Looking for Acting Experience watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking to gain Acting experience but unsure of how to start. I've contacted agencies but they require a showreel but I haven't been involved in many projects bar one.


    All support is appreciated.

    A good way to get a bit of experience going is to get some friends together and make your own shows or films. If this is a bit difficult because of lack of resources, then try seeing if you can get parts in student films. There's loads of college and uni students out there making films for their coursework and they need people to act in it. I've seen quite a few people looking for actors to play characters for them. If you're still at a loss, see if you might be able to join a local theatre group. They will all rehearse together and will be associated with the theatre itself. When they put on shows, you'll be able to audition for parts and get some real stage experience. Even though you may not be looking for stage work, it's a great place to work on and show off your skills.
