Common questions about acting and modeling schools
How can an acting or modeling school help me?
Answer: Proper training from reputable acting schools will help reinforce the correct techniques required by top casting directors and agencies. Another important acting tip they can help with is putting together a good resume. There are certain standards and guidelines for an actor's resume. Your resume must be well-written and professional along with being in the proper format. List all of your past and current training, experiences, talents, skills, contacts, etc. A good acting school can not only look nice on your resume as well, but they can often help you write your resume, and help put you in some acting projects that you will be able to add to your acting resume. While an acting school may not be necessary for everybody, there is certainly no shame in going to a good acting school and it can only offer more benefits than not attending. A good school will teach you many valuable tools that can help you build a successful career in the industry.
What is the difference between a legitimate talent school, and one who just wants my money?
Answer: Just as there are many helpful, reputable talent agents, there are also a great number of fine schools. But there are some whose only purpose is to take your hard-earned money. When considering a school or teacher, watch for the same warning signals that apply to talent agents and photographers. Like the phony agent, a school or teacher may ask for an exorbitant registration fee and demand that you have photographs taken by their photographer. Be suspicious of teachers who do not have legitimate credentials, or who "claim" to produce TV shows, movies, or theatrical productions. None of the unions representing performers will recommend any schools. You may want to contact one of the Community Colleges in your area for classes in theatre, radio or television.
