Many people are diving into acting with the hopes of creating a career out of it. But what are the steps involved? Are there classes just for film or TV acting? What is the difference between acting on stage and acting on camera? Let's address the best places to learn film acting for serious actors looking to build a career for the future.
To answer the first part of the question, yes, there are classes for film acting all over the world. In fact, you can find a cheap ad for an expensive class in camera technique! In the world of scams, film acting classes rate top ten. Be careful out there though there are lots of sharks.
There are many acting classes which specialize in just about everything: mime, improv, soap operas, commercials, martial arts, stage combat, auditioning, sit-com, Shakespeare and yes, acting on camera. You name it, somewhere it is being taught!
Look on Internet audition sites, see message boards. Speak to acting friends. Just don't invest your fortune until you have really checked out the coach/school/class. Film acting rip-off stories fill every acting message board.
Be sure to research the school and instructors you are interested in. See where their training comes from, what they've done and what notable talent had also learned from them.
