You must be talented – Talent like I said before is your number one weapon because even if you manage to gain entry through sex, are you going to persuade the audience to like your acting through sex as well? So, you got to be talented first if you hope to get in and get further.
Since money and fame is involved, it is natural for everyone to believe he or she is talented, that’s what we call self believe which sometimes is self deception too. The main reason our movie scenes are full of shouting and crying by mediocre actors and actresses who are trying hard to impress is because of this self believe/deception.
But how really do you know if you are talented? Since acting is about pretending to be what you are not and assuming different characters at a different time and circumstances, you need to ask yourself:
If your answers to the above two questions is positive, you may just be a naturally gifted actor/actress. But it’s not just enough to answer it yourself, others have to say the same thing about you and you must have records to back it up!
If you are really good as you claim to be, people must have noticed it in you long before now. You must have been featured in one local acting or the other, like the school dramas. Do you have the video tapes of some of the local dramas you have been involved in? Goshh! That’s why you need to document those things at early stage. You need to be good at keeping history, it helps in your careers and the careers of your children. There is no better resume than documented experiences.
Attend Auditions – Audition is the fasted means of letting producers spot your talent without delay. Look for legitimate auditions and avail yourself to it, who knows, that may just be your breakthrough!
Approach a Registered Talent Agency – Having examined yourself and believed you are truly talented, your next and possibly final step is to approach a Legitimate Talent Agency in Nigeria and let them test you out.
Most of them may require that you register with some amount of money, so it will be a waste of fund if you are not really talented and go ahead and register. But if you are really talented in acting, no agency would want to trade the opportunity of discovering a star except if they too are not talented at spotting a star when they see one.
