Here's a little glimpse into a snippet from my 1-minute dramatic reel compilation, featuring some highlights from my past work.
I firmly believe that there are no small roles, and if the opportunities aren't knocking, why not become a 'maker' and craft some for yourself?
About 80% of my projects have come to life through my unconventional journey, fueled by my determination to create my own opportunities. I've never needed permission to make and create.
I'm well aware that the realms of acting, filmmaking, and the creative industries are characterized by instability, a project-to-project lifestyle. It's not a path for everyone, and those who choose it must embrace the hustle—stepping up is not just a phrase; it's a real requirement. To navigate this, you need the 'energy' to sustain and rise up to the challenges.
In this line of work, people will always have opinions about you. But here's a reminder: what they think is none of your business. There's no point in developing fears and anxieties over things beyond your control. Focus on what you can do effortlessly and with maximum impact, and you'll find yourself reaching new heights.
For my fellow actors, here are a couple of tips: 𝗙𝗼𝗰𝘂𝘀 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀: Dive into the craft itself, relishing the journey of acting. Let the joy of performing overshadow any fear of rejection. 𝗣𝗿𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝗞𝗲𝘆: Visualization of success can also be a powerful confidence-builder. 𝗕𝘂𝗶𝗹𝗱 𝗮 𝗣𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗼: Showcase a spectrum of roles, including those that defy any typecasting you might have faced. This diversity can captivate casting directors and demonstrate your versatility. 𝗣𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗼𝘀𝗼𝗽𝗵𝘆: See acting beyond roles, film, stage, and TV. Acting is the craft of being in the 'present,' and that is a gift—to enjoy what we have, which is only in the 'now.'
