We would all love to be famous, and acting is one such field which has made many people achieve fame and popularity. Now, the basic question is: Who can become a famous and successful actor?
The answer to this question is, it is the one who works hard on improving his skills and is able to connect with his audience. Given here are some acting tips and tricks which will prove to be useful for all aspiring actors.
While you are hearing the story, decide whether you like it, and try to judge whether the film made will be good enough. If yes, then you can go ahead with working in the film.
Understand Your Character
After reading the film as a whole, you need to understand your character in particular. Try to understand the personality of the character, his behavior traits, and think of how you will be preparing so as to do justice to the character. Get all your factual doubts about the character cleared before the actual shooting for the film starts.
Memorize Your Dialogs or Lines
The dialogs or lines of a particular character are written after intense research, and an actor is expected to say them clearly and artistically on the sets during the live shooting. Many people find memorizing the dialogs very difficult, especially if they are too long.
For memorizing long sentences, you can break them into parts and use signs and symbols to remember these parts. Stand in front of the mirror and practice to say the dialogs with perfection, confidence, and ease. You can take help from your co-actors, the director, and the art director for mastering your lines.
Every time you give a shot in the rehearsals, go to the director's desk and check out the video presentation. Discuss with the director, the various shortcomings in your shot and try to improve them in the next shot. Do not give up, till you get it completely right.
You can meditate for a few minutes before your shot, if you face concentration problems. Try to solve your stage fright problem (if any) as early as possible, to make giant strides as a fantastic actor. Drama artists should be aware of the public speaking techniques, as they face the audience directly.
Though these tips will help you know the basics of acting, practical knowledge is a must to become a good actor. Hard work, consistency, and determination are the keys to succeed in the field of acting.
