I really hate is actors being taken advantage of … I hate the use of the word GUARANTEE – you know the sort of thing I’m talking about;
“Follow my amazing 26 step guide to how to guarantee to get you in the room”
“ Buy this book and it will guarantee you will be a working actor within 12 days of reading it “
“Attend this workshop and it will guarantee that you will be walking the red carpet within 12 months of completing”
…you know those guarantees – or as they are more commonly known – b*****it!
The simple fact of the matter is there is no guarantee in this industry , there is no magic bullet , there is no magical route to follow to ‘guarantee ‘ anything in this business – yeah sure there are steps to take that can increase your chances , there are hundreds of classes out there offering different nuggets and gems of advice – obviously I love what we offer here at Act4tv, but I honestly believe that all actors should have a good look around and see what is on offer and realise what they need and go after that … unless of course any of those classes, courses, workshops have a guarantee attached to them.
I honestly wish I could say to any actors out there do this, this, and this and I will guarantee that within x amount of time you will receive everything you ever hoped and dreamed of … but it just doesn’t work like that – you can take all the right steps , be a brilliant actor ,work constantly to improve your craft and give yourself the very best chance , hustle hustle hustle and hustle some more and still there is absolutely no guarantee that you will get your just desserts, you might , and I really do hope that you do , but you might not … there’s just no guarantee !
So please take heed, look around at the myriad of things out there on offer to enrich you as an actor, do your research on what is being offered, and who is offering it …but please if it comes with any sort of ridiculous guarantee stay well clear as it’ll be b*****it – and that’s a guarantee !
